A Card and an Award

My card today is another Stamp Fairy card (cos I'm so in love with their fabulous images).  This one is the lovely Linda Fairy sitting on a swing.  I've gone for a Christmas theme only because I found some fab turquoise snowflake wrapping paper when I was having a tidy up.  Plus I think the fairy image is quite Christmassy.  The red and turquoise theme seems to go together quite well and is a break from my more traditional pastel colour themes.  Hope you like my little Linda bear.

I've been inspired by the following:

Hi Nettie - Thanks for you sweet comments and also for the kindness you extended by offering me a blog award. Sadly, I am not able to accept them and I have to once again pass on this. For me with Fibro, it's simply too hard to always get around and to follow up with all the requirements these awards have.

I've been offered many blog awards and I'm always thankful and's just something I can't accept.

Due to the amount I have received, and the fact that I can't keep it, I have had to make it clear to all my friends tat I'm not able to accept any awards, but I do thank you for caring!

To ME having people visit my blog and take the comment to leave a comment is always the BEST AWARD and a gift I can totally enjoy!
