Queens Cutie on a Pixie Porch

Hi everyone. What happened to the last 2 weeks? Where did they go? Did a little imp came along and steal the days when I wasn't looking? Well, there's some news to share today so let's make up for lost time.

We have some new design team members over at the Pixie Cottage! YAY! Welcome to all the new girls. If you take a look at the sidebar, there are links to all their blogs on there, so please pop over and leave them some love.

The challenge today is a sketch and/or 'Strawberries and Cream'. I've used the sketch and the colours I picked for my card are a muted strawberry and cream theme. The stamp I used today is PLEASANT PORCH by ARTish and it has been teamed up with a Kenny K image. Just goes to show that these Pixie Cottage background images suit lots of the character stamps and digis around nowadays.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Craft Room Challenge - Summer Birthdays
Creative Craft Challenge - Make your own backing papers
Creative Inspirations - Stitching (Real or faux)
The Shabby Tea Room - My favourite things (making my own backing papers)

Please take a look at the gorgeous creations from the design team by clicking HERE.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
