Do You Believe in Fairies - Of Course!!

Hi All,
No crafting all week due to a nasty cold, and then Mr. Mojo went missing - probably because I couldn't really be bothered to find him!!  Fortunately for me he came back last night and I finished a card I liked (won't tell you that I actually binned some yesterday afternoon  - usually....I do try to re-hash, but not yesterday).

This card is for the challenge over at Try It On Tuesdays - Do you Believe in Fairies. I have a couple of fairy stamps and I initially played with them - and when I gave up looking for Mr. 'M' I decided to tidy, so pleased I did because I had forgotten about this Lavinia Fairy - and yes I do believe in fairies because this little lady worked her magic for me.
I used a Marianne Die for the card base and Nesties circles for the rest.  The sentiment is from Inkylicious.  The Moon and her wings are coloured with H2Os, before adding Glamour dust and a couple of gems - fairies have to have sparkle!

I am also entering this card:
  Raise the Bar - Circles
  MAWTT - Things with Wings
  Creative Belli - Fancy Frames
  Sir Stampalot - Monochromatic
  The Craft Garden - Monochromatic

That's it for now, need to see if Mr. 'M' is still here.

Avril xx

Love it, welcome back Mrs. Mojo. The circle makes her look so comfy. I nearly bought her on Sunday, now wish I had. Hugs Caz


Hi Avril, This is one of my favourite Lavinia stamps - I love fairies and I love this type of round easel card, so it ticks all the boxes for me!
Thanks for popping back to leave a comment - I had several e-mails, suggesting I should change from an embedded comment box to the Pop-Up one because some bloggers were unable to leave comments. Anyway, it seems to have worked!!
Hugs, Sylvia xx
