My first card in ages.....

As you may have noticed, I haven't been blogging too much lately......the truth of the matter is that I haven't made any new cards in a while. I has taken me a while to fight my way into my craft cupboard as is is in the spare room, along with many of the contents of our lounge and dining room, due to the ongoing decorating saga!!

However, I am pleased to say that I have finally cleared a path to some of my stuff, and, since I was lucky enough to have bit of 'alone' time today, I was determined to get some crafting in!

So - one Polka Doodles Sugar Plum Fairies CD and a pile of Promarkers later and here is one of the results......

There are some really gorgeous background scenes on the CD, in some lovely vibrany colours, so I picked out one that I liked (and believe me it was a struggle to narrow it down!!) and printed a backing paper which I thought, picked out the roof of the toadstool cottage.

Although I printed the backgound in colour (itwould have taken me a month of Sundays to colour it myself!), I chose to print the fairy in blck and white and coloured her with my Promarkers......boy have I missed them!!

The scene has been mounted on a simple A5 easel and card at long last!!

I am a bit behind on my challenges so I thought I would enter this one in to this week's Allsorts challenge, which you can find right  here.

Thanks very much for looking, and I hope to be back again soon as I am going to do my best to find a bit of card making time some time this week!
