I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Whimsical Wishes

This card has received 2 Honors:  
A Ginger Gem and A Fluttering!



"Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature."
                                                               ~ Lynn Holland





It's been a roller coaster ride of events and emotions over the past two weeks with no time or energy to stamp until now.  Sadly, my uncle passed away on July 2nd after a short battle with lung cancer.  While it was good to see family and friends who I hadn't seen for a very long time, I wish it had been under happier circumstances that would have included my uncle.  My sons and I spent 3 very short days in WV saying goodbye and offering condolences to my aunt and cousins.  Two days later my husband and I accompanied our oldest son for orientation at Campbell University where he will be attending a month from now.  So, I have run the gamut of emotions in a week.

Needless to say, my creativity has been pretty nil and needed a shot in the arm.  What better way than to have a package of new stamps waiting for me this week in which to absorb myself!  This card started out as an entry for The Play Date Cafe this week, but slow as it was going it turned into a completely different direction and I am very happy with it.

I have lots of stamps on this card, far from my usual endeavors.  I love the little fairy girl, one of my new stamps from Red Land Paperworks.  The big yellow flowers were inspired by Play Date Cafe's color challenge.  Plus, the little fairy looks as if she could be hiding something behind her back, so I made a big flower for her to actually hold behind her.  And, I wanted the flower to be more 3D instead of just stamping it behind her.  The background is a plethora of stamps placed together.
