Believe in the Magic of Fairies

I love blog hopping - it's like turning left on the freeway
instead of taking the usual right hand turn - you just
don't know where you're going to end up. And that's
exactly what happened today - I turned left and ended
up at a brand new challange blog - Just Magnolia.
The challenge - create a card using
the sketch, using any image you like -
as long as it's a Magnolia!!!
I go through months of learning a new
technique and then it appears on most
of my cards lol!!!
Last month it was hat pins - this month
it's hand made quilled flowers.
It's awesome how a few twists and turns
of paper can turn into a flower.
I've got a lot to learn but I've been really
pleased with what I've done so far.
My friend Moi has given me some fantastic
instructions for the roses -
I've tried heaps of different techniques,
but these are by far the best.

I love this Fairy image, available from
Roses on Paper. She looks so cheeky
and cute - and I can just imagine her
dancing in my rose garden at midnight.
