Butterflies and Fairies over at Lili's Little Fairies!

Sorry I've been unusually quiet this week! My BFF is in a lot of pain and can't do very much. The only thing that takes her mind off the pain is coming and lying on my sofa and having a chat!!! In short, I've got absolutely nothing done at all this week!

Yesterday afternoon I went to see my little girl in her Mother's Day assembly; ahhh I wish you could have seen her! She just beamed through the whole thing, waved at me and blew kisses! She knew all the songs and all the actions and was just totally fabulous! Generally, she's a 4 year old horror but yesterday my heart felt like bursting for all the right reasons!! I didn't cry but it was a close run thing!

Okay. on to the important stuff. This week it's butterflies and fairies over at Lili's Little Fairies. I sooo loved this challenge and enjoyed making the card more than anything else I've done in ages! The image is my new 'Positively Pampered' stamp from LOTV. I LOVE it! Elise used it a few weeks ago and wrote a really thought provoking post on how, when we look in the mirror, we should feel perfect. It's buzzed around my head ever since. It's made me wonder whether we all need to give ourselves a break once in a while and be as kind to ourselves as we are to others? Just a thought!

I coloured the image with copics and distressed just about everything I got my hands on with walnut stain distress ink. The totally gorgeous papers are from the Meadow Lark pack from Prima. The topper is cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Three. The flowers, ribbon, lace and cheesecloth are from WOC. The large butterfly is a Magnolia Doohickey die cut.

I may not be posting much this week. The copy of 'Breaking Dawn' I ordered from Amazon came today!! Yippee yie Yay! I'm going to get a huge sticky bun from the bakery tomorrow, get a vast cup of tea, and watch my DVD till my eyes are square!

Hope you get to join in the challenge this week. Last weeks entries were awesome and I so love visiting your blogs. Check out my teamies blogs for their cards - simply stunning this week. Thank you for visiting my blog I really love to read your comments!

I'm off to the Harrogate Papercraft Extravaganza this weekend. I will spend too much money and then be grumpy that I can't afford the Holtz distress markers! I have no discipline. Let's not even mention the diet!!

Big hugs, have a super week, Jayne xxx
