anyone want the recipe for coma stew - Crafts & Me challenge+Sketch N Stash challenge+Papertake weekly challenge

Good morning everyone and huge apologies for being such a bad blogger, I had every intention of spending the whole evening and night blogging but I made the fatal mistake of making a lush beef stew for Phil coming home and we ended up eating far too much of it and nodded off in front of the tv, do I know how to cook a romantic meal or what I put him into a coma lol...we woke up hours later and after typing this went to bed...but I promise I will catch up with you all...my card for today is using one of the new Jasmine Becket-Griffith stamp from Crafts & Me, I love love love them and of course couldn't just buy one but missed out on the one I really wanted as its gone already boo hoo...this stunning beauty is called Making a Wish, I want a fairy on my shoulder like this teeny one, someone to makes wishes come true whenever I want don't you, I coloured her with Distress inks and glittered her wing and the teeny Fairy's wings too...the lush papers are from the Making Memories Gossamer paper collection, I think I bought this from Crafty Emma's but not 100% sure, I added some fabulous pink velvet ribbon and a bow and the sentiments are one of the bargain ribbons I bought a while back 50p for a whole load would you believe, oooohhhhhh I do love a bargain...the sketch is from Sketch and Stash challenge I'm also entering this for the Crafts & Me with wings challenge and the Papertake Weekly putting on the glitz challenge too...Im off craft and food shopping today, I need a glue pen and the fixing for a family Sunday lunch as my Sister and family are coming to visit and teamed up with my Dad (who is well on the mend now) and my beautiful Daughter and her partner goes to make one fab Sunday...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

Mina, why am I suddenly craving fairies and cuteness? Have I spent too long making cards? Your stamp is to die for and my finger fairly twitched to go and buy it and I am trying to 'stash diet'! Oh, that explains the cravings, lol! Have a great weekend with your family. I feel asleep after my lunch with Mum yesterday so I know how you feel! Hazel x
