Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Anything Goes!

Gosh, it's that time of the week already! How time flies. This week it's Anything Goes and I hope that we can persuade you to try something a bit different! The sponsors this week are those lovelies at Wild Orchid Crafts. My mojo has seriously gone walkabout (I'm blaming this never ending bug) so I was a bit stuck this week. I remembered seeing this tutorial at Wiccababe on a walk through blogland so I thought I might as well give it a whirl. Apparently it's a Finnish Star!

I wasn't sure whether you'd all think it was a bit bonkers but I kinda like it - it's a bit quirky. You make two four pointed stars and join them together - I was fine until I got to the joining bit and then I was practically wrestling with the blooming thing!! The scrummy paper is Kissing Booth from Basic Grey and a real steal at 35p from my local craft shop! The leaves are from the Martha Stewart punch and the flowers are from WOC. I've just bought some lilac gardenias from WOC and think I'm in love. LOL! I made a card just so I could use one - how tragic am i?
I love this image; it's one of my favourites.
I've done next to no crafting this week as it's half term. We took my daughter to Hobbycraft today to meet Mister Maker from Cbeebies. We were in a really long queue and had to wait an hour and a half which is like a lifetime for a 4 year old! Mister Maker was absolutely lovely though - worth the wait. I have a lovely photo of my daughter with him - I'll try and add it tomorrow. She was sooo thrilled!! Isn't it great when you get it right!
Rizzoli and Isles tonight - yeah! Looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations, big hugs Jayne xx.

PS Thank you for all your lovely comments; they really make my day! xx

I'm entering the 'card' into the Wild Orchid Crafts 'Love Is' challenge - the candy looks scrummy!!!!Also into Joanna Sheen's Challenge 'Love is in the Air'.
