Fairy Friend

Wahoo for another challenge at One Stop Crafts. This week are sponsored by the AMAZING A Day for Daisies. I love her artistic style and all the images are adorable. Stop over at OSCC to see what my awesome design team members created with the images. We'd love you to join in our For the One I Love challenge and if you have A Day for Daisies images we'd LOVE to see how you use them. There are lots of love/valentine challenges going on right now, so join in the tummy butterflies season and create a card for the one you love.

My Creation
I paper pieced my fairy's dress and wings and then added depth and shimmer with SU markers and spica  glitter pens. TIP: To keep your ribbon ends from fraying, lightly touch them to a flame. The heat melts the fibers and NO more frays! Be careful though or your hard work could go up in flames!

Sparkly Skaters

Another Christmas card that didn't get finished until after the holiday; and another one ready for this year! I might have to leave out my Christmas stamps all year just to get on top of things by the actual holiday. I'm SO excited Priscilla and her awesome DT are back with the Midnight Madness Sketches. This isn't the new one, it's one of very few that I had yet to catch up on. Their challenge is now monthly so I really have NO reason not to stay current. Wish me luck!

Scrappy Butterfly

This card has been sitting in pieces, literally since it's made of scraps LOL, on my desk for awhile. I finally had a chance to put the finishing touches on it and get it posted on my blog. I don't often create cards without getting inky, but this was a fun way to use up some scraps and a fluttery butterfly.
