Make it Sparkle at In the Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are well and enjoying the fabulous warm sunny weather we are having.

Thank you for all the lovely Happy Birthday wishes for my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver earlier in the week. I'm thrilled to report that he loved his Gruffalo card and all his Gruffalo gifts - I would have loved to be able to share some photos of the birthday boy with this post - but 'silly Grandma' (in Oliver's words) left her iPad where the photos are at Oliver's house and although he will be here for playtime today it won't be until after this post has gone live - so I guess I'll share them another day :o)

So today I would like to share my DT make for the new challenge over at

Fabulous card! Love that pretty little fairy with her sparkly wings and this is so perfect for a 4 year old girl. I also like that die behind the image and those flowers are gorgeous... I think I have that stamp and die so I must dig it out because these are lovely.
