Lili's Little Fairies - Buttons and Bows

This week's challenge was another of my suggestions so if you absolutely hate it you can blame me!! But really, what's not to like - ribbon and buttons - my craft room is stuffed full of both. Actually, my button jar is also full of dog hair and bits off the floor 'cos my daughter keeps tipping the jar out! lol!!!!

This is going to be one of those vague posts because I made the card a couple of weeks ago and I'm a bit hazy on the detail!!! The backing papers are possibly Forever Friends - aren't they cute and SUCH scrummy colours. I love this LOTV image especially because it doesn't show up my terrible colouring as much as some!! The tag and dragonfly are Magnolia DooHickeys and the doily is the Cheery Lynn French Pastry die. The pins, flowers and ribbon are WOC.

Hope you get a chance to join us this week. We had sooooo many gorgeous entries last week - picking a top 3 was so tough. Thank you for joining in; I get so much inspiration visiting all the amazing blogs. 

I so hope this dizziness gets better soon; still I'm not eating as much so I may be dizzy but I have a smaller bum! Ahhh, my glass is always half full!

Super fairy hugs, Jayne xx

Hi, Hope you are less dizzy. This is lovely!
Sorry to let you all down but I couldn't move when my back went. Luckily my doctor lives two doors away and could help me. I am very relaxed on Diazipan at the moment, which is quite nice.... its less painful and I can now sit down!
I had made my DT card but hadn't photographed it and Mike was working 12 hr day's. Going to try and make a card today.
Hugs Chris x

another super card Jayne. Love the colours.
Hope you are feeling less dizzy though it does seem to have a plus side too. Since the 'flu bug has hit I can't stand the taste of chocolate, coffee or tea. Looks like I might be shrinking a little too! There's always a silver lining!!
