Oh the times they are a-changing!

My nephew has just returned home from a school trip to.... wait for it...... India and Dubai!!!, now when I was a girl, back in the dark ages LOL! the furthest I ever got on a school trip was Wales! although I remember my daughter going to the Isle of Man and France, but India and Dubai, how times have changed. He's come home all fired up and ready to travel the world LOL!

Recently, while I was travelling the world..... wide web..... hehe! (it's the most travelling I do these days), I came across this digi stamp from the Etsy shop Milk Coffee, she's called Soya and dandelion, I love dandelions!(my garden is full of them, so I don't have a lot of  choice) and fairies, so the image had everything going for it, if it just had a penguin too then I would have all my favourite things together in one image. (if anyone ever spots a fairy penguin holding a dandelion digi stamp, be sure and let me know LOL!) Anyway, back to the topic in hand,  every time I spot a digi stamp that contains a dandelion, it somehow manages to jump into my basket, which is exactly what happened with this one, although, instead of gathering dust on my hard drive, as most of my other images do, I decided that I would colour her up straight away and make her into a card.

Digital Stamp - Soya and dandelion - Etsy - MilkCoffee
Papers - A New Day digital scrapbooking kit - Crazy 4 Monograms

The card was inspired by sketch #98 at Papertake Weekly

This is such a pretty card Colette, your image is so sweet and you have coloured her beautifully.
I will keep an eye open for a fairy penguin holding a dandelion digi stamp and let you know if I see one!
