She's Baaaaack!

Hi everyone. Well, I spent yesterday having a mini pity party for myself for doing so poorly on that damn office test! Then a good friend called me and jerked me back to reality. Things could be worse, and things will be better.

I thought I could use a fairy to help things along, so I pulled out my favorite, lovable, chunky House Fairy to make a card.


(click to enlarge)

She's colored with Copic markers and chalk and I did a lot of dotting with a black pen. Her glasses have crystal effects, her wings have glitter, and the bow happened because when I cut the shape out I got a little too close to the fold and needed something to hold it together!

Sorry to keep this short, but if I went on now I'd only ramble. Have a great day, and keep the faith! Thanks for looking!

I do hope the fairy card got you out of a funk Holly! Don't get down on yourself. I once learned in Weight Watchers that allowing myself to be depressed about something (and probably eat bad stuff!) was just allowing the reason or the other person one more 'hold' over me that was not necessary. You are responsible for your own energy and YOU lady, have a lot of energy! Keep us inspired!

Holly I am sure you will do fine! It is not easy typing on a lap top! I am surprised they had you do the test on one. Most offices use a regular key board.
I love this image too! I look like this sometimes!!!! lol!
