Daydreamer fairy

Hi there, don't you just hate your computer when it is not playing ball - and what I have I done to it, nothing, it just is refusing to do what it is told ..... perhaps if I told it I was going to buy a new one it may speed up?! na doubt it to, but it is just so frustraiting.

Anyway, hope you all have had a good Thursday, my days are all to pot again, I keep thinking it is Friday! Luckily I don't work on either Thursday or Friday so it isn't too bad.

Today I thought I'd try and do something for the teachers at the end of year in Emma's nursery. They always get flowers and chocolates so I thought I'd get crafty and make something - here it is ,.... a four drawer box. I have put scented candles in - the "flavour" is calming camomile?! - isn't that just what they need after the year of having 3 to 4 year olds on a learning curve?!!!! Just got another 3 to make.

Here is a close up of the image. I haven't used this fairy for ages, I don't know why as she is just so gorgeous.

Coloured with Promarkers, chalked cloud background, flowersoft for the seeds, and stickles for the highlights.

My friend Sue gave me some doilies she didn't want - she got them from a local supermarket (guess what I am buying next time i'm in there")

Girls just wanna have fun

Hello there,
It seems an absolute age since I last had a dabble on blogger, so I hope you are all happy and well.
My life seems to be like a bus, nothing for ages and then three things all at once 1. A holiday in Spain - whoo hoo get me eh? - it was a family visit that was well over due 2. A birthday present to a Take That concert and 3. A Charity Las Vagas Night (no I didn't win anything on the gambling tables just lost the chips I was given - I might just get used to the going out malarki lol.
Anyways, I had to have a little dabble making a card as I was getting slight withdrawal symptoms from my craft room - here is my latest card... party on girls.....
