Christmas Fairy


Hope you're all enjoying the bank holiday weekend!  And the lovely weather that we always get here in the UK for bank holidays.  Although I'll take our rain showers any day rather than that big old hurricane causing chaos down the east coast of America! 

Here's my latest card - I made it using some lovely My Minds Eye papers that came free with a craft magazine this weekend.  Although I'm not entirely sure if the fairy really goes or she looks a little lost -  but she's stuck there now, I've tried to remove her but it's going to rip the paper underneath, and it took me ages to work out how to cut that square/diamond with my trimmer so the trees ended up the right way round.

Plus I also managed to stamp this image myself - not to shabby, even if I do say so myself - given I usually can't stamp for toffee! (Although there are a few bits I had to fill in with my fine-liner but we'll keep that secret!)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bah! Humbug! - Here come the girls
Card Patterns - Sketch 130

Also check my new badge out on the top right!! I only went and won a challenge at Sew Many Challenges, for this card here.  I'm chuffed to pieces! Thanks for choosing me as a winner!

Thanks for looking and for all your helpful comments!
