Farewell Fairies

You may have guessed by the title of my blog that it is time to say goodbye to
Crafty Little Fairies. Yes, the very sad news is that our challenge blog is closing
after many happy and successful years. Originally we were Lili's Little Fairies. I 
was overjoyed 18 months ago when I was asked to join the super talented,
and lovely friendly fairies on their DT.

You can use any image you wish, but please remember that it MUST be a hand
coloured, stamped or digi image, not a pre-coloured topper, or just die-cuts.

We have 4 fabulous sponsors, and they are

My card is for our lovely neighbours who have become dear friends.
(The 'Noel' is not crooked...I mounted it on 3D tape, and that is shadow,
as I photographed the card in early afternoon bright sunlight).

This is the first time I have used this sweet stamp which I bought several 
months ago after seeing it on so many blogs. 

Inside the card matches the front.

A closer look at the flower and foliage arrangement, in which I have
used both holly and ivy.
