By the magic of Mr Blogger

Now we know I'm not officially here, we are hopefully on our way from Gibraltar to Cannes to see how the other half live ........ Gib's not the most exciting of places, but it does have cheap perfumes, alcohol and other duty free goodies plus a M&S so can't be all bad and of course not forgetting those 'b' monkeys ......... but I for one will be giving them a miss as usual........just not an animal I can warm to.

I determined to try and make up some cards to schedule posting so as to keep my blog active whilst way so by the magic of Mr Blogger I am going to share some fantasy cards with you for a couples of days. The stamps are new stash from Lavinia stamps, all very me and which I found courtesy of Jules do check our her blog, her style is fab.
I created the background for this one using brayering, stamped the fairy very simple with vermafine black end embossed with detail clear. The little toadstools are also a Lavinia stamp and the leaves at the top and birds are Art Impressions stamped with Brilliance. The large leaves were cut with my new punch available from Sir Stampalot, scalloped border with Martha Stewart doily lace punch and flowers, gems and liquid pearls added to finish.

  12. Hi Brenda. I have to admit I have a soft spot for Gib as we went there for our Honeymoon, the choice was nothing to do with me but we had a great time for 3 days. There is quite a bit to see when you get under the surface. I agree about the monkeys though.
    Love Love Love this card. I adore Lavinia stamps and you have used them beautifully. That leaf punch is a must too.
