Bubble Bath

Cookie and I would like to thank all of you who have sent lovely get-well wishes
to our dear little Cookie, after all his woes. He is recovering
well, and yesterday, our vet was very pleased with his progress.

Today is a very special occassion. Lili's Little Fairies is now officially 
Crafty Little Fairies!!! We have a beautiful new, fresh and colourful look, 
thanks to lots of 'candle-burning-long-into-the-night' hours by Squirrel and Angie.
We have opened up our challenge to any stamps, not just LOTV. Digis are
okay too, so there is no excuse for not entering our first (and future)
challenges. We would love to see what you create. 

Previously, the DT was divided into 'A' Team and 'B' Team, but NOW 
we are Blue Fairies and Pink Fairies. I am 'tickled' that I am a Pink Fairy,
'cos pink is my favourite colour. Each team usually alternates each week,  
but to celebrate our new beginnings, Fairies from both teams have created
cards for you, so pop over to Crafty Little Fairies, and see all the scrummy
creations by my fairy teamies.

Our first challenge at Crafty Little Fairies is one I am sure you will all love...
I know all of us on the DT do.


We have 2 lovely, generous sponsors

but you have to work a little bit harder for this one - the winner will be selected 
randomly from all the blogs who display our new logo...

Old habits are hard to break, so although I could have used any image, I chose to
use this this sweet LOTV stamp 'Bubble Bath'.

As usual, I coloured the image with Promarkers. I also added Stickles Crystal 
to the bubbles. I think perhaps there may be a little bit of 'toesies' going on
in the tub......what do you think?

A closer look at the lovely flowers. I put Stickles all over them, but the photo
hardly shows it. The pins are just pearl-head sewing pins, with some recycled
'pearls' from old necklaces of mine.

Inside my card matches the front. I really must use that lovely
Spellbinder die more is so pretty, as are the others
in that set.

Early tomorrow morning I will set out to travel to the beautiful Watagan Mountains for a stamp camp. I have lost count of the years I have been going to this one...I think it is 13 years. It is held twice each year, and sometimes I go to one, but if the finances can withstand the shock, I attend both. 

It is lovely to catch up with old friends where we laugh, chatter, sleep way too little, and eat way too much. Oh...and sometimes we get some crafting done! During last year's camp, I demonstrated how to create my parchment roses, and this year I have been asked to do so again.

If I don't put my 'skates' on soon, I will not be packed in time, so I will bid you "good evening", and wish you "happy crafting". 

For a chance to win a lovely prize, why not visit us at Crafty Little Fairiesand enter our very first challenge, 'Cute 'n' Cuddly Critters'.
