Do You Believe In Fairies?

Well, that low-down, sneaky, rotten, miserable, poor excuse for a MoJo has been hiding away from me for far too long now - any tips on giving him a kick up the bum?  To be fair to him though, I've not been the kindest, working stupid hours (oh boy, does that take it's toll on creativity) and not sleeping well.  Hey ho, here's hoping that this three day weekend will be just what the MoJo needs!

Anyhoo, enough of my waffle - I found two fab challenges to combine today .....
LILI OF THE VALLEY - I Believe In Fairies
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Pale Pretty Pastels


I had a rummage through my stash of old sketches and found this one from February 2010 from Penny Black Saturday Challenge - can't believe I've only used it once before! 

Image is Pom Pom from Lili Of The Valley.  Isn't she a sweetie?  I've painted her in dilute Distress Inks (looks like I could have done with Bev's and Jacquie's MasterClass!) and matted her on to a pale yellow card by Bazzil.  The little circular sentiment is also LOTV from the Calendars stamp sheet.

Papers are all Pink Petticoat from a pack that was free with a magazine recently.  It is just so pretty that it hurts to use it.   I think the blossom one has to be one of my favourite all time floral papers.

My small EK Success Retro Flower punch for the little blooms, an ordinary hole punch for the dots, and gems from my stash.

Relieved to say (thanks to Chrissy and Pops) that I think I've sorted my commenting problem and have been trying to get round to see you but there are so many wonderful creations I've missed that it may take me some time to catch up!

The Toadster has just crawled into the bath after a Wii Fit session, so best I go and sort out some supper, otherwise my name will be Mud, not Squirrel!
