the snow has all gone and it's warmed up
thank heavens we just don't do well in bad weather here in UK.

my  postie has just dropped off some parcels of more crafting goodies
bless him he leaves a stone lighter me some Delicious  wool
 im seriously thinking of getting a spinning wheel to try my hand at  doing my own yarn but must admit  looks alot of work im not sure if i would be able to do it without going to classes 
will see once i have had a think on it.
im busy with more DT work so might not be posting as much
i have been watching the TV shows with Sheena  and Leann over on Create and Craft
Great shows lots of laughter with hints and tips thrown in
hope you managed to catch some of the shows

flower fairy in water colour


good morning all 

i don’t know what’s happened to the weather but it feels a lot warmer today  the snow is melting

not complaining at all….. about time…. anyway my card for today is a little flower fairy and the epiphany

i water coloured her in with water colour paints then added some  glitter to her wings  with a touch of spray and shine to protect the painting and give it a soft sheen.

matted onto silver mirri and core-dination onto a white card blank with some satin ribbon and a few flowers the epiphany heart was then used for the heart cut from core-dination card stock to match

thank you for popping by
