A whimsy thank you

Hello All!  It's a busy Saturday here and I am still playing catch up after my mini vacation.  I have a fun Whimsy Stamps card to share with you today.  I volunteered to make the thank you cards that will accompany the class gift for all three of my daughter's teachers.  This is the second one I created.
I used this fun digi, Strawbeary fairy, she's so sweet! I just love her!
She pairs perfectly with this nook and pantry paper from basic grey.  I colored her with copics and added lots of sparkle to her wings.  The ribbon is SU red riding hood satin from my stash.  I also added a fun teacher charm.  The sentiment is from whimsy as well, it is the new ticket sentiments.   Finally I did some sewing, added pearls and wild orchid flowers.

In other news......
I'm looking for a few more hoppers.
I am organizing a card drive hop to help raise awareness about a young girl in my community.  She fell ill to a terrible disease this Easter and can really use some sunshine from all of us.  HERE IS THE LINK to her story.
If you'd like to help me by being a part of the hop please email me at ebailey1000 @  It will actually be 4 hops each lasting a week beginning on Tuesday, June 22 and ending July 13.  If you can't join in, please hop back on the 22nd for all the details on how to mail your card to Bella.  Thank you:)
