My sweet image is coloured with promarkers and I have added glitter.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I think she would look good on a Christmas card too, what do you think?
I covered my base card with silver mirri card and added some embossed panels that I inked with distress ink.  I then added two layers of ribbon up the centre (you can just about see them), and then added a bow.  Next I added some handmade ribbon flowers and punched leaves.  A few pearl gems finish the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

I have used an old, but favourite, fairy image on my card this week.  I coloured her with promarkers and added stickles to her wings.  I covered the base card with a paper covered panel using kraft card.  I then added another paper covered panel at the bottom.  The leaves have been punched from kraft card and I have added green and yellow distress ink.  I also added stickles to the centre of the flowers.  A simple sentiment finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Time for a new challenge at Whoopsi Daisy and this week the them is anything 'Fall/Autumn' related.

I have used the colours of Autumn on my card.  The image has been coloured with promarkers and chalk.  I didn't have the colour I wanted for my ivy leaves so I made my own background paper using alchohol inks.  I then die-cut the leaves and attached them with foam pads.  The letters have also been die-cut with memory box dies.  A punched butterfly topped with pearls finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Whoo Hoo!!!  Time for the first challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and to mark the occasion some of Team B (Pink Fairies) are joining Team A (Blue Fairies) this week to give you lots of inspiration.

We're kicking off with the theme 'Cute And Cuddly Critters', so nice and easy.  Don't forget that you can now use any make of stamp or digi to enter the challenge, so why not join in the fun!  
Check out our new look blog too!  The address remains the same for now, but we will let you know when it changes.

We are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and The Ribbon Girls this week.

OK, on to my card.  As you can see I have made a Christmas card using one of the mini masterpiece sheets which comes pre-coloured.  Good job, as I can't colour animals at all.  Having cut and layered my image I added flock, glitter and liquid pearls to it for added interest.  The base card has been simply layered and a punched border topped with spotty ribbon added.  The snowflakes have been die-cut and have pearl centres.  A stamped sentiment finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Whoopsi Daisy Challenge DT - Use Texture


Challenges

Bearly Mine (101) - Use A Digi
Creative Creations (18) - Christmas
Natalie And Amy (13) - Embossing
ABC - Anything Goes
Lothian Crafts - Anything Goes/Dies

Time for a new challenge at Whoopsi Daisy and this week we would like to see you 'Use Texture' on your creations.
When I saw this little cutie I knew she would look great on a Christmas card, so I have made one.  Mind you, looking at it again, I think this card could also be used for a winter birthday - two for the price of one!

I started by adding an embossed and lightly inked panel to my base card.  Next I coloured my image with promarkers and die-cut it.  While it was still in the die I inked around the image.  I then added a bit of glitter before attaching with foam pads.  I did the same with the stamped sentiment.  The holly and snowflake has been die-cut from glittery handmade paper and gems added.  A ribbon and ribbon slider charm finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Here is another card I made with the same pad.  
 
Following the great sketch I covered my base card adding a punched border topped with gingham ribbon to match the paper.  I then added my decoupaged image.  Next, I stamped the bunting across the corner and coloured it with promarkers.  I then stamped, coloured and cut out the sentiment and parcels before attaching with foam pads.  Finally, a little bow finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
