A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

DT Debut with Fancy SB Flowers

Happy Sunday lovely peeps!  Today I have some super exciting news to share with you all, which, by choice, I have been sitting on for the last two weeks awaiting my Debut Day!  I have been invited by the lovely Amelia of Challenges4Everybody to join her DT - my first EVER one guys so, firstly, I would like to thank Amelia and the lovely team for giving me such a warm welcome to the group :)

Our challenge for this next fortnight is sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo, who are offering a prize of
7 Digi Stamps to our 1st place winner!

The challenge, as always, is everyone's favourite ........... ANYTHING GOES

I have used the adorably sweet Fancy SB Flowers and here she is ....

Isn't she the cutest little thing?
I coloured this little poppet up with Copics - had a job getting a colour match to the papers, but I got there - kind of! :)  Her hat, pinny and shoes:  B93, B95, B97, BG93, BG96  Flower Pot:  E33, E51, E53  
I also paper pieced her little dress.
I used the beautiful Pion Design papers from Live & Love Crafts, as well as their cute little sewing spools. I threaded twine through the banner and then twisted around the spools.  The sentiment letters are computer generated, then distressed and inked.

Flowers are a mixture from LLCWOC and The Hobby House.  The heart pins and metal ribbon slider are also from The Hobby House - the ribbon slider I coloured up with Copics.

I added folded ribbon behind the image, a strip of lace, a butterfly, a splash of glitter and flat backed glitter gems and Voila!...... all done and ready for my fantastic Mum for Mother's Day.

I hope you like my little creation today and I look forward to seeing everyone's fabulous designs on the challenge page.
