A bit of something for Pollycraft..........

Hi everyone how are you all? I am so SO sorry for not getting around to everyone last night, I am running rather behind. No excuses tho..........I was watching the footie it was Newcastle UTD v Stoke City & we won 3-1......howay the lads lol. I'm a HUGE toon(newcastle) fan & well I have a sore throat today from all the shouting but I'm originally from Stoke-On-Trent, my great uncle Neil Franklin used to play for Stoke City so I do have a love for them but I have to say I'm soooooooooo pleased Newcastle won woopaaaaa!!
Right I will get straight on now. This is another image coloured about 2 months ago I think & I went for sepia tones on Kraft card...........

This is 'Clover Dancing With Dragonflies' from the Lilybean Fairy range at Pollycraft admittedly I've had these images since last year & only finally now coloured this 1 in.......I know shame on me.

The lace is from a shop on Ebay & the wicker heart is from my stash.

Pin I made myself
Flowers are a mixture from Crafty Emma's & WOC Papers used are Prima, I know Prima again lol, these ones are my fave 'Printery'. Kraft card used for matting & all edges inked with Vintage Photo.

She is of course coloured with Prisma pencils & the white dots on the mushroom & the 2 circle flowers I used Enamel Accents which is fabulous on kraft card.

Get me I even did real stitching with my sewing machine.........once I blew off the dust & nearly choked on it!

Well I'm off to have a quick catch up before I clean my bathrooms........oh the joy!!!

Tatty bye my lovelies thank you as always for stopping by it really does mean so much mmwah.
