Spring Fairies

Hello everyone!! I wanted to share a card that I made yesterday and some news.

First on to the card:

I cut the quatrefoil lattice on my Cricut. I downloaded this cut file from Bird's cards a long time ago and was waiting for a chance to use it. I stamped the Fairy Friends from Lili of the Valley on white card stock and colored it with Yasutomo water colors. I love the shimmer of these water colors!

I hope you can see the shimmer on this picture. I made the calla lilies with foam. I followed the tutorial by Dr. Sonia. I've been wanting to try this flower since the time I saw this tutorial. I finally got some foam that I could use for this. For the flower center, I rolled a thin strip if paper and colored it with Hero Arts Lemon Yellow. I cut some green handmade paper for leaves.

Onto the news now. We are expecting our second child in Aug. So you might not see me posting very often. Also, we are moving. My husband got a job in Kansas and we're travelling this weekend. So I might not be able to visit your blogs in the next week.

Also, as most of you might already know, Dr. Sonia is celebrating 5 million page views of her blog. I'm sure most of you, like me, enjoy her tutorials and posts. Let's help her celebrate it in style! I'm submitting this card to her celebration. If you have never been to her blog, stop by her blog here and check out her beautiful creations and easy-to-follow tutorials on many topics.

Thanks for stopping by. Thank you so much for your comments.

Hi Berina! How lovely to meet you! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6 two times with your lovely creations! I think you have amazing talent! Thank you, too, for following me! It is a pleasure to follow you in return! Please forgive me for taking so long to come by and thank you and meet you. I've had some medical upsets which have limited my time on the computer. Congratulations on the new baby and the move! I wish you every happiness!! Hugs, Darnell
