Winter Fairies

Yikes, the christmas countdown on the advent calendar has started and believe it or not I'm still not organised (what's new there ?!) but I'm sure the rest of you are all ready for the annual appearance of the big fat man in his red suit !

I've just finished my granddadughter's card after changing the design countless times and hopefully fairies, tigers and purple will still be her favourite by the time she gets this! I used a couple of Mo Manning digi fairies 'winter fairy Pyry' and winter fairy Talva' which were coloured with Promarkers and given a good helping of Stickles and the tree is a Memory Box die 'swirly tree' as I think it's just perfect for a fairies christmas tree. I found the little tiger image on the internet and just changed the colour of the stripes to purple, and the rest is all from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'spin the wheel with X for guess who!'

Mo's Digital Pencil challenge 'winter with a Mo Manning image'

Memory Box challenge 'holiday cards'

Allsorts challenge 'snowmen and/or snowflakes'

Dream Valley challenge 'christmas'

Simon Says Monday challenge 'let's sparkle'

I've got a twofer for you in the shape of a little meecie filling the stockings ready for christmas morning. The decoupage sheet is from the House Mouse Triple CD Collection.

I shall enter this in

House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge 'anything goes or happy holidays'

Thanks for popping by today, I really appreciate you taking the time to visit and leave a comment especially as I'm sure you are all very busy getting ready for christmas.

Adorable card for your granddaughter. I am sure she will love it. I’m short by at least 20 cards so no slacking for me. Thankyou for coming and spinning the fairy wheel with me this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi, it’s me Little l’th. Mrs A said as punishment for misbehaving I have to come and comment on all the entries as I did offer to help her on the fairy challenge. I miss all my friends at the Elf academy and I was only seeing what all those knobs did. I didn’t know the spring was going to go on the floor and it took me ages to find it again and bung it back in place. Hugs🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧚‍♂️

Hi Andrea, Thanks for dropping by my blog, I hope your daughter and her family are safe from the NSW bushfires, the biggest one near us has now hit 293000 hectares, many small fires are now joining on to it. Two special cards love the one for your little grand-daughter with the tiger on it, so very cute. The house mouse cards always look great too. Have a wonderful week.. Megan

Two pretty cards on your blog post here. I love the cute HouseMouse card but I popped by specifically to thank you for entering Mo's Digital Pencil challenge with these lovely lilac and lavender coloured fairies. You've made such a cute scene with them. We look forward to seeing more of you at our challenges this year. Hope it's a happy one! Hugs, Lesley
