Hello Everyone...

When I went to a cotton the snow...riding on a donkey..who limped..we were very lucky to have a teacher who taught us the time by using a REAL clock with hands and how to read a calendar...true..I can sometimes read a calendar...but not yesterday...I thought it was Thursday and did my two DT post's a day sorry Crafty Little Fairies and my debut with Digital Delights  ...what a nitwit.

I blame the lack of chocolate in the house and no gingernuts stressful when you cannot find munchies...but fixed that problem tonight... and as the chocolate in seeping into my system... I'm on top of things.

No DT cards to share tonight... but have a card for fun and some challenges...

I found this image on the internet a long time ago and been looking forward to colouring it..

Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and a few copics and again lashings of glitter on those wings...

The papers are Pink Paislee....lots of glitter on the seabed and shells...

Cheery Lyn Leaf flourish and Marriane creatables leaves for coral...sprinklings of pearls for bubbles..and a grass die...I think it is MB.[bought it already cut]

And sunshine today for the photograph so we have sparkle.

Would like to enter these challenges....

Crafty Creations challenge  [Things with wings]

Make My Monday   [Fairies and or Mystical Creatures]

Just inspirational challenge   [Anything goes][OOP'S missed it]

Fan-tastic Tuesday   [Anything goes]

And that's it...except inlinkz hates me and wont load up so will try later.

Thanks ever so much for your lovely comments on my early posts will never live that down..and thanks for stopping by tonight...

See you tomorrow...I think...or could be the next day..

Oh dear! I did wonder about your DT cards being a day early but thought it may be due to the international time difference! Glad you have restock your chocolate supplies now!
