Some wingless fairies.....

Here's some samples I made for Polkadoodles show on Create and Craft TV

Nikky is showing her fairy stamps, but I decided to make the girls without their wings, to show how versatile the stamps are - in each set you get the girl and her wings, which double up as a butterfly stamp.

Here's Maggie, my favourite, papers are from the new CD Creative Christmas. I cut the scallop circle using the Lacy Labels Cricut lite cartridge

Promarkers used:

Skin - blush and soft peach

clothes crimson and scarlet, warm grey 3

Hair buttercup and primrose

toadstool vanilla and burgundy

Here's the Gracie image that I coloured in my Promarker video - I perched her on the edge of a aperture. The inside was lined with a paper from All Around and Everywhere. The front was stamped and doodled with a floral stamp from the set

Here's Maxine....... again the papers are from All Around and Everywhere, and I used some corrugated card to cut out some Tim Holtz tattered flowers

Promarkers used:

skin - ivory and blush

clothes - vanilla, caramel, marsh green, pear green

Hair - umber, warm grey 4, warm grey 5

Sentiment - Hero Arts

We have had a lovely but exhausting weekend, Kiki had a lovely birthday, she looked all golden and glowing after her holiday in Portugal. It was great to see all the grandchildren. Max decided he wanted to cook something with me, so I said 'how about gingerbread men'. Off he trotted and came back wearing an apron and chefs hat - it's a serious business cooking with Ma. When they were cooked I sprinkled them with sugar, and he ate the heads off every single man before I found out what he was doing, so later in the day, a plate of headless and sugarless gingerbreads (he'd eaten the sugar too when I wasn't looking, for all I know he licked it off!) was passed around by the little chef . Naturally we ate every crumb and told him they were the yummiest ever......
