Flutterbyes


Gosh, aren't the weeks disappearing rapidly, and therefore it is yet again time
for the Pink Fairies at Crafty Little Fairies to invite you to join us for this 
week's challenge, the theme of which is always such a popular one -

'THINGS WITH WINGS'

You may interpret this one anyway you like e.g fairies, butterflies, 
dragonflies, birds, or even aeroplanes.

A big THANK YOU to our 2 wonderful sponsors this week. They are
and



I made this card for a dear little girl who will be turning (no prizes for 
guessing...) four years old soon. I hope it is 'girly' enough for her, with a
combination of a fairy, butterflies, flowers, and buckets of glitter (perhaps a slight
exaggeration!). The '4' was in a big packet of wooden numbers
I bought years ago - I painted it blue then embossed it with about 
4 or 5 layers of Opals E.P., finally sprinkling it, while hot and
 'sticky', with Martha Stewart Ultra-fine glitter.
I LOVE my new Butterfly Border die!

A closer look at the little fairy and her flowers. The fairy is by PSX, and 
this stamp is one of my oldest. PSX stamps are of such high quality, but 
sadly the company ceased production many years ago.

Inside my card. The blue cardstock and the ink for sponging are a much
closer match in reality (would I tell a fib??!!). Seriously though, isn't it 
strange how colours often do not photograph true, particuly reds.
