Two Princesses a swing and a Pony !

Well your proberly all sick of seeing fairytale Tilda ... so i thought id show you something alittle different that id done with it .... Its a topper i made for ebay and i mixed an old Magnolia pony stamp  ive had for a few years now .... I was thinking of selling an old princess clear stamp set i never used ,  and as i put it in my "to sell box"  I realised that it had some sentiments that fitted the castle scene ..... just goes to show i really should'nt  get rid of ANY stamps... EVER , you just never know when you need them .... lol 

I have used leaf punches and a die for all the leaves, 

Actually looking at it , it would quite suit being put onto a canvas for a picture .
Tilda has fine glitter dusted on the biege areas of thier dresses - it looks quite golden in real .
I masked the crown onto the  tilda's head (the one on the swing) - the crown was one of the stamps in the set i was going get rid of !

It is stitched around the edge , but you cant see it in the photo
Id like to enter this into these challenges .
Well hope you had a good weekend ...... im feeling alittle better although im still in the wars as now ive sprained my ankle ! Prehaps i should have just stayed in bed ! lol

A Happy Little Chappie !

I know its been a while since i blogged - ive had the most dreadful earache and a bad week feeling quite run down - but im  feeling alot better now thank goodness ! This Happy Little Gnome was just want i needed to cheer me up ! look at his cute grin !
He is from the new collection by MelJen designs for Whimsy - and you can get him instantly as he is a digital .
I used some scrap paper i had lying around which was just perfect for him , and i sewed around the edge ,the star was cut from a sizzix original die from mountboard and the star trim and button was from an old scrap- a -gogo kit i had. 
Im one of these that hoards kits lol , and use them with gritted teeth lol , but ive had the kit for a while now 
and im happy to use it and stop just looking at it ! Hehee ... you know what i mean, dont you ?
Well the sun is beaming down again today so might venture out into the garden - might find another gnome prehaps at the bottom of it !
