There's mushrooms and a tree branch .... and MORE fairies... you might remember CharlotteRose and LilyRose were digis at Mad for Markers... well they have jumped off their little mushroom seats and turned into RUBBER... ***AND BREAKING NEWS *** they arrived TODAY!!! Perfect timing!!!! So they are available to purchase today and if you order this weekend I might even get to the post office on Monday... if not it will be NEXT year )

Whilst waiting..... a Freebie

I thought whilst waiting for 6pm Friday and the marvelous fun we are going to have for the tea party that I would give you all something to colour .. something that has come from the land of story and is quite popular at the moment again with the lastest Twilight movie - Breaking Dawn II out. I have not yet seen it but I did read the books some time ago... enough blabbering on .. Here is a card the amazing Tanya whipped up with the image....

and my Instagram of the coloured art/ postcard I did!

If you would like this image to colour send an email to me requesting one :) We would love to see what you create with this image!!! :D
