What an angel


Somebody once gave me a stamped image of this stamp and I have always wished I had the stamp so I was delighted when I found one for sale on Facebook and amazed when I received it to find it was a brand new stamps too. She is an Elisabeth Bell image for Whiff of Joy and she has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I have added stickles to her wings and used a Sakura clearstar pen on the necklace, pocket and jeans. The papers are Papermania Lucy Cromwell. If you are a regular visitor you will know I am a huge fan on Elisabeth Bell's work and when I saw the chance to be a Guest Designer at The Digi Belles Design Team I just had to have a go. You have to use this fab sketch so wish me luck. 

I love purple and thought I would try teaming it with lovely soft greens for a fresh Spring look. This image is perfect for Mother's Day so here is my first Mother's Day card. I need to make several ready for my craft fairs starting next month. I've used a MS border punch, Cheery Lynn butterfly die and my lovely new precious hearts die from My Crafty Heart. I added a pearl heart from Meiflower  and some pearls to the butterfly. This has been cut twice, once from purple card and once from some very fine handmade sparkly paper.
