Most cards are fun to make but others do stress us out making, don't they! I think your little moment of "Eeeek, I've got no fairy or butterfly" actually was a lucky incident, as the butterfly really works well this absolutely adorable ladybug - sorry fairy - image!

Hi Chrissy, you totally amaze me. I don't know how you work so hard all day and then still manage to be so creative the rest of the time. I think your card is just adorable and I so agree, she is so cute you could eat her up. :O) I hope that you have had a great week. I think if I remember right that you are into your Friday at the moment, so I hope your weekend is starting off in the right direction. I have one more full day tomorrow then I have two off followed my six 9 hours days. Pray that I make it and am able to pick up some energy along the way. lol... Anyway, my friend.... have a great day . Hugs, Lisa
