Good Morning Everybody!!
Happy Friday woohoo!!! Roll on weekend. It's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week our theme is "Feeling Fruity". We are sponsored by SU so don't miss out on the opportunity to be a winner! I decided to use this sweet Tilda who is holding an apple and one of my dps has fruit on it too. Be sure to hop on over to see the wonderful inspiration the rest of our fab dt have created for you. I have used my Promarkers to colour her in, stickles on the trims of her dress and glossy accents on the apple. Everything is really shiny and sparkly irl but sadly we have really poor light today, mostly overcast, so it's not showing up too well. The roses, as usual. are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves and butterfly are brand new dies from Little Claire Designs. They are brilliant and so easy to work with. Sure you'll be seeing these quite often. I just had to show you a close up of this butterfly, isn't it just gorgeous? The nice thing is that it cuts out three seperate pieces so you could use different papers. It's just so versatile. You can purchase it here. They have a vast array of dies at very reasonable prices and the postage is only £1.

I'll be entering this card into the Create 4 Fun challenge as I have followed their sketch, thanks ladies! Thanks for taking the time to view my creation. Hope I've inspired you enough to want to come along and join us! I'll be back tomorrow with my card for The Secret Crafter. Lotsa luv xxxx
