All dressed up

Good morning to you all.  

a few weeks ago I won the Inky Chicks challenge Bingo and the prize was 2 stamps from the lovely 
All Dressed Up  shop.  it was a struggle to choose just 2 they were all so cute.
Anyway this is one of the stamps that I picked, called fairy magic. 
I have coloured her with some copics and added a little glamour dust to her wings, I cut out some more butterflies from another print out of the image.
The papers are from Nit Wits called Lifes little lemons, the border and flowers are from a Die namic blueprint die.

I have followed the sketch for the current challenge over at All dressed up.

This is my first post in a week, sorry I have been away but I have had a problem with my computer and had to have it fixed so could not upload any images onto the internet.  i did not waste the time though and made a few cards ready to post.
This is a card made using an older image from LOV, I have coloured it in promarkers and added some glamour dust on the little bubbles.
The embossing folder is a 6 x 6 from crafters companion.

This months challenge at LOV is name that tune and this reminds me of the song Celebration by Kool & The Gang.  Not sure what these two are celebration could be Birthday, anniversary or an event.

I love promarkers - Birthday
