Fairy steps

Oh I love this beautiful fairy from Lavinia Stamps. And I love the mushrooms too, or are they toadstools? Whatever, they are magical. I added some glitter to the fairy wings just to give a bit of sparkle. She's tiptoeing off the page somewhat because the original picture was bigger, but I had to crop it due to many mistakes around the edges!

I am all excited because my ticket to Papercrafts@Taunton arrived yesterday. Woo hoo, we are having a craft show in Taunton at The Castle School Sports Hall on Sunday 16th May and I can't wait. Ok it isn't a big show but at least it's something. I used to love the ones they have at Alexander Palace when I used to live in London. And I'd like to go to the big ones they have at the NEC in Birmingham. And I would really LOVE to go to the CHA in California - maybe one day I will, who knows? There will be demonstrations and lots of goodies to buy so it should be a fun event.

I still haven't found my box of rubber stamps. I'm still searching but I'm running out of places where they could be. I thought they were in a yellow box but maybe I'm wrong. Which reminds me of that Chinese Proverb

Never look for a black cat in the dark
Especially if it's not there...

Ha, gotta love that!

Have a great weekend living life in excess!

Love this whimsical card! I think you trimmed off the right amount and your "mistake" was meant to be! Hope you find your box of stamps!
