Sketch 'N Stash - Hello Little Friend!

Whoo-Hooo, Happy New Year! Has everyone had fun over the festive season? I hope so. So this is my first post of the year & it feels good to be back. I did no crafting over Xmas & I missed it so! Anyway, without further ado, let me show you the card I made using gorgeous Michelle's fab sketch at Sketch & Stash this fortnight.

I coloured this super cute Sugar Nellie image - Hello Little Friend with Distress Inks. The paper is Prima - Botanicals & I used a Spellbinders die to cut the flower. The leaves were cut from a Doo Hickey & McGill punch. That all oldish stash. The ribbon I picked up from Hobbycraft, but hadn't used till now. Obviously, I can't colour a fairy without also using lots of Glamour Dust on the wings & a touch of Viva Decor gold glitter liner on her wand.

Here's the sketch for you to use. I can't wait to see what you make of it. Maybe you got new crafting stash for Xmas too. Be sure to let us know what you got!

We are also thrilled to be sponsored by the wonderful Heather Ellis, home of the Pure Innocence images. She is offering our lucky winner a choice of 3 of her gorgeous digis.

I am also entering this card at Simon Says Stamp were this week 'Anything Goes'. 

At ABC Challenge, G is for Green. I took this photo inartificial light. it's much more green IRL.

So there you go. Sorry this is a bit late. Ben has been poorly this morning, though seems to be perking up a bit now. 

Wishing everyone all the best for a wonderful & prosperous 2012!

Big Hugs,
Andie xx
