Since the cards that are going out in the mail tomorrow are already inside their envelopes and ready to do and this is going to a friend that doesn't tat (I thought it might, LOL), I figured I'd share with you all what I've done... :-D
I messed up with the flower on her headband... It was dark and I didn't realize that it was a different thread than what I'd used on this card.
So, here's more about it: The tatting is done in an unknown LizBeth size 40 thread and LizBeth white size 40. ;-) My friend sent me a whole bunch of Cicely Mary Barker cards a few years ago. Well, I haven't mailed stuff out like I did then (i.e. stopped pen-palling... THAT's a lost art form, not tatting!) Anywho, when a beautiful soul sent me this thread, I immediately thought of this card... I think it matches SO well! I really could not resist putting them together. A BIG thank you to Wanda for inspiring this and to Roni and "R" for providing the materials that made this come together. Yeah, sure, it may not be perfect, but I actually like it! LOL. Now, I just need to make some more and find threads to match the other cards! LOL. :-D (I have two more with this fairy going right now... have to tat more flowers for them, then I think I have three or four of this one.... And a bunch of others! YAY!!!).
Yeah, yeah, it's not much but I'm just so pleased to see my tatting being somewhat useful! (My mom wants one like this to give to a neighbor for a thank you card...).
