Sugar Plum Fairy

Good morning all.

Well, the sun is having a small break at the moment so Mr Showers has taken over. Hopefully Miss Sun will be back tomorrow for the local carnival. The theme this year is animals and Phoebe wants to be a cat :). It will as usual be a fun-filled day ending, this year, with a family disco. I did try to sell my handmade cards one year but it's not the right venue as people don't want to carry stuff around.

I must admit that although I am missing Ben it is nice and peaceful around my house at the moment lol. Ben and James clash non-stop and wind each other up so that sometimes it's full-blown war here. James has been calmer and happier not having big brother around to compete with and fight with. Well, onto something completely different ..............



...... my card for today. Isn't she fabulous??? I adore Mo's images - they are so full of character and bring back lots and lots of memories from my childhood. This is Sugar Plum fairy but I made her into a christmas fairy. Her little plums have been coloured brown to look like nuts hehe. Lots of glitter and red as those are my favorite christmas things. One more christmas card done!
