Tissue Paper Fairy Fun Friday Challenge








It's that time again, the Fairy Fun Friday Challenge. The theme this week is tissue paper, I have two cards to show, the first is one a did for a friend of my son's birthday, I used the tissue paper as the rocket flames I coloured the inside with an orange marker. I am entering it at Creative Inspirations and Die Cut Dreams.

The second is for my husband's cousin. She had to put her beloved black labrador down this week. She was luck to have had a very long and happy life. I imagine the family is having a tough time, it's so sad to lose a pet, so I decided to go with a more traditional card using a tissue paper flower, I included a poem on the inside. The leaves are the Prairie Fairy's, but are subtle compared to a full character image, so that's why I added two cards this week. This is also for the Cupcake Challenge. - Flower power.
And on another side note, my son saw the specialist today for his broken leg (hockey injury), and turns out both of his bones in his lower leg are broken, he got a funky orange cast and a little walker so he's pretty happy to be more mobile than before. We go back in a few weeks to see how things are going, looks like it should mend back to normal. Thanks for stopping by....
