Fairy for cute card thursday

Over on Cute Card Thursday blog the challenge is FAIRIES, so I had to give my little Lily of the Valley fairy another outing


Papers - WeR Memory Keepers
Raffia lace - Paper Cellar UK
Labels 1 dies - Spellbinders nesties
sentiment oval - Craftwork Cards
and oops, sorry, forgot to make a note of the copic numbers
I have been so busy this week, the decorator has finished the kitchen and moved into the master bedroom now - well, not literally, but you know what I mean............and of course, a shiny clean kitchen meant that all the cupboards and drawers needed a good spring clean as well, good heavens, I found tins and packets in there almost as old as my kids. What did I think I was going to do with polenta? Did a recipe once call for sour dried cherries? What possessed me to buy FIVE jars of papaya balls? Amazing how much more room you have when you chuck out all the rubbish. So if anybody has a blog award for housewife of the week, I will happily receive it

Your food sounds very exciting Enfys though wouldn't have a clue what to do with any of those items lol. We need to see that kitchen now all shiny and bright lol. Love your card, just got my first 3 lili of the valley stamps and mad i didn't get this one!

Carol said...

Awww, this card is so very sweet. That stamp is total cuteness and the coloring is fantastic. (love the blues and greens together, it's one of my fav. color combos.) BTW, now that you have your kitchen cupboards and drawers all cleaned out and in good order, would you come and clean out mine too? I fear there could be many evil (or at least "questionable") things lurking in the dark recesses of every nook and cranny. A major Spring cleaning is definitely in order!!! ;)
Hugz,
♥Carol♥

Kim Piggott said...

Lisa said...

Love this card!!! She is such a cute little fairy. I am totally intrigued by the raffia lace, I haven't seen this product, it is sooo cool! It really adds to the card!!

Hope all is well with you Enfys!!

Take care,
Lisa

Hi Enfys, wow a gorgeous green, I love it, and youve coloured your image so beautifull. Well done with love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Jessica said...

What an adorable little fairy! And a lovely card.
Later when you have time, I'd like to see pix of your pretty kitchen!
Ok,now... down on one knee......
Drum roll please...dum da da dum... I award you, Lady Enfys, the good housewifing award for the year 2010! (Don't worry about keeping up throughout the year though. Once you've got it you get to keep it.) LOL :)) Hope you have a lovely day!

Jessica said...

Hey Enfys, I have two questions... answer when you have more time. I'm curious what you use to attach your card candy to a surface? Also can you tell me anything about Nelly Snellin dies? I've only seen a couple of places where they only have 3 or 4 of them. Have you used any? They are much less expensive than nesties, even with the shipping from there to here! Are they as good as nesties? Ok, I'm off to do some house work... well maybe....take care!

Lean said...

lisa said...

These stamps are just adorable. They will definitely be finding their way into my craft stash shortly, although I may loose them to my little helper!!!!
Your card is gorgeous, En. A touch of spring on another dismal day.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who buys wierd and wonderful things and then discovers them at the back of the cupboard years later!!

Your fairy is very adorable! I just laughed and laughed when you told us about your spring cleaning. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one wondering what the heck I bought polenta for (it's probably some Food Network chef's fault). Thanks, Pam
