Fuchsia Fairy

 Good morning, can't believe it's been a whole week since I last posted! So much has happened this last week- the storms and terrible weather, the end of Covid restrictions and now the dreadful events taking place in the Ukraine, it's really frightening to think about it and the catastrophic loss of life that will follow the invasion. I think the world has enough problems facing what is happening caused by natural events, climate change  and global warming without mankind adding to it with acts of aggression that will have worldwide consequences.

Enough doom and gloom I'll change the subject now and move onto today's card.
 It's time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Catz, this week we're sponsored by

and the optional twist for those who want to use it is 'Add a flower'.

I made a CAS card featuing the sweet Chibi Fuchsia Fairy, She's coloured with Copic Markers and I've added loads of sparkle to her wings with Wink of Stella. My added flowers are a Lavinia fuchsia stamp, and two tiny doodled  flowers at the end of the doodled border. The sentiment is stamped too.

There's plenty more to see over at Crafty Catz,  so do hop over and take a look at what the ladies have created this week- and you're all invited to join in!

Thanks for visiting

stay safe and well.

Hi Chris,
I love this card and your Fuchsia Fairy is so gorgeous and very sweet.
Fuchsias are my fave flower for the garden as they last such a long time over the summer months.
You have coloured her perfectly as weel and your doodling looks fabulous.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Now that's just gorgeous, Chris! I love the cute image and your colouring is perfect. Wonderful clean and simple look as well.

I can't take it all in sometimes: global warming; the climate crisis, the pandemic now a war - but not the only war going on the world, just the one closest to our island. It's all a bit too much and I shut off, otherwise I think I'd just sit and bawl at the state of the world.

Off to try and think happier thoughts now!
