Birthday fairy

Morning peeps, well not sure when this will get posted as our internet has died yet again, hubby laughed when I told him the faults phone number is in the phone and the guy on the other end said they really should get this reoccurring fault sorted as I shouldn’t know all the tests that have to be done before they escalate a fault. It took them several days to get to this point before as the first time we had this problem way back in July they told me it normally took 2 days to do the tests I’ve done in the last 20 minutes and that’s because you have to wait 10 minutes between them! Well tests done and still no internet, husband and son who both think their arms have been cut off when they can’t get on the net and can’t go out as we are waiting for a parcel delivery so who knows what kind of mood they will be in by lunch time?- update internet back on by 7pm and within 5 minutes hubby on computer and son on internet on his phone!

Well my card today is for my niece for her 18th birthday, I know fairies might seem little girlie but I think this fab fairy glen stamp that I was lucky enough to win at the release blog hop from sugar Nellie has enough attitude to make her a grown up girl fairy. I went outside my comfort zone and used pink, boy I find it so hard; it’s got to be all in my head as it is just another colour after all.

I coloured Pippi Longsocks fab name with promarkers and added stickles to her wings and dots on her skirt, she just looks such fun and ain’t anybody going to mess with her, even if she is wearing girly pink. The rest of the card I used scraps from my pink scrap file; I used a punch to fancy up the corners and followed the layout from fetch a sketch. The big pink 18 is peel offs. The sentiment is a lotv stamp. I’m undecided as yet as to whether to add anything in the top right corner, I think it looks a bit bare but adding something might make it look cluttered and detract from the clean lines, let me know what you think please.
