Teen Fairy Pia and a confession

Good morning all.

Brrrrr - it's really cold now. Contemplating putting gloves on but that would be rather silly. It hard to type and colour with them on lol.

I have a little confession to make. I am rather ashamed to say that the penny hasn't dropped before now. For a while now I have not been happy with the way my colouring is looking - erm, did I hear a astonished gasp hehe. No honestly, I wasn't sure why and then I began thinking that maybe it was the cardstock that I used. I have been using a rather affordable paper but have been reading on other blogs different papers that you all use. Yup, I have been officially slapped around the face with a wet kipper and yesterday I received a few MAKE IT COLORFUL sheets of cardstock. DOH!! - it took me this long to wake up!? I am officially converted so no more "make-do" with second best.

Right, enough rambling about me so now onto my card for today .............



....................... I have used one of Mo's gorgeous images - yup, another image I have never used - shame on me. Isn't she stunning and I love her facial expression lol. It took me a long time as I just couldn't get the lay-out of the card right but I think it looks ok now.
