Another dreary day here in Oregon, and a few more to come before we welcome some sun.

The ladies at City Crafter Challenge awarded me another of their Artist Spotlights for last week's entry - Thank you all so very very much !!! Very much appreciated.

This week City Crafter Challenge must be a 'thinking of you/get well' theme, with something digital. Both my tag and the music paper are digital downloads ! I love this idea so much I do believe I will have to make at least one more for this challenge, sometimes those themes are hard, and sometimes they just flood your brain, huh.

The lace on this card is undoubtedly true vintage, as I purchased it in a bag with some very old stuff, from an antique store. The seam binding is threaded through it.

Also of note on here is the little resin fairy. I had one of these last year on a card that generated a lot of interest. I got them in a clearance bin at my Ben Franklin for 25 cents each. I still have a few left, and they will probably pop out again here soon ! I added some Rock Candy distress stickles to her, just in case a fairy wasn't sparkly enough.
