What a cutie!

Hi lovely friends hope you had a fun weekend,

I know I did, my lovely sister Jac, had been to stay for a few days. Postie brought me some scrummy stash on Friday,  so we got to play with some of the brand new stamps from Lily of the Valley and created this gorgeous little gift basket, thanks Jac for cutting the papers for me and decorating the inside, mwha X

If you would like to make one too, the template is by the wonderfully talented Randi Thorson she has some beautiful creations not to be missed.

This little cutie is 'Birthday Fairy' so pretty and a dream to colour.

The copics used: Skin E000 E00 R20 Hair E50 E53  Clothes B00 BG10 G20 G21 Y000
Wings B00 B32 BG10
Bear R00 R20 + 0  Present Y000 E50 B00

I've  had the double sided DP for such a long time it's called Butterfly Bouquet and I used both sides.
Pearls and brads from The Hobbyhouse and ribbon from Hobbycraft
The scrummy flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts 

I used star dust stickles around the edges of the paper
and on the little fairy.

The basket opens on both sides.

Randi made hers with two acetate windows

I cut a small oval nestie to make the tag and the sentiment is from Woodware, 'Tiny Phrases' stamp set.

 Wouldn't it make a gorgeous easter basket!!

Challenges to have fun with:
Lily of the Valley ~ things with wings must be LOTV image
The creative cottage ~ something new... new stamps and basket
Stamp Something ~ anything goes
Pile it on ~ anything goes
 Aud sentiments ~ sentiment can only be two words

Thanks for stopping by,

Love Cherie   //*.*\\
