Chrissy the Christmas Spirit Fairy...

I found some gorgeous images on Etsy and have been itching to colour them for ages.. so finally managed to find some time to colour this beautiful image... she's called 'Chrissy the Christmas Spirit Fairy' and is by Michelle Perkett... just click on the links to see more of her gorgeous images...


I've coloured her with Copics, Promarkers, Flexmarker and Spectrums. Star Dust Stickle on her wings... Viva Decor Pen in Silver for snow...


The scrummy paper is 'Nordic Holiday' by Basic Grey... and the sparkly border is Memory Box 'Frosty' Border.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Scrap Creations - 'Christmas in July' ends 23rd July 2012
Delightful Challenges - 'Christmas in July' ends 25th July 2012
Digi Doodle - Challenge 117  - 'Anything Goes' ends 25th July 2012

Hope you are all doing ok and enjoying the sunshine! I have another idea for a Christmas Card so might start that later this evening.... I'm going through a Christmassy phase... LOL ... I think it must be all the 'Christmas in July' Challenges... 
Love and Hugs
