Away with the fairies at Sparkles

Hello All,

It's Saturday evening in Australia, and right now, my card making enthusiast friend Linda and I are drinking a very lovely bottle of wine and spending some much needed time together. We live 3 hours apart and don't get much time for just us. But we are keeping a level head (for now), as we are both part of the DT for Sparkles and as conscientious team members, and the fact it's early morning in the UK, means it's also time to tell you about the newest challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Our challenge this month is about those mythical winged creatures from the bottom of the garden, fairies.


As soon as I heard about this theme I went hunting for a particular fairy image I'd seen before. After a lot of googling and blog stalking I finally found her - Fairy 3 from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Isn't she just marvellous? I coloured her with Copics and once again pulled pages from my Kaisercraft Bonjour collection of papers. As I do so very often, I added lace and this time some Kindy Glitz glitter glue to sparkle up those wings.

Our challenge this month is sponsored by

Please see the challenge blog for all the details. I hope you'll join us at Sparkles with your fairy creations.

Entered into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Pink and Green
Paper Crafting Journey - My Sentiment Exactly
Sarah Hurley Challenges - Magical
Flutterby Wednesdays - Favourite colour (dusty pink Copics)

Thanks for visiting!
