A FAIRY TALE.................................

Morning all!

Another damp day boohoo but there is a slight glimpse of sunshine trying to break through, so fingers crossed for a little sun! Well did any of you watch Silent Witness last night??, poor Harry got killed, so shocked and I didn't expect that lol!, so must watch it tonight to see what happens next heheheh...................I lead such a busy, hectic life lol!!!

Anyway onto my wee card and I have used a great image from the urber fab Sugar Nellie and it's one of their new Sassy girls. These stamps are definitely my fave Sugar Nellie stamps at the mo, just so gorgeous and love their big eyes and serene expressions. Again I left this card very simple and clean, love just focusing on the image cause they are just so beautiful and I have teamed her up with some more lovely papers from Crafters Companion S.W.A.L.K cdrom collection 1 & 2 and my new heart punch from Martha Stewart.

This beauty is going into the following Challenges :-
The Sugar Bowl  # 51 ~ Kiki's Fab Sketch
I love Promarkers # 49 ~ KISS

Fairy Tale ~ Simply Sassy ~ Sugar Nellie

Gorgeous card Vicky, fab image and lovely colours! I can't believe Harry is dead either, was not expecting that! It was more like an episode of SPOOKS than SILENT WITNESS!

Jules said...

Oh Vicky this is gorgeous.

Love your colour choices and the beautiful colouring of your image.

Can I pick your brains please? How do your "pins" work? Do they have a type of end cap that you glue on to stop the recipient stabbing themselves or do you cover the end with paper or glue?

I have often wondered.

Love Jules xx
