"Fairy Special"


Recently I shared a picture here of the fairy garden I made this summer. I wish this magical little creature had found my garden but unfortunately the fairy house remains uninhabited! Oh well, there is always next year.

My card today is one I made for my niece Alyssa on her birthday. I've had this lovely Jelly Park image for ages...I won it in one of the first challenges I ever entered. I colored her with some of my VERY limited supply of copics & used good old Stickles on her wings to make them sparkle. The beautiful DP is from Prima & the CS is Bazzill. The lace is from The Paper Studio & the "glittery" brads are by Pebbles.

I have made several cards in the last week which wouldn't be any great deal normally but, on Sept.9th I had surgery to remove a small growth from my right eye & thought I would be out of commission for some time. The vision is still quite blurry in the eye & it is very light sensitive. However, I am finding myself drawn to my craftroom more than before the surgery....go figure....can't see, so lets go make cards! LOL At least I have an excuse now for coloring outside the lines & crooked papers!

  23. Hi Renee, Answering your ? so you get the answer quicker :o) Just off to my bed.
    I used the Cuttlebug for the Die cut. The card is just under 6x6 and as the top layer is smaller than that it goes through fine. I actually have a GC too but I used the cuttlebug in this instance.
    Hugs Mau xx
    So glad your eye is doing well xxxxx
