The time has so got away from me that it was Thursday midnight before I remembered that the challenge was starting today... didn't leave me a whole lot of time but there's always enough time for an easel card I reckon, lol. Luckily this image "Butterfly Fairy", available here, was sitting printed and ready to colour so she's "it"! Allsorts Challenges has Fairies and Crafty Creations has Things With Wings for their challenge, so I'm entering there.
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Fine and Sunny collection, nice and Summery, he he; I'm entering Little Red Wagon, My Mums Craft Shop and Crafty Little Fairies Summer Challenges as well as Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
The white mats are cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals, using glittered cardstock, the blue cardstock is from my stash.
I followed the fab sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, and paper pieced and popped up on foam dots the clouds in the top right corner to fit with the sketch, sorta kinda, lol. I added Stickles to the one cloud, it's nearly the same as the EP. Bunny Zoes Crafts want to see our Layers, here's mine :-)
The flowers are from the Ribbon Girl and Mulberry Crafts, the organza ribbon is from my stash, I smothered a piece of Card Candi in Stickles and added it to the centre. Divas by Design, Paper Crafting Journey and Craft Your Passion have Ribbons and/or Flowers challenges so I'm entering them.
The inside uses more of the Fine and Sunny paper and the strip at the top was one of the die cuts that came in the pad. The sentiment is computer generated, if you'd like it grab it here or from my freebies page, don't forget to click on it to open before downloading to give a better version :-)
Tuesday Throwdown, Paper Creator Crafts, That Craft Place, Through the Craftroom Door, Papertake Weekly, Aud Sentiments and Catch The Bug all have Anything Goes Challenges running so I'm entering them too.
That's it for today's card, check out the rest of the Design Team's work, fab as always, and I hope you get to join in the challenge with a great prize from the Cutting Café
I seriously promise to be back soon with one of the cards from my drafts - though I have made my first crossover card and I'm so pleased with it that it may jump the queue, lol
Talking of Crossovers, one of the things that has taken up my time, along with continuing health issues, (sick babies not just me, lol) and it being the end of the Financial Year (every Bookkeeper's stressful time) is MY NEW CAR. Here's a "few" pics taken at the car yard before the plates ... oh, and the sidesteps - I am short and the car is not, lol - were put on
Now, I should say at this point, that as mentioned in a post some time ago, new car not my idea! Hubby has been angling for a new car for me (he got one in May!) for two YEARS. Mine was 10 years old, but only has 77000 km on the clock, and is immaculate; it sits sad and neglected pending sale on our spare driveway, poor thing. I've got to say, the new one is pretty spiff.
This is my first ever new car, it has all the fruit; leather interior, panaromic sunroof, Sat Nav, Blue Tooth and so on... all I've got to do is learn how to use it all, lol! and it's a dream to drive. I am, despite myself EXCITED!! We got a 7 seater so we can take the family out with us - but as the booster seats have to go in the middle row, it's short straws for the third row, lol. It's a toss up between the short (my folks) who fit better and the fit (my sons and DIL) who can actually get in easier!! We haven't even got baby seats yet, so no rush for straws, lol.
|That's 10 km on the clock... just over 5 miles!!!|
Anyway, I really will be back in a few days, until then Happy Crafting, Donna
