Fair Maiden

Here is my Fair Maiden for SPA this week. It's Terri's theme and she has made a most wonderful sample to inspire us all... go over and check it out!
I've used images from a lovely lady Sandy who is on Etsy as onecrabapple. Sandy has some really quirky collage sheets, great quality too.

Make a Wish

on ThemeThursday this week, it's black and white.... as you can probably tell from my blog I love black and white (NOT!) it's always a challenge to me... it always looks as if there's something missing (COLOUR!) lol Here's my effort... it's a postcard...
Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog!
