Fairy Sweet & Cute

Well it's the school holidays for us, there's a couple of play days arranged for Bobby, other than that not much going on.  My daughter is working hard on her A-levels so I'm helping her with them, by quizzing her, bless her I don't know how she keeps all that information in her brain.  She has just been to London last week for her sociology class and has a trip on the 3rd March to Auschwitz, to which I am very proud of her for getting a place,as there was only two places for her school.  Which reminds me I need to go and get her some thermals, I thinks she will definitely need them.

Today I am reminding you of our challenge for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Goes' So you can use whatever you like for this challenge.  I really adore this stamp sheet from Penny Black called Fairy Sweet, the images are so cute.  I've used it for a card for my Sisters birthday, not sure what I would call this card as the papers are a bit shabby chic with a touch of vintage.  Love the leaves which I made using some new Spellbinder dies to enhance the satin flowers.  I'm not very happy with the hair on my image, that is my downfall with my colouring and the thing I'm always disappointed with.  My Hubby keeps promising to buy me the Spectrum Noir colouring DVD's, but I'm still waiting, I need them to conquer this hair colouring I think.  Think I have the skin now, what a learning curve crafting is.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love, All Occasion Dies and Kraftycards.   Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!
