Wednesday 26 November 2014


Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers. I hope that you are all well and enjoying a great week. Its the 26th November and this time next month Christmas will all be over bar the leftovers . Its going to be here before we know it . I always plan to have everything done but never do always loads of  last minute stuff. I tell myself its part of the fun not sure about that though .
Today sees the launch of a new challenge at Crafting by Designs and  our theme this week is Fairies. Our sponsor this week is  Delicious Doodles with a great prize of 4 Digi stamps.

Prize - 4 digis
For my card I chose the stamp Ivy Fairy its a bit of a different fairy as she only has ivy for clothes. I did think of giving her a little woolly vest but thought it may upset the designer!! So here she is
