i luuuuuurve the "flippin" range from LA PASHE  i have used them many many times! and go back to them time and time again especially for Mens Cards i think they are grrrreat.
This one here is one of my favourites! and have made it quite a few times now. It is aptly called... "Cheers!!!"
I have printed this one from the first cd La Pashe launched called "The Big One" it is Amazing! and left me and i'm sure all other avid La Pashe fans on the edge of our seats waiting for more cd's to come winging there way to us!, and of course they didnt fail when the other fabulous cd roms followed! check them out right now just HERE! but now i'm afraid this first cd is sold out!! so if your one of the lucky ones ...Moi! good for you! but if not don't dispair, as they are available right now as a downlaod so pop along ...RIGHT HERE!  and fill ya boots my crafting lovelies!

For this card i have simply pulled the image into my graphic programme, enlarged, cropped and faded it to create my own backing paper...( You have noticed i do this ALOT! i love it!) then i've matted...decoupaged...and glossy accented (if that is not a now is ;) )  hope you like it, and as always thank you thank you THANK YOU! for taking the time to stop by my little crafting world to take a peek, ooooh. and while you are around... please take a minute to stop by the other La Pashe DT members pages, they are full of wonderful inspiration for you all, :) Nix xx

Beautiful Fairies

Good evening everyone!! Tonight I am going to share with you a couple of fairy themed cards I have made.
This first one I made using Linda Ravenscroft "A Touch Of Magic" Cd rom, one of my very favourites ! hope you like it,
A beautiful gothic style fairy I think you will agree :)
This next card was also made using the same CD rom... and one of my all time favourite images...

and finally a beautiful Rose Flower Fairy made using the Crafters Companion "Flower Fairies" CD rom ...I have them all and I am spoilt for choice when trying to choose which fairy to make
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and would love to hear from you so please stop and drop me a line :) hugs Nix xxx
