Little Fairy on a Flower

Well, Thanks to everyone! -- the Monday Theme name suggestions rolled in .... I don't know how I am going to pick! I'll have to keep thinking over all of them. I think I'll make you wait til next Monday to see the winning suggestion... so if you think of any more-- drop another comment on the Underwear Frog!
I know I said I am not a fairy kind of girl when it comes to stamps, but again I am kind of liking this little Fairy series from Repeat Impressions. I showed my Husband this card... sometimes I share my cards with him, sometimes not.... he said.... "What is that?? -- a Naked Bug". Men! But now every time I see it I think "Naked Bug"!!! So the Naked Bugs always seem to be done up in pastels.... so I went the other way and tried to do it up in brights, using the "Offbeat" Collection of papers from Basic Grey. Finished card size is 5 1/2" Square. Check out other Repeat Impressions' Fairy cards from Robin and Sandy!

  1. Very cute card. Fairies are not something that reach for either. You made me laugh about the comment from your husband. I like to show my cards to my husband. Since I'm pretty new to making cards, he does not know what to think when I attach things a bit crooked for have flaws! But one thing he does know is that he does not like a lot of layers, a lot of color or busy things on the card. He asked me to make a card for him to give a co-worker and he wanted just an image stamped on the card...using kraft cardstock and brown ink! I had to dress it up a bit with a cream die cut nestie.

  2. *giggles* Naked bug... I've actually been making fairies! Knock me over with a fairy... I mean, feather!

  3. I love this tiny little Fairy Jenny, it's beautiful & coloured to perfection as always.
