Celtic Fairy!

Good Evening Everyone, hoping you are all well, and good wishes and hugs to those who are not so good.

I have spent the day feeling really quite cold, I had to go out for an eye test this afternoon and I was wishing I'd put socks on, and I am really trying hard to resist putting the heating on. Is anyone else feeling the change in the weather.  Early morning is beginning to feel quite Autumnal.

Thank you one and all for all the lovely comments on my last card and I would like to offer a warm welcome to my latest follow John, it's lovely to have you aboard.

I'm making this a short post tonight so without further ado, here is my card;
Oh dear it's a wee bit blurred,
Ah, the closeups' a little better, my image is from http://deliciousdoodles.blogspot.co.uk/  where there are beautiful images drawn by Teri.  I won at Lili's Little Fairies a few weeks ago and my prize was digi stamps from Delicious Doodles and this was one of my chosen four. Please visit her blog as see all her wonderful images.

Now why I decided to use this colour combination is anyones guess, and if anyone can guess, would you please let me know as I'm quite baffled.

Promarkers
Core'dinations Card
Kanban Vintage Tapestry Paper
Kraft Card embossed with SB Flora embossing folder and gilded with Creative Expressions Golden Lilac wax
SB Decorative Lables 22
LOTV Sentiment
Crafty Individuals Bird Die, heat embossed with Wow Embossing Powder
Hobby House Pearls and flower
Ribbon Girl, Seam Binding
Glamour Dust

I can honestly say I've never had as much hair to colour, it was quite daunting to say the least and, as she is Celtic I felt it should be sort of red, thankfully, a You Tube tutorial came to the rescue, but it took me ages to do, I hope it looks ok. Unfortunately the way the glamour dust is showing on it, she looks as if she's going grey, but maybe faries do  who knows.

Anyhow Folks, I hope you like her, and thank for your visit, I'm off to make a hot drink and get into my gownie, Good Night.
Hugs Kate x

Hi Kate
Lovely fun card this evening. I know why you have gone for that colour combo. . . . . .you have been brainwashed into bright from looking at my blog lol!
Been lovely warm day here and Im sat in a vest top at 10.40pm. Our heating will not be making an appearance until November if I have my way.
Thank you for you well wishes. The tooth is good, so far, and the cold is improving.
Best wishes

Fab bright colours Kate, yes I'm feeling it cold too. Keep asking the rest of the family if they're cold too but it's just me apparently so I'm glad I have an ally! Shona xx

Hi Kate

The temperature dropped a little here yesterday too and for a split second I wondered if I need to get something on with long sleeves!!! I am not ready to give up on Summer yet though!

Loving your card. Such a great colour combo.

Hope you are having a good week and your trip to the Optician went well (apart from the cold feet).

Love Jules xx

Hi Kate a fabulous card I love your new image! It is definitely cooler here but I am not giving up on wearing summer clothes, last year I hardly wore them! Susan x

Hazel said...


Kate, your right it's feeling more like the start of autum than a summer morning here today. I have put my trainers on this morning just so I can have socks on, nothing worse than cold feet.

Love your Celtic Fairy, you have got her hair just right, even if it was a pain to colour. Hope you have a good day.

Good morning Kate, Loving your beautiful fairy with the wonderful colouring. Yes! her hair just had to be that wonderful colour.
A lot cooler here as well however the sun is shining brightly as I type this. Have not tested the temperature yet, have stopped sitting in the garden for my early morning cuppa .. to cold now.
Have a wonderful day
Hugs

Hi Kate,
such a super image, and card. Great detailing as usual.
We are still having lots of great weather here in the South, but sadly could do with the rain your getting occasionally in the north. I need my water butt filled up again, as it's costing me money to use the tap. lol. and I'd rather spend that money on crafty items. lol.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I am a little late Kate -- your card is so pretty and I think you did a fabulous job on her hair. Now if you want to see grey hair, you should look at mine!

How pretty! I just love the beautiful colors in your embossing. The fairy image is lovely of course. Such mystical and pretty creatures I think we ought to see more of them in paper crafts.

Best crafty wishes!
