Fairy Wishes

Yes, it's me! I've been busy with Mum after another stay in the hospital, and then a week of madly cleaning and tidying up ready for a house valuation.  Rather a disappointing result though, it seems I could have Buckingham Palace here and it wouldn't sell above a certain amount.  It does mean I'm short of what ideally would make a comfortable move closer to my youngest, although not impossible if I'm careful and the price is right on the property I have in mind to renovate to suit Mum and me.  It would be easier for me then to 'get a life' as there would be someone to help out with Mum if I ever wanted to take a craft class or go dancing!

Anyway, after a couple of days of feeling very sad and down in the dumps I got out my crafty stash again and had a play.  This is one of the little cards I've put together with odds and ends from the bit box ready to take to St Francis Charity.  The little fairy is one of the first LOTV stamps I had in my collection and I've coloured her with copic pens then added sparkle and glaze to the flowers.  The background paper I had stuck down on the card for ages, can't remember where it's from but most likely a digi piece, possibly Nitwits. The die cuts are all Marianne Design and the  little bits of lace and odd embellishments are just that, odd!

These are the Marianne Design dies I used:
background mat for my image, and also used to mark out cut for image CR1249
the flower with the stitched centre and inked petals, and the leaves are from the same set.
the border is the matching CR1250
the swirls are from sets LR0111 and LR0116 and the open flower from LR0112.

I hope you like my little fairy card.  I'm not sure of any challenges she would fit, and to be honest, I'm just making things these days for my own amusement as and when the spirit moves and time allows. I've actually got 3 more little creations to share with you, so best get them added and ready to post over the next few days - see you soon!
