Fairy Nice.......

This fairy is extra nice because she was free! She came as part of a set of two acrylic Whimsy Stamps with a magazine and I have to say I really love them.

To make this card I have used backing papers from the NitWits Promises Too digi set and them coloured the image with promarkers to match, before sprinkiling a bit of  'fairy dust' in the form of some glitter and some pearl paint.

I have also punched some flowers to create some handmade embellishments.

So - a very simple card really, but sometimes I like them that way!

I'm going to enter this in to the following lovely challenges:
  • Sketch Saturday
  • Southern Girls - Angels and Fantasy
  • Di's Digi Designs - Mystical Creatures
  • Papertake - Make your own embellishments
  • Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes
Now that the weather has cooled off a bit, it's time to get back to finishing off my baby blanket as my second lovely Great Nephew has been born........Tyler-James, born on 23rd July. His due date was my birthday, which is 29th July so, although I am glad that he is here safe and sound, I have to confess that I was looking forward to sharing my birthday with the little man. Plus it would have given me a few extra days to finish off that blanket too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today....see you soon with a picture of a new baby card and a completed blanket with any luck!!
