Many of you may remember my excitement about shopping for British Craft Magazines when I was in England last summer. I bought a lovely selection and treasured the fabulous freebies that were inside!
I celebrated my 60th Birthday in March and had a lovely surprise arrive from England. It camewith a delightful card and a lovely trip down Memory Lane as it contained a Britsh Crafting magazine, complete with...yes...you guessed it...a FREEBIE!
This gorgeous little Present Fairy and a plethora of lovely sentiments, were the wonderful freebie gifts!
Well, not so freebie for my friend who spent a fortune to mail it here...but certainly a delight for me to open!
I pinked up a wee surprise for her and made up this card to send back. Hope she enjoys it too! Her favourite colour is purple but I only have one purple copic pen...so had to use my pinks! I stickled the wings with my trusty Star Dust Stickles...I don't know why I buy any of the other shades as it seems this is all I use! I also added a touch of silver Sakura Gelly Roll pen around the outines of the image fpr a little additional sparkle.
I am entering this is Darnell's NBUS challenge as this is the first time the fairy stamp has been inked. I think sending a RAK back to my friend, meets the brief of friendship that Darnell has set for this challenge. This challenge is open till June 27th...pop on over and see the gorgeous cards that have been made so far!
