Celebrating our new artist Janna Prosvirina with 10% off for newsletter readers
Today we have a fabulous new artist Janna Prosvirina joining us here at Crafts and Me, with her wonderful range of fairy's and fantasy images that you will not find any where else, these will be available to purchase in deeply etched unmounted red rubber.
I am sure you will fall in love with them just like the d.t's and I have done and the d.t's love the larger size that these images come in making them easy to colour.
There is 10% off these new releases for all newsletter readers by entering the code at the checkout which was sent to you. This offer is from the 30th Oct-6th November while stocks last.
Here is a little bio from Janna followed by some pictures of her images.
I am a traditional artist/illustrator from Austria. I am entirely self-taught, I began working mainly in pencils but found my way painting faeries in watercolour.
I have always been interested in myth, legend, fairytales and fantasy worlds created by other artists, that is why fantasy themes are my favourite.
Sources of my inspiration are nature, autumn, music, people around me. I love painting, travelling, photography, modelling, going online and talk to creative people. I have a wide range of interest in different styles of art and still exploring different media. I am happy to have the opportunity to share my creations with others.
Hope you enjoy my work.
Here are Janna's images available HERE
Don't forget we have new digi's here for you the 1st of every month.
And there is still time to join in the fun over on the challenge blog with a chance to win a prize.

Blessed by Sara burrier
Mona here again to pester you with my jibberjabber, lol. This week hasn`t been the best for me. On tuesday i was completely without any voice and to have to work in a grocery store with no voice to talk to the customers, is not so cool. The customers thought it was very funny though, lol.
Well...on to my creations. This time i have made a card using the totally adorable digi "Blessed" by Sara Burrier. And because she is so cute i had to use "cute" colours too, lol. She is available right here in the Crafts and Me store.
I also want to show you my sample for the last Digi Team challenge. Here i have used The brand new Lady of the Field also by Sara Burrier. Available here.
Don`t forget to enter the rubbah team challenge going on over at the challengesblog. The theme is winter blue`s. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I`m off to work now. Take care everyone!

Hiya!! I am a SAHM with three lovely boys aged 15, 13 and 8. Married to my best friend for 16 years, I am truly blessed. Have been living in the UK now for 5 years, originally from South Africa. I began my card making journey in October 2009 and am so addicted now that I wonder what I ever did with my time before this. It's crazy as there never seems to be enough hours in the day to craft lol! I feel so honoured to have been asked to join this fabby design team, thank you ever so much Teresa for this wonderful opportunity.
Good Morning fellow crafters. I am so excited as I write this post but also very nervous at the same time so please be gentle with me. It's going to be so great working with all these fabulous images and today I have used the gorgeous Irish Christmas Fae who is available to purchase from the store here.
I have coloured her in using a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noirs. Copic colours used are: E29, E25, E35, E71, E51, E00, E11, R20, G85, G82, G40. If you click on the picture to get a larger view you might be able to see the sparkle on her wings as I've used some Spray & Sparkle glitter which isn't showing up too well in the picture. For more details please feel free to visit my blog. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

Two of the Recently Released Sara Burrier Images
This photo shows a recently released Into The Word image by Sara Burrier. This image is very long and thin and would make a magnificent image to use for a bookmark. I've sized her at 4.49" high by 1.46" wide. You can find this lovely reading fairy at the Crafts and Me online store here.
You may have seen this card at the current Crafts and Me "Blue, Green and Pink" challenge. I've used Hope by Sara Burrier on this step card.
You can find these and more newly released digi images at the Crafts and Me store here.
There's still time to add your entry to the current Digi team's "Blue, Green and Pink" challenge here.

Another Sneek Peek
Gosh hasn't it turned cold this week. After 29 degrees heat a couple of weeks ago to 2.5 degrees this week has come as a big shock. I'm hiding under my duvet whilst hubby is on nightshift. I can't say I've been in the mood to craft either. I really could do with someone else doing my housework and cooking to free me up some time, any offers?????
I have another sneek peak to show you today and I believe this one is called "Clematis", from the new artist at Crafts and Me, isn't she beautiful adorned with clematis flowers everywhere. I haven't quite finished this card really. I want to add some shading and clouds around her so I will be returning to this card but am struggling with my mojo this week.
Full details can be found on my blog.
