Fairy Magic

It is new challenge time at All Dressed Up and our theme for this one is Love.  Very timely with Valentine's Day just around the corner.  The challenge goes until February 15 and the guidelines are you must use an All Dressed Up image and follow the theme but other than that, the sky is the limit.  You can purchase images at the Etsy Shop or head on over to the All Dressed Up Blog where there are several cute freebies available.  While you are there, take a look around and see what the rest of the design team has created and enter the challenge for a chance to win two of the ADU images.
Don't forget to stop by and check out our Facebook Group and our Pinterest Brag Board.
This little doll is called Fairy Magic and the image includes some butterflies but I removed them so it could be an 'any occasion' card.  Not that butterflies aren't any occasion but I thought I'd like to try it without them.   I have discovered some of the lushest paper ever and I love it... must get more!  I won a store gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie shop and one of my purchases was a 6x6 pad of this Maja paper.  There's lots of other fabulous little bits in the shop so check it out.  Quick delivery and some of the best customer service ever!

The least you could have done is make a Super Bowl card --- what a good neighbor you are. I am pumped - go Dallas!!!!!!
Well you are so talented and I love the way your colored her hair and I love your design work and flowers. What - no Frantage - I could have sworn I saw Frantage on here. You know I love your style Marilyn and you are way too kind when you comment on my cards.

Sarah said...

Hi Marilyn, Thanks for the very kind comment and it's fine for you to 'pin' it.

I don't know if it will help or not (I've not used Pinterest for very long and am not good at it) but I've created an All Dressed up board and plan to put my cards there.

I don't know how you would find me on Pinterest tho - you can see I'm terrible at this FaceBook / Pinterest / Twitter lark!!!

Anyway, sorry for burbling on!
