Yippee - I can join in again!

Hi all,
I hope you are having a good weekend. My parents came up on Thursday for a couple of weeks. It's nice to see them. Martha hadn't met them before, but she's really taken to them and Daisy loves having someone else to boss around!

I am so pleased that I am able to join in the Stamp Fairy challenges again as I love the images and the challenges are such fun. I don't have much stash, but enough! This week, there is a fab sketch by Gerda and I used her lovely image called Baby Dotty and her teddy, as a friend of ours had a baby girl last week and I wanted to make her a card. The papers are by Imaginisce and the embellishments are from my stash.

Love your card Nikki, those papers are gorgeous and baby dotty is coloured beautifully and really subtle. I really need to learn a lighter touch on my colouring like this. I feel I go a bit heavy and for a baby card like this the pastels are so perfect. The shading on the teddy is perfect. Annette xx (Stamp Fairy DT)
