The world of fairies and stamping

Today around 12 Lavinia stamps arrived in my mail.
I am chuffed so being extremely hot I am having a
'let's get dirty  play day'. I have a mixed media
drying so that's for later.

Here are my creations.
On the one below I also use rain drop stamp from
I didn't realize how big the drops were...
TH distressed inks were used on both journals.
Main stamps are Lavinia stamps and I am loving them.

Butterfly challenge..All kinds of Fairies, elves, gnomes, butterflies 
are on the frame corners.

For this next card I stencilled in the flowery background and cloud
using TH Distressed inks.  The other goodies are from Lavinia Stamps.

Fashionable Stamping.....anything goes with a stamp 
Lavinia Stamps....Magical

I am just so chuffed, a beautiful friend Wendy, has sent me the most
gorgeous gift any one could receive...all hand made and she is so clever.
He's a ya Wendy...and thank you.
If you pop over to Wendy's blog you will
get an idea of the gorgeous things she makes

Missed this one Annie, bloggers latest game seems to be hiding new posts from me on my dashboard, this is the third I've come across commenting at FSC.

As you know I adore anything Lavinina so ticks all the right boxes for me, thanks so much for sharing our lovely creation with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

I also have a little package from Wendy and decided to keep it for Christmas, but had an idea it might be something rather like this.
