 Goodevening Blogging Buddies.
I made this card last week for my sister who wanted a "Thank You" card for a work colleague....I dont know if it is really suitable for a "Thank You" card so I made another one as well so she can choose.  ( I will blog the second one another day) This beautiful fairy/angel image is from CC designs and I do love her.  This is the first time she has been inked up.  I think I followed a sketch, but I have no idea which blog it was off now...the challenge would have probably been finished anyway.

I would like to play along with the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Floral Delights
Crafts and Me - Friends and Family
The Play Date Cafe - Colours: Peach, Pale Peach and Lemon
I had an exhausting day at school today...some of the kids in my class have very sad home lives and it gets me down from time to time.  I wish I could help them more.  When I come home I start worrying about them.  It would be nice if all children could go home to safe households where they feel loved and happy... But I have to look on the positive side and make the classroom a comfortable and joyful place for them to come each day : )

I have been making more bulk cards over the last few days and will share those soon.
I hope you had a lovely day today, thanks for visiting.

Gorgeous card Alicia, love how you have coloured her hair and sparkly wings. Beautiful flower and love the gold bobble embellishment (don't know the proper name lol). I am sure you so brighten up the day of all your children, especially those special ones, I can just visualise a classroom of smiling happy faces, take careX:)

Hi Alicia
this is beautiful, much like you sound too, worrying about the children, I can understand that, It must be very difficult not to get involved, I would want to bring them all home.
Anyway looking forward to see your next cards, as they are always so beautiful.
hugs chris xx
