It was my turn to choose and image for Choccy and myself to use and as we were deep with snow at the time I was yearning for Spring and chose the beautiful Spring Fairy from Ike’s Art. I just love the simplicity of the image and it just shouts joy to me J

I printed it out 4” square and the flowers are still very small so I was particularly happy to have fine nibs on my Promarker colours I can tell you. I love the little garlands of blooms, it very much reminded me of making long daisy chains as a child. The image is matted onto some paper from Craftwork Cards Sugar Plum Blooms pad.

The card bank is a sheet of glossy pink cardstock. I used the sketch at The Critter Challenge for the layout. The floral paper has a very subtle glitter on each bloom. The green swirly paper has been distressed with an ink pad to provide a little contrast. The 3 flowers are from the CC pad, with black gems centres and some rub on lettering for the sentiment.

I love this image too Mandy, there is something really special about it. I would say it makes me want Spring to hurry up and come but I live in Saudi so it is pretty much spring and summer here all year round with lots and lots and even more sand . Thank you for joining my blog and - do I call you 'sister' now . Looking forward to working with you one day. Hugs Jane xx
