Make a wish

Firstly, I must thank all of you, for the lovely
messages that you left me, here and on FB, regarding
the loss of my lovely friend Alison.
It still feels surreal and I am waiting for her to call me!

I am trying to make some small things for my next
Craft Fayre, which is on Saturday 24th June. 
It's a combination of Farmers Market and Village Fayre
at Flegg High School at Martham.

This card is using one of Lili of the Valley's new 
release stamps.
She is called 'I Believe in Fairies'

I do, as I have them in my Craft Room.
I put something down and they either move it away
from where I put it, or they make it disappear!! 

I coloured her with Distress Inks.


A touch of Stickles of course!


This flower is a plant called Cistus, in my garden.
One of my favourite plants but never had such a big flowers.
They look like screwed up tissue.


We have friends coming up at the weekend.
The weather is supposed to be dry and sunny.

I could just do with a bit less wind!!....Not me!!
The wind has been rather strong and damaged 
some of my plants.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind messages you
leave me. 
You are all so kind.

Big hugs,
Carol

A beautiful card Carol and great colouring. I've had damage in the garden too, which is really annoying when summer pots etc haven't been there that long. Hopefully they'll pick up again. Good luck with your craft fayre xx
