Garden Fairies

Dappled summer light and pretty flowers, don't you sometimes wonder what sweet little creatures might be visiting your flower garden?  Today we have a precious set to show you that might just have you believing in fairies!

GardenFairiesGrahpic


Add a dash of whimsy with these sweet little ladies who love to flutter and fly through the garden. This set, penned by Lauren Pope offers two main fairy images and five beautifully scripted sentiments to lift spirits and bring smiles! Set measures 4 by 6". 

I think these little garden fairies are just delightful!  I decided that this little one would look precious colored on Classic Kraft cardstock so I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set to work for something dreamy.  


I've used our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Hourglass Die to cut out the shape and framed it out with some Classic White Cardstock and some pretty designer paper layers (Teresa Collins Memories).


Some pretty accenting with seambinding, Teresa Collins Enamel Dots, white crochet lace, our Tailor Made Classic Tags die and Teal Zeal Memento Ink.  She's just SO cute isn't she?   



The girls have some sweet and dreamy things to show you today so head on over to visit them and don't forget that we have a...

  Mystery Blogger Graphic   

 ...to find today.  Hidden among the Design Team's blogs today is our Mystery Blogger of the day.  Comment on her blog and you could be chosen to win today's set!  The more you comment, the better your chances.
