Toadstool Fairy

Hi everyone,
A very short post tonight.
 
I just had to post this gorgeous fairy stamp, that I bought at
Sandown Craft Fair.
She is from The House of Zandra, called Toadstool Girl 4. 
 
I think she is beautiful and loved colouring her with Distress Inks.
 
 
The backing paper, was just a piece of copy paper, embossed and then
inked around the edges with DI.
I still cannot remember to choose papers first and then colour image!!
So I had no choice but to use the same ink, to match her dress and wings.
 
The sentiment and butterfly, were cut from funky foam.
I had a sort out of some drawers and found one was full with foam! Why?!!!
 
Most of it I gave to the Grandchildren.
 
 
Well that's it for tonight.
Oh, I must tell you. I went to the hairdressers today. So what you say!
It was the first time for over 20 years!
I was so scared, because, being a hairdresser myself,
I know what some of them can do!!
It was ok though. It will probably be another 20 years before I go again.
Maybe sooner. 
If I can no longer get my arms around the back of my head,
with my scissors in hand, I will have to go again!
 
Right, back to my desk and finish my clock.
 
Thanks for popping in and a very BIG thank you for all your
wonderful messages.
Hugs,
Carolxx
