I am NOT Smarter than a 5th Grader! (Nor a 3rd Grader for that Matter!!)

Oh Dear! As I am trying to get creative at my craft desk I am distracted by the new Wii game my dear Hubby bought home today! Big Brain Academy Wii Degree!! Well we all enrolled and did our little tests!! Mumzy first, then Owen - 8, (yes he beat me!), then Jayden - 10, (who beat Owen and Me!), then Dadzy (who also beat me!! but came between the boys!!) Hmmm, my thinking is that their reflexes are better than mine! Yes that's it! I am more suited to the delicate art of Cardmaking. All that colour matching, precision cutting, steady handed placements! etc. Yes that is a much better skill than click click click I am the fastest (and more accurate) and therefore brainiest!! Convincing story? Maybe not. Anyway, I sulked off back my desk and made some more cards.

I had no inspiration after suffering a two day migraine-a-thon this week, so went to have a cuppa with my friend Angie, who had made two gorgeous cards that she cased from a card on kwernerdesign blog. I bought one home to make up and when I reached up to get something off the shelf above my desk a fairy that I had already made up fell onto my card!! Screaming (as fairies do) "don't I look great with these colours!!" So I made up a card and went from there! That is how these four were born!! I think they are cute! same sort of style two colour themes. So tell me - What do you think???

These cards have been made using the gorgeous 3D paper sheets by Morehead Designs, and these cute fairies are die cut so you just pop them out and stick them together (but I did do a little trimming here and there as I hate untidy edges!!) Very time consuming but beautiful!!

Anyway, I had better toddle!! I hope you enjoy these cards. I must go and start organising kids school stuff!! Swimming lessons start tomorrow!!

I have heaps of other cards to load and show!! I found a stack the other day that I hadn't scanned yet!! and I thought I hadn't been very productive!! LOL

Till next time
