It's Fairy time

Hello Everyone,

Didn't expect me on a Sunday did you?....I didn't expect me either, but had a great day colouring yesterday, and building up cards last night, so thought I would share one this morning....



I used the 'Summer Fairies" stamp again from Pergamano...and added the little birds from the same set.
Coloured with pencils, sponge inked my sky, and the papers were from my candy win from 'Lisa'.



Yes, we had a lovely sunny day yesterday...hence a few shadows....finally worked the spellbinders butterfly out...dont remember ever putting it through again and embossing it...never thought about until I saw it on someones blog,and it certainly made a difference, so layered this one up 3 times.
So what I thought was a boring butterfly ...why did I buy it, kind of feeling, has now made me happy...



There you can see the dimension...and all the butterflies wings...the card has actually come out quite pink, but here on my desk it is lavender.

Flowers from WOC, leaves MS punch.

Going to enter this into a few challenges.
All Sorts  [anything goes]

Lili's little fairies challenge  [anything goes]
Aud sentiments [have the word happy]


So there is card number one...made 5 last night, so you will get bombarded with faires, chickens,pandas, and little girls all week...

.Have some lovely new releases to show you....so will pop them in between and I should have enough cards for 2 weeks...but !! I still make more...cant help myself...lol..

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and the weather is kind...we had a lovely sunny day yesterday, not too warm and today looks pretty nice also...this weekend is our 'Art Deco weekend'...all the ladies ,are poshed up in their 1930's get up's and the men with their vintage cars cruising around...my g/son [7] asked me did I drive in cars like that when I was young.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He's still standing...had to keep saying to myself...he is only 7....and replied to him..."not quite"...the lady standing next to us smiled...lucky for her it was a nice smile...

Luv CHRISSYxx

LOL...I love when I see something I have on someone else's card and think..."It can do that???" It's like Christmas, isn't it?

The frame around your image looks so pretty, like fairy wings that match her own. Very nice look. :D

Glad your g/son is still standing..Hahahaha.
