Hi There!
I hope my post finds you all well.  We escaped the predicted snowfall here on the East Coast for now but the winds are strong out there so I think something is blowing in!!  On to my card - I love this image called "Fairy Tales" from Crafts and Me.  I was very fortunate to grow up with my mother reading us many fairy tales and I loved them all.  I have always been drawn to the fairy world so this was an easy-peasy card for me to create.  I had fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I love reading all your comments - thanks for taking the time to tell me your thoughts on my cards.  It is always appreciated even if I don't get back to you as often as I would love to.  One day I hope to retire and do this full time - just make cards, blog with you all day and never get out of my PJ's!!  A girl can dream - like fairy tales ;)
Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge - #133 Fairy Tales/Fantasy

CLP Challenge Sketch #56 - I get such inspiration from this website - their sketches are just beautiful - you have to visit them if you have not already!

Crafts and Me #123 - Tag It - Now I hope I am not stretching this but I put in the little "tag" as a sign for which way to Fairyland!  Just had to show someone at Crafts and Me that I used their image!

Card Recipe
Digi Image - Fairy Tales colored with copic markers and used stardust and liquid pearls here and there!  What are fairies without sparkle! The great paper is from Recollections called Habitat.  My lace trim is from Ribbon Girl, the flower and corner filigree from WOC, tag is from Crafty Secrets stamp set called Fairyland!  I fussy cut the mushrooms from the DP which I was fighting with myself not to do since this paper is just beautiful but it added to the scene nicely, I think.
