Cute Fairy - DigiStamp Boutique DT

I've used one of the very cute new fairies from DigiStamp Boutique for today's card - I love that she's walking a ladybird :o)



Items Used
Digi stamp from the Cute Fairy Collection - DigiStamp Boutique
Coloured with promarkers & flexmarkers (dress is paper pieced)
Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen papers - MCH
Twill ribbon - Fantastic Ribbons
Memory Box Cherry Blossom die - MCH
Memory Box Macarena Corner die - MCH
Sentiment from 'Sentiment Tags' set - LOTV
Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch - MCH
Viva Decor Pearl Pen 'ice white' - MCH
Meiflower blossom sequin 'baby pink' (in her hair) - MCH
Glamour Dust in 'crystal'
Pearls, silver spacer & large chipboard flower from my stash
The chipboard flower was plain - I coloured it black and then coated it in 'spray & sparkle'

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Sketch Saturday - sketch (I rotated it & changed a few bits - hope that's ok!)
Fairy Tale Challenge - something metal (silver spacer)
The Squirrel & The Fox - anything goes
Pile It On - patterned paper
No Matter Which - die cuts/ punches
Joanna Sheen Challenge - going dotty
DYSU - birthdays

I'm a bit miffed that the ink from the new printer seems to smudge slightly :o(  Just hoping that when we change the ink for compatibles I won't have that problem - fingers crossed!

Today was Dex's first morning at school!  He only goes for a few hours each morning this week, then next week he'll be there full days.  I had a bit of a wobble when he was all dressed in his uniform - he just looks so teeny and cute, and very proud of himself!  He went into the classroom quite happily and he was still smiling when I picked him up :o)  I'd show you a photo, but hubby was in charge of the camera this morning and the pics aren't the best lol... I'll try and get better ones tomorrow!  Have a lovely evening :o)
