Fairy and a Rainbow



Hello Everyone................Hope you are all well and dry,and having a good week, can you believe how fast this week is going...Thursday mornnig here already and a big day for me...wont be home till 7.30pm..[deep sigh].....

.'My Lady' is doing very well...she is eating well, has put on a bit of weight, her memory is worse than ever, but she obeys all the rules and lets me do everything...although she found her frozen meals for Saturday & Sunday, in the freezer and for some reason decided to get one set out on a  Wednesday...not that it did any harm but I have told her to leave them alone..I will do it on a Friday..and she has never turned the mini oven on again either....after scorching  the lid of her dinner.

I take the boys with me at night, as I'm back to my 20 day stint of boy sitting....they think she is so funny, with her memory and all...she asked them last night did they win their game???????

They looked at her so blankly, and I had to get my brain into gear rather quickly, and told her it was cancelled because of the rain, so not too sure what week she was in then..but she asked it 9 times while we were there.....lol...and kept giving them lollies ....at 5pm...until I said NO MORE..by using me eyes at the boys...I still got that look..lol..it still works.

Anyway, onto my card..



This cute little fairy was a freebie from www.sweetcolouringpages.com

Her hair and skin coloured with Faber Castell pencils....

The mushrooms were coloured with E00 and RV24 copics...
Dress G21
Wings RV24,R81,B00..

Added a bit more of the ground in with a black marker and coloured with pencils.


Printed the rainbow out coloured with copics, cut it out and glittered it up....
Inked the sky with SP Bashful blue and sponge.



The papers were a freebie from Paper Craft essentials, with a butterfly embossing stencil, but have not played with that yet...ok..I forgot I had it, but will play with it soon.

added a bow and memory box butterfly, some gems...  done!

Going to enter this card in a challenge at http://chocolatecoffeecards.blogspot.com

Hi Chrissy, You are always so positive. My week couldn't be any slower, but I am happy tomorrow is Thurday here and I only have one more day until Jerry and I are taking the M&Ms on a surprise mini trip for the day. I for one can not wait. Both of our kids are very GOOD teenagers and really don't give us much trouble, so I love to surprise them when money allows or I just can. lol... Anyway my friend I love your card with her beautiful wings and your awesome rainbow. It really is a great card and I just could not help but smile when I saw it. My Mother-in-law is like your lady. She forgets, and she always asks how my Grandma is. (She passed in 2002) and I used to tell her, but each time was like the first that I just started to say "Oh she is doing great" I couldn't bear to upset her so. She is now in a home for alzheimers and has reverted back to only speaking spanish so other than her temperment I don't catch too much of what she says. It is a very hard illness for everyone, and I think you are a rock for doing what you do for a living. Me, I am only good at giving people their prescriptions and telling them that I hope they feel better soon. :O) I guess we do what we can and it make a village right? Wow did I go deep there or what. I must really need to get my fany to bed. lol... Have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Lisa
