a fairy and lots and lots of glittery stuff...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy, I didn't get out at all yesterday as I still didn't feel up to it, I didn't even do any crafting...shock horror...I'm definitely going out today though as I'm starting to go a bit stir crazy and need some fresh air...I did nothing at all yesterday how lazy is that, although my throat and head do feel a bit better so maybe putting up with my rubbish conversation was worth it, mind ya I know when its time to go when I start arguing with the TV lol...btw Phil's chin and hand are fine just a bit grazed and I did give him just a teeny bit of sympathy finally, well he deserves a little bit even if he didn't give me any doesn't he lol...onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time its our lovely Sharon's choice and she chose the fantastic combo of Yellow, Blue and White and an added option of using shells, no matter how hard I looked I couldn't find anything at all with shells on in the right colours so I didn't use the option...I used this amazingly beautiful stamp from Crafts and Me for my card, isn't she so amazingly beautiful, I seem to have a thing for fairies and butterfly, omg I'm such a girl lol...this beauty is called Turn to Hesed and is by the amazingly talented Sara Burrier, she is amazing to colour and I used distress inks and loads and loads of glitter, well I had too didn't I...the beautiful papers are from the new Prima 6x6 paper pad - Fairy Belle (see I told you, more fairies), I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and it is such a magical, beautiful pad...I finished with a sentiment from my stash and a selection of crystals (I bought these so cheaply from a wedding cake shop), diamond and pearls and a few sparkly Petaloo flowers...the stunning sketch is from a new challenge for me, Card Patterns challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and CCEE Stampers challenge...I'm off to get ready to get myself out now because if I dint you will have to put up with the ramblings of a stir crazy loony again tomorrow (yes I heard all those people saying isnt that normal lol)...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
