Sending Fairy wishes (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm so happy to be back in Blogland after over a month off. I was overseas on a European family trip of a lifetime, it was absolutely wonderful and we had such a great time. 

So now I'm back and I have a few cards to show you. This one is created with a Saturated Canary image, isn't she sweet? I've noticed Saturated Canary have now closed since I've been away which is such a shame, I'm glad I bought a few more images before I left.
