I had a few things to do yesterday, so unfortunately I couldn't spend the whole day in front of the TV watching NCIS and Babylon 5 and crafting, but I did make a couple of cards.  This one is for the Sparkle and Shine challenge at Simon Says Stamp and I used another of the gorgeous Emerald Faeries so it also fits nicely into the Magical World challenge at Sir Stampalot this month and as a second entry into the first Emerald Faeries challenge!

The image (Ally) is coloured with copics (see details below) and I have added Stickles to her wings and to the flower.  I have then added Glossy Accents over the Stickles on her wings so the glitter doesn't shed and also to the ladybug.

The papers are from Crate Paper and October Afternoon.  The label sticker is from Crate Paper and I have used Doodlebug rub ons for the sentiment.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Here is a close up of Ally:

I have really been struggling with the lighting for photos on the boat... One would think that with all that white space the photos would come out beautifully lit, but no... sadly they always seem to be in shadow from somewhere.  Oh well, soon enough we will be back in Greece and back in our little apartment and I can get my photos back to normal!

Here are the copics I used:

Fire fighting went well today...  we tested our breathing apparatus and did some searches in the fire fighting area in the dark.  Summer has definitely arrived here in the South of France though... it was sooo hot!

Happy Monday!

Isn't it funny how certain words conjure up images within the mind?

"South of France" sounds sooo romantic, especially from where I'm sitting (it's cold and dark and due to rain any moment now)... conjures up visions of mountains and beaches and clear blue sea and skies... and sparkling wine and glistening bodies and...

I'd better go and bring the washing in....
