A Little Fairy in a Jar and a Card that Didn't Make the Cut

Hello! I'm tired. I would like to take a nap. For like the entire day-ish. Just Say'n. But, alas, this is not in my future, therefore, I shall share with you a little piece I created for Retro Cafe Art, instead. YAY!

Fairy in a Jar


This is my little dolly fairy in a jar! The dolly is one of the fabulous Retro Cafe Art collage sheets that you can get in either printed or digital form! I also used the little bird from the same Hello Dollie Valentine sheet. I love it!

The bottom of the jar is just SPARKLING with bright pink Martha Stewart glitter happiness!!!! I love glitter. A lot. Have I mentioned that? Less than a hundred times? Not sure...but...leave it to say...I love glitter. Just say'n.

I also glittered up her wings a bit with some Stickles to give her more sparkle! I just love that little white picket fence wrapped around the jar! You can get that in lengths of 18" so it is great for projects like this or even on scrapbook pages and stuff!

I wrapped the lid with a fabric tape from Love My Tapes and then added a die cut flower cut from my Art Philosophy cartridge (by Sally the Cricut). A bit of May Arts beaded wire is wound as the center of the flower.

...AND....if you look REALLY closely, you can see the pretty little paper flower adorning the fairy's hair! I love it! It's happy making!!!

And...I wanted to show you this fun little card I made! I submitted this one, but it wasn't chosen, so now I get to show it to all of YOU! YAY!!!! It's a shaped card I created with my Hello, Kitty Greetings cartridge and My Mind's Eye papers. It's happy making, too!!!

happy Wishes


The sentiment is Lawn Fawn. I particularly like the inked edges on the cloud on this one. For some reason that just made me smile!

So...that's all for today. Basically, just happy stuff. 'Cause happy is a good thing. So is candy, but it appears I'm out of candy, so I'm going to have to rely on happy for today. *sigh* HA! Later, dudes!

Jingle Out.

  14. No candy? and no nap? Now that's just sad. But the inky cloud makes me happy too, and the fun patterns, and the pearl swirl. Actually, that rhyme made me happy too :)

  24. I am adoring your sweet little fairy. Honestly though Jingle, you just don`t seem like the type to keep a little bit of sweetness like that captured in a jar! I am sure you let her out at will LOL
