Two girly cards

I haven't been able to spend much time on the computer the last 2 evenings as I have been working on spreadsheets so much at work I think I have strained my eyes a bit so apologies I haven't visted as much as usual.

I felt like making a couple of girly cards this afternoon so here they are. The first one is one of the lovely Pollycraft fairy images. I added some glitter and a few flower and butterfly stickers. Papers are mainly Henbury Lane. The top paper is glittery and I added some lace and a bow with pearls. Flowers are from Wild Orchid. I used the first ever MS punch I bought last year, the doily lace border punch, still one of my faves.

Sketch Saturday fab sketch
Pollycraft Let's have a sing song (Mine is Come fly with me by Frank Sinatra)
A spoon full of Sugar Sunshine Inspired

In my stash I found some Forever Friends stickers which I have never got round to using. They are so sweet that I thought I would use one for a change from stamping. I glittered round the edge and used the gorgeous sketch from Friday Sketchers which I rotated. At Just cute bears the challenge is here comes Summer. I don't know what the weather has been like where you are but I would love to see Summer. We have had some sunshine but a cool wind means I am still wearing a jacket every day.

I love that your cards are so girly. They are both beautiful and fun. I really liked how your song "Come fly with me" is so fitting with your image.

Good luck and thanks for joining us at Hidden Treasures.
