When the fairy met the Orchid!

Hi Guys,

Whoa, whats this i see? 2 posts in the same day?? Surely this is a blip, an error or have i gone mad? neither, i just saw a challenge that i had to get involved with, that's starting to sound familiar with me lately.  I started out  with joining no challenges....... to joining 3 in the same week!!! I am actually enjoying doing my tuts on You Tube and now getting involved with blog challenges, so don't be surprised if you see me entering again next time. I also would really love your comments on my videos and makes on here, i don't mind you critquing me, any publicity is good publicity and any criticism is welcome, good or bad!! So, i just had to enter one particular challenge today at Lili's Little Fairies, as the theme is 'Lavender and Lace' well, two of my most favourite things, shared with some of my most favourite stamps courtesy of a wonderful company named Lili of the Valley, how could i NOT have a go?  Don't you just love their fairies? anyhow without further ado, here is my offering, partnered up with Wild Orchid Craft goodies (hence the heading)
