Just Add Ink #56...."Fairy Godfriend"

Evening all.

Today was a slow one, no matter how hard i tried to busy myself, the day im sure just kept getting slower and slower...that was until i sat down to do a bit of creating.

For today's creation i chose to do the sketch over at "Just Add Ink"
Here is the sketch

The card is a for a very special friend of mine, She suffers from an anxiety disorder, and can have some very rough times. 
So i though to put a smile on her face i would make her a card to let her know i'm here for her, even if it is just for a hug.
 I have also decided to make myself her "Fairy Godmother Friend" (if there's such a thing), to give her strength through those rough times.
I know she likes my creations, and this one is just for her.

I had a few firsts on this card...
First time using my new Top Note die
First time using a Digi Image
First time (and having a go at) using water colour paper.

I am really pleased with the finished result.
I left the background simple, as i wanted the "fairy Godmother Friend" to be the focal point


  1. Gorgeous card and love that stamp Sharna! That water colour paper just makes that watercolouring as it looks like real fabric. Thanks for playing along this week at JAI!

  2. A fantastic take on the sketch Sharna. I can't believe it is your first go at watercolouring. You handled it like you have been doing it for years! What a lovely Godfriend you are :-)

  3. It's good to see you venturing out and trying new things for the first time. Thanks for choosing Just Add Ink to showcase your lovely card.

  4. Wow! I can tell that a lot of love went into this one! And ... what a sweet friend ... to care so much for your friend. I'm sure this will be a lovely "pick me up". Hugs xxaxx
