Sunglasses warning - Here's Vicky!

Evening all!  I have to give you a sunglasses warning for this one as its so LOUD and bright!!  This is one of the new range of digi stamps designed by the very talented designer and cardmaker Teresa over at My Crafty Heart and this one is Fairy Vicky named after my old mucker Vicky on the DT.  The description says "Fairy Vicky likes to sing and dance and entertain the other fairies across the land."  She certainly does!So as an Ode to Vicky who brightens up everyones day I had to do this loud, like her haha!


The papers are also digi by Bearly Mine, I have a folder of papers I printed off when I was on the DT and saw these and thought YES!  Totally in the mood for orange today and I love the boldness of the designs too.  I know some people worry about the cost of printing but I can assure you its not that bad.  I got a £15 cartridge from Tesco which lasted me 12 months and I have printed stacks and stacks of the papers off so considering how much you pay for a printed paper stack and these can be adjusted in size and you wont get the eeek moment when you need 3 pieces the same size to do inside and out as you just print another off :)

I've coloured with promarkers and coloursoft pencils adding distress ink in yellow and orange around the edge (sorry mustard seed and spiced marmalade tsk!)  The sentiment I got off ebay yonks ago, flowers are Wild orchid and swirly thing is sizzix.



Oooh sparkly wings!

Hope this has brightened your day as much as it did mine!

I'd like to enter this into...
