New fairy stamp

A very busy day ahead today as I am doing a craft fair tomorrow with my friend Lynsey. Really looking forward to a crafty chat all day and hopefully lots of sales too. I still have some stuff to make and stock to get ready so must not spend too much time on the laptop today. There's also a pile of ironing waiting.

We don't have any craft shops in Norfolk selling a wide range of stamps but I did pick up this gorgeous Nellie Snellen fairy. I just couldn't resist her, she is so sweet. She has been coloured with Promarkers. Papers are Basic Grey Wisteria and Euphoria. Flowers from Wild Orchid and Michaels and Crealie die cut leaves. I love these Crealie dies as the shapes just fall out of them once cut. I added some purple lace and a bow to finish.

I used the lovely sketch at Basic Grey and would like to enter the fairy tales challenge at CRAFT. I'll be back later with another card.
