Make a wish!

Can you believe this fun little High Hopes Tutu Fairy has been sitting around coloured since Sunday? It's been a crazy week and I only just managed to pop my card together late last night.

The week started with a drama as poor Zoe fell over a ball in our kitchen and broke her arm... some news from Portugal in that my Nan was in hospital with double pneumonia. Thankfully she is now home recovering and then a high in that Gary started a new job Wednesday. It's only 3 nights a week and totally different from work that he has done before... but it's a job!

My card is for our Birthday Challenge over at the High Hopes blog and also A Spoon Full of Sugar where this week we are asking you to get Punchy! You can use dies or punches on your card. Both these challenge are open until late Monday so still plenty of time to play along!!!

My High Hopes Tutu Fairy by artist Dustin Pike has been coloured with Copic Markers. The Make a Wish! Sentiment is also High Hopes. I added a little stardust stickles to her skirt, wand and hairbands. The papers are MME but I can't remember which pack I pulled them from. I used a gorgeous Monarch Flower Center in the larger flower.

Hope you can play along with us at both challenges and as always if you do you could win a prize!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh you poor thing Nikki it sounds you must have had a very stressful week one way and another. I do hope your daughter is ok and coping with her plaster and hubby is settling down in his job.
Love your cheeky fairy, love the glitter on her skirt and the purple is really striking. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Oh dear, Nikki, a very eventful week. I hope Zoe is doing ok - I bet she's being spoiled, right?!

Hope your Nan is ok too - it takes a while to recover from that. Is she Portuguese, or just retired out there? I ask because my Grandma is from Portugal too.
