Sketch Saturday and Crafty Little Fairies

Evening, all! How is your weekend going? Mine has been a little odd, since my daughter moved to Dublin on Tuesday, and the place is much quieter!! I confess I did shed a tear or two when I was ironing her jeans and hoodie today!! However, it's so amazing that she is now able to get on with her life, since a year ago she started her chemo.

Enough of this maudlinity (is that a word?!) I made a card today while listening to a terrific cricket match - England lost to Sri Lanka, but it was a damn' close-run thing!

The darling image is by Lili of the Valley of course, and I coloured her with my Promarkers in bright, sunny colours to cheer myself up. The papers are from the 'Porcelain' collection by Basic Grey - I have finally screwed my courage to the sticking place and started using some of my older treasured papers.

The flower is by K & Co (Citronella collection) and the sentiment is from Hero Ats' 'Thanks a Bunch' set.

The sketch is an old Sketch Saturday one:

. It would be perfect for using up snippets, too!

I'm entering the following challenges:

Thanks so much for looking, and have a happy Sunday!

love Mags B x

I love the bright cheery colours you have used on the image with those papers. Must admit I try and use digi papers as much as possible so that I don't have the dilemma of using up the last of a favourite sheet. Hugs Mrs a.

Your card is gorgeous Mags, I love the sweet image and beautiful papers.
I wish your daughter all the best in her new home, thank goodness her treatment was so successful. I do feel for you, it must seem so strange for you not having her there with you.
The cricket was good. My Son was VERY lucky to be given a complimentary ticket in the Grand Stand as he is part of a local cricket academy. He has just got home and had a fabulous time.
