Fairy Fabric Card for the Creative Card Crew

Here's another fabric fairy - this time the image was only partial, but I liked the image of the little boy fairy (what are boy fairies called? Pixies? Elves?) so much, I worked around it and cut it into a square, then snipped away around the top of the image

aren't these flowers fabulous? They are by Prima
and the double ribbon means that this is perfect for this week's creative card crew challenge which is - ribbons

I heard yesterday that the black and white card I did with the snippy flower won the Inspirational Card Sketches challenge last week, so I have some goodies on the way

Yesterday I met up with an online friend Denyze, who only lives just down the road from me and we went and did a bit of crafty shopping at a treasure trove of a place she had found. It was inside a really scruffy indoor market in Erdington, you sort of navigate around stalls full of junk, then there is this really big craft stall selling all the latest products. Needless to say, we browsed around for a couple of hours, before having a bacon butty, it was a really fun day and we have arranged another meet-up next week

All the moaning about the hot weather has worked, it is now at least 20 degrees cooler here, in fact it's freezing cold. Back to the sweaters. Oh, and you will need a brolly too, the English summer rain is back - yesterday it was like a monsoon.
