Holly Fairy

Hi everyone, I'm so sorry I haven't been about for a few days, I feel I've been taking one step forward and two steps back all this week!

Today's card is for four challenges, the first is Digital Tuesday's theme of 'Christmas Sparkle', the second is the Simon Says challenge of 'So Charming', the theme at Quixotic Challenges theme is 'Be Charming' and finally, this week's DP2 challenge is 'Someone Special'
I just had to use my beautiful 'Holly Fairy' from Mo Manning again, I can't resist her. I've added a little star charm to the pretty ribbon and lots of Stickles sparkles to Holly's dress and wings.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Holly Fairy'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Dovecraft 'Winter Wonderland'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Valentine Hearts'
* Everything else from my stash.

I'm forcing myself to avoid paying a visit to Mo's shop Digital Pencil at the moment. The problem is, I'm in love with all of the images so I need to win the lottery before I can go on a shopping spree.
I'll just have to wait until I feel brave enough to do a list and then get one or two at a time, although how I'll manage to choose I really don't know.
Ah well, as we all know these are just some of the trials and tribulations of a craftaholic. Problem is, I think I enjoy buying craft stuff even more than using it lol!

Oh me too - although I'm not huge on digi purchases - because I can't sit them on the floor in the bag for a week before I can put them away!!

'I think I enjoy buying craft stuff even more than using it lol!'

now where have I heard that before? lol!

this is beautiful Chrissie and has reminded me that I bought this fairy a while back - must get into action and actually use this stuff I buy.

I'm with you on the 'owning it is more fun than using it' theme. Know exactly how you feel - I've got for too much stuff but can't resist the urge to get more. This card is gorgeous and you are truly justified in buying this image.
