Swiss Pixie

Hi all, I have had a little play today with a Swiss Pixie I picked up from C.C. Designs Facebook Group, I couldn't find her in the Shop but there were lots and lots that are just as cute as this one :)
And believe it or not I haven't made a card!! Shock Horror!! I have instead decorated a bag to use as a thank you gift filled with chocolate treats for a very special young lady.

I really enjoyed doing something a little different today :)

Raven & Tattered Angle - Karleigh Sue

Just a quick post to show you my card using Raven from Karleigh Sue Digi's, it's nice to colour up an image with a bit of attitude some times :) I have teenage daughters so I get to see lots of attitude at times. I kept this card simple because I think the image speaks for its self.

I also recently made a monochromatic card using another Karleigh Sue image named Tattered Fairy 

I love colouring mono chromatically!

Thanks for stopping by

Not me! Well that's not entirely true because although I haven't started the 'shopping' I have started the card making and here's the first one!

Isn't he ADORABLE! And he has friends that are just as adorable over at Make it Crafty you should go and check them out you won't be disappointed, and there is a new video from Zoe to watch. 

I hope you like my Charlie Elf, I was honored to be able to colour him for the Make it Crafty Store.
