Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge No. 369

Good afternoon crafty friends.

I have re-joined my old DT at Penny's Paper-Crafty.  I'm so excited to be back and designing for Penny's again.  Thank you Julie for having me back!

A new challenge starts today and it is ANYTHING GOES.  Please come along and join in the fun.

Here is my card.....

My gorgeous fairy is from A Day for Daisies and is coloured in with ProMarkers.  She is called Graceful Fairy of Flowers.  I layered up sections of her skirt to give the image some depth.  I have also used a little bit of pink glitter.

Sweet Fairy Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends.  Hope you are all well.

I just want to thank you all for the lovely messages of support from my last post.  I really appreciate them.  They really made me feel better.  I did imagine, though, that there were quite a few also suffering with depression every now and then.  Probably like me there are good and bad days and sometimes really bad days.  Depression is a lot more common than I ever thought.

Thank god for crafting as it does help and on that note, I have this card to share....

My apologies again as I don't know where this image is from.  I did win her from somewhere and printed it out to store away.  She is coloured with ProMarkers.  The papers are Echo Park Celebrate Spring.

Hello everyone.  I feel like I've been gone for so long.  I do hope you are all well and happy.  I got a new job and it's more hours so that took me away from my crafting.  But I'm in the swing of it now and hoping that I can continue to craft more now.

Also, I suffer with depression and in the last couple of months it has gradually got worse.  It has also affected my memory as I am constantly getting appointments wrong which has been so stressful!   I am on antidepressants but they seem to be not helping me anymore.  I am now going to see a Doctor and get some more help.  I think that getting back to crafting will also help!! :)

On a much cheerful note I have a card to share!

I do apologise but I can't remember where this image is from, she is however, coloured in with ProMarkers.  The papers are new and I treated myself to them because they remind me of Spring (which I hope is on the way soon).  They are Echo Park Celebrate Spring.
