Lili's Little Fairies - 'Transport'

Hmmm, this one caused quite some (hilarious) discussion at Fairy Towers this week! Hands up; this was my suggestion! I was thinking along the lines of stamps with boats, planes, bikes etc - I was trying to persuade you all to use the fabulous but much under-used boy LOTV stamps!!! However, as the ridiculously hilarious Elise pointed our Fairies (with wings!!!!!!) have their own method of transportation. Who am I to argue? So, go with what takes your fancy. The Land Ahoy stamp is my second favourite LOTV stamp so this week was a no brainer.
I bought these Rusty Pickle papers in a set from Create and Craft and I LOVE them! They're just super fun! The sentiment is cut from one of the sheets and the length of material is from the same kit. The rosette was made using the Tim Holtz decorative strip die and my fab glue gun (any excuse to unleash the glue gun!). For a nice change I finished the card and decorated the inside to match. Oooh, get me, finishing a card! The skull and crossbones is from a set of stamps from Woodware.

Get joining in this week - we have scrummy Ribbon Girl goodies up for grabs! The DT have done some stunning work this week so please visit them if you get a chance.

I'm in the middle of a truly hideous week but I'm hoping somehow things work themselves out. I can't even craft when I'm stressed out! I have, though,  got a huge (and most delicious) apple pie from Asda - life's not all bad.

Thank you for swinging by; I love to hear from you. Fairy hugs, Jayne xx

Fantastic card Jayne and great inspiration too. Those boy cards are always tricky and LOTV really do cover them to perfection. Love all the details, colours - everything!
