Perfect for a Lil' Fairy

Mark it on your calenders!!!  It's true... I cooked today - ha ha ha ha ha.  No, really - it's funny!  I actually made chicken enchiladas.  Wow - yay me!  AND I completed my DT card for Karen's Doodles.  But, sadly... there is a but... I have to be up and ready to leave the house in the morning by 6:00 {gasp!}.  That's practically the middle of the night for me - lol!  Ok... this is a good challenge for me.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me  Phil. 4:13.  (You know that I need a lot of strength, Lord!)  I'll let you know how it goes.  My DH, SIL and I are going to Georgetown which is about an hour and a half drive.  We'll have breakfast when we get there.  See?  Things are looking up already : )

I had soooooo much fun making this card.  A friend had asked me to make a card for her SIL baby shower.  I know, I know... this isn't technically a "baby" card, but it's the theme of the nursery, so it's perfect!  I can still "slap on" a baby sentiment before I give it to her.  I needed to get this in on time, so you are seeing the almost done version.  I still love the way it came out!

Today is another Karen's Doodles US Challenge.  We have a recipe challenge for ya this week:  2 dp, 1 ribbon, 3 brads/gems and a border.  Fun!!!  Please check out the rules on the blog and enter your creation.  Remember, there will be three prizes given away:
I've used Fairy Princess on my card today.  She is soooo adorable!  Gotta love that bling!!!
