A little bit sketchy


Hi all,

I hope you are having a good day. Both girls went to kindy today. Usually Martha stays at home with me on a Tuesday, but she is finding it a bit hard to settle into kindy so as there was a space this week on Tuesday we decided to send her as she might get to know the people better. It worked a bit as she had a good day and had lots of smiles for Daisy when they played outside. As for me, it wasn't a rest as I went to my exercise class (boxing again - I love it!), did loads of housework, did some tutoring and managed to make some DT cards. I also squeezed in a little non-DT make and here it is.

Over at the fab Stamp Fairy blog, they have a great sketch this week. I decided to go with Toby Spring fairy - isn't he adorable? I paper pieced the wings and dress. The DP is from a RAK so I don't know who made it, but I love it. Go and check out the challenge and the images. They are all so cute.
