I Believe

Do you believe in fairies?   I do !   The other day as I was walking down my driveway,  I spotted a fairy taking his morning break from fairying.     This is for real!!   My husband took this picture.  

You can tell by the look on his face that he sure was happy to see me.  Now it just so happens that Christina and Danielle have challenged us to make a fairy card this week.  I could not help but laugh seeing that I have so many fairies as friends.  

And may all your fairy wishes come true!!!

Please visit the blogs of my talented friends as they give you FAIRYTOPIA challenge # 45.



This card will be entered into the following challenges: 

Bearly Mine Challenge 17 - Bring on the Bling
Shopping our Stash SOS Challenge 13 - What you just can't resist buying.  (I love fairy stamps and images)
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - use 3 or more of favorite embellishments
Paper Play Time Challenge # 53 - anything goes

Stamp Insanity - anything goes

Thanks for visiting me and I really do appreciate your comments!  Sandy

Love this one Sandy! I believe in fairies, too! The inside where you turned the mo's image into a snow globe is brilliant, I may try that (I bought the same image). Such a great and whimsical card! Good to see you back crafting, too!

Look at all that sparkly designing! What an adorable fairy creation Sandy! (I have all this holly stuff too - I see we share the holly addiction along w/the stamp/punch/die addiction) hehe Love how you colored these fairies up for the season!

Rene said...

Well I don't know which is cuter...your outdoor fairy or your delightful card! I don't know...I'm pretty crazy about mushrooms (for some strange reason...maybe it's because of the Smurfs? That was my favorite cartoon growing up!) so I'm going to go with the card! It's just lovely!
Rene ;D

This is simply beautiful and almost incites me to believe in faeries:) You chose two of my favorite images: Emerald Faeries and Mo Manning:) The Chrismas holly borders and papers are the perfect match; love the magic it conveys.
Great job, sweets, have a happy weekend!

So sweet and the little Fairy looks so content :)

Cami said...

Do I believe in fairies? Of course I do! Without them, there would be no magic in this world! Your fairy card is so pretty, Sandy. Love the traditional Christmas colors and this DP. You've colored her beautifully and reminds me I need to get started on my Christmas cards! Do you have a fairy garden? Hubby and I have been thinking of putting a fairy garden in front of our house. We saw a nice one at a Marriott hotel in San Francisco.
Hugs, Cami
