TIME FOR THE BOYS -WITH CRAFTY LITTLE FAIRIES



Hello Everyone...well apart  from melting all over the place...all is well...

I did laugh at one of "My Ladies"..it has been so stinking hot and she finally admitted that she was hot..so I sponged her down and changed her pj's and then noticed the bed was quite warm..yep!...had her electric blanket on.[just in case she got cold again I was told..lol..]...I turned it off but it was back on by teatime..sheez..

Right..onto todays post...time for another Crafty Little Fairies Challenge   and this week is "One For The Boys"...not too difficult...really it isn't.



Awww...a Precious Moments image all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils...and he has his dragonfly inside his bottle...

When I first made this card I placed the dragonfly inside the bottle and it sat PERFECT...wings all flat and looked really neat...BUT!!...it was green and you could hardly see him with the papers...so changed to the cream one..and do you think it will flatten out..not on your nellie..



There is the card front with my favourite "Authentique papers "Comfort and Familiar"



And the side view with the dragonflies trying to avoid the dreaded net..


So there is my card for this week...and this week is flying by so very fast...

Our sponsor this week is HANDY HIPPO 




Hoping to get some blogging done as I have no boys tonight...but will probably nod off on the couch or in front of my PC as usual and have to catch up in the morning..

Hope you are all having a great week and big welcome to my newest follower...thank you so much for joining me...

Will see you tomorrow...
