THE STAMPMAN BLOG HOP, CANDY AND AWARD EVENT

Good morning to all my blogging friends.
I hope you have had a Super Christmas with family and friends along with a few crafting goodies!!!

Here is my favourite project from this year



This was made for a challenge run my my friend Frankie and this is how it was made.

This is my entry for Frankie's TIO Challenge No 6 which is Dragonflies & Butterflies. I feel that Frankie chose this theme especially for me as I so love making anything which combines these elements, so thank you Frankie. I started by spraying my background with various colours of Cosmic Shimmer Mists before stamping using a new set from Inkadinkadoo called Morphic Bugs. The dragonfly stamps are from my set of Kay Carley - Aspect of Designs 51 - Japanese Minis which are available from The Stampman. For a finishing touch I added Butterfly & Dragonfly Brads from my stash and a lilac ric rac ribbon.

For posting this I have been given this special award from my good friend Jill
