Fabulous Friday - Sending Happy Thoughts

Morning guys. I'll have been up well before this post me thinks.. heading up to Edinburgh Zoo for the day with the boy! Cannot friggin' WAIT!! This week has been a total blast so far and there is still so much more to come. So because I'm scheduling this post with loads of time to spare.. it will more than likely be filled with waffle. :)

This is a birthday card I made for the extremely loooovely Melissa.. for.. well.. her birthday! By the time she spies it over at the Tiddly Inks DT blog I have my fingers crossed it'll have made it in the post over the pond - if not, then shame on airmail for spoiling the surprise!! Slow asses.

I used the gorgeous Wryn - Fairy Friends from Tiddly Inks. LOVE this girlie. Infact, I'm loving all of these wild and wonderful fairies and pixies I'm seeing around blogland lately - they're so dreamy and remind me of when I was young and carefree, although I don't exactly know why.

I've coloured her up using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and gone a little crazy with the grass at the bottom of her deliciously coloured toadstool. I've used some left over papers from My Minds Eye - Mabel collection alongside some ribbon and twine from The Ribbon Girl, a circle postmark stamp from Whimsy and some brads from Doodlebug.

I didn't make a note of all of the combos, but here are the few I did..
 Hair - March Hare, Tan, Cinnamon, Umber
Toadstool - Tea Green, Aquamarine, Pastel Green, Mint Green, March Hare, Sandstone, Tan, Cinnamon
Yellow - Buttercup, Pastel Yellow, Mustard

I tried to keep this card pretty flat, so it was easier to mail. I've doodled around all of the edges and added the whole thing to a Kraft cardbase. I wish I'd taken a closer picture of her wings - I tried to make them gradiated (is that even a word?!) from blue to yellow.. it looked pretty good IRL if I do say so myself!

That's about all from me for this one! Hope you likey, and be sure to stop by the Tiddly Inks blog to see what the other ladies on this amazing DT have got for ya to dribble over!! 

Just wanted to share a few little photos of my Darts Presentation night before I pop off. :)
