My disaster fairy and Wendy's digital doodling.

I found this fairy at the Lilac Garden. It is a freebie decoupage print. Although I am not vey good at or overly fond of decoupage, I decided to give it a go. I spent hours cutting everything out and putting the fairy together. Then I glitterified her wings and put some stickles on her dress and jewelery. I left her in my scraproom to dry, quite happy with the outcome. I cut the oval with my Cricut and the card came together very quickly. That is untill Hannah came to visit. She gave the fairy one look and declared that she was the prettiest fairy she had ever seen. I left the room to pour some colddrink and when I came back, she proudly told me that she had put some gltter on the fairy's sandals for me, because "You forgot,ouma!"

Disaster! How can I be angry with my little angel? she was only trying to help. Only problem is, the glitter was everywhere, all over the fairy's lower leg! I really didn't feel like starting from scratch, so out came the flowers. I stuck a big white rose over the foot, but it just didn't look right, so that is when the other flowers came out to play. Very over the top, but everybody seems to like it. Just to save myself more problems, I put some stickles on the flowers too! LOL
The inside has tags.

The next card is one I finished today. I love Wendy's images from Digital doodling. Just as I finished the card and checked out my blogs, I discovered to my horror that Wendy is no longer going to be doodling, because she suffers from Arthritis and it is just becoming too difficult for her. Hop on over there and give her some love. Lets hope that this is not the last we hear of this very talented lady! Papers are My Minds Eye, Bazzil and Imaginisce. Ribbon. lace and bling is from my stash.
This sweet turtle is another one of Wendy's images. Papers are My minds Eye and Bazzil. Ribbon and bling is from my stash again.
The inside showing all the tags I made. I coloured all the images with my Copics. Love those markers!!

Can't believe that my mid term break is over already. Its back to school again tomorrow! At least there is a long weekend at the end of March and it is Hobby-ex this weekend. Hoping to be able to go. Don't know though, because as usual, everything is happening this weekend!
SRC meeting on Friday after school, then Cheerleading practise. Computer training at school on Saturday and much needed shopping with DH on Sunday, so you see, Hobby-ex might just have to wait till next year!
