I Made It!

The Faery Ink Design Team that is. Last Sunday I was on the edge of my seat all day waiting to hear from Amanda to see if I had been picked to be one of the Guest Designers for Faery Ink, which I had entered earlier in November. By the time I went to bed at 11pm I still hadn't heard from her, so I thought that I hadn't got in! I was very disappointed to say the least.

However that all changed on Monday morning when I received an even better message asking if I would join the DT full time instead! I did give a bit of a squeal I will admit! I have loved Faery Ink images for ages now and this was just what I wanted!

The monthly challenge in the Faery Ink Facebook group this month is to use red, green and gold, traditional Christmas colours, but your project does not have to be a Christmas one!

I chose to use the gorgeous Bella Candy Fae which was the free one day Fae giveaway last month as well and made another of my bauble decorations. I need to make 10 of these altogether and so far have only made 3! Better get a move on!

And this is the back of it...

This decoration is also for
{Pin}spirational Challenge #154 to use this picture (I went with the idea of a fairy!)
