Make a Wish

Firstly, my snake has finally eaten a mouse, after about 6 months of starving herself!!  I am now very pleased - although the mouse was probably a little large for her as it had a bit of excess fat on it and it took her quite a while to get it all into her mouth - But I did not choose the mouse, the OH did, so I blame him lol.

I finished 'The Host' by Stephanie Meyers audio book today. I have taken to getting them out of the library to listen to on my 61.5 mile, each way, commute to work. I found that the radio just was not stimulating enough for me to stay alert and so I needed something else to concentrate on whilst driving (other than driving :} lol). I found this a very entertaining book, and one that I would have enjoyed in paperback form also - but then I do like my fantasy books. It is rather different to the Twilight series, so even if you did not like Twilight, you may still find this book arresting - but then I did actually enjoy reading the Twilight books.

Anyway, onto my card that I have made this week. Only one this time, due to time constraints, but it does fit into several challenge themes :). I used a pale pink card blank for the base card (from the Works). I used a free digi-stamp from all dressed up, which I then coloured in using Promarkers (sorry didn't record which ones I used). I then layered the finished image onto bright pink papermania card and attached it to the card blank. I added paper flowers - one dark green and two cream/pale yellow to the top left of the image, and a 'Make a Wish' sentiment underneath them. I then too a fairy themed backing paper from my stash, in greens and pinks, and cut around the fairy's wings. I wrapped this with pale green twine, into which a bow was tied, and add some bright pink card to the bottom, with a decorative edge added using patterned scissors. I then stuck this below the image.
