Saturday makes on a rainy day....

.......I finally managed to catch a fairy in a jar! god they are quick and mischievous.....hehehehe! I also had a card to make for a little girls birthday today, I had only minutes to make this one, so its only a quick make, literally, and not enough time spend on it for my liking, but sophie was delighted with it, couldnt wait to give it to her little friend at her party! soooo easily pleased!!

I hope she likes the fairy I caught her, I was going to give it to her when she gets back from the party!

Have a great weekend, hugs mandyxx
