Hello lovely people,

Can you believe that with all the various sport on TV over the weekend I watched almost none of it!  Instead I had a lovely relaxing weekend with my brother and his girlfriend, including several long walks and two cream teas - with homemade scones and jam :-)

But now it's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps, prize as below;

I absolutely love fairy images and have quite a few in my collection from various designers so what did I do for this challenge?  Bought a new one - lol!
Once I had coloured her up I really felt she needed to be front and centre so have gone with a CAS design leaving lots of white space around her so she 'pops' off the card. Well, I hope that's the effect anyway!

Many of you know I am taking the skin and hair colouring class at Kit and Clowder and that's how I cam across this gorgeous image.  She was created in honour of the lovely Alyce who is the creator of the classes and a huge colouring inspiration to me.
I have to say I was super happy with how she turned out :-)
