Merry Christmas Fairy

Good morning folks. Oh what an awful week I have had with this cold but thankfully I am now on the mend and this cough is also going away. Nothing worse than that horrible itch you get in the back of your throat constantly. Anyways, it is the weekend. Woo hoo. Hubby and I are off to Gold Class cinemas tonight after we go to the Casino for a little while. Now for those of you who aren't in Australia - Gold Class is the premium movies with recliner chairs and service like you wouldn't believe. You can order your popcorn, food or drinks and they bring it to you and you have a little table in between the two seats. I am really excited as we haven't been to the movies for ages and especially not GC.

Anyway - on to my card. I made this card for The Sugar Bowl Challenge which is to use the sketch and make it a Christmas/Winter card. I so had to use my Manga Fairy. Even though she isn't actually a Christmas stamp I think she really is suitable. My Hubby thinks she is a bit too racy to be a Christmas Fairy but I disagree. I noticed after I uploaded the photo that I actually left out a couple of elements on the sketch but it is the way you interpret the sketch so I don't think it matters. Enjoy your weekend. I certainly will.

Products: Sugar Nellie stamp; SU card; BasicGrey Figgy Pudding DP; Versafine Vintage Sepia ink; Whimsie Doodles sentiments digi stamp; Fiskars border punch; SU Choc Chip ribbon; Snowflake (from my friend Tammy); Kindyglitz; Dimensional Magic; Copic Air brush

There's a few guys out there who would be stoked to sit on this Christmas fairy's lap, I'm sure. She is perfect.

Have fun at the movies, hey why join the plebs sitting in cold popcorn, when you can do it in style!

HI Trace
I love it! I'm so glad you used the snowflake! I'll have to get some more out your way.
I love how you colored the card and I'm so jealous you've got the Copic air brush. Wow this is on my list but it keeps betting pumped.
I love the colors and Cody like's your little racy Christmas Fairy.
So glad you are feeling better.
