A forest friend

Afternoon all!  Been really busy this week so just catching a few minutes whilst I have superman and the tooth fairy running round the garden! 
Have this one to show you today and its a new gorgeous digi by Sara Burrier called Forest Fairy from Crafts & Me and she's gorgeous!  I've got some different effects to show you on this next week so keep an eye out :)

I coloured with promarkers and hand drew the background also with promarkers then stamped a couple of pine trees on the edges.  Papers are from Bearly Mine (simply dots and summer stripes)

Well I'm off to watch superman 4 with the kids, my lad is obsessed lol!
