A Fairy Thank You

Soooo, despite my promise to myself that I was having a rest over Xmas, I got bored and when I get bored I, first of all, tidy my craft room (it's looking pretty), and secondly, start crafting (thereby making a mess of my craft room, but never mind).

So I started this card last night while my other half was working and finished this morning while he was watching TV:

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Studio Designs - Thank You Cards
Lili's Little Fairies - Something New
Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes

I have made this card following the sketch, but rotated through 90 degrees, and the Lili of the Valley fairy with bumble bee stamp, which although not brand new, this is the first time I have used it on a card, so I think that counts as new.

If that doesn't satisfy the Lili's Little Fairy's requirement, I have used my NEW circle punch (bought in a raid on Hobbycraft yesterday), new flower stamp, which I got in the latest issue of Simply Homemade (review here) and this is the first time I have used the Thank You stamp.

The image was stamped in Versa Fine blank ink and coloured in distress inks.  The flowers and thank you were stamped in the same ink, but coloured with promarkers.  The papers are from a paper pack I got with last month's Crafts Beautiful (review here) and from my stash.  The ribbon also came from my stash.

I think I will give this card to my grandma, as she has been good to me this Christmas and birthday (the voucher I got for Xmas allowing me to do said raid on Hobbycraft yesterday and helping me out of near disaster re the wedding, which I will blog about later - I'm still working on correcting it).

Anyway, I hope she likes it, and I hope you do too.  Not sure if I will get chance to make any more cards before the big day on Saturday soooooo . . . 

Happy Crafting!
