Hey Everyone

How are you all?

Before I start this post, have you all heard about Bloglovin?

Now for all of you who follow me and receive your updated posts on your dashboard reading list, apparently this facility is going to be phased out in roughly around three months time - don't you just hate it when they change things!

So, I do hope you will continue to follow me by clicking on the 'Follow My Blog on Bloglovin' link at the top of my sidebar.

For those of you who aren't sure about Bloglovin, it is free to join and you will have to open this separately from your usual dashboard, but you can import all of your favourite blogs that you follow in one quick move by clicking HERE.

Right, I'm glad I have got that out of the way so I can get onto my post.

Today I want to share with you another one of those gorgeous pre-coloured toppers from The Hobby House and this one is the amazing 'Silver Fairy' from the Silver Fairy Collection.

Here is the full card:

I know you are probably bored of hearing me say this, but if you haven't tried these pre-coloured toppers then you just don't know what you are missing out on.  The quality of them is just amazing, the colours are so rich and vibrant and guess what, they are already die cut for you too, so no worrying about cutting the image out so it fits in the middle.  Try them - I promise you, you won't be disappointed.

The recipe for the card is:

Pre-Colour Topper:  Silver Fairy Collection - Silver Fairy - The Hobby House
Papers:  First Edition Dreamcatcher
Pearls:  The Hobby House
Felt for Flowers:  The Hobby House
Flowers:  Mulberry Cherry Blossoms - The Hobby House
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy - Circle Postmarks - The Hobby House

I have used Milled Lavender Distress Ink on the edges of the paper
I have used lots and lots of Glamour Dust on her wings and on the butterflies
Star Dust Stickles has been used as little highlights on the edges of the flowers

And that's it.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, whatever you are doing.

Take care

Ta ta for now.
