Feel better soon

I have a couple of close friends who are going through the mill at the moment, 
so a card to cheer them (hopefully) a little is the order of the day I reckon.

I was VERY fortunate to win a beautiful Memory Box frame die from the extremely gifted 
You just HAVE to go and see the fabulous cards this lady makes.
I love everything she does, so leaving a comment was happening prize or no prize! 
Here are my first two cards using that beautiful frame....
My little fairy and the greeting are from PK-121 Fairy Mini Set
Isn't she just the cutest!
I decided to colour the little leaves on the frame as my fairy looks as if she would be comfortable in a woodland setting, (and the vines reminded me of woodland too).
The base card is Kraft. LOVE Kraft card. 

Here's a close-up of that delightful little Peachy Keen fairy. 

She is, as usual, coloured with Copics. 

My next card, 

The base card for this one, is from a box of cards I bought YONKS ago.
They are graduated in colour and look really nice.
Dunno why I don't use them more!
For this card, I used my  new Die-namics Umbrella die and stamp set,
 from Sunrise Crafts a couple of days ago.
(I was lucky there, 'coz they've sold out now)!
The patterned paper on the 'brolly' is from Papermania Capsule Collection pad.
I added a bit of Glamour Dust here and there too.
Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit today.
I know I always enjoy your company. 
Have a lovely afternoon/ morning/ evening wherever you are.

Congratulations on your win. What a beautiful die. I love how you used it with that cute little elf. Your umbrella card is so adorable too. What a darling die. Glad you managed to get one before they went out of stock.
