Good Morning!! Today looks like it is going to be a beauti-
ful day. Hopefully the weather energizes me to get a lot done because I have a very busy day ahead of me. Tomorrow there will be more previews or Sneak Peeks of some new releases for Spiral Whisper. I also hope to have a sneak peek of an Our Daily Bread Designs set. I love these new sets coming out and I can't wait to ink them up!!

Today's card is a High Hopes Fairy Princess! She is so adorable with her wishing wand in hand. Just imagine if there truly were fairies and they could grant you your wishes. What would you wish? My first wish, on a small scale in the area of crafting, would be to have a much bigger selection of copics!! I love coloring with them but I have slim pickings. I guess I should stop buying more stamps and designer paper and start saving for copics! That is so hard though. I just preordered the Whiff of Joy Summer Kit! I love Elizabeth Bell images!! I can never get enough. I wish I could use them more often than I do. My use more of these images. Between High Hopes, Whiff of Joy, Greeting Farm (Anya in particular), Whimsy and Pink Cat Studio, a girl could go broke!! Oh yes, can't forget my wishlist for Verve and Flourishes! is my little fairy. I used the sketch from yesterday's SC225 and the colors of CC215 (Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey, and Rose Red with the addition of Chocolate chip as my neutral color). I also incorporated the challenge by High hopes #27 to add distressing and the Flutter by Wednesday, to add use a fairy or a butterfly. Since I didn't have all the copics needed to color the image I used both my prismacolor pencils and gamsol and my copics. I made the wings shimmer by embossing them with holographic embossing powder. The image is cut out and popped up on dimensionals. I distressed my image by adding ink on most edges and using a paper distresser on all the edges of my layout. All the dp is from Basic Grey Bittersweet. I used my Bosskut flourish die and my Martha Stewart leaf punch around the prima flower that I got from Michaels. I took out the green stamens and added a brown button instead. The dry embossing on the white is the Cuttlebug Textile Folder.
Well I hope you like today's post! Thanks so much for visiting today and for all your wonderful comments. I really enjoy reading them! Have a great day!!

Oh my Chris this card is gorgeous the colours are so rich and that fairy image is so cute. Yes I would love to be a fairy with wings and a magic wand oooooo the things I could do with a bit of magic, but its not craft stuff I would wish for, well not all craft stuff lol, but to help my family especially my mum who is 89 and loosing her sight and she is a wonderful knitter and she still does it more by years of intuition than sight I guess.

This turned out great Chris. I love the paper you used. I wish I had a craft fairy too. I would love more copics colors. They are just so expensive. Super job.

Just stopping in to say high..You inspired me so much with this card, I attempted to do a card with 3 challenge for one card. If you get a chance stop by my SCS gallery and check it out. It has Betty Boop on it..stepped out of my confort zone a little, but it was fun. Thanks for everything have been so helpful to me in the last month with getting around with the challenges over there :)
