Thought I would have a go at a different challenge today! So while I had the fairy stamp out I thought I'd make good use of her.
This challenge is called "Dotty!" from the "Allison's Suggestive Sunday Challenge"
I used Hero Arts dotty stamps to make all my backrounds then added a dotty ribbon with a dotty buckle. I then embossed some holographic mirri card with a dotty cuttlebug folder. Part of the challenge is to add dots with a gel pen so I made the fairy dotty too!
Another part of the challenge is to pierce a hole so I did and put a dotty brad in it.
I hope it is dotty enough!!!!!

Some very basic cards today but I need to build up my basic stock! For the images I used a page from my scrapbooking calendar - this page really caught my eye cause I thought it would be useful for boys and girls. The background papers are all from DCWV. some words have been cut with a quicktz revolution die.
Basic but very colourful!

Here is the box I made for Lesley's birthday. Well I suppose I didn't actually make it but I decorated it!
I started by colouring the box with dabbers in aqua - I then went round the edges with a copper dabber. Then I stamped the flourish which is a Heidi Grace stamp and covered parts of it in glossy accents. I added gems for a finishing touch. I want one now!! When I find time !

A very purple card today! I embossed the background with a cutllebug embossing folder. Then I stamped the vellum with dare to dream using a purple stazon pad. The main image of the lady is by Rubberstamped. I matted all the pieces onto holographic mirri card and added a few embellishments.

My turn to chose of challenge theme this week for the "My Time to Craft Challenge" so I chose sparkle - well I would wouldn't I?? So I used my cricut to cut the word and the image of me!! Then I added lots of sparkle with gem jewellery. I mounted the girl on brown glitter card for added extra sparkle. Hey presto a really sparkly glittery shiny card !
If you are wondering why I made a card with my own name on it - well it's for my mum to give me on my birthday!!
I love this stamp infact I love all my stamps that are designed by Linda! I have coloured this sunflower in with watercolour pencils but the colours don't show up very well on the photo! The background card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and coloured with brown stazon. Of course I finished it off with my usual

I think I like these extra Sundays - more time to craft!! So with my spare time today I have done Leonie's "Fab Friday Challenge" which this week is "Time." I started by painting a bckgound piece of paper with distress crackle paint in shabby shutters - then I stamped this with the man image from PaperArtsy. I then stamped a pocketwatch and filled it in with crackle accents. The word time was written with brads and old father was written using a dymo letra tag machine. Then I finished it all off with a brad to match and edged the atc with a silver krylon pen.
This weeks "Sunday Stamper Challenge" is "Party Hats!" So seeing as today feels like sunday again I thought I would do the challenge. I started by colouring the whole tag with adirondack pool dabber - then I stamped the image which is from paperbag studios in blue stazon. I really think this boy looks like he could do with a good party! I then stamped the wotds on a seperate piece of card and cut it out and stuck it on. I then coloured his grungeboard party hat with the dabbers and put gold flakes and gems on it. I also put gold flakes down the edge. I finished the tag off with some glossy accents on the little circle at the bottom.

Another busy day today - must be because the children are around! Anyway found time to make a card - background stamped in brown stazon. then I took two diffrent note stamps one by rubber stampede and the other by serendipity stamps both also stamped in brown stazon. These were then mounted on gold card. The card has been finished with a large bloom to match the card stock and 3 brown gems.
