A "Fairy" Sweet Card for Ava!

Happy Thursday . . . and welcome, once again, to my little corner of the world! Before I show you my card for this week, I just want to take a few moments to thank you for your kind words and "get well" wishes. This goofy cold I thought I had actually turned into something more than a cold . . . Pertussis (a.k.a. "whooping cough), Influenza, Pneumonia (which I probably caught from Paola in South Africa! hehehe!) . . . or some crazy-weird exotic respiratory something or other that I picked up in Las Vegas! I don't know, of course, because I avoid doctors like the plague! LOL! Seriously, who needs doctors when we have the internet! hehehe!

Well, anyway, it looks like I'm on the mend . . . and, after more than a week, I finally spent a little time in my craftroom . . . just in time for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And since this is the first challenge of the month, our theme is . . .

Anything Goes!

With an option to use one of Iulia's fabulous sketches (which I sort of followed) . . .

Here's my little creation . . . 

This little darlin' is from Mo Manning's new "Baby Fairies" collection! You can find her HERE in Mo's online store. This card is actually for our sweet granddaughter, Ava, who is being baptized this coming weekend. We'll tuck a Barnes & Noble giftcard inside . . . since Ava LOVES books!!  Here's sort of a side view . . .
