Surprise Us!!!'s Secret Santa time at FSC

Joanna had a wonderful idea of combining this fortnight's challenge with a Secret Santa draw amongst the fashionettes!

You can surprise us with any creation you like, using new stash or your old favourites...
but the fashionettes will be posting their creations off 
to another fashionette...who wont know who her secret santa is until it arrives!

So mine is going in the post tomorrow...
I can't tell you who it is going to!!!!
It's still a surprise lol (and it will probably take 2 weeks to get where ever it is going)
Oh...ok, I'll give you a clue - it isn't anyone in the southern hemisphere!

My stamps this time are some new butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque, the lady from Kaszazz and ivy corner from Penny Black.
Inks are DI and distress markers.
And all on specialty paper.

Please pop on over to FSC,
check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes
and be prepared to be inspired to the core!

Then create something special for us to see...
Surprise Us!
I can't wait!!!!  It is always soooo exciting... lol


I am entering this card into the following challenges -
