Forgotten Fairy

Hello to everyone and a special hello to my new followers. It's a fab feeling when I log in and see someone else has joined in. I have found some wonderful people since I started my blog, with huge amounts of talent that I have taken inspiration from and I really look forward to visiting you all.


   I've had a lovely day today. I went to the LOTV shop which is way too close now, they have had a couple of days of demos and colouring classes with the lovely Bev Rochester.. Needless to say I puchased a wee something or five!  I had a coffee and a wonderful scone with jam and clotted cream,  home baked, Yummy.


   I've been checking through my many boxes of stamps when I came across some pergamano fairies that I have never used (shame on me) I had forgotton how sweet they were so I decided to make a card, at last, using one of them. I like that they are so delicate when stamped with such fine detail.
Been practising my colouring strokes a bit more too.
