Time Flies!

Hi everyone,
 
Not a good day yesterday. It was the anniversary of losing my Dad, many years ago and also my sister, that passed away 3 years ago on the same date. I can't believe that it's 3 years. Time really does fly.
 
Thank you for all your lovely messages about my fall. My blogging buddies are so kind. I still have my wrist strapped in a support but at least the bruise is going a bit now. It's at the yellow and purple stage. Not the colours I would put together on a card! My body is also telling me that it has been bounced on bricks, as it aches all down my left side. Gosh I feel like a ninety year old!
 
I have a market to do on Saturday. Should be interesting!!
 
This card is using one of the latest fairies from Lili of the Valley, Time Flies. She is so pretty and lovely to colour. The sentiment stamp is also LOTV. It came free with a paper pad, with a magazine.
 
The background paper is from a 12" x 12" paper pad, from Forever Friends, that my lovely friend Sue bought me. There are some gorgeous papers in it and double sided too. The sort you stroke then close the pad!  
 

I used my usual Distress Inks to colour the image with. I also ran a DI pen around the die cut and then added some Stickles Star Dust on the edge. Stickles are also on her wings, Dandelion clock and clothes.
 
Kept this one simple but still find that hard to do. Sitting on your hands helps! A bit! I think!
 
 
Thank you for popping into my blog and your lovely comments. I will return the visit to your blog.
