Hi, and welcome!
It sees to have been one of those loooong weeks when I have been busy-busy, but don't really seem to have achieved much.....sigh......BUT....I did get to see the brilliant Les Miserables......twice!
What a surprise to hear the gorgeous voice Russell Crowe has!!
When he sang the evocative "Stars", I almost melted with delight.....ahemmm!
I read the book when was 16 years old and it had a profound effect on me. I also remember seeing an old film, and went to see the stage production when it was launched, 27 years ago. It was wonderful to see Colm Wilkinson, who first brought us the character of Jean Valjean to the stage, playing the Bishop in the film.
I often shed tears during the film....but was brought to a drippin', sobbin' state when I heard one of the closing lines.....
"To love another person is to see the face of God."
Anyway, it's Friday......hooray!.....and there's another challenge going on at
The theme this week is
GREEN AND YELLOW
and we are so pleased to have one of our favourite sponsors back with us
Milk Coffee will provide a generous 5 images to our randomly drawn winner.....you'll have loads of fun trying to choose from so many!
I made a girlie card with the very pretty Tiffany Fairy......
I love green! I started with a white card base and layered on some green Raspberry Road paper. I cut the doily shape with a Nestie from a piece of Nitwits paper.............
A very pensive little fairy, lol.....I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir and Promarkers to colour her up and added some sparkle to her hair, wings and the flowers......I haven't fussy-cut for a while, so this made a nice change........
The sweet sentiment was cut from another freebie page of sentiments. I added some teeny pearls to the corners and put a piece of green mesh behind......
A few strands of fibres, tucked under the fairy image, make her look as if she's sittin' in a nest...hahaaa!
A couple of flutterbies, cut from glittery pink card, are the finishing touches.
My Teamies have produced some really lovely cards for your inspiration, so please take a few minutes to check out their creations.
