I am 'Fairy' excited .... got a secret to tell you

Morning all, what a glorious day it is today ... I love days like this ... especially when I am off work :o)

Finally I can tell you my little secret. I am so excited to be joining the fab girlies as their newest DT member at Papertake Weekly!!!! The gorgeous Dawny P asked me if I would like to join them and of course I said YES! It is one of the first challenge blogs I can remember from when I first started my blog so I am thrilled to be part of it.

So the challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES ..... with the optional extra of using something you have had in your stash for ages.

Our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley - one lucky person who enters will win a voucher to spend, lucky devil!

I have really worked out of my comfort zone with this card using colours I don't usually use.I took my inspiration from these gorgeous Basic Grey papers I have had forever but never used. This pretty fairy is from Lili of the Valley and you can buy here HERE.


E - 000, 00, 11, 31, 43, 47
W - 00, 1, 3
R - 20
YR - 31
BG - 93, 96

Flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts, Magnolia and Crafty Feeling ..... and I found these yummy hat pins in my stash that were just the right colour!


Stamp with Fun - Sketch
Wild Orchid Crafts - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Flowers
Basic Grey - Sketch ... Cappella paper pad 6x6
Crazy 4 Challenges - Flowers

So there you go, first card for the team and I am rather happy to say the least. Do make sure you check out the rest of the Design Teams cards, they are just gorgeous as always.

My card will be on Ebay later today (lots of stamps on at the moment too)

Have a wonderful day xxx
