Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend.  This week has been especially busy for me so I am thrilled it is the weekend!!!

If you are here for the Wags N Whiskers hop you are in the right place.  If you would like to visit the Your Next Stamp hop, click here. is the Wags n Whiskers Blog hop!!!  Woo hoo!!  This release has so many gorgeous fairies in it and I know the team has lots of inspiration to share with you!! It is also the Birthday of Wags N Whiskers!! Happy Birthday WNW!  You may notice most of us will have made a birthday card or project for this occasion.

If you came here from Jeanette's Blog, you are in the right place, if not you may want to start at the beginning so you don't miss a chance at the prizes or inspiration!  There will be THREE prizes hidden along the way of two stamps of the random winners choice so make sure to leave a comment on all the designers along the way.

I have the opportunity of sharing the exquisite Iris image being released today at 7 a.m EST!!

I colored her up with copics and added lots of sparkle to the wings.  The dp is  Basic Grey Capella and Green at Heart dp. I added some lace, stitching, pearls (ZVA Creative pink flourishes) and flowers along with the yummy ivory silk!  The sentiment is computer generated.

Since it has been a hectic week for me in blogland and some of my sneak peaks may have been buried under other posts, I would like to share my other two sneak peaks from this week:
The above image is Liali Fairy from Wags n Whiskers paired with the Ticket Sentiments available at Whimsy.  The dp is BG Capella and the dies I used are Bead it ovals and Lacey Squares from Spellbinders.
This third creation is is Rhiannon Fairy from Wags n Whiskers which I colored with copics paired with the Ticket Sentiments at Whimsy Stamps.  The flowers are prima roses (mini) and recollections.  The ribbon is purple silk from May Arts.  The die I used for the circle shape is the Lacey circles die from Spellbinders.

The Creative Cottage #24 - bling
Paper Sundaes #38 - something from your stash (lace was a scrap piece)

I love all your creations with these fairies but I have to say the one that catches my eye is today's - it's the life you have given the whole design with your colouring of the hummingbird. A real treat of variety in your 3 sample cards too. Eye candy with my biscuits & coffee before bed!
I shall dream of fairies & what my husband calls "carding".
