Away with the Fairies.......

Hi Girls

Well I really AM away with the fairies today..  I am SO excited!!!  I'm being showcased today by the Sugar Nellie Blog....   Thrilled to bits doesn't go half way to what I'm feeling right now....  I can't believe I've been chosen - and because I do love their stamps so much - particularly their fairies, I feel this is a massive honour!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Soooo I better get on to describing my card...  I've chosen Fairy Glen Charlotte from Funky Kits to colour - she's so cute with her coy little look... and I've coloured her using a mix of promarkers and copics.  I've used a cool grey to give her depth around the image... then I used glossy accents to the flower and her shoes, and of COURSE, lots of glamour dust.  I mean, what fairy in her right mind would be seen out without her sparkle?  Not one that lives in MY house!! LOL!  I used Nesties Labels 22 for the shape, with some flowers using the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies.  Not sure if I like them or not.  I've sponged versamagic pink around the edge of the shape.  The DP is from the Gossamer 6 x 6 pack from Memory Box...  and I've used my MS Cherish edge punch for the pink bazzill.  And to finish, I've used some super pearl trimming which were a lovely pressie a while back from my mate Coops.  Oooh and I've distressed the edges of the pale green, and added Stickles.... never too much glitter, huh?  (As I'm typing, I can see glitter on my nose somewhere - so squinting to find it.... ever done that?  You just KNOW it's there!! LOL)

So now I'm going to be floating on air (maybe with my fairy wings??) for the rest of the day because of this honour.... well, after I've done the housework then my half hour Wii fit.... I'm determined to get a bit fitter in the near future... Wish me luck!

Thank you for visiting my blog today, and any comments you may leave - they mean a lot!

    Thanks for popping over to my blog. In answer to your question, the silver sentiment is a Craftwork Cards one. Crafty Emma does sell CWC sentiments, but I just checked and she doesn't have this particular one in stock. However, Glitter Pot & Foil Play usually have them. Hope that helps xx Jenny xx
