HI Everyone!! Happy Hump Day!!  Boy am I feeling behind...I had hoped to post this yesterday but then one of my dear daughters got sick with the flu and needed A LOT of my attention.  Oh well, family comes first.  Thankfully she is feeling much better today!!  Maybe I can catch up on my blogging!!

Today I would like to share a card I created with a Meljen's Designs Digital Image from Whimsy called Firefly fairy.  I just love this darling fairy. So fun to color!!!  The sentiment is from Whimsy Ticket sentiments (rubber stamp). I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  The dp is Afternoon Tea from SU that I have HOARDED.  I still have 4 more packs of it. LOL!
