Fairy Wishes

Good morning to all my great followers and  friends. Yes its that Wednesday again doesn't it come around quickly or is it just me. Today is the launch at Crafting by Designs of our hugely popular monthly Anything Goes Challenge.

We have two great sponsors this month both favorites of mine.

I have to say deciding on my image for this challenge was a difficult one both companies have the most amazing designs. I finally went for All Dressed Up Stamps Fairy Magic and she's a delight I really enjoyed making this card.
