Quixotic Challenge # 12 - I Believe In Fairies......


Hi there Peeps!

Today I have a card to show you today featuring my gorgeous new image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This is one of the Ching-Chou Kuick stamps and if you decide to buy it 50% of the proceeds will go towards the Haiti relief operation.

I admit I was a bit nervous when I started colouring the image because it's very intricate, but I needn't have worried as it came together beautifully...... and I defy you not to add copious amounts of glitz and glitter when you play with this beauty!!

My papers are Basic Grey Blush and the embellies have been cut from parts of one of the sheets too...... I love doing this! I punched out a couple of butterflies and added a Melissa Frances rub-on sentiment. I can't wait to work on my next image and will be buying more very soon! The service was fab and I received my stamps from the US within a week!! Check out the Sweet Pea Stamps blog for more information.


I'm entering my card into this week's Quixotic Challenge where they have a fairy theme..... perfect! Hop over for a look at the gorgeous DT cards, they're delish!

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a look, much appreciated ;o)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
