Good morning all, and thanks for joining me.

Oh my life just seems to get more hectic, do you find that????

Hope you had a good weekend, and that this week has started well...we have good news here and our little Elliot managed to breath all by himself at the weekend and last night when we saw him he wasn't even on the oxygen...he is such a fighter and has done so well. He is even out of his incubator and in a little cot....

I am so excited as we will get too have our first cuddle soon...


So in between hospital visits, I have been getting another magazine commission more dt work.....speaking of I thought I would share one of my recent makes using the new fairy stamps...

I started with a piece of stencil card, and stamped the fairy, and then added her mask...


Next I added the stencil and then started some blending....starting with yellow...

Then orange

Through to red

And finally some fine wine,,,(well it would be rude not too...!!!)

Do remember to work on the blending area where the two colours join..

I stamped the sentiment first in the radiance ink pad and then adding some colour

Next I added some colour to the fairy

And some Perga glitter , a real must have

Some matting and layering and some Inka gold for edging...I do love to do this

These are such fabulous and magical stamps..

Fairy magic...we all need a bit of that every so often....

A Magic wand to help me with my craft list , workshops in Hazel grove tomorrow, The Paperwarehouse in Kendal on Thursday and Clarity Cumbria on Saturday...

But before I go...I just wanted to share this special photo with you....

Much love and hugs
