Hi everyone! Isn't it great to already be at hump day? I love four day work weeks!
Squigglefly is having a short sale! Yesterday they announced a discount code on their blog for ten percent off, but the sale ends today. I just wanted to let you know about it before it was too late! You can grab the code from their blog, and if you aren't already a follower become one because when they reach 300 followers they will offer a 30% discount code! Whoo Hoo! Can't beat that with a stick!
Well, Jackie Mathews has done it again. She's drawn an image that just makes me itch to color and make a card! I'm talking about her captivating little Moon Fairy that was released on Saturday.

Isn't she just adorable? I colored her with Copic markers and chalk and then added lots of glitter. I followed the sketch for Saturday's sketch challenge on Paper Craft Planet, and since I used some tissue paper on the vertical strip I am also entering this in 365 cards challenge to use tissue paper.
The words were printed out on the computer and then I cut a star shape out and dredged the edges in embossing ink and embossed some silver embossing powder on it. It doesn't really look silver in the photo though.
The paper behind the vertical strip is some blue handmade paper that has silver embossed dots and stars all over it. I cut one of the silver stars out and glued it to the ribbon's knot and then I found some silver cording and pulled individual strands of it out and tied them in the knot and let them fan out. The whole card really does look so much better in real life.
Jackie's images just make me smile. Here's something I found while blog surfing the other day, and even though it's a commercial I think the message is wonderful and it makes me smile too so I'm sharing it with all of you! If you can't view the video from my blog, you can view it at youtube HERE
