Another Emerald Faerie

Evening!  Quick post before I hit the sack!  Been out today trying out mottie-bikes.  Have decided to go for full bike licence funds allowing so was getting a feel of what's available.  Have not had much interest mainly as I always thought they'd be way to big for me at just under 5ft 2 but all that changed a couple of weeks ago when I saw a suzuki which was really low I thought I could ride that!  My OH has a Tiger and its enormous so thats all I've seen really so was an eye opener to find that there were bikes around I could fit on!  Sat on a Kawasaki ER6F and they demonstrated what it would be lke lowered, seat changed and whatnot and to be honest it felt a bit heavy then I tried a kawasaki ninja (which I love!) but it was a little 250 and I felt very comfortable.  Now we have the issue of whether to do the direct access or not as a 250 I wouldn't need to, I'd only need CBT and test and ride for 2 years which I'm happy with or go for the direct access course and ride anything.  OH reckons I'll want something bigger/better very soon and doesnt think I'd want the 250 for very long so hmmm, would love to hear your thoughts if you ride.  I really did like that ninja though....

Anyway I made this and wanted to share, have remebered to do my promarker list which is below.  Its a digi and is Emerald Faerie gardens and its called Ally & Beeble which is here.  I wanted to do a bold hot pink with green for this so chose some papers by Bearly Mine (always hand having digi papers as you never run out!)  I made a lollipop flower out of Starburst Stains using Bougainvillea fuschia and Fern Green and also used on the die cut Tim swirl which is here (and very useful!)
Hope you like and thanks for looking :)
