Happy New Year everyone!!!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and best wishes for 2011!!!

I have been busy cleaning out my craft room and putting up new bookshelves and getting rid of all the mismatched furniture and obviously buying loads of new paper storage box's. It looks so much better and I actually know where things are which is a first.

I also have a new copic stand which my DH bought me for Christmas (with a little help) and loads of new stamps, papers, cartridges, dies well as you can see the list goes on, but it's put me in the mood for lots of crafting, thought my mojo was in hiding for the last couple of months but oh no!! it's back!!

Whilst commenting over the weekend I came across a card on Tracey's blog "Crafteezee" which I thought was beautiful I had seen a similar card she did with a fabulous fairy house which I thought was far too complicated for me but hey I popped across to the site "make it crafty" and in secret bought of few!!! lol

So here is my take on Tracey's card and thank you for your inspiration.

First I coloured in the images and decided to add a fairy from charmed cards which is also a digi, used distress inks for the background and a lovely stamp for around the edges then just mounted it on brown card.

For the main card I have used a Prima paper "Raspberry Pastures" from the Indeed Collection which is perfect for the colours on the image and the theme.

My favourite Tiara stickles for the extra glitz!! Sentiment is from LOTV.

Beautiful lilac mesh ribbon and a few flowers, leafs, pins, hearts & butterflies.

Must say for my first time with these images I really do love it!!

Will be back on Thursday with The Crafty Purple Frog and some new releases, which are not to be missed!!!!
