Pink and sparkly

Morning all just home from work and said I would post up a new card I was working on last night so here it is. This is a gorgeous digi stamp from karensdoodles she has such wonderful digis I love them all lol.
I have colored her with promarkers and added sparkle to her wings, wand, headpiece, dress and shoes :)
I have hand pierced the paper all around the edges of the papers and punched the flowers down the side of the light pink paper. the butterflies are a martha stewart punch around the page punch, the flowers and ribbon were part of a set I bought awhile ago don't know where I got them though lol

 Close up of the image not sure if you can see the glitter that well

good and bad day lol

Evening all well today the weather here in Dublin was crazy the winds were so wild they have taken down trees and braches and wheelie bins were all over the roads :( But there was a good side today well sort of we had the President of the U.S.A President Obama visit us today in Dublin it was really nice to see him even if it was only on the tv lol I couldn't get in to see him and michelle as I was in work that was the downside as I got stuck in traffic for over an hout on the bus in to work and then couldn't get out of town so ended up getting a taxi home :(.
Well anyway onto my card
I have recently come across Kenny K and his fab digi stamps and just had to purchase some of course lol so here she is this is Miss Thang! It's quite hard to see the glitter around the edges of the papers, the background paper is embossed with butterflies and flowers, the butterflies are martha stewart punch with silver gems and the flowers and from my stash box don't know where I got them :(

I'm Back :)

Hey all well i'm still a bit under the weather but have been feeling much better the last couple of days just a persistent cough and running nose but i'll live lol.Well as I was browsing the net I came across a fab site i'm sure most of you know about here is the link http://debscreations.ning.com/ the ladies on it are lovely and the work they produce is absolutely fabulous!!! so make sure you pop over to them and take a look if you haven't already. They also have a new challenge blog which you can find here http://emeraldfaeries.blogspot.com so make sure to pop in here too and play along with the challenge they have the cutest lil fairies i've ever seen. As I was on the site I was looking through the pages and seen one that said put your name here and win a prize well I did just that and I got to pick one of the faerie images it was sssoooo hard but I fell in love with Ally & Beeble it's such a cute digi so I really wanted to make something up so I made two cards and here they are hope you like them. The pictures didnt come out too great so you will have to use you imagination lol



So this is my autumnal Ally and Beeble lol I coloured them with promarkers, the flower petals have glossy accents on them, the wings are sprinkled with irridescent glitter and the laybird also has some black glitter on its spots and head. The papers and card are scraps that I found in my stash drawer lol and have used the poppy martha stewart punch and the butterfly punch with some sparkly gems.
