Winter Fairy Wishes!!!

Hi Everyone!!

Happy New Year to all of you!!!  I enjoyed some much needed time off with my children over the holiday's and it sure was wonderful.  But all good things must come to an end as they say...so it's back to the grind.  At least colouring is not like working it's all about the fun and relaxation for me.  Now this is a card that so many gals who have visited the store have seen...sorry!  I made this card for my Mom a couple of weeks before Christmas "Just Because"...golly she was so excited when she opened her mailbox and found it.  She took it to her doctor's appointment with her because she just couldn't get over how cool the Flower Soft felt...LOL!!  It took me a while to explain to her how that stuff works...to us it's everyday stuff but to someone who doesn't have a clue about the scrapbooking/cardmaking hobby it's totally awesome.

Okay enough chitter chatter from me...here is Winter Fairy from Whimsy!

I don't get to blog everything I colour there just isn't enough time in the day...boo hoo!  But I love to work with monochromatic colours.  The Basic Grey Collection called "Little Black Dress" is one of my favourite releases from 2011...gosh that seems like it was forever ago LOL...

Here is a list of the stuff I used for this card:

Other Stuff - Bazzil Sandcastle & Bark, Basic Grey "Little Black Dress" Dapper & Dashing, Melissa Francis Lace "Cream", Little Black Dress Button, Whimsy Mini Postage Die, Whimsy Everyday Mini Postage stamps, Flower Soft "Ultra Fine White & Polar White", Jenni Bowlin "Brown Sugar Ink", Spellbinder "#S4-295 Lacey Squares", Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Xpress It Blending Cardstock
