You'd Better Believe In Fairies!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well today. We got some rain yesterday and the weather has turned a bit cooler which always puts me a good mood!

Today I have a card for you that uses one of the brand new images from Squigglefly. This is called Woodland Nymph and I think she's just about the prettiest little fairy I've seen!

This was made for the challenge at the all sorts challenge blog where the challenge was a sketch.

I colored the image with copic markers and then ran some glue over the wings and sprinkled on some glitter. My flowers were punched out of some designer paper and I put some yellow stickles in the centers.

The words are computer generated in a font called Curlz. You can get it here free if you like it!

I covered my punched border piece with vellum that was punched and embossed with the swiss dots folder. I really like using vellum like this! When I showed this card to Chesney she said I needed to put something on the inside. I pondered that for a bit and finally came up with this

I thought that was appropriate because those gnomes are creepy!

So many wonderfully fun things are happening this week! Tomorrow you will get to see what the Squigglefly design team is so excited about because we will get to start showing you sneak peeks of the fabulous images they will be releasing on Saturday. These images are from an extremely talented artist who is new to Squigglefly and new to digital images! There will be sneak peeks Wednesday, and Thursday, and on Friday more sneak peeks with a blog hop that has a wonderful grand prize of ALL 13 new images plus some other goodies! Believe me when I tell you that you don't want miss out on any of the fun!

Saturday is digi day at Card Universe and there are some fun challenges planned as well as a few prizes! I hope to see you there!

Yesterday I did get to talk to my doctor and they have scheduled me for physical therapy for my neck. I start that tomorrow. Right now my neck is much looser so the pain isn't near as bad as it was. Hopefully the physical therapy will take care of the rest of it and I can get on with normal life! I do appreciate the kind thoughts and caring concern you have all shown me!

Have a wonderful day, and as always I thank you for taking time to see what I've been up to!
