Well, that's what happened to me this morning! After making most of this card yesterday, I couldn't come up with a sentiment I was happy with.... Till I opened my eyes this morning and knew what I needed to put on it! LOL! And you know when you're really pleased with one of your cards (unusual for me - there's generally a niggle somewhere)..... well this one has it! Think it's because I believe in fairies! Yes.... I believe! When I decoupaged the wings for this, I had real trouble actually cutting the wings off another fairy to do it. I felt like I was going to draw blood.... that is if fairies DO have blood???? Or do they just have fairy dust??
This is a Nellie Snellen image - Frog on Flower - I bought from Samuel Taylor at Embsay... sorry I can't find a link. It was one my darling OH chose when we were there..... (think he's a secret believer too... hehe) So I coloured her in with my trusty pens then decoupaged the wings. I then used a DP from My Minds Eye - Lost and Found - which is glittered on the back, but I wanted the lovely pink paisley on the other side - so ignored the glitter.... I could add plenty of my own!! hehe! Then, I added a BEAUTIFUL trim I received as a RAK from my mate Nic over at Coops Cluttered Corner... thank you Nic - it was just right for this card! Oh, and I used a nice nestie for behind the image. Then lastly, (this morning when I got up) I added a handwritten sentiment...... cos I knew it just had to be 'believe' on this card.... think the fairies visited me overnight! I distressed all the edges, then oooh of course, added loads of glitter and stickles!

Hope you all had a nice weekend btw, I did..... my daughter treated me to a nice lunch in York followed by a trip to see Legally Blonde at the theatre there as a birthday treat! To use their 'speak'..... 'OMG you guys - it was TOTALLY wonderful!!' So much energy on the stage, and the songs were brilliant! Not to mention a HUNK of a UPS guy who had the audience in fits of drool every time he came on stage!! He was HOT! (OK yes thats from me, a 58 year old very-happy-with-her-darling-OH woman!) But we can l-o-o-k.... can't we?? hehe
Right, better go now, otherwise I'll be late for my stint in the charity shop....
Hugs to all and Happy Monday...
