lazy days and more fairies...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fabulous day yesterday?...we didn't do anything at all, just lazed around and chilled really, but the weather was horrible here yesterday, drizzling, cold and windy...I hate days like that don't you, so the old heating went on and I made lunch and then we did nowt at all...my card for today is using this amazing new Sara Burrier digi stamp from Crafts and Me, isn't she stunning, Sara Burrier does the best fairies don't you think, they always remind me of the Flower fairies...I still have a set of them somewhere I think I stashed them sonewhere... I used to read them with my Daughter when she was growing up, we spent many many hours reading together, I think that's why she could read before she started school...or maybe shes a child genius and we didn't know it lol...I coloured this Lady of the Field with distress inks and teamed her up with more of the stunning Michele R Designs papers digi papers, this one is called Vintage Flowers with Lace, I printed three and cut them to add some dimension to the corners...I finished with a sprinkling of gorgeous green gems...ooohhhhh I have realised I didn't make this for any challenges at all, ok ok don't all faint at once lol...I haven't a clue what we are up to today but if the weather is as bad as yesterday, we will have to be wrapped up to do it...have a brill one everyone
