This one stands up

Hello Everyone,

Thank goodness this card stands up...yesterdays card finally did stand up with a bit of persuasion..the front panel was just so thick and heavy it kept coming

Today at  work my young man and  I were chatting, and he was asking what will happen to me when his time for help runs out...and I explained....not a lot...I just have to wait till another one registers and I go from there, so he has asked me to stay..once a week, so that was really good,I said yes.He only lives around the corner from me and the money will be handy.

Today I have a card to share with you, that I made on the weekend...

I used a freebie image from 'Bugaboo' and a little fairy coloured and cut out from a stamp set called 'Pergamano' Summer Fairies..and this was in my candy win from Dora a hole sheet of clear stamps 4 fairies and tiny birds and ohter little animals...really cute, thanks Dora.

Coloured with pencils and a few Memento pens, and a white gel pen...inked my sky with a sponge and used my  template.added glitter to her wings and ladybugs spots.

Not sure why there is no side view...but it is dimensional.
Paper is Prima - 'Sweetfairy'....some half pearls in the corners,and lovely organza ribbon, and thats it really.

Going to enter this card in a challenge at Sir stampalot  [In the garden]

Really enjoyed making this card, so cute, love the garden scene, had it for ages and never used it.

There we are, all done, nearly time for me to get motivated for another day at the office toilet brushes in hand,duster tucked into me knickers and we are off...

Welcome to my new followers, thank you so much for joining me, and thank you to you all for leaving me such wonderful commments....highlight of my day to come home flip the pc on, and glance across from the kitchen as it is loading up and I'm making my coffee, and then the magic words are there under my name 'you have ? comments...I nearly break my neck to get over  to read
