I couldn't get a decent photo to save my life despite the weather being bright, but I hope you get the idea with this. The plant image and sentiment were stamped onto a panel before attaching to the card front which had been scored with a double frame. After that, a halo of glitter and three gems were added, along with...
... this little chap! Now, you may be thinking you haven't seen him in the catalogue, but I bet you have. He was just in disguise as a sledger boy in the Welcome Christmas set!
Yes, he's the one on the right and I've often thought that his scarf could easily be extended into wings. I stamped him in Sahara Sand and then coloured him with markers, giving him a tunic with a belt and some pixie boots, and glittered his wings for that extra magical look.

Making today's card brought a whole lot of memories flooding back for me: When my daughter was very small she was given a book that opened out into a pop up castle. She was fascinated by the little card soldiers that went with it and that started me drawing, colouring and cutting out little figures for her to play with. When I mentioned this to my daughter she disappeared upstairs and returned with a boxful of the little characters - she has kept them! They were never made to last of course and there are limbs missing but here's one that remained intact - I remember he was called Blueberry Buttons!
Thank you for joining me on my magical mystery tour today! I'll be much more sensible tomorrow (or maybe not!)
