Just a quickie

I meant to show this one yesterday, but time just got away from me, at the moment I could do with an extra 8 hours in the day. This was a very quick card I made late on Thursday evening, I actually started him in the morning, but I had so many interruptions during the day and my friend came for a visit in the evening, that it was quite late before he was finished.

Gayle must have had a bit of a moment when she drew this Teddy Bo, because she made HIM! the fairy for the top of the tree, and of course the teepee shape is perfect for representing a Christmas tree, so that's exactly what I made.

As well as colouring Bo in photoshop I used it to make the knitted paper, the red hairy fibre is something I've had in my stash forever, and the baubles are crystal stickers, which I think I bought in Poundland or somewhere similar, quite a while ago. The sentiment is my own, and was cut out using an X-Cut Die-licious die.

His wings were pinched from the Wee Sylvie Winter fairy digi stamp, and glittered with pink and silver glitter, which was also used on his skirt (that just seems the strangest thing to write LOL!), boots, wand and headdress.

I will be back tomorrow with a Clipart Fairy wedding card, made using Beth and Ben bear, see you then.

Love the 'knitted' Teepee Tree. Your colouring on Teddy Bo is fantastic - amazing that you can do that so beautifully on the computer. And doesn't he make the sweetest fairy. Fantastic.
