In the Wind!

Well it's a lovely day here today (for a change).. usually I am away playing on a Saturday but I have a problem with my shoulder/neck/arm (again) so no bowling for me until further notice I'm afraid.... and even more annoyingly is I KNOW I'm going to feel guilty for being in the craftie space when I should really be outside doing some more tidying in the garden (one of the downsides about trying to sell your house is you have a ridiculous notion that it has to look like it's in the pages of Ideal Home ALL the time... which is impossible... well it is for me anyway!!!)
But I promised myself I would spend today catching up on posts and looking at everyone's blogs, doing a wee bit of crafting ... oh and I HAVE to tidy the work desk (cos I ain't got any space left...lol).
I treated myself to some new Lili of the Valley stamps. I know everyone rushed to buy them when they were released last month and I promised myself I would have the gorgeous Dandelion Clock if nothing else.... such good intentions.... several stamps later I finally added Dandelion cutie to the basket!
So here she is! She's coloured with a mixture of chalks and distress inks and some stickles. I have recently discovered 'Nitwit' designer papers - love them! Have used some from the 'In the Meadow' collection for this, the 'dream' text is from Inkadinkadoo and the lace, ribbon and flowers are from my stash. I discovered the sparkly blue flower charm in the embellie box and just HAD to put that on it too!
The LOTV  Challenge Blog had a fab sketch to follow this week!
Charizma Cards challenge is Mythical or Fantasy - and little fairy here has been entered!

  2. So exquisite and charming to say the least... love the soft hues and the gentle tones. The flowers on the top left are extremely eye-catching.

    I know what you mean by feeling guilty about being in the art room when we should be out doing some physical activity... I go through that a lot and I have to really motivate myself to go and exercise.

    Daffodils keeps ringing in my mind. I will never forget you for reciting that unforgettable poem to me.

    Have a pleasant weekend,

    Monica
