Playing with the Fairies!

Good day to all my friends and family. . . It has been a little warm but a lot rainy here in Michigan this week.  Just as soon as my socks dry out, that grill is getting fired up!   I've been wanting grilled chicken for weeks, and I'm not the most patient person on the planet!
On to this Brand New really mystical and dainty image.  It was so much fun and as soon as I saw it, my gears started crankin!  It reminds me of that story where the elves come in at night and get all the work done for the shoe maker.  I think it was by the Brothers Grimm?  Anyway,  I need to get a sewing fairy, or two,  of my own for all those dresses my daughter wants me to fix the zipper on!  lol

  9. This looks like my very first sewing machine - only I did not have little fairies helping me!!!!! At least not ones that looked like that!! I love the way you have used the buttons and the spools of thread - very clever.

  20. Hi Tammy,
    This is such a cool card. One can tell a whole lot of work has gone into it; sewing all those buttons on! To answer your question, I don't use any Copic marker for cheeks (used to use R20); I've switched over to chalk. Hope this helps.

    Have a great Sunday!
