It's Thursday already! Yes!

I love looking forward to the weekends. Time to do what I want to do; time to relax. (And for those mundane things like laundry and cleaning but I was trying to forget about them!)

I have been neglecting my fairies I recently got from The Greeting Farm, so I put one of them to good use today.

I will be the first to admit that my sewing on this card isn't the prettiest. I'm still getting used to my sewing machine and the setting for stitching on paper. I'll have to get some more needles before I can practice again because I broke my last two trying to mend DD's snowpants last night! I apologise for the strange colors in the photo - my camera was acting up that day.

The layout for this card is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, MOJO78. I think it shows off Chloe the Fairy pretty well. I found this paper at my local LLS this past weekend. It has a shabby chic feel to it which I love.

I have a very simple Whipper Snapper card to show you tomorrow; something a little 'outside the box' for me. Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh Sandra...you crack me up...your stitching looks fab...I'm always in awe with people that use the straight stitch..I always use the zig zag because it is more forgiving for me...lol. I always love your cards...your coloring is divine! Super sweet fairy...

Such a very sweet card! I love the lacy punched layers and the little fairy is so cute! I am in search of my sewing machine for traditional purposes, but I think I need to stitch up some cards too! I've never done that yet! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me!
