Saturated Canary Challenge - Sweater Socks Fairy

Hello my lovelies how are you? I'm running a tad late because I forgot to schedule my post & we've been busy building a run & hutch for our new 'French Lop' rabbits for Natalie, Payton & Arjay ;0)

Anyhoo's its time for a brand new challenge over at Saturated Canary & the theme this time issssssss...
.........I loved this challenge as soon as I saw it as I lurve wings & I had my image all planned out until...........yep until Krista released those gorgeous 'Fairies'........well I had to use one of those!! The only problem was..........'Which one????'.........
I chose 'Sweater Socks' Fairy & the reason is is because I have a HUGE sock addiction, seriously I'm addicted to them, my socks always have to match what I'm wearing lol. I have a huge addiction not just for me, no, no......for all of us!! My youngest only wears black 'Simpson' socks.........he has over 30 pairs lol. You dont want to know how many Natalie has...........although plain socks just bore the pants off me :0(

Anyhoo's now you know how weird I am............ I will tell you what I've used on this card ;0)
I made sure there was an abundance of wings on this creation lol.

Joy Crafts gorgeous 'Butterfly Border' die covered in Shabby White & 'Aged Wine' Fran-Tage.
All the gorgeous flowers are all a selection of Prima.

The gorgeous Fairy I coloured with Copics & added glitter dust to her wings. I also dotted the background & added fran-tage around the edge.
Colours used are..............
E11, E21, E00, E000
E29, E27, E23, E21
V99, V95, V93, V91, V000
C3, C1, C00
E55, E53, E51, V95, V91 & Blender pen

The gorgeous papers are Prima which I got from My Crafty Heart & I inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched them. I added 2 different layers of lace, both from my stash. Fence is Magnolia & the small clock is a Marianne die. Feather butterfly from my stash. I've also added gorgeous 'Say it in crystals - Roses' by Prima in the 2 corners. The small butterflies I made using a small punch.

We hope you will play along with us in our 'Winged Things' challenge & if you need that instant Saturated Canary fix then head over to here............where you will also find the gorgeous new fairies & other winged beauties ;0)

Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & leaving the lovely comments, they always cheer me up ;0)

Wish upon a star birthday girl

Hello lovelies how are you all? I meant to post this this morning but have been trying to get a French Lop rabbit for Natalie & my granchildren. 

Anyway this is a card I have made for Payton's 2nd birthday. Yes I know its not until just after the new year  but I recently brought some LOTV stamps & I saw this stamp (which I still didn't have) & brought it purposely for my granddaughter.

This image looks like a little ballerina girl dancing with a wand to me. Payton adores music & dancing, as soon as she hears music she starts to dance & she especially loves clubbing music...........she's soooooo like her nanna wooo hoooooo ;0)

I've used La La Land's 'Heart Banner' & added letters to each banner to spell 'LOVE'. I also added a 'Clay Heart' which I gave the Fran-Tage treatment with Shabby Pink.

I used the fabulous Joy Crafts 'Butterfly Border' & fran-Taged it with shabby pink.

I used some pink tulle from my stash & made a gathered trim for behind the image. Also made a double bow with pink seam binding & added the gorgeous MF 'Glass Rose Button', these are so so pretty!!

The stamp is called 'Wish Upon A Star' & I coloured her with Distress Markers. I have to say I really enjoyed colouring this & is probably gonna be my fave LOTV stamp :0)
Also added 'Stardust' stickles.

The papers I've used are the utterly gorgeous Maja Design Sofiero. This one is 'Royal Summer Residence' & I inked the edges with walnut & machine stitched them. I added 'Cluny Fan Lace', some Melissa Frances Pearls & a MF 'Resin Corner'. Doily under the image is from my stash.

Well I'm well prepared on one of Payton's birthday cards lol. I couldn't resist colouring this little lady up ready for our wee princess.

Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by I'm slowing catching up with you all, will be round later.

Holy Light

Hello everyone how are you? Well I'm finally here with that Christmas card I was gonna post........I cant even remember when I said now lol. Anyway I've finally remembered to post it & its using one of my new stamps that I got the other week.

This is 'Holy Light' from the latest release at LOTV. These are all sooooooooo yummy!!!
Isn't she so darn cute!!! Of course as its a Christmas Card I had to give it lashings of Snow-Tex & Stickles ;0)

I added Tim Holtz On The Edge 'Snowflake' die thingy at the top. Covered the snowflakes in Snow-Tex then added 'Stardust' Stickles here & there.

I coloured her in Tim Holtz distress markers, I lurve seeing LOTV in distress inks, I enjoyed colouring her.
I also added stickles to her wings, her head-dress & the flame on the candle. I added Snow-Tex all around the edges as well.

The trees are from my Marianne die &.....yep they got snow covered too & I also added a couple of
 MF 'Pearls' to the bottom of each. The ribbon & lace are from my stash.

I used Marianne 'Holly Leaves' die & inked it up with Anitique Linen to match with her dress ;0) The flower is Prima & I added some sparkle to it. The corner die is a Joy Crafts die.

The papers I've had for ages & I think they are Pink Paislee. I've edged them all with Walnut distress ink & machine stitched all around them. The sentiments I cant remember where they are from, the Holiday Greeting I stamped in Brown Memento then aged the card with Pumice Stone, distressed it & layered it over some corrugated card painted with gesso.

Well I think thats it from me I saw that LOTV have a Christmas Challenge on so gonna pop it over there ;0)

Also to let you know that the uber talented Krista has released 4 new 'Fairies' in her shop here, they are so yummy. Here is one of them below...........
