Hello Everyone....hope the weekend is going well for you all...mine is at a close and looking forward to a good nights sleep as I bought a new feather down pillow today...probably sneeze all night and be allergic to it.. but shouldn't be as my duvet is feathers..

So onto the reason while we are here....a new challenge at Lacy Sunshine is about to start and this week we are looking at "Fairy Dreams".. of course you can use any winged image you like...

And remember if you have used a Lacy Sunshine image for the challenge you qualify to use the free image in the next challenge as part of our loyalty scheme.

To get the free digi, just email Audrey to just write "Challenge Digi" on the subject line.

This week the DT's were given a gift from our lovely boss Heather and were each given a selection of beautiful flowers from our sponsor Petal Lu Flowers

For my card I'm sharing a new release especially for this challenge..

This is "Tansy Plumray" and will be in the Shop very soon..

I have coloured Tansy with Faber Castell pencils in a soft pink and violet and blended the colours together...her shoes and wings in a lemon yellow glitter to match my flowers....

Her eyes deserved to be violet too and made her into a blond..

The gorgeous flowers from Petal Lu ....pearls and butterfly from my stash.

A Marianne die was used as a frame on both sides and added it after cutting it in half..chose lemon yellow ribbon and the Birthday sentiment is a clear stamp from a magazine.

So there we go...a New Challenge  at Lacy Sunshine and would love to see you all there with your Fairies or any winged creature.

Thanks so much for stopping by....another new week starting tomorrow and half way through September or nearly...time is flying along.

OH!! and I looked out my window today and to my total delight my blossom tree has tiny pink blossoms all over one the other side will catch up...very pretty.

Challenges I would like to enter...
