Current Challenges

Well after my card fairies got done playing tricks on me, I finally found my bird. So now I can get on with my challenge's.  I think the Hummingbird is one of God's most beautiful creation's.  I look forward to the spring when they arrive and love to watch them as they feed and play...Of course here in Ohio this is the time of year we see them leaving for warmer climate.  The wing I added as a reminder of the Angels who watch over us, they as well intrigue me so!

The items I used for my project was, Unknown paper's, Lace Hummingbird B194 from Cheery Lynn Designs, Mesh Hearts die B319 also from Cheery Lynn Designs. I love their dies because of the clean cuts. I also used my Butterfly Circle die from Spellbinders, the angel wing was a cut from an embossing folder from Tim Holtz Alterations. And I used watercolor pencils... I am entering my current card in challenges at:
  1. Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges... Anything Goes
  2. House of Cards...Classic and Elegant
  3. Cheery Lynn Designs...Things With Wings
  4. The MoJo Monday ...Sketch Design 311
  5. 613 Avenue Create....#37 Anything Goes w/Optional Twist "Happy Fall Y'All"
  6. Word Art Wednesday Challenge #98 Anything Goes

Here We Go Again

Here I go again. Those durn fairies are at it again!  I worked so hard to color this bird for a challenge, and somehow the bird flew away.  I know it's the fairies playing their little tricks on me, but I was really making progress and went for my bird to apply it, and it just disappeared. I told the fairies I was tired, sang to them and told them "I give" but it didn't do the trick this time. I searched everywhere I thought possible, so I told them I will be back tomorrow, I sure don't want to have to redo the bird.  Hopefully if the fairies return her tonight I will have a new challenge in tomorrow.  Hugs...Patti

Card Fairies?

Ok, I seriously think there just may be card fairies, you think so?  I so love to go to my card nook and play but, I think these little fairies play games on me. Take for instance, today I used some Tim Holtz distressed ink pad, and after I was done, I went to put the lid back on. Do you think I could find that lid?  I wasted 20 minutes LOOKING for the lid.  Yes, I got fed up and I said "I dont think this is funny anymore, I need the LID, I give up." I was ready to put it in a baggy...
 So I then looked under my chair, THERE was the lid. After 20 minutes, yes 20 minutes, they finally gave in. I bet those ornery card fairies have been to see YOU too, and you never realized it was them. So NEXT time, just tell then you give up, and you too will find what your looking for...Those silly guys... I believe, I really BELIEVE...
