True Love

Good evening to all my friends out there in blogland.

A big "thank you" to those of you who have sent good luck messages
regarding the dreadful bushfires. The fires nearest us, as well as several
others, have been downgraded from 'Catastrophic' and 'Emergency'
to 'Watch and Act'. We still have to be on evacuation alert though.
Last night, about 11pm, the strangest thing happened...within minutes,
the howling wind stopped, and was replaced by the most eerie silence.
There was not even a puff of breeze, and after the non-stop roar of
the wind for a week, the stillness and silence, coupled with the very
strong smell of smoke was quite un-nerving. We had another night of
almost no sleep. The wind came back this morning, and the smoke
has been quite dense all day.

Because it is Thursday, it means that we have another challenge for you
at Crafty Little Fairies , and this week it is the Pink Fairies' turn to invite
you to enter our challege, the theme of which is


Now that's a lovely easy one, isn't it. Don't forget, you can use any image,
stamped or digi, on your entry, but please remember, you must use an image.

A big "thank you" to our sponsor, who this week is Sarah from

Also, our lovely, talented 'Mummy Fairy', Squirrel, is very generously giving
2 Lili Of The Valley stamps to some lucky crafter.

*****The other news at Crafty Little Fairies, is that we have a*****
DT call at the moment. We are looking for 3 new Fairies, so if you would
like to join us, pop over to our challenge blog for the full details.

I have used LOTV's Wedding Carriage to create my card. I fell in love with
this stamp the first time I saw it several years ago at my first visit to a craft show
at  'Ally Pally' in London.

A closer look at the happy couple, and their dappled grey friend.

Inside my card co-ordinates with the front. All the tiny hearts
are off-cuts from the punched border, and coated with Star Dust Stickles.

I slightly decorated the back of my card.
