Wee Flower Fairies Bring Love

Hello Dear Readers,

I hope this post finds you getting in the mood for love! Valentine's Day is quickly approaching! I need to get busy and make my husband's card! If I start today, I just might get it done in time! Are you a slow card maker? I am! I'm not talking hours, I'm talking DAYS! LOL.

Before I forget, I have some RED hot news! Magnolia-licious is having a super Valentine's special! Purchase any stamp or die with the word HEART in it and receive an additional 15% discount! Can you believe that? Then, to sweeten the pot even more, any Wild Rose Studio stamp is 30% off this week! The sale ends on 2/14 and discounts show up as store credit! What a great time to get yourself a little Valentine's gift!

Today, I have a delightful card to share with you! It's "W-Wednesday" at Magnolia-licious! I just love these sweet stamps. Today, I have chosen one of the flower fairies from the Wee Flower Fairies stamp set. I love how Sylvia Zet designed her hair. I'm terrible and very inconsistent with hair coloring. Hair styles such as this one are easy for me and generally look pretty good when I'm done with them. I think I do better when the hair has few details, LOL.

Here is my card:

Isn't she adorable? I love the sweetness of her! See what I mean about her hair? Easy peasy to do. You can pick out the highlights and lowlights so easily. I chose to make my card circular. I am very fond of that shape with cards. I used three different paper designs from the Maja Sofiero Collection. It is one of my very favorite lines of paper. You can find it at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I used Nestie dies for my die cuts. There is machine stitching on all panels, inside and out. I used Fran-Tage in Shabby Antique Pink along with some chalking to shade the circle. The lace heart is also a treasure from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Now for a steal of a deal! Diana, at Magnolia-licious, is having a 25% off sale of ALL Candibean Stamps this week! What a great time to take advantage of these fantastic prices! Check them out!

Well, That's about it for me! Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you will come back again! Please become a follower of my blog, if you aren't already. Also, you can follow me on Facebook under Chrissy Christensen! We can be f-r-i-e-n-d-s! LOL ((hugs to all))

Have a great week!

Holy sweetness Chris, this is just the cutest thing I've ever seen !!! She is truly adorable & I think you should just give her to your husband for his Valentine. I can relate to it taking days to make a card. I so envy people who can make a card in a few hours & seem to be able to post one every day. I actually have had this same image colored for a month or more & still she sits waiting to be turned into a card. You are an inspiration !!! Love the hair, your coloring & those amazing dies.
Hugs, Janie
