Fairy Wishes

Well another week nearer the end of this year - crumbs where has it gone my friends?

It was a gorgeous morning here but has turned wild - dull and very windy but I managed to get Lynne's winter jumpers washed and dried on the line outside so they are lovely and soft.  Sheets tomorrow perhaps!!

My card for today is made using the ever so cute Flying Frog clear stamp from Nellie Snellen - these are very similar to the new ones from Sugar Nellie aren't they?

A wee peak for you of the flowers and sentiment.....

..and then we have the gorgeous fairy - doesn't she look like a cheeky wee imp?.......
 ...and finally the completed card......
I did something new for this borrowing the idea from Liz at Pink Petticoat - I printed the paper directly onto the card blank and it came out a treat!! Even printed on the back which makes it look even better than a plain white back.

Flying Frog clear stamp from Nellie Snellen;
Sentiment stamp from Ladybug Crafts Ink;
DP is from Pink Petticoat Lola's Boudoir Lavender and White Random Dots, other two are from stash;
Ribbon, gems and flowers from stash;
PMs used :~ Blush, Cinnamon, Sandstone, Caramel, Cool Grey 1 and 2, Lilac, Lavender and Bluebell.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:~
FetchASketch No 9 (fabulous sketch girls);
Pollycraft Girls, Girls, Girls;
Cutie Pie No 3 Recipe - Lilac/Silver, Fairy, Lace/Ribbon, Glitter and 3 buttons or flowers.
