Hello my friend...

...wishing you an amazing day full of wonderful moments!

Today it's my - Sandra's - turn again, to show you a new cool creation with the Paper Nest Dolls Fairy stamps.

To create the magical looking background I played with Alcohol Inks and Isopropanol.

In the foreground I put 2 die cut grass borders from Sizzix and added the already colored mushrooms from the gnome set, a butterfly and some flowers.

Believe in Your Dreams (except the COVID-19 ones)

Hi Crafty Friends,
Have you been spending your days in your robe and slippers for the past few months of quarantine? I think we all have had crazy dreams these last few months, so maybe don't believe in those ones but the pre-COVID dreams. This darling lady is called "Bedtime Emma" from Paper Nest Dolls.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What crazy COVID dream have you had?
A: Me? I had one about my prom being cancelled even though I went to my prom in 2000.

Bedtime Emma By Cat

Hey everyone! 

It's Cat here!

Today I have a gorgeous image from Paper Nest Dolls called 'Bedtime Emma'. Such a gorgeous image and you can purchase her here as a digi and here as a rubber stamp.

I have used the digital image and coloured it with Promarkers and white gel pen for some accents. The papers are taken from several packs - One of them being Papermania Capsule Collection Eau de Nil.

I added the half lace semi-circle die cut and the Relax sentiment die along with the Birthday Sentiment and finally added some Gems to complete the card. 

I hope you like it! 

Crafty Hugs!
Stay Safe!
