A very pink fairy!

Hi there blog friends

Hope you've all recovered from your Easter weekend. Holiday weekends always leave me totally confused and at the end of it all I haven't got a clue what day it is.  This one seems to have been worse than most and I've definitely lost a day (or two!) along the way.

I've spent around 20 hours with my youngest son scribing for him for his popular culture essay on Christmas (his disability means he can't write or produce huge amounts of text typing so that's my job!)  I've never had quite so much Christmas at Easter before - but I've been well educated along the way.  The good thing is its all done and he's away off to Uni this morning to hand in his books at the library - and get out the next lot - any one for a 10,000 word dissertation on Convergence Theory!!

Enough of Easter (and Christmas!) - I was caught totally on the hop for my DT card for the My Time to Craft Challenge - didn't realise it was Tuesday already and on top of that couldn't see how a whole two weeks had passed since the last challenge!     None the less it IS Tuesday today and time for another challenge at My Time to Craft.  Our new challenge for this fortnight is

Fairy Nice

So dust off those fairies - yes all those as yet un-inked and hidden away in your stash - and lets see all your pretty -  or even dark and wicked - fairies this next two weeks.  The DT girls have made some wonderful cards  for your inspiration  so get over to the challenge blog to see what we've all done - and show us your Magical cards

I've made the pinkest card ever! - with lots of glitter - I'm sure some little girl out there will love this - who doesn't love a fairy!

This is what I did.....

I wanted to keep it fairly simple, its not exactly a CAS card but its not too busy -I managed to hold back on the flowers this time

Stamp - Lili of the Valley Pom Pom
Coloured with - Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Papers - Forever Friends  New Arrival
Distressed with - Tim Holtz Tattered Rose distress ink
Butterflies - Martha Stewart punch
Glitter - Martha Stewart silver glitter glue
Die cut shapes for mounting - Spellbinders
Seam binding ribbon and clear gems from my stash
Sentiment  - Whiff of Joy Magical Wishes text set

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

ABC challenge - M is for Magical
Sweet Stampin challenge -Dies and Doodles
Flutterby Wednesdays - Butterfly, Fairy or Angel on your project

Aww that's so sweet and the second time I've seen that stamp used in the last couple of days. I really must ink her up again, she has been unloved for too long.
