Lili's Little Fairies - A Sketch (GDT Week 2)

Morning all, today is my second week as an Extra Fairy over at LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES CHALLENGE and this week we have a totally fabulous sketch by our Fairy Teamie Jacque for you to play with.

As always, the regular Fairies have provided some totally amazing inspiration, I am sure you will all agree that their standard is incredible.  It is what I am aiming for when I grow up!

Anyway, enough waffle, here is my GDT card - I hope you are prepared for an overload of 80s retro.

Ingredients for this card
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Dovecraft Funky Retro
Sentiment  Personal Impressions
Extras  Craftword Card Tiger Card Candi

Does this not just scream 80s at you, with the clashing colours, the denim, the animal prints, and the sales rep's striped shirt with a wider than wide tie?!  Takes me right back to my teenage years - thank goodness the clothes fashions have vanished - those shoulder pads were killers!

So, I hope you have a fun time with Jacque's sketch and shall look forward to nosing through all your fabulous entries.

Hugs, Fairy Squirrel xx

He is so sweet, I don't think I have him-I'll have to look, but if I haven't this card makes me want him
I was only 13 when the 80's ended so I didn't really have much experience of the fashions, lol

I'm in love with this retro bear! Just love that shirt and the tie is perfect! You kill me, woman! I have these papers and I'm seeing them in a whole new light! I'd tell you I am too young to remember the 80's but it would be a vicious lie!!!!! Thank you for your kind words on the abomination I entered this week - I'm off to the Fairy School of incompetence now! Have a super day, hugs, Jayne x
