In Dreams....

Hi everyone,

Here's a topper I've made using one of my favourite vintage images which I bought a while back on Etsy.

I have stamped and cut out some beautiful Anna Griffin flowers as part of the embellishments and have die cut the others with my trusted Magnolia DooHickey die.

The papers are Bo Bunny (including the little butterflies which I cut out)and the sentiment is Tim Holtz.

I was inspired by the following challenges for this project:

Deep Ocean - Pastel Colours

Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Let's Get Shabby - Colour Challenge

Daring Cardmakers - Just Because

ABC - B is for Butterflies

Thanks so much for stopping by today :o)

Fairy Silhouette

Hello everyone!

It's so lovely to be posting a card today.... it's been a while that's for sure! I have had so little crafting time for the past six months due to work commitments and being very busy with two kids! Not complaining about the latter though as they are growing up so fast.... twelve and sixteen now.... and every minute is so precious to spend with them before they become adults and get on with their own lives!

So I made a card using one of a set of pretty Fairy Silhouette stamps by Lindsay Mason Designs which I picked up a while back on Ebay. The dies are a mix of Memory Box, Magnolia and Joy Crafts and I think the paper is MME. The sentiment is also Magnolia and the cream and white flowers are from Wild Orchid. I added a touch of doodling to the die cuts and glittered the fairy's wings.

I noticed that the OCC Challenge today is silhouette's which is very convenient (smile) so I'm entering my card there.

I am also entering Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Fairies and Angels and Flutterby Wednesdays which has an open theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
