Oh happy day!


     Ready for another one of my kitchen sink cards?  This was one of those cards that you just totally lose yourself in the making of.  The butterfly fairies really inspired me to have some fun.
     It just so happens that our newest challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil starts today on the Fourth of July and our theme is "F" is for....  Obviously I've got a fairy thing going, but I also have flags and flowers.  I just cut some random pieces of the paper collection for the flags in different sized fishtails and some half scallops.  The flowers are all handmade from dies and punches with lots of embossing with a large stylus.  Had to add lots of sparklies to their pretty wings too.  Hope they make you smile cause they make me every time I look at them.  Honest to goodness the one in the air looks just like me as a baby, pigtails and all!
     So figure out something for the challenge with "f's" and a Mo image and play along for your shot at some goodies from Mo's store.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafts and Me--anything goes
Bearly Mine--anything goes

  42. Ohhhhh good heavens....I hate being on vacation!!!! LOL. I'm kidding, I don't, but I miss so much. Just stopped in to make some quick posts before we head out again and I just had to stop by your blog and say HELLOOOO!!!! I'm not ignoring you, in fact, I miss seeing everyone's blog. I just perused through what I missed and saw this one and threw the brakes on..it's GORGEOUS!!!
    I'll be home and able to really read them all and comment, but until then, I'm loving what I'm seeing on my phone, just not the same on a tiny screen.
    Hope you're doing well.
    Hugs to you Hick,
