Once Upon a Time...

...There was a blog called Make My Monday which issued a challenge for people to make a card inspired by their favourite fairy tale.  And I'm hoping that you all join in so we can live happily ever after.

For my card I've gone all Cinderella on you.  Unfortunately, the fairy godmother appears to have lost her way - story of my life!  Although I was lucky enough to meet my very own prince charming, I'm still waiting for all those helpful Disney critters to rock up and help with the housework.

I love this image from Sassy Cheryl's (unfortunately, she has just closed her shop so it's not available anymore).  I've teamed it with some backing paper with sweet little birds on.  I think there is as much chance of them helping to sew her a new frock as there is of me going to work in a pumpkin pulled by mice tomorrow.

I'm really sorry about the rubbish photo.  I've just changed my computer for a new Windows 10 thing and I am struggling like hell to get it to talk to my printer and scanner.  The printer recognises it but doesn't take kindly to the instruction to print.  The scanner (which is the same machine as the printer) appears to be in stealth mode and is hiding so well the computer can't see it.  Did I mention it was the same machine that it can see as my printer.  Grrrrr!

Anyway, I digress.  Off you go and create a good old fashioned happy ending please.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x

  3. Dawn,

    What a great writing style you have! And I love your card. I agree, there has been no fairy godmother in my life either.

    You've provided great inspiration for others for the fairy tale theme!
