Fairy Lily Kate....

I received a FUN!! Pay it Forward package from my friend, Ellen, a couple of weeks ago. Ellen owns and operates Actor's - a fabulous restaurant in Petrolia -the same place we meet up with Kraftin' Kimmie and Phebe when we have our awesome lunches!!

In her package, there were several stamped images, a mini stamp set, some of those cool bling flowers and a few other goodies! all wrapped up in a yet-to-be-decorated tin!

One of the images was eloise greengrass, from Stamping Bella - she is so sweet and I have seen her coloured up so sweetly on several blogs- so I thought I would give her a go!!

The base of this card is cardstock from Memory Box, and it is so cool because it is heavy enough to be used as a card base (obviously....) and it is coloured on one side and white on the other!! So you don't have to add a white piece of paper on the inside!! Fantastic!

I added a 4 x 4 piece of Basic Grey Lily Kate designer paper (cut from a 12 x 12 sheet - back when I did the limited challenge).

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's anniversary set "Simple Little Things" that is NOT available in the store - sorry! I got it because I bought at least 12 sets in their first year - so anyone who had bought twelve sets of stamps received a free set - isn't that generous!!

Eloise was coloured with copics and decorated oh-so-shparkly!! with frosted lace stickles!! I love stickles, although I generally get them everywhere because I am not very patient when it comes to letting it dry!! LOL!

She was trimmed with Papertrey Ink Swiss dot spring Moss satin ribbon (whew-that's a mouthful!!) a Making Memories felt flower and a Prima flower.

The center of the flower is a bling brad and beside the sentiment is some more pretty pretty bling from Verve Visual!!

I finally took my taxes in yesterday YAY!! a freakin' load off my mind!! (In Canada, we have until the 30th.....) so to celebrate I went on to the golf course and paid our this afternoon, hubby and I can go out for a round of golf!! Whoot!Whoot!!
