Fairies Do Exist!




Another gorgeous day, although a little bird told me that we could be in for some of that white stuff.. SN**, but if we don't actually say the word, then it might not happen~
I have had a day of jobs today so, not done any crafting until tonight.
The post lady, well lad actually, brought me and my friend Angie (Hi Ang!) the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine "A midsummer nights dream" ~~ OMG, am I allowed to say that? It is so lovely, well I did not really expect it to be anything else with Tilda centre stage!

Back to my crafting tonight ~~ I have wanted to use the Lili of the Valley toppers I bought a few weeks ago and found the perfect challenge to enter it in...The Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge, perfect.

Also Paper Cutz Challenge:

I saw a tutorial on how to make this "pocket card" on a lovely blog, details here:

http://whiffofjoy.blogspot.com/2010/04/criss-cross-pocket-card-tutorial-by.html

It is lovely and so different. At first I thought, Oh this is going to be complicated, all that measuring, you know me and measuring!!
But it turns out it's easy peasy, give it a go.
I made the Pocket Card first, then measured the little card to slip inside it~
I was looking at it thinking "wouldn't it make a great Wedding Invitation if it was made in white and silver?

OH NEARLY 4 GOT..... The bit on the card that looks like a a doily is done with my MS corner punch and a circle of card, another tutorial from the same blog as above...absolutly genius.
