Some good news.. and some bad news!

Happy Friday everyone......

So I've got some good news and some bad news. First the good news.. you are now at the weekend!! Yeah.. it's time for all that R 'n R you thought about all week. And, now for the bad news.. you are now officially another week closer to retirement!! Scarey thought.. don't you agree??!  Here at the Wired Angel's home.. we chuckle about that every Friday.

This is a card that I did for a few challenges... The first is Cute Card Thursday and for  challenge #96 we are to use a fairy in our card. So this challenge gave me the nudge I needed to pull out this darling image I've had for a bit but just never got around to coloring. At Hedgehogs and Ladybirds, Lucy's challenge #4 is to use glitter, so I added some clear glitter to the top of the fairies wings. And finally, I used the sketch challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges. Everything except the card base was pulled from my scrap bin.. so I'm feeling a bit green!



Remember those obscure holidays I told you about... well, in case you were wondering January 23rd is...
National Pie Day
National Handwriting Day
and... drum roll please...
Measure Your Feet Day!

Sorry folks.. I don't make this up.. I'm just the 'cub' reporter!

Happy weekend! Thanks for stopping by and 'til next time be safe in all you do!

I'm a fool for fairies and this one is fabulous. As always, you did an amazing job with your coloring. Your bad news is relative. I'm so far past retirement that it's a pale shimmer in the background. And, I'm loving every minute of it. hugs to you, eileen

PS. It was too cold to walk the boardwalk at Playland but I thought of you every time I passed the entrance!
