Gill's Fairy Day Blog Hop Day 1 | Fairy Card

If you are looking for Festive Friday Blog hop, look here.

Good Morning and welcome to Gill's Fairy Day Blog hop Day 1. This is a 2 day hop for 24th and 25th of June where the line up on both days is different--I am participating on both days so come back for more tomorrow!

If you arrived here from Anita's blog then you are in the right spot! If you joined in randomly, you may start at the top of the hop here!

The theme of this hop is FAIRY Day so what we are doing on this hop is bringing together a select few people from all over the world to take part and for them to create a project with a fairy or fairies on it.

This is a differnt kind of hop as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters but if you gather all the letters then at the end of the hop on day 2 assemble them to create a fairy related word. If you then return to my blog and enter the Mr Linky at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop i will contact someone at random and ask them to email me with the word - if correct they win some lovely candy from Gill.

For my first project I did a punch-art fairy! I LOVE fairies and I love love love doing punch art!!

I love doing paper piecings with punchies!

For this card I used Bazzill Basics and DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Stack, ribbon, and EK Success [hearts, circles, word window] and Marvy [scalloped circle] Punches, and chalk and Millenium Pens.

I hope you enjoy my fairy card! I really appreciate you stopping by! I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment or follow me if you enjoyed what you see!

Now back to the hop -Gill has hidden a number of letters throughtout the hop over both days. I personally do not have a letter on my stop but there are some hidden nearby! Remember to collect all the letters from the hop (they will appear over the 2 days) and assemble to form a fairy related word then return to Gill's blog at the end of the 2 day hop and enter the Mr linky (not revealing the word) for your chance to win candy.

The next stop on the hop is : Jackie! Hop on over to see her wonderful creations!

Here is a sneak peek of what is to come tomorrow!! Can't wait to share these ideas!
