A Little Sprinkling of Fairy Dust

Good evening all,
I hope you are well and have the sunshine where you are, it has been a scorcher here!
This evening I just wanted to share with you a bit of a different card for me. I taught a class last week called Silhouettes and used these fabulous fairy stamps by Lindsay Mason and totally fell in love with them.

The scrummy lilac paper is from Fancy Pants to which I added lots of Dusty Concord Distress Ink, the glitter was added witha Sakura Clear Glitter Pen.
Anyway I ''ll be back soon to share more crafty projects but until then Happy Crafting!

ABC Challenge X Is For............X Marks The Spot!!!

Hello to all that have not given up on me.
Huge apologies for my absence but I have been super busy helping to organise our towns Summer Fayre and unfortunately my mojo is still having a crisis. In fact as I type it sits in the corner of the room rocking gently to and fro.
Anyway I have managed to muster up enough creative juices to create a card for this weeks ABC challenge. The letter this time is X! so X Marks The Spot and we would like to see your pirate creations. We are sponsered this week by the fab Bunny Zoe so why not give it a go?
I chose to use a collection of my fabulous Magnolia Pirate images and created a tunnel card. The stunning Treaure Map DP is from an old collection by DCWV. Everything is coloured with Promarkers and I added a few Piratey buttons from my stash.

Wow can't believe it's Wednesday already and time for another fab challenge over on ABC which is sponsored by the wonderful Lily of The Valley. We are nearing the end of the alphabet and this week the letter is W is for.........Wish! (Fairytale) so think magical.

WOW 'Take Time to Enjoy Life's Simple Pleasures!'

Good evening all,
I hope you have all had a great weekend, myself, hubby and pooch spent the day with my parents and had a scrummy bbq it was a real good chill out day which was much needed. All feeling a little rubbish at the mo as after a long 6 months off work after his accident in December the consultant has informed us that hubby's foot has not mended properly and he requires another operation which could mean anything up to another 6 months off work. Hate to see hubby so frustrated and in pain and I have to say selfishly that it is not helping my crafting mojo at all so please bare with me.
Anyway this evening I want to share a very simple creation with you, a WOW card using the beautiful 'Juliet In A Field of Nasturtiums' by Stampavie.

The flowers and flourish dies are from Marianne D, the ovals are Nesties and the embossing folder is Swiss Dots from Cuttlebug. As usual I have coloured the beautiful Juliet with Promarkers and the lovely little sentiment is by Papermania.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #72 'Let's Get Sentimental'
Sweet Stampin - 'Playing in the Summer Sun'
Allsorts - #106 'It's All White'
