Butterfly Wishes in Pink & Red

Hiya peeps!

Brrr how cold is it outside?!!! It's literally gone from +12°c here to -10°c in a matter of days, but the sun has been shining bright so that's ok! I love the bright, crisp wintery days, but it is flippin' freezing!

Well, we have a new challenge today at Cupcake Craft Challenges for you, and this week it's our lovely Sari Sunshine that's chosen the theme 'Pink & Red'. Now, I did enjoy this challenge, mainly as I had a beautiful image from Pollycraft to work with! I don't have many fairy stamps, but this little beauty really caught my eye... she's a Lilybean fairy and you can find her HERE. Isn't she pretty? I've coloured her using a mixture of  Promarkers and Flexmarkers... I do like the brush tips on the Flexmarkers. Here's a little close up of her and her little butterfly friend...
Our sponsors this week at Cupcake are Pollycraft (offering 5 digis to one lucky winner) and Simon Says Stamp (offering a $20 Gift Certificate to one lucky winner). Please pop by the blog to check out all the details and to see all the other lovely creations my fellow DT buddies have made! Thanks so much for dropping by today.

Je viens te souhaiter un bon week-end ma Shelly, en espérant que ta motivation va vite revenir ! Ici il fait très froid, la neige qui est tombée dimanche dernier est encore là alors que pas un seul flocon n'est tombé depuis ce jour !
J'espère que Réglisse va bien. ici Chiffonnette sort un peu malgré la neige. Ce qu'elle déteste, c'est la pluie et le vent hihi (comme moi !!)
Gros bisous mon amie !
