PIXIE DT,and something,totally different,

Hi guys normally I join in with the WOYYW but had to go out early this morning to take my sister in law to get some shopping,and have so much too do today I just wont get time to go around everyones,desks,today. So will miss this weeks,out.
Right onto the PIXIE COTTAGE,We have a wonderful sketch to follow with the choice of 2 colors,I have opted to do both this week.
Once again I have used the Humming Bird by Artish just love these new images,and to be honest this is the first time I am actually,happy with my card,makes a change,so here is it.

Papers Papermania,I think,lace from my stash puched leaves,flowers from wild orchid crafts,and the frame was cut from my storybook,cartridge. Then stamped a sentiment,and and added a piece of ribbon.
We are getting some amazing entries each week which I am loving getting to visit,you all so keep it up and hope to see you again this week,hugs cheryl xxx

alifactory garden delights,something you may find in your garden
stampinB's animal in a die cut
totallystampalicious I got the blues
craftyourpassion,double it flowers,lace
craftsandme glitter
toptiptuesday use image or sentiment

Right as I said something totally diferent,I was trying to get my Other DT card done last night with not,much luck and whilst I was messing about I decided to,draw around my hand yeah I know,you are all thinking what on earth.
Well this is what I came up with I masked all between the fingers,and then used once again the stamp from the artistic stamper which I just love. Then used the free stamp that came with the,craft stamper a few months ago. Then I decorated with,bits and bobs from my stash,and added some distress inks,to it. The finger nails are done with,sepia glossy accents,and whilst still wet I added some,glitter.
Well here it is hope you like it,

Pennys challenge alter something hope this counts,as did alter my hand,hehe
