Lucky me!

What a humbling day I have had today. After coming home from work and dealing with everyones day I hopped on the computer to find Melissa from Moe Creations had honoured me with my very first blog award. Thanks Melissa!

To top off the day I was also honoured with being the featured designer over at Project Tuesday this week. Thanks girls, I look forward to the next challenge.

Gotta Love Pink!

I can't seem to go far away from the colour pink, although at times I do try!
I've created a flap card with another image I won from Prairie Fairy Designs, this one's called Teatime. I've coloured with copics and used a Martha Stewart punch for the decorative top on the flap. Ovals cut with Spelbinders die and edged with lace. These papers are from Wild Rose Studio's, Candy Floss paper pack.

I am entering this card into the following challenges,

Card for Fairy Fun Fridays

On Friday the 13th of this month, I was lucky enough to win Top Spot over at Fairy Fun Fridays for one of my cards. (see here) I was so excited, it made my day, so a big thankyou to those lovely ladies for choosing me. xx
Aswell as my prize of 3 designs I also get to be their featured designer this week. The theme is 'Punch It' and here is the card I created with one of Prairie Fairy Designs images, Barrel Planter.

This card uses a Martha Stewart border punch, two different butterfly punches aswell as Spellbinders die 'Labels 3' & corner decorations from Shapeabilities Pendants, 'Kaleidoscope' and the Slice machine for the white scroll/flourish across the top. Paper is from the new Papermania paper pad 'Summer Bloom' and I have also used gorgeous vintage seam binding and Kaisercraft pearls.

Edwin card

 
At last I'm begining to get back into my papercrafting, it seems like months more than weeks. I have had a lot going on and haven't felt very inspired. This is the first time I have used a stamp from my Magnolia stamp kit which arrived a couple of weeks ago. When I first saw this image, the words 'hang in there' came to mind, here is 'Dangling Edwin' from the new Bon Voyage collection. I've also used the rope, pelican and text stamp.

I have made this card for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge #16, the theme is to use an Edwin stamp.
 Here is the inside, I put the text inside the lifesaving ring image and coloured it aswell as the pelican with copics. The 'tide always turns' text has been stamped. Edge was done with a fiskars punch.

Here you can see how I've used the acetate and added a Hambly Screen Prints white rubon and some Papermania rhinestones.
