Ruby Fairy

This is my second post for today - my neck is now feeling a bit less painful so I made this while Graham was doing some 'work from home' - checking work emails and catching up with phone calls etc.

I used my Bigshot and Spellbinder Lables Two to cut this card shape from a 5 x 5 white card.  It is a tad small but ideal for party invites or for posting now that mail is measured and weighed in the UK!  Its a con I think just to get more money from us but what can we do apart from not post anything - but it is SO nice to hear the plop of the letterbox (or whatever sound your box makes he he!!).

 The stamp is one that I won some time ago in a blog candy in aid of Cancer from Sue (Sue's Ramblings if I am correct) and this is the first time I have stamped her up - have to say I love how she came out and am sure you will be seeing a lot more of them (I won several different ones).  Its not that easy to see but I have glittered her wings and the hem of her fabulous dress.
