I'm so excited!!

Hello!!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend, mine was going OK until I did something or other - no idea what - and my neck has gone all funny and OMG it HURTS!!  Painkillers are my new best friends and it has not been helped by my HB pointing out that I am moving with all the grace of a Thunderbird puppet if I want to look left or right further than my eyes can see I have to move my whole body, rather than just turning my head.  So he has been calling me Lady Penelope all day.  Honestly I didn't realise I married a comedian :-D  Luckily I managed to get a couple of cards done before it went, although I am behind on what I should have got finished this weekend, but I was in agony and had to stop.  I don't do being ill, it annoys me so much not being able to do what I need to do without wincing :-D  

I made this little card using one of my gorgeous Kraftin Kimmie fairies and sentiment, along with some of the Authentique papers I had left over from a recent scrapbook class at Scrapbook Sisters.  If you haven't seen these papers before I stongly recommend you check them out, as they are a great weight and have a lovely texture - think how some of the MME papers are... but better!

Anyway I thought she would look fab on them, along with some felt from LCI.  There are loads of lovely new colours and I can see I'm going to have to get some more soon.  They are lovely quality too, and cut beautifully with scissors, a cutter, or with dies, and I like the extra texture it gives to a card.

A blingy button, some lovely stretchy lace, narrow grosgrain and some blue crystals finished my card

I don't know why, but I DO like to cut fairies out - it makes them look like they are flying :-D  Oh dear, maybe I've overdone the painkillers!!  Thanks for looking,  Sue xx
