Autumn Forest Fairy Birthday card (Lacy Sunshine image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all about to have a wonderful weekend. We went to a big Footy Grand Final Parade in Melbourne today and it was a beautiful day. What a shame that in the back of my mind was a little niggling worry about terrorists, is everyone scared around the world? They have put us on high alert here as the police shot and killed a man this week who was planning to behead them. I wish everyone could find happiness and tolerance for all beliefs. I was determined not to let it stop me from taking the kids today though as I don't want them to intimidate us no matter how frightened we might be.

Anyway, onto a happier note here's another card I created for Autumn, this time I have used a little Autumn sweetie from Lacy Sunshine, isn't she adorable?

Little Florist Girl (Wee Stamps image)

Hello crafty friends,

I'm back with what I think must be one of my all-time favourite images as this is the 4th time I've created a card with her and it's not often I use the same image twice! I have added the other 3 cards below for comparisons, I think this is my fave (which is good as I should be getting a bit better each time hehe). I added a couple of different laces to the bottom of this and used a leafy die cut as I thought it looked similar to her leaves. You can find this gorgeous image at Wee Stamps



 Interesting to see how different they all are (glad they weren't all the same colours etc haha, that would have been embarrassing). The older ones all have a flourish from Flourish with a Bling.
