Pretty Fairy


Hi - this gorgeous image is from Lili of the Valley. I coloured her in with my watercolour pencils and added dashes of fine glitter here and there. The pink backing paper is from Basic Grey and I lightly sandpapered the edges of this. All other papers are Papermania's Blueberry Hill. I have also used pearls and Prima flowers. Thanks for looking - Michelle

Hi Michelle!

Your cards are just gorgeous!! Paper arts (cards, dolls, and scrapbooking) kind of escapes me, lol! I've tried it and well, it's certainly not my forte. I truly admire the design element that you possess :^) I look at your work and think wow, I would never have thought to do that! How cool! :^)

Thanks so much for your sweet comments! It was really exciting to be on the cover..an honor, truly :^) I'll always cherish it!
About the school...after a month of packing up my room and not looking forward to going to this new school, I got a phone call from my district. They said they re-worked the pairings for Art, Music, and PE teachers and offered me my old job back. Talk about coming full-circle!! However, I promised myself that I will not be complacent...I am still going to see what else is out there, artwise :^) It's easy to fall back into one's old ways...especially if they are comfortable, ya know? I mean, logically, I can't afford to up and leave my job, but if something comes along that I would love to do, by golly, I'm doin' it!

How are you doing??? Any plans for the summer?
Fairydust,
Candice

Beautiful card! Love the papers you've chosen and the image is so sweet! I've just been to the Lilli of the Valley challenge blog and they have some candy going to celebrate their new releases, just in case you wanted to take part! Hope you're having a good week and thanks for the lovely comments on my blog.
