Well I have used a Sweet Pea stamp for my card and coloured with my promarkers added 3d gloss to the dress and flower to make it pop. Touch of glitter for the wings just because a fairy needs her fairy dust. My flowers where actually white but i coloured with my promarker to match the dress.

Well hello this sunny afternoon hope the sun is shinning where you are. Much better now the rain has gone but at least the garden looks much better think the plants needed a drink.
Well yesterday my son's girlfriend came and handed me a bag which she said she found in the garage not sure if i could save them or if anything is of use but trow if no good. Looked in found a few stamps oh my god what a mess full of ink glitter some fiskers scissors and embossing powder. Hope my face didn't tell a story as my friends will tell you i hate dirty stamps but am getting over it a little. Well they went out straight away and immediately i had to try and clean them. Well they came up ok well only did the few larger ones cause in the bag was 2 penny black and 2 psx 1 a large house oh that will do for my moving house cards with a few others i have gained. Oh sorry going on abit. I inked this stamp up immediately called Bee Sweet 582j1996 never seen before and it inked perfectly.Isn't it the sweetest she looks like she has been picking flowers from the garden and is hurrying to give them them or place in water. Gosh I am happy Bunny. So this is the card i have made for her as a thank you she is coming in a bit so will give her then.
I have used my promarkers, added a tiny touch of glitter but doesnt show on picture. Cuttlebug dotts folder. Paper is K&Co Sparkly Sweet. Ribbon papermania. Card candy coloured with my promarkers to match. Sentiment is Papermania.
