Today I have 2 new designs to show you All! x


Hello All! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and are set for the new week!


I have been awaiting this week with anticipation!

Tomorrow I will be showcasing my Project for the wonderful new Challenge Blog at Dreamtime Designs Craft Challenge! Yay

So please come back tomorrow for a look!


Now for my Cards for today!

Firstly there is a new challenge at the US Besties Challenge Blog - Wings

And here is my DT Card

I love this cute new fairy by Sherri Baldy she is available HERE
I enjoyed using this colour scheme of Pink, yellow and turquoise.

I have coloured her with my Promarkers and added dotted swirls to the background and lots of Stickles for glitter.

I used the Marianne Creatable leaf flourish and lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and my Stash.

Butterflies by Joy Crafts and Tim Holtz. And below is a top view that shows the folds of the card.

I am entering this card in the following:
Secondly is the New Challenge at Scrapbook Stamp Society - Anything Goes
Here is my DT Card
The Design team used images by Sheila Wolk this one is available HERE
This cute little baby mermaid image was a real challenge to colour and took about 2 hours. I was quite happy with the result!

I haven't used a lot of embellishment on this card as the image was quite large and didn't leave much room. But I don't think it needed much as it is colourful and I used a patterned paper on the background as well.
To embellish I used some of my hand dyed seam binding, some flowers and a cute fish charm and heart pins.

I am entering this card in the following:
I hope you enjoy todays cards!
I will see you back tomorrow for the big reveal.
Yours in craftiness! lol

The delicate colors of your card beautifully enhance the sweet fairy image. Love the bling, flowers and butterflies - they add nice texture and great dimension. Thanks for sharing your project with us at 613 Avenue Create.

Both of these are absolutely darling! I love the intricate fold & die cut edge on the first card, and the image on the second is just precious. Thanks SO much for coming to play with us at the Drunken *hiccup* Stampers this week :)
