Autumn Fairy

Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying the weekend. I'm just popping by with a card I made using LOTV 'cobweb fairy' - I reckon this stamp would be perfect for any time of year but also for halloween with the spider and cobweb. I decided to go for autumn colours using Promarkers and chalks for the background (although you can't see from the photo). I used some leftover spotty paper and a snippet of orange card, then added a couple of sunflowers and gems from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'anything goes'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'warm autumn colours'
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'autumn colours'
Addicted to Stamps challenge 'anything goes'
Frosted Designs challenge 'fall colours, ink and bling'
Crafty Little Fairies challenge 'only 1 DP' (2nd entry)
That's Crafty challenge 'keep it simple' (2nd entry)

I am being rather a bad blogger and not returning your visits as I should but my energy levels are just about zero at the moment. I've been prescribed some more tablets and have a couple of hospital appointments for tests coming up so fingers crossed I start feeling human again soon!! In the meantime I'd like to say a big thank you for your continued visits and lovely comments which are really appreciated.

You really are going through it still Andrea, it must really be getting you down with it dragging on so long. Fell better soon and fingers crossed the tests go OK.

Cute name for the fairy and so prettily coloured, thank so much for joining in at Stamping Sensations again this month.

What an adorable little cobweb fairy! Lovely coloring and the way you have offset your image layer makes her look like she is wobbly on the cobweb. Cute cute cute! Thanks for playing along at ATSM. :)
