Fairy Dust Magic!!

Happy TGFRIDAY....and phewwww what a long week...I am so glad to see it come to an end I must say.  Its been crazy busy for me and the world...sigh...the US is suffering right now that's for sure this week.  Thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected or hurt in Boston and in Texas...and let's not forget the horrible flooding & sinkholes that are occurring in the Chicago area too.  So sad and many lives changed forever...I pray for peace for them.  And then our area high school had a bomb threat yesterday...just not good...and if you follow me on FB you know why I'm just a tad outraged.  I won't go into it here but let's just say the school and school board are hearing from this gal today...and they ain't gonna like what I gotta say...and I say too darn bad!

So I'm looking forward to a hopefully "non-eventful" weekend of finishing the garden and getting some chores done.  We have mulch on order and have picked out 2 trees to be planted so lots to do still this spring.  And at some point I gotta get my bum to the mall to get some prezzies for my daughter's 17th birthday on Thursday....egads...I'm BEHIND!  And then my birthday is a week later...let's just say I will be 39 this year (for realzers)...and next year, and the next & the next ;)  Got it?  I already sent hubby my wish for my birthday...we shall see if he agrees LOL!  So I hope you all are blessed this weekend with peace and fun and laughter and rest!!

***NOTE:  My Little Darlings Guest Post is below this post today if you want to take a peek at my fun project there.  I will be re-posting it on Sunday as well!  Thanks!**


SCACD Release Today!

Today SCACD is introducing the Fairy Dust Collection!!! These are 6 sweet and sassy Fairys that just make you smile and brighten the day :D  Elisabeth Bell sprinkled just the right amount of cute, charm and gorgeous on to these special little fairys. These are stamps for right now but also classics to use years from now :D

So today is release day at SCACD and we are introducing these beautifully cute stamps by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called "The Fairy Dust Collection".  They are soooo cute you will want all 6 trust me!  I'm using "Me & My Shadow" and isn't she sweet with her lil' snail friend?  So the DT is having a fun Blog Hop today to showcase them all...make sure to hop around to see them!  If you didn't come here from Sandie Dunne's blog then hop to the beginning at Kathi's blog here.  I'm the last stop on the hop today!!!

I used papers by Carta Bella "So Noted"...I kept the scheme to white and aquas for a soft look.  The background white cs was embossed with a fabulous folder by Couture Creations (these are bigger folders and them emboss 'em)...I love the look of white cs embossed, so elegant.  The branch elements at each corner and then under the flowers are a new SCACD Die "Breezy Branches Statement Die"...I LOVE to cut my die cuts apart and use them in different ways, makes them more versatile!  The sentiment is from PTI, flowers a mix and pearls to finish it off.

I'm entering her into the following challenges:

Isn't she a doll?  She's colored with TouchTwin Markers and then I gave that mushroom cap a nice thick coat of Diamond Glaze along with the snail.  Why do I pick Judikins Diamond Glaze out of all the glazes out there?  Well to me its nice & thick and wherever I put it...IT doesn't leak around and is easy to it!  Then I added some Stickles to her wings and the snail...they needed sparkle KWIM!! LOL!

**These can be bought at Quixotic Paperie for overseas customers as well! **

That's it for me today...I'm the last on the Hop...have a great weekend!
