Call me a princess!

Hello all! Hope you're all well.

I've just realised today that I STILL haven't shown you my new craft room!!! Doh!!! I guess the thing is, it's not quite finished, I still want to add some finishing touches so I wanted to wait til it's finished properly. I promise that it won't be too long before I show you- either I'm going to get these bits finished or I'll make the decision to show you it anyway!!! Can't wait to show you my new little stamping annexe!!

Onto today's card- a card for my friend's little girl's birthday. She's a real girly girl so I thought she'd like this card and especially the sentiment!

The stamp and sentiment are both Elzybells. I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dress. I added gold Stickles to her crown and Glossy Accents to her shoes to give them some shine! I have used my new nesties labels 18 (see below) to cut her out and added some sponged pale pink ink. Also used other new nesties labels 9 for mounting.

I love these papers- so cute and bubblegum-y! They are by Pink Paislee and October Afternoon.

I'd like to enter this into:
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge-bright colours
ABC Challenge- anything goes
Fab n Funky-die cuts/punches
Divas by Design- button up
Papertake Weekly- anything goes
Pollycraft- sketch
Crafts 4 Eternity-anything goes

Hmmm, here we go with my other "little" craft purchases!!!! To be fair, I did a big Stamping Bella order and have kept under half of it- the rest will be for my birthday and Christmas!! I have bought 4 of the new Uptown Girl stamps (2 shown here). I am SO excited about this new release, I can't wait to use them and show you how fabby they are!! Also here is 2 Pies Lulu, Swinging Mavis and Housework Fairy by Mo Manning. I also treated myself to some more Die-namics- essential purchases as far as I'm concerned!!

Errrr, and some more nesties. To be fair (do you see how I'm trying to justify??!) I don't have a great number of different styles of nesties- just the basic ones. I'd really like to try mixing and matching between the sets, something I've not been able to do before so watch this space for some nestie mixing!!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Elzybells); Copics; Lyra pencils; Papers (Pink Paislee & October Afternoon); Nesties; Stickles; Glossy Accents; Nailheads; Buttons
