Strawberry Fairy - Digi Doodles

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower. Thank you all so much for the lovely comments you have left recently I really do appreciate them.
I think I got a little stuck on the vintage theme and decided to do another one. I used Strawberry Fairy from Digi Doodles, they really do have a great variety of images.


She is cut using Spellbinders labels 22 and I made a faux nestie to highlight the colour. Flowers and corner are from WOC. Doily from Ebay. Leaves, ribbon, strawberry charm and pearl are from my stash. It is mounted on Bazzil basic cardstock.


She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils and I liberally added stickles to her wings. The edges of everything are coloured with distress ink.



I finally got around to doing something new, which is adding stitching to a card. I actually treat myself to a new sewing machine a couple of weeks ago specifically for cardmaking as my old one is really heavy to move around. Think I need to practice a little more as it is so long since I did any sewing that my lines are a little wonky.


I am entering the following challenges :-


Thank you so much for looking. Hope you have a good week. Don't know what I am going to do with my time now that the Olympics have ended, and what a great closing ceremony last night.

OMG Eileen! I've been hiding in the BatCave for a few days and when I emerge, blinking at the sun, you've put loads of new cards up! You have made my wife a fan, she loves the card below and is threatening to become a follower of yours, so keep an eye out for Jo joining. I reserve the right to say nothing about this card, although I love what you have done, I can't comment on the image because they sponsor us at PM's too and we have to use their images every four weeks or so, I'm not the biggest fan in the world of their art but I always try my best given what we are given. I will probably end up in trouble now but I'm used to that and I stand by my right to like what I want.
Not had a great day today but still enjoyed your pretty cards, they always give me a little lift. I liked what you said about my 'Sunday' post, you must have been to my hometown a few times then, I come from Redcar. We so must get together sometime to have a natter about where we are from. Nice to know I get on with a fellow north easterner.
Take Care
