Housework Fairy

Don't we all wish housework fairies really existed? Some people are fortunate enough to have cleaning services or persons, which is pretty close to having a housework fairy (except for having to pay them). My Mother had cleaning persons. I didn't. It's not that I like to clean (I don't), but I dislike paying someone else to do it even more. Thus, a nice (free) fairy would be a mighty handy thing to have -- ah, such is the stuff of which dreams are made, right?

This week the challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil ( is "Flowers, Flutters, Fairies, Fancy Fold" and we could use one, any or all for our card. I wanted to make a birthday card for a girlfriend, so I chose this little image. The inside of the card reads: "I was going to send you the Housework Fairy for your birthday, but she kept eluding me (if you don't believe me, just look at my house). Hope you have a happy birthday anyway!"

I am also entering this card in the 2Sisters challenge at as the theme for their weekly challenge is Fairies and I'm submitting it at
