Fairy Sweet

Hey there! Did you see yesterday's race? Kevin was SOOOOOO close to winning. I hate when races come down to fuel mileage. Oh well....2nd place is still an awesome finish for him.



My friend Dawn sent me this stamp (ETA: here's the link to the stamp) a while ago and I finally got a chance to color it during the race yesterday. This morning while waiting for the doctor to call me back with an appointment time (Kara has ANOTHER ear infection....now in the other ear....oye!), I made it into a card. The layout is Deconstructed Sketch #41, the main panel is up on foam tape, and I added Stickles to the wings along with a little coloring with a BG11 Copic. Here's a close-up...



(I'm not happy with the "faux stitching" I added to the sentiment....but oh well.....by the time I added it, the whole card was glued down. There was no going back since I did that as the VERY last thing).

Have a great Monday!

Wow, this card is gorgeous! Love the added sparkle and I thought the faux stitching was a great detail! I thought of you, too, while listening to the race at work Sunday. So close but no cigar - lol! My driver (24) isn't making such a great start this year, although I should be happy he was in the top 10 this week. :-)

This is so adorable. I think the faux stitching is great, adds just enough without taking away from the cute adorable girl. Love this. Congrat's on being featured on MFT's favorite finds!
