Midsummer's night!.....a bit early!

Hi there friends.

Hope you are all managing to stay warm and safe in this cold, and I know that a lot of you like me are not 100% at present........but hey we will get there, Spring is round the corner......January almost gone!! along with most of our snow (which wasn't that much to be honest) and the Easter eggs are in the shops!...........and if all that doesn't spur you on... then as my Grandma used to say ' I am getting a little better each day'............she lived to 96!

So crafty wise a card using an image I coloured last summer (do you remember it? the summer that is?) I believe I was sat outside at the time, in the warm(even hot) sunshine...mmm sounds good!

and a close up

No clever techniques here, just colouring with copics, so I have listed what I have used at the end of the post to save a lot of boring reading. It's pretty self-explanatory anyway.I added lots of glitter to her wings and the stars but it doesn't show so well on the photos.

Image............................LOTV Midsummers Night
Spellbinder dies............labels 17, less papillons, teardrop circles
Marianne dies................leafy swirl
Greeting........................Craftwork Cards

Do hope you all have something nice lined up to do this weekend.Nothing special planned here.
Thank you for stopping by and take care my friends.
Love and crafty hugs

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

    Big Hugs,

  3. Flying visit Carole - not better sadly. Lovely image and a beautiful card. x

  4. Onr of my fave LOTV fairies. Love the colours and a gorgeous card. Have a lovely weekend. I am going to a Craft Fair at Sandown Park Racecourse with a couple of friends. Usually about 30+ shops, so should be ok. Will probably buy things i don't really need! Hugs, Carol S.xx

  5. This is so sweet, totally adorable! I just love looking at all the details. It's stunning!

  6. Hello, Carole! We just arrived at my mom's about an hour ago (sooo wonderful to be back with her for the weekend), and after writing a quick post for a card I made yesterday (it's goofy!), I 'needed' to visit you...and how thrilled I am that I've done so. Your fairy is simply, completely, totally and absolutely stunning! I mean STUNNING and soooo magical! The image, your colouring, the butterfly (swoon-inducing), the's a feast for the eyes and a delight for the heart! WOW! Hope you're getting 'a little better' every day, my friend!

  7. Hi Carole, just home from work, having a nice cup of tea, so hopped on my computer and am having a quick browse before tea time!... Fabulous card and your colouring is great!! love how you have put the shadow around, always scared of that bit in case I make a mistake and have to start again lol!!
    So pleased to hear you are on the mend:)..
    Love and Hugs,
