Make a Wish

Hello everyone

Just a quick card this week.  I'm finally having a break from work and have been out and about every day so far so not much time for crafting - yet!

Something a bit different from me today ....

Items used:

Stamps: sentiment - LOTV, fairy - I think it's from Personal Impressions/Lindsay Mason (I've had it a long time and can't quite remember)
Ink: Black Versamarker (for silhouette), Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick (for sentiment and on matting frame)
Black Stickles on the wings
Miri-card and gems from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black & More - Anything goes with a sentiment
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Sparkle & Shine
That Craft Place Challenge - Words
Papertake Weekly - Build it up (hope there are enough layers)
Noor Design UK Challenge - Something old, something new (old stamp, new ink)

Thanks for stopping by today and any comments you leave are very much appreciated.

It's in the stars

Hello everyone

Well, Wimbledon's now finished so I can properly concentrate on my cards.  It sooo difficult trying to colour and watch the ball go back and forth!  I'm totally confused now too because I've made a Christmas card.  I don't usually attempt to start these until September but as my mojo has kept wandering off I thought I'd have a go at a simple one and I'm quite pleased how it turned out:

Items used:

Stamp - Penny Black
Coloured with ProMarkers
Sentiment tag stamps - LOTV
Backing paper - LOTV
Twine and button - The Ribbon Girls
Stickles and glossy accents from my stash

I'm a little worried about the hedgehog second from left.  He seems to have lost his arm and it is like that on the stamp too...... (it must be invisible!)

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girls - Anything Goes with an image
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with option of Christmas
Stamping Sensations - Feature a Creature
Penny Black & More - Anything Goes with a sentiment
Crafty Calendar - Christmas in July
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Christmas in July
Live & Love Crafts - Christmas in July 
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute as a button
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Fury Friends
Without Words - Blue & Brown

Thanks for popping by today and any comments you leave are really appreciated.

Have a good week.
