Hooray, hooray, it's nearly my birthday!

Okay, so at my age I really should be over the whole getting giddy over a birthday thing. But, I'm so not!!! My birthday is tomorrow and I am as giddy as a kipper!! I will try to contain my excitement (I'm getting some craft vouchers - super yippee!)

I've had this gorgeous fairy download for months but had a real fear over colouring her - she's so lovely I didn't want to make a real pig's ear of it! The fairy is Moon Glow and I bought her from Crafts and Me.

I've coloured her with copics and distressed the edges with chipped saphire and tumbled glass distress inks. The papers are 'Annabelle's Meadow' from Wild Rose Studio - they are just so scrummy. The die is the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die from Sizzix. The blue felt butterfly is part of the Henbury Lane collection from Papermania. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon and tiny bit of lace are from my stash. I couldn't bare to throw that bit of lace away and was much cheered by the fact it fitted perfectly in that corner!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - Birthdays
Wild Orchid Crafts - Anything Goes
My Mums Craft Shop - Fairytales
Crafty Catz - Happy Birthday

Hugs to all, Jayne xx
