I'm a Lollipop Lady!!!

I made a New Year Resolution to take the big plunge and just apply for DT jobs and guess what! I got the first two I applied for - I was so excited when I got onto the team at UnstampaBelles  BUT.....drum roll please, now I am a Lollipop Lady as well!

The first Challenge for Lollipops is for fairy bread! That is the bread with 100s and 1000s sprinkled onto the butter on it! Just like in the picture!

 An additional challenge is to add wings (fairies have them so the bread should too ;-))

I will enter this in the Southern Girls Challenge - #37 Magic and Mystery

In my childhood, white bread always had a creamy look, was from a high tin and had a thick crunchy crust. It was usually spread thickly with yellow butter, and the 100s and 1000s sort of melted into the butter and coloured it again. We only had fairy bread for birthday treats - and usually only for my birthday as the boys weren't into fairies!! So my colours are not so much pink and green and blue on white, as yellow and green and red all melted into a sort of creamy yellowish/white background!

The card used for this is Stampin'Up's Pool Party, and I combined it with DP from Bo Bunny's Ad Lib 6 x 6 pad. The image is a fairy from Lili of the Valley coloured up with Copics, and cut out with the trusty Cuttlebug and a label die from Spellbinder. The backgrounds are also cut out using different dies from Spellbinder.  The ribbon is SU's stitched Poppy Parade, the flourish is from a Cheery Lyn die, the sentiment is from Verve's Enjoy set and the sprinkles are from Annabelle's Stamps. I used Stickles on the wings and the fairy's hair and the flower.  I also inked around the top die cut with SU Poppy Parade. Hope you like it!!

This one doesn't have the inking! See the difference!
