Hello lovely people,

Firstly I would like to give a huge welcome to my newest followers; thank you so much for joining me in my little crafty world :-)

Secondly, I apologise for not being around in blogland very much over the last week as I have been struggling with migraines - grrrr.

Thirdly, it is time for a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and our theme this week is 'Wings' so it will be no surprise that I have gone for a fairy ;-)
Don't you just love when you have new stash to play with?  I got to play with quite a bit of new stash on this card - the papers, the cute tag sentiments from LOTV and the pearl swirls are all new.

Looking at my card you could be forgiven for thinking that our theme this week is 'Pearls' as I do seem to have used rather a lot of them but I do love them!

The last time I coloured this cutie I went for girly pink colours so this time I wanted to change it up a bit and go for something a bit fresher and brighter and I love how it came out :-)

Card recipe;
Image: Wryn Fairy Friends from Tiddly Inks
DP: Bo Bunny - Prairie Chic
Label shape: cut with Cricut
Sentiments: Sentiment tags from LOTV
Flowers: from stash
Pearls: From The Hobby House

Copic colours;

Wings: BG0000/000
Mushroom: E11/13/15 & E50/30/21
Flowers: R81/83/85

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

1.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
2.  Cute Card Thursday (fly like a bird)
3.  Divas by Design (pretty pearls)
4.  Bunny Zoe (wings)

Thankfully I have a quiet weekend ahead so I plan to do some serious relaxing, go for a nice long walk with Dr Hubby and maybe even squeeze in a bit of crafting ;-)

For some more winged loveliness pop over to Totally Gorjuss and see what the rest of the DT have created.  I hope you can join in our challenge for a chance to win a gift voucher for the fantastic Bunny Zoe's Crafts shop :-)

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx

Hi Kat

Oooh well you knew I'd love this card, didn't you? One of my favourite Wryns... she's sitting in my digi image files waiting to be used.. and you've made such a fantastic job of her - I really love your layout and colour choice.

It's always lovely to read your blog posts.. and also your comments on my cards... you sound really bright and breezy.. but I'm so sorry that you've been having migraines... I've only had a few, and generally worse in the eye disturbance part rather than the headache - which tends to follow for a couple of days. Really hope you're feeling better now..

PS... Do you think if we keep on pushing, TG may go fortnightly or split us into two teams.... would be so much better!
