Hello 2012!

First of all may I wish you all a very

And to celebrate I thought I'd give my blog a facelift - what do you think?

Now I don't know about you but my Christmas Fairy got rather fed up of being perched atop the tree (pine needles and tulle skirts are a nightmare combination) so she hopped off to enjoy last nights festivities!!
This image is pre-party - you honestly don't want to see the state she's in now......

Yesterday I gave myself a little post Christmas treat and bought some of Mo Mannings newest images, this is one of the Fairy Princess ones.

As you can see I printed her out on kraft card as I was dying to try out these little beauties....

Oh my, these colour like a dream, are in the same colour range as my water-soluble Supracolor Soft but are water-resistant - the possibilities when combining the two...........

Have no fear, these little wooden sticks of wonder won't replace my Copics, in fact Santa included the Copic Fluorescents in my stocking (my collection is officially complete) along with a post-it note saying if I'm a very good girl he'll send me the new colours in February!

Well, I think all that's left is for me to do is to enter this cutey in to a few challenges out there in bloggyland.......

Adorable card! Love the image....a nice smiley face with a touch of attitude in the body language. Still have to try colouring on Kraft, but you've done a fabulous job.
