A Card for ArtbyMiran Facebook Challenge


Good Morning Crafters, its been awhile since I blogged again here on my No.2 blog but there has been a reason for them firstly my friend and neighbour died from Lung Cancer on the 11th, and it really hit me hard. Then her children started to clear her house out and this is because she was on Social Security who paid her rent and they wanted to clear it before they needed to pay any rent on it.
Then to crown it all while walking towards the backgate I tripped on a cover on the drain and because I was holding a bag of toilet rolls I not only didnt see the cover I could not do anything about helping myself I fell and hit my head on a brick wall, and of course it wasnt a good thing to do, I slit my right ear which is still sore and I have bruises in my head and face plus those on my body, (knees and legs). I did get a paramedic to come and check me over and luckily it wasnt needed to take me to hospital but I have found my balance is a bit of at times and Im not sure why this is happening though it didnt start for two days afterwards.
Anyway this card is created with the reserved image from ArtbyMiran these are free if you have created a card with the last image if not you pay a nominal amount less that the usual as  you dont know what it looks like until you unzip it. This image is "Sweet Sally" and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut her and a fancy one for the mount.
The papers are also from ArtbyMiran and this set is "Happy Days" I have used 5 of the papers and layered them up as you can see in the photo. The sentiment was stamped and treated in the same way as the image.

What a cute image and love our card. However, it's not a fairy and that's what our challenge is this month: "Fairy Cute". Thanks for thinking of us, though, and you still have time to enter a fairy card into our challenge at The Cutie Pies. Hugs, Gail
