Doing another happy dance!

Hi Everyone

Oh my goodness! I've been asked to be a member of the Prickley Pear Design Team! I am so excited and feel so honoured to be asked to be on their team - more excuses to craft! yippee! I would also like to congratulate all the other new team members - I cannot wait to get to know you all. As soon as I have all of my new team mates blog addresses I will add them to my side bar so that you can visit them too.

I only have the one card for you today as I've been too busy celebrating.

This card uses one of the Flower Fairy stamps produced in the UK by Personal Impressions, her name is Rose Fairy. I decided that for a change I would colour her with watercolours (yes I know no copics - I'm trying to be good and use some of my other mediums but how long that will last I don't know) and I also stamped the image with Versamark and embossed her with detail silver embossing powder. To add some dimension to her I punched out some small leaves from vellum and used them to make her skirt and a small daisy from yellow paper for her skirt top. I finished the card by using the same vellum for the backing paper and added some gold liquid pearls to the top of her dress.

Here is a closer look at Rose - I think she is so beautiful.

Well that's it for this post as I just wanted to give you my good news, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards that are sat waiting to be assembled.

Thank you to everyone for all the kind get well wishes - I think they may have started working, I really appreciate them.

Crafty hugs Donna xx
