Sugar Plum Fairy

Grummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmblegrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  That's not me.  That's the noise our computer is making this morning.  It's on a go-slow, actually it's on a go-very-slow, which is always worrying!

So, how are we today then?  Is the sun shining for you?  It's a beautiful spring day here, and I've just seen the most enormous buzzy bug outside.  Not sure if it was a European Wasp, a Hornet, or some sort of Bee, but I do know that I ran away from it very fast.

Anyhoo, I have my card for this week's LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES CHALLENGE which is a Sketch from Jacque.  

Ingredients are:
Stamped Image  LOTV Dainty Dancing
Medium  Distress Inks
Papers  Basic Grey, and DCWV cardstock
Extras  Nesties and Cuttlebug dies, lots of gems

I turned the sketch over because of the way my image is facing but at least you can still identify it as the right layout!

Off for a haircut this morning.  How does hair go from looking perfect one morning to totally uncontrollable fluffiness the next day?  Is there a particular day that hair grows faster?

Hugs Sxx

Be very careful when approaching a growling computer, they can be known to bite!

Ohh! This was so worth the wait Miss Squirrel! I'm loving the gems around the frame - scrumptious. Love the colours too - great take on the sketch. My hair is permanently unruly so I've decided to go with it and work the whole 'bird's nest' look!! Good luck with your hair cut and have a great weekend. Hugs, Jayne x

very cute - I've just used this image for this challenge too - it reminds me of my youngest daugther Penny! xx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What is the name of the Cuttlebug die you used on those flowers? That is the very one my friend tells me to keep an eye out for. A name would help me know more of what I'm looking for! Now about your card--so sweet! Look at all that bling around the image, and what a cute image! Yes, yes, must get MORE LOTV (more, and I don't even have my first ever order in hand yet!)
