I cannot believe its Thursday already, where has this week gone. I have been so busy making samples for Crafters Companion Monday TV show on Create and Craft, and I haven't been going
to bed until the early hours, I have been trying to keep up with answering everyone who has commented but if I haven't visited you this week please forgive me I will try to get round to you as soon as these samples go off tomorrow.

Well its time for
Lili of the Valley Challenge again. This week we have another great sketch from our very own talented Donalda, and a chance for one of you to be Guest Designer for 2 weeks, so if you would like to see the cards made by our talented DT members and join in the Challenge this week just click HERE


A bit of a change from me this week, I havn't done any decoupage for ages and really enjoyed cutting out and 3ding this lovely little Primrose Fairy from Lili of the Valley, I have added Glamour Dust to her wings and the edge of her dress, she comes in a pack with 6 other cute little fairies and some great backgrounds. I have used a mixture of my scrap papers again, I know a couple of them are Basic Grey and the Stripe one is a Summer Driggs Download. Look at my fabulous raffia Ribbon that was a RAK from my very dear friend the fabulous Rach, I have been drooling over this ribbon for ages so thank you so much Rach Mwah!!!!. The rest from stash.


A view of the 3ding, I used Pinflair Glue and shaped the different layers


Thanks for looking
Hugs
