Spring Fairy Wand

I had such a fun time participating in this Spring Fairy Wand swap hosted by Wendy over at Bliss Angels! We each created a wand for our parter and sent them on their way to celebrate the coming of spring. Now, if spring would just hurry itself right along and get here with the wands, that would be great! HA! I received my wand from my partner, Blanche, the other day, however, I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet. It is super fun and full of whimsy! I do have photos of the want I sent her way, however!

I wrapped the handle with decorative fabric tape and created the medallion portion from handmade papers. Two fabulous Scrolls Work stamps make up the fairy wings and the sweet girls. They are watercolored with Twinkling H20's by Luminarte for Creative Imaginations - you know how I love sparkle!!! A bit of Stickles on the fringed edges was the perfect way to finish it off!

Just a fun little swap!

I also wanted to let you know that The Hubbums and I began a stay-cation of sorts yesterday, so I am not on the computer much this week/weekend, because we are out having too much fun! YAY US!!!! Yesterday we visited the Mark Twain House down in Connecticut and today we plan to do a SUPER fun tour on SEGWAYS through the MOS in Boston, and we are also thinking about heading over to the Sam Adams brewery for their tour! FUN STUFF! It's amazing how much you never do in your own city because you live here. We are having fun!!!!!! Have a fabulous day!
