Hello fairy!

Hello lovely people,

Are you all back in the swing of 'normal' life after Christmas and New Year?!
Since I'm on a career break (did I mention that at all?!) it's less change for me but I did take a break from coursework and let the cleaning slip a little so I have picked that all up again this week.

I have also been planning away in my head to do some different crafty projects and more tutorials on my blog this year.

I also finally got myself on Twitter so if anyone wants to follow along you can find me under @KatWaskett.

Phew, after that little bit of waffle, it's time for me to share the new Creative Inspirations challenge and this week we have the theme...


This card saw me in full-on girly mode and using my fave colour combo and some of my fave papers too.
So, it's no wonder I really love how it turned out!

The die cut 'hello' has been unused in my stash for a while but it was the perfect match for this image, and I have layered up 2 die cuts to make it a little sturdier.

Hello card featuring Tiddly Inks fairy image

I grabbed a load of Tiddly Inks images in the Black Friday sale last year ('last year' still sounds kind of odd to me!) so I am trying to find the time to play with them all...starting with this gorgeous little fairy :-)
