Hugs, Kisses & Fairy Wishes

Hello my friends...
I have a fun card I think I will use for my little grandaughter  Kendall 
that will be 9 next month.
My goodness where does the time go??
I remember baby sitting her for a couple of years while my daughter worked
and she was only 18 months old then.
Here she is with her brothers and sister...aren't they just the cutest family??


So my card brings me to two purposes...
One for her birthday
and
Two for my Crafty Secrets  (blog) (storeweekly post!
 
When I first became on the Crafty Secrets design team,
Sandy, the owner (and such a sweet, sweet person)
sent me the  BIGGEST box of goodies to work with, let alone all her digitals!
I remember sitting outside by my kitchen garden with a glass of tea
and looking through that box.....wowzers!
It was loaded with wonderful heartwarming vintage product!!

In the box were these darling Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps "Altered Fairies"
and the most adorable little booklets FULL of adorable images
this one is called Childhood Images and Journal Notes...
this booklet has 32 pages in all and EACH page has 2 images to use!


I decided to try something a bit different then the "usual" A2 card
and made a Two Way Open Card.
The base measures 4.5 by 4.5
The second layer is a 8" by 4" and scored at 4"
Then the top corner cut off, leaving a triangle..
The third layer is 3.5 by 7", scored at 3.5
....kind of fun!

 The outside of the card is decorated with a "ticket" and "fairy"


I fussy cut the fairy from the Creative Scraps Altered Fairies collection.



The inside of the card is from the Childhood Images & Journal Notes tablet!
I added "fairy dust" (glitter) to all the fairies inside and out.

The last layer of card is shown below.
I love how she can add her own "fairy wishes" if she wants to!!



I know she will keep this card, 
as she is a little "hoarder of pretty things" like her Grandma and Mama!!

I will be back next week with a few 
adorable Valentines ....
don't miss it!!

Entering the following challenges:
Send A Smile For Kids .... Anything Goes

Gorgeous doesn't even begin to cover the way I feel about this card! It is dreamy and whimsical...and sparkly! Your fussy cut fairy is so regal and just a little bit sassy perched on the front of the card. Probably like your sweet princess of a granddaughter! Am I right? LOL Honestly, Diane....this is stunning. I'm going to share it on our FB page and blog this week. I love the clever design, too!

Pure adorableness -- both the family and the fairies! The problem with that box would be knowing where to start. So much goodness in one place. Bet it was fun looking through it!
