Dottie's World and My Time to Craft

I treated myself to some of the Pixie Chicks downloads from Charmed Cards so I thought I would have a go at the challenge this week at Dottie's World which is Blooming Beautiful, they want you to be inspired by nature, and this is what I came up with...

I put one of the coloured images into my graphics programme and changed it to a black and white image and then printed it out onto gloss card, I think she is my favourite Pixie Chick! I got some doilies the other day from Sainsburys and I tried one on this card, I think they look pretty!
Whenever I want Dylan to wash his hands I tell him that there is a fairy at the bottom of the garden, by the time he's searched for it his hands are clean ha ha!! That's my interpretation of the challenge!!
And over at My Time to Craft this week the theme is 'Music to My Ears' and here is my card...

This was a quickie using a Kanban sheet, although getting everything to go together did take a while, so maybe not so much of a quickie!!
I've been a bit busy so far this week with stuff going on at home and at work, on Monday the Council were cutting some grass across from my house, the man was on a ride-on mower and went over a brick which flirted through the air and chipped my glass! There should be someone coming to fix it but no sign of anyone so far!! And then there was Dylan's appointment at the hospital this morning, we spent £7 in taxi fairs for a consultant to flex his arm and say come back in 6 weeks for an Xray! Don't know what the point of that was!! And whilst I was stocktaking on Monday the boss came up to me and offered me a Supervisors job on the spot (which I turned down for lots of reasons) I thought that was possibly the easiest promotion ever lol!! It's been one of those weeks so far, I'll be glad when this one is over!
Well, better go... Thanks for looking as always...
Love Becky xx

Bad weeks or not we never get them back! lol. Love your cards, great what you have done with the fairy! I have the second kit myself and also though it would be handy and quick, but it takes a lot of thought to get it right doesn't it! You got it right ok.

Wow she has fantastic eyelashes!! Super card love the black and white of the image so effective. Your 2nd card 'rocks' to!
Hope the man turned up to fix your glass, and how frustrating with the almost pointless hospital visit, but so long as everything is ok that's what matters.
Take care,

Hi Becky. Felt sure I'd commented on this as I love the Pixie Chick. She's beautiful and I love what you have done with her. The Rock card is a great man's card too! Sooo difficult to cater for our men! xxxx
