A LITTLE BIT OF MAGIC.....

Happy Friday all!!!  Whew!! Another week down, but this weekend is going to be soooo busy! I have my youngest son turning 16 on Sunday so all his buddies are staying the night tonight and then heading to Six Flags for the day tomorrow!  I am taking care of the festivities tonight - making cookies, cake, pizza, and surrendering the family room to the world of X-box and then Tony will take them to the park - I don't do rides at all, and Tyler said "mom, you probably won't see us all day, so you don't have to go", LOL!  I think that is teen speak for "we will have a great time without you" - heehee! Which worked out well because  have Club on Saturday and he did not decide on what he wanted to do until this week, LOL!!  Sunday we will have a family celebration and take him out to dinner! I can't believe my baby boy is turning 16.......but, I know you are here about the card, so onward! I used a new set from the Summer Mini on this card called A Little Bit of Magic - I just love how super cute these fairies are! They remind me of the old-fashioned woodland fairies in storybooks that spread happiness everywhere....so that is how I think of them!!!  I decided to do a square card as I have not made one in awhile and this is actually the size I prefer to make.  I stamped my image in black stazon and watercolored with my ink pads and blender pens...I find this very relaxing, lol!  Then, I broke out the Gold Smooch spray and sprayed the  panel (embossed with the new Square Lattice folder) with it, and sprayed Vanilla Smooch on the image and oooh, mycard is all sparkly and pretty!!! Want to see?
 Here is a closeup that shows it a bit better and you can click on the image to make it even bigger!  She is all shimmery IRL just like an actual fairy!! I had so much fun making this card - I originally was going to use this as a Club card but decided on something else instead so I thought I would share!! I hope you like her - I am really happy with how this one turned out!! So, now - off to shop for Tyler's bday festivities, weigh in (so much fun!), and bake cookies and a cake!! All in a mom's day of work, lol!! I will be hiding in my stamp room tonight while they battle it out on the Xbox so I will get some stamping time in tonight!! I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and enjoy your weekend!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I really love reading all your comments!!
