Pollycraft Challenge # 101 - The Great Outdoors

Morning All!!

Yes it's the nerve racking day for me today.....INTERVIEW!!  But the less said about that the better lol!

Today is also the day that we host another fabby challenge over at Pollycraft, and this week it's The Great Outdoors - outdoor activities, being outdoors or things you see whilst outdoors!  I've used Swings and Slides Enchant and Explore 'Fairy' on her toadstool, here's my card...

A close up of 'Fairy'

Inside of card...

And a side view...

This week we're sponsored by...

...Crafty Emma's Store who have donated a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their store, what a fantastic prize  :o))  Emma has all the latest crafty goodies you could want for so it'll be the easiest £10.00 you've ever spent lol!  What are you waiting for?!

I really enjoyed making this card, 'Fairy' was such a dream to colour!  Quite into ribbon ruffling at the moment too!

Ok, I'd better shoot but before I do it's time to announce the winner of the digi I used last week, Little Stars Moon Lullaby.  And the winner is.....

Wahoo!!  Congratulations hon, please can you contact me and I'll email the image over  :o)

Right better shoot, have a great day all and I'll let you know how I get on!!  Soooooo nervous!!
