Poinsettia Fairy and CCAYR Sempember Challenge!

Good Morning to you all and I hope your Sunday is shaping up to being a good one, whatever you are doing.
Not the best of weather here but nevertheless we are going to brave a beach walk at Rosemarkie, which is on the Black Isle and very pretty and if we are lucky with the tides we just might see some dolphins.

Alistair arrived home, earlier than he thought he would, but feeling still queasy from a very rough crossing on the ferry from Strommness, but at least the captain got them in to Thurso. Sometimes the boats have to head out to the Atlantic for some time before they can manage in to port.  It's lovely to have him back safe and sound it a tad stinky, but with a lovely prezzie of a neckless and earing set from Ortak as a wee thank you for just being me and keeping the home fires burning. Wasn't that lovely!

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my Previous card, I love reading them, and also can I give a warm welcome to Lindsay of Craftymonster81 who has decided to follow my adventures in Blogland.  I do hope Lindsay you will enjoy my blog and my humble creations.

My card to day is my inspirational contributing to CCAYR, which this Month is Fairies with a Little Sparkle, and it needn't be a Christmas Fairy, any old fairy will do as long as it is made with lots of Christmasy glitter and bling.

I've chosen an image from http://deliciousdoodles.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/poinsettia-fairy.html
Coloured with Prismacolour Pencils
Green, Red and Gold card
First Edition Christmas Village Papers
SB Frosty Forms Corner and Border dies
LOTV Sentiment
The Ribbon Girl Crushed Golden Ribbon
Hobby House Dazzler
Glamour Dust

I hope this will offer some inspiration and that you will join us at http://christmascardsallyearround.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/september-challenge.html
