A splash of blue

Good morning!  Dinner last night went really well at the boss's house.  They loved the NZ lamb shanks... phew!   I was a bit worried as they have told me before that they don't really like the taste of lamb, but I think they really just don't like their lamb rare, so slow cooked lamb shanks was a good solution.

I have a small card to share today that I made for the Do You Stack Up challenge this week which is A Splash of Blue.  This is an 11cm x 11cm card rather than my usual 14.5cm x 14.5cm.

The papers are a mixture from Jilly Bean Soup, Bo Bunny and maybe Echo Park.  The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl and the button is from my stash.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  This little fairy is a clear stamp from Pergamano and I affectionately think of her as the loo fairy as she really looks like she's sitting on the loo to me.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
Do You Stack Up #46: A Splash of Blue

Here's a close up of the 'loo' fairy:

I coloured this one a while ago and I can't find my photo of the copics I used sorry....

Have a lovely day!

Hi Arabella, such a sweet card! I've got that stamp too and now you mention it, she does look like she's on the loo!! I will now always think of her like that. As always your eye for colour is wonderful and I love the swirls! Sarah

PS - Theresa May is the UKs Home Secretary. She has been in the news a lot over immigration row / scandal - she is (I think) quite a bit older than me and I think hubby was being a meany when he compared me to her (well I hope he was and not being honest!!!!). Not surprising you don't know who she is, why would you and it's not bad at all.

Uber cute little faerie. Love her! So happy dinner went well... not that I thought it was likely to be anything other than great!

Miss you.
