Good morning everyone, it looks like it's going to be a lovely day here in Sidmouth today.  I am off to deliver my first lot of comissiond notepad holders, 32 of them I did altogether, so she has a bit of choice as she only wants 24:o)  Has taken me forever to finish as my 2 boys were not particularly well behaved for the last 2 weeks, but they are all done now so I hope she likes them!!!

Unfortunately that means I haven't had much time to make other things, so I will be showing you the notepads intermitently over the next month to try and fill in any gaps I might have as I am also going away for just over a month and will not be able to take most of my crafting stash :o(  Boo hoo!

So here is another notepad for today's post

Side view

Backing papers were freebies from a magazine, the notepad and pen are from the Range.

The image is a Pergamano fairy stamp that has been stamped onto a Nellie Snellen Multiframe, which has been inked I have then added mini gems into the scallops.

I have coloured her with pro markers and added glitter to the wings.

The flower is a Marianne creatable die cut, as are the leaves, and I have added gems in the centre.

I hope you like it.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges 2Dp's 2 embellies(gems and glitter)

Thanks for stopping by :o)
