Teddies or Fairies? AYLI Inspiration

Hello everyone. I have a card to inspire you today...I hope


Its time for another challenge at As You Like It and it's a real conundrum!!

Fairies or Teddies?

Now I've never been a fairy kind of girl, although they used to appear from time to time to clean the boys' bedrooms when they were younger!! For me it has to be teddies and in particular the lovely James from Lili of the valley. He is just adorable isn't he?!! This particular image is a digital "James Christmas Stocking"stamp that I coloured with my Promarkers.


I also used the very last bits of  my Winter Wishes taster pack and snazzed him up with some red ribbon to compliment his hat and stocking. 

I can't tell you how good it's been to actually snatch a bit of crafting time to myself. I treated myself to a Gemini die cutting machine and actually took it out of the box and used it for the first time to cut the little tag. Anyway thank you so much for your visit, I really do hope to return the compliment some time soon xx

  10. Totally adorable card Sarah! Fabulous colouring. Love the little tag with it's ribbon and button. I'm with you, teddies are my first love although I do like fairies too.
    My eBosser has started making a groaning noise sometimes (not unlike my husband when I'm crafting :D). I really hope it's not on it's last legs. Tell me if you'd recommend the Gemini when you've had plenty of time to play with it please :). Debra x

  23. Hi Sarah, James is so cute and your colouring is spot on as always, I have so far resisted buying any of the LOTV digi images but I'm sure it will soon break as they are far too cute not to own... have a great week... Megan
