Fairy for a friend

Made this for a blogging friend, who has had a few stays in hospital lately. I know she's received it so can show it here now.

Edit...As Stef kindly suggested I've put it on Flutter by Wednesday.. well it's a fairy with 2 papers, just hope it's not too late..

Decoupage and glittered the fairy which is from Crafters Companions Flower Fairies CD, I chose her as I loved the colour and she is so dainty. I originally put her on a darker green background but didn't like it, then found the purple paper with the fern on it, so decided to go with the mauve, backing paper and velum from a pad I had.

Would love to know what you think..

I know a lot of you are experiencing the same problems as me with blogger, I've been trying to catch up on all the blogs I follow, sometimes the page loads, then IE says it cannot load the page, then I can't get to leave a comment, or I leave a comment and it doesn't show up, if I've left you comments on the same card more than once, sorry, I just can't see the comments I've left, and it's not the comment will appear after approval thingy, and if I haven't left you a comment well I thought I had........ I wish there was some easy way that I could tell which posts I have commented on, or am I just cracking up.....will spend a few hours later checking on all the blogs that I thought I'd left comments on to see if they appear, by that time maybe blogger will behave.
Edit.... I've just realised why I can't leave comments on some blogs, it might help some of you toolbar has a popup blocker on it, and depending on how the blog has it's comments page set up, the popup blocker is blocking it. I can't remember activating it, but I've turned it off now and can get to the comments page, now just hope this might be why I couldn't leave comments too. Now all I've got to sort is the IE problem, hope it cures this too.
Take care

Hi Chris: Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for the lovely birthday wishes. It's nice to meet you.

This card is beautiful and we'd love to see it on our Flutter by Wednesdays where all you need is a butterfly, fairy or anything with wings. There's always a little extra to add too. You can reach it through my sidebar. Do not feel obligated and I still love for you to visit my blog again.
