Have a Magical Day!

I have a little girl. My little girl loves princesses. One day her big brother tried to tell her that princesses are just pretend. No, no, no big brother, I said. There are REAL princesses! And that is how I got my kids interested in watching the Royal Wedding, LOL! But more on that in a minute, first I have to show you a little fairy princess card I made:

I created the little castle by cutting strips of patterned paper and simply gluing them to a scrap of white cardstock in a castle-y shape. The little fairy princess is from the Hero Arts Magical Castle set, isn't she sweet?

I decorated the castle with some little punched out squares, and used my MFT Banner Day die to make the tower tops. Of course I had to bling those up a bit, too!

Once I had all the pieces in place on the white cardstock, I cut around the whole thing. Then I traced it onto another bit of cardstock, cut out and scored the top before gluing it on as a card back.

Just a fun little card on this magical princess day. :-) And speaking of that... yup, we surely watched the wedding this morning! My kids woke up just before The Kiss(es). They plopped down together and waited for the prince and princess (I prefer to call them that, Duke & Duchess just isn't as much fun!) came out on the balcony. Note the Cinderella dress on my little princess. Yup, she slept in it!

After The Kiss, we sat down for some scones and then colored this fun little princess kiss coloring page. :-)

I can't help it, I'm totally smitten with this happy couple. They are just magical!

Have a nice weekend!
