Slowly coming round

Papers Shabby Princess free download
Card from stash (some years old but all from Paper Mill shop) and a fantastic match for the paper. Knew it would come in handy if I kept it long enough. Alphabet stamps are years old too from Jennie Hulme at The stamp connection. Just checked and she trades as www.theartisticstamper.com but I couldn't find that alphabet which I suspect I've had for about ten years.
Brads are Making memories and I got them from Arty Miss last week. It's the first time I've bought from them and their offers seem too good to be true or gone by the time you check them out but this time I did succumb quickly enough

Base card is Craftwork Cards Back to basics printed with a design from the Funky Fairy Boys and Girls collection. The Funky Fairy herself is coloured with promarkers (I've not got many so my colour scheme was decided for me almost).
Background is some lilac card which I've been very sparing with 'cos I don't know where it came from and I've not got much left. Hope I can find some more. I love to make those mounts smaller so that it gives the image more impact. Think you'll have spotted cuttlebug embossing and nesties.

Must still be weary as managed to delete a whole load of stuff instead of centering it as I meant to-ah well. Keep to the side and don't try to be clever.

This week I've made a couple of cards for family birthdays and thanks to Paul at Crafty blogocks my printing has improved dramatically and I visited Shabby Princess and got a great free paper download which I used to make the blokey card . Thanks also to Shaz at Funky fairys papercrafts I've now got a proper funky fairy 'cos she's made her available as a download.
