Look I got a new toy !!


This week I had a lovely package from my blogging friend and all round prisma princess Rebekah - she sent me a set of her spare prisma pencils !!!!

Rebekah I cannot thank you enough - I have so enjoyed playing with them and I just know that many contented crafty hours are still to come with them. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU X

Maybe you can tell, I am soooooooooo thrilled and set to this weekend to have a go with them. Now these little beauties were a new experience for me but I don't think I've done too bad a job for a newbie - what do you think ? Although I really need to practise colouring and shading hair - if you know of a good tutorial let me know x

This gorg' paper is from a stash of my fav basic grey sheets and my stamp is a digi - Silver fairy by wee stamps at cuddly buddly isn't she just so pretty.

I used the gorgeous sketch over at a gem of a challenge, although I did move the sentiment - hope that's ok x

All the edges are distressed with my tim holtz paper distresser, crumpled and then chalked up to highlight the edges.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

A gem of a challenge
- Gorg' sketch
Basic grey challenges - Shabby chic
Paper sundaes - Vintage/shabby chic
Floweret Challenge - Spring/green (oops missed the dealine)

Thanks for visiting me today - I hope you enjoy the rest of your day x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
