Fairy Dust Magic

Morning all!  Did you have a good Christmas then?  We did, it was quiet and cozy and just lovely.  Christmas Day was just me, Toad and Vince and after we got back from Mass we had a really relaxing day, I didn't even get stressed with the dinner!

Santa must have thought I had been a good girl this year as he brought me loads of wonderful stamps (good job I had stocked up on EZ Mount) and my darling mum gave me a cheque as a hefty contribution towards a Grand Calibur.  I knew she was doing this so I had ordered the Calibur a few days before Christmas, thinking it would arrive in the New Year but thanks to the excellent service from Glitter Pot and an extra effort from Royal Mail, it arrived on Christmas Eve!  Wheeeeeeeee.

Anyhoo, enough of Christmassy things, I had a birthday card order to do - Doreen who I sit with at Church had asked me for a simple but quirky card for a 70th birthday.

I've used  from Sprinkle Some Love from Sugar Nellie Home Grown Collection
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose
Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord, Shabby Shutters, Worn Lipstick
Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Mustard Seed
Sentiment is from Hobby Arts
Matting layer is Papermania from a Capsule Collection
Iridescent gems from Crafty Devils
And a sprinkling of Glamour Dust in the tea and the tiny pink bag

Hugs, Sxx

Gorgeous card Squirrel. Love the sweet image. Sounds like you had a lovely stress-free Christmas. We were quite busy from Christmas Eve until this morning. But fairly stress-free too. I never get stressed about the cooking as I do enjoy cooking for my family. Not often I get the chance now.

Nice to hear you got your Grand Calibur before Christmas. I might be prejudiced as I work in a Post Office but I think Royal Mail have done a great job at an incredibly busy time for them. Hope you're enjoying playing with your new toy!

What a beautiful card and I think this is perfect for a quirky 70th birthday. What sweet little fairies adding the secret ingredient to the tea. (Love! Love is the secret ingredient!)

Have fun playing with the Grand Caliber. We will expect grand things from you with it!

What a delightful card, so cute. If you love your Grand Calibur half as much as I love mine then you will enjoy it very much indeed :o)
