I'm not part of the official Blog Hop today, but thanks for stopping by to look at my creations. I had fun with the Garden Fairies set.

My card has lots of glitter. I had made a glitter card once before and loved the way it turned out, and I thought a fairy needed lots of glitter in her life. After making the background, I placed a sheet of acetate over the "frame" and attached it with the ribbon. Then I placed the stamped diecut on top of the acetate and added a little bling!

My box was made as a gift to a co-worker who has been having many health problems, and I wanted to make her feel a little better. She loves fairies -- has all kinds of them all over her office. I had received some Christmas cookies in the box and kept it because I liked the unusual shape. I just covered the lid and added the stamped fairy, which is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I wrapped some ribbon around the edge of the lid and across the top, adding a bow and a flower. I gave it to her last week, and she loved it. I am so glad!

My brother-in-law gave me these Lladro-like clowns for Christmas many years ago.
