Flutter by Wednesday & more SNS!!

Okay.....I'm publishing this post with this super dodgy photo 'coz I'm too excited to wait another moment.....but I'll be uploading a newer, better, more accurate colour-captured shot tomorrow once I've had a chance to photograph it in daylight. (The card is actually lying on a white background - not sure if its the same on your screen but its definitely a lilac colour on mine!!)

I had so much fun colouring the gorgeous "Ginger" in!! She 'told' me before I even started that her hair was PURPLE and her dress was green so who was I to argue. It was sooooo much fun and since PURPLE is my all-time, hands down FAVOURITE colour, it was super easy too. Again, special thanks go out to the Legendary Amy!! However....at 2am when I had finished colouring both the SNS gals in I found I didn't have any suitable green paper or DP in my stash to go ahead and make Ginger's card.

And I knew which DP I wanted to use - Basic Grey Origins!! After I got through all my chores (bores) today, I headed to one of my local scrapping shops and THEY DIDN'T HAVE IT!! Hadn't ordered it and weren't going to either!! Can you believe it!! So I got on my high horse and rode along to my other 'favourite' scrapping shop (where I am known my name, ain't that nice) and purchased 100 times more than I had planned (its why I ration my excursions to said shop!!). Should've gone there in the first place, but was a wee bit concerned they may have been closed already.

(On an aside, the owner also helped soothe my ruffled and definitely upset feathers over my drama with my Cuttlebug machine......I'm gonna drop it by sometime soon and she'll have a look and see if anything can be done!! Yay, double yay!!)

Anyways, drama aside - I came home unpacked my groceries and finalised my car rego deets (which were the priorities on my to-do list for today) and then was able to put my card together. I love it, love it, love it!! And its huge too!! Well huge by my standards. 11cm x 11cm square. I also picked myself up some Tim Holtz Distress Inks finally and have applied Frayed Burlap to the edges of all cardstock.

I'm entering this into the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge....because I can. Ginger has beautifully sparkly wings and is definitely a spritely little fairy so she qualifies!!

Thanks for dropping by for a squizz. Hugs xxx

Pure gorgeousness Michey. Love how you colored her and yes, I can see all her beauty. Can't wait to see the new pic cause your card looks gorgeous here.

You gotta love it when the stamps start talking to you, just be careful not to mention that to a non stamper...they might put you in the looney bin! ;)
But Ginger knew what she was talking about because she looks GORGEOUS! And I love the BG papers and can't believe the one shop wouldn't carry them (though my local store won't either, thank goodness for online shopping)!
Have a great week Michey and I'm glad I sent the rain and gloom to you this past weekend so you could get these fabulous cards done! ;)
