Simply Betty Facebook Challenge

My entry into the Simply Betty Facebook Challenge. And boy was this one a challenge. You get the image for free on their Facebook page to do the challenge. That was the easy part. They also want you to do a background, but not with paper and stamps. Now there the challenge started. I don't draw. I was going to do clouds, but Hubby tells me to not follow the rest - er, so what do you want me to do. Grass -  er, OK, but what about the rest of the space. Although I think I am glad I didn't go with all clouds, that wasn't going my way. But I think it turned out OK, well that is until I put stickles on her wings. It seems to have bled a wee bit. But I'm not doing it again, so here she is. The papers are again from my old large pad by Papermania, a Lili of the Valley sentiment and Memory Box die.

Tiddly Inks sweet stampin

For today's card I have followed the sketch over at Sweet Stampin. I have used this sweet Mermaid image from Tiddly Inks, so thought as the theme over at the Tiddly Inks challenge was Summertime, this would be perfect. I also want to enter it into the first challenge over at A Creative Romance, which is a nice easy one of anything goes. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Here without you by Krystal Hartley. The doily behind the image is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs. The shells are dies from Marianne D and the clouds are a Memory Box die. I printed the sentiment out and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.

The Sugar Bowl 104 #2

Another entry into The Sugar Bowl Challenge, where they have an anything goes theme. This time a lil black and white fairy. I so can't wait for the new  fairy release. The sneak peaks so far are awesome. The papers are from an old rather large pad from \papermania - do crafts. Thought I had better start using some up. So I might just have a few black and white cards showing soon. The sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp and a few card candy to finish. I added a little stickles to the wings for some sparkle. Of course the image is from Sugar Nellie - Hazel  from the homegrown range. I am also entering this into The Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge where they want to see you use a Fairy.

I also want to enter it into the challenge over at Sketchy Colours where the theme is black, grey and white.

The Sugar Bowl 104

For my Sugar Bowl entry this time round, I have used this super sweet Leanne Ellis stamp. Again the theme is anything goes - I think I can just about manage that. I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. I wasn't too sure with this sketch at first, but as usual, when I started putting everything into place it came together nicely. Of course, the image is by Sugar Nellie and the papers are GCD studios - Ella Blue. I printed out the text and used MFT button dies and Whimsy corner die. I added a few pearls, twine and a bit of ribbon to finish.
