Today's challenge at Lili's Little Fairies is a nice easy one for you. The theme is 'Anything Goes' and we can't wait to see all your beautiful creations.

I have used the stamp 'In The Garden' for my card and I have coloured it with promarkers. At the bottom I have punched a border and added paper and satin ribbon. I then die-cut a fancy tag and stamped a simple sentiment onto it adding a couple of gems before placing it onto the border. The flowers and leaves are all punched and I have added more gems to the centres of the flowers. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Before I get onto my card I would like to apologise fornot posting my card until now. I am having BIG problems with my internet connections and can only stay connected for a couple of minutes at a time, very frustrating as you can imagine. Please bear with me if I don't manage to get around to your blogs and leave you comments.

This week at Whoopsi Daisy we have a great sketch for you to follow. For my card this week I have used one of the great boy images from the JS CD 'Daisy & Friends' by Linnie which you can get here. I have coloured him with promarkers and distressed with chalks. The digi papers I have used are from my scrapbox. I have so many scraps I am trying hard to use them rather than cut into new all the time. The border has been punched and layered with a ribbbon to finish it. I have used copper eyelets in the corners and finished it with various buttons.

I don't think anything says 'love' more than the arrival of a new baby. I have followed the above sketch and made an easel card to welcome the new baby boy. I have coloured the cute image with promarkers and paper pieced his outfit. I have punched the borders with hearts and added some satin ribbon. The two hearts have also been punched. A couple of flowers and a few pearls finish the card nicely. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Lili's Little Fairies Challenge DT (5) - Spring Colours

Delightful Challenge - Punches & Dies

It's Thursday again which means it's time for another challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies. This week we would like to see you use 'Spring Colours' on your creations.

I have used one of my favourite LOTV stamps for today's card, 'Daisy Chain'. I have coloured it with promarkers and chalk as usual. Following last week's Divas By Design sketch (I missed the actual challenge, duh!), I used some of my favourite digi papers from Nitwit Collections to cover my card. Once I had done this I added the image and circular sentiment that I layered using nesties. I layered some silk and paper daisies and added gems to the centres before placing over the corner of the image. I then punched some butterflies, stippled them with ink and added these to the corners and flowers. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Another Christmas card today, this time with a vintage feel. I have used the lovely sketch provided but turned it and added a corner. I have coloured the image with promarkers and distressed it with ink and chalk. I have also distressed the check paper in a similar fashion before adding some organza ribbon and slider to it. To finish the card I added some paper flowers with card candi centres and some punched gold leaves. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
