Too early for a Christmas card?

So I thought I was back after my hiatus and someone (eh hem, mom!) kept me busy pretty much every weekend in October - productive and busy weekends.  By the time I got home, I had no motivation to get anything posted here.  But I think I'm really back this time ;)

I taught a little class at a local store today (Farmhouse Memories), and I had some extra images that I colored so decided to create something new with it.  For the class, I came up with this card (sorry the pics so dark):

I didn't want to do too much fussy cutting for a class, but that adorable image was just something I was dying to fussy cut.  When I got home, I dug out some supplies and got to work.  I used some of the same elements from the first card, but altered it just slightly to create my new card:

She's just as beautiful as I thought she would be all cut out :D  And what's a fairy without some sparkle?  I finished her off by brushing her wings with some Wink of Stella.... sparkly!!

And since I finally broke out my Copics, I'm playing along with MarkerPop's bi-weekly challenge (it's been too long!).

Thanks for stopping by!
