fairy happy day -- BLOG CANDY TIME!!!

Hi there!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!
I wanted to do something fun for the next 2 weeks, so I am offering some BLOG CANDY to one lucky winner who is following my blog with Google &/or Bloglovin'. 
You need to be a follower and leave a comment on this post to be eligible to win:
a voucher for 3 digi stamps from Tiddly Inks of your choice.
I would love for you to tell others about the blog candy.  :) :) :)
I will be doing all different kinds of blog candy for the next 10 Weeks so you will want to stay tuned to see what is coming next!!!
Thank you so much for helping me get the word out!!
**I promise to make it FUN w/prizes from all different companies!**

My card for today features a brand new Wryn fairy from Tiddly Inks called, Fairy Happy Day.
She is here in the garden and I went with bright colors, of course!!
If you are new to my blog, I'm absolutely head over heels for turquoise, aqua, teal, and lime!
(Oh, and coral, too!!   Can't forget coral!!)
I used my copics to color her and added shading with chalks.  I used a spellbinder die to cut out the garden, a YNS die for the butterflies, & a die from a-muse studio for the sentiment. 
I kept my card really simple because the image is so large and I wanted a big impact!  
Are you wearing your sunglasses??!   LOL   :) :) :)  
This bright fun paper is from Doodlebug Designs flower box 6x6 stack 
and the card stock is Lagoon by CTMH.  I used glitter pen on her wings and the wings of the butterflies for some added sparkle.  I LOVE sparkle and bling, but my camera does not... so I don't always add as much glitter and shine to my cards as I would like. 
The sentiment is from MFT and was stamped with soft suede ink by SU!
Here is a close-up ~~ if you click the pic, you can see it even larger.


I'm entering this card into:
That Craft Place ~~Dies & punches

Thanks for looking and helping me get the word out!
I love to follow other craft blogs, so feel free to put a link in your comment if you'd like me to follow your blog back!   :) :) :)
BIG BLOGGY HUG to YOU!

  13. Just visited all your previous blog entries, and I'm finding it very hard to believe you just got your Copic markers in April. You are a natural. Very lovely cards and very lovely coloring. I'm now a new follower (would love to have you visit me at http//toddhouse.blogspot.com). Continue to enjoy your new journey!

    1. Hey Jenée ~~Thanks for following me!! You are so sweet!! I promise you that my copics (or any coloring medium for that matter!!) arrived in April from an Amazon order. :) :) I started with the 25th Anniversary sketch bundle which are in black cases instead of the traditional sketch pale grey & I LOVE them because they have the super brush on one side and the fine tip (instead of the blunt nib) on the other! :) :) I wish all of the sketch came with these 2 tips instead of the nib.
      Thank you for your kind words! I can tell you that I am learning every day from tutorials and watching others. I also have 2 copic guides that I bought on Amazon to help me with basics. I am now a new follower of your blog!!!
      Thanks, again!
