Have a fairy happy day

Morning all.  How are we?  I've been for a tail tidy already and am now back home slurping a latte.  Wonder if there is any shortbread left from Christmas ...... anyhoo, I have a birthday card to share with you today.  It was the gorgeous Lisa's birthday earlier this week and I made this for her.

Now then, for those of you who have already seen Delphine's version of this image this week, I beg of you, please don't laugh at my effort.  We all know that this delightful French package of artistic talent is one of the Queens of Colour, so please don't view the two side by side!

This little lass is from the Tiddly Inks set Thanks Fairy Much
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
(I am secretly very pleased with how her skirt looks)
Papers are more of the Lucy Cromwell Design Stack (love these if you hadn't guessed)
The sentiment is from the same Tiddly set
Butterfly dies are Cheery Lynn
And the gorgeous gems are Papermania

Thanks for popping over today, I haven't had much blogging time over the last ten days so am sorely behind with visiting but I will make a best effort to have a catch up later.

Something very exciting happened this week, which I can't share with you just yet, so just keep watching.  You won't be able to miss the announcement when I do make it!

Have a happy Saturday all
Hugs, Squirrel xx

Laugh??? The result of your "effort" is fantastic, my lovely Squirrel <3 - I love, love your fairy! Beautifully coloured and the choice of colours is perfect, DI Queen!!! Mwah!!! BIG hugs Delphine xx

That is a fabulous card Squirrel and you should be REALLY pleased with the skirt, it's fabulous!! You are extremely brave though...I would do a mile long detour to avoid anything with that much hair!! xx

Faith A said...

Such a pretty card, love her skirt AND her hair.

Have a great weekend.

Annette said...

Aww hun she's lovely. I haven't got this image, but she's gorgeous. And I LOVE your colouring. You inspire me to use my DI reinkers more often, and yes, I really must use them again soon and not be lazy. I think it's January that gets me down and I take the easy copic route too often!
Hope your Saturday is good, and not too damp. It's raining rivers here today. :0(

Kat W said...

There are some super talented colourists out there who make me feel that my colouring looks like it has been done by a 3 year old! I tell myself that it's a good thing as it pushes me to try harder :-)
Anyway, your colouring is lovely especially given that hair this long is always really tricky, and the CAS design is stunning as always :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
