Spots & Stripes

Hello bloggers, its Thursday so that means it is Lili's Little Fairies Challenge!  This week it is spots and stripes which are a favourite of mine, not to wear just to craft with!  When I started this card I decided to do the girl with a blue dress, which turned out green and I ended up doing green and purple, one of my favourite colour themes.  It was not planned like that but just developed! 

So come on over and join in all the fun at Lili's Little Fairies, looking forward to seeing you there!

The Lili image is coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens.

Papers are Papermania Capsule Collection - Spots & Stripes Pastels.  

The heart is a Memory Box die.

Everything else is from stash.

Where Has The Sun Gone!!!

And I wish it would come back!  After the glorious Bank Holiday when we were walking round in short sleeves and feeling quite hot, we are now back to the wind, rain, bitterly cold and wearing long sleeves!

Never mind, at least my house is extra clean due to staying indoors and not soaking up the sun!

This image is Mulberry Wood - Birthday Wishes and is coloured with Promarkers.  The sentiment comes from the same set of stamps.  The pink card is from stock.  

Sorry for the quality of the picture, my photo skills do not get any better!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments Designs - Use a Sentiment
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes with optional extra to use two stamps

Anything But A Card

Well, this is my second card (or not as this week's challenge is not a card!) as a Lili's Little Fairy! When I saw that the challenge was anything but a card I groaned inside, I don't usually make anything but cards, occasionally a box to fit the card in but other than that, nothing but I must say I enjoyed the challenge and came up with this:

The Lili image has been coloured with Spectrum Noir pens.  I also used Anita's glaze on the balloon, it was still wet when I took this photo and that's why it looks like a blob!  

The papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics and the red card is from stash.

The paper bag is from Creative Crafting World and the die is from Quixotic Paperie.

So everyone, come on over to Lili's Little Fairies and join in the fun, hope to see you there!

We Have Sun!

Yes we have actually had glorious sunshine today!  Been warm too which is an added bonus!  Roly has been out sunbathing and he just will not come in when the sun is shining, he is just so happy I just cannot make him come indoors, unless it gets too hot, then I have to carry him inside! 

I have done the following card for a few challenges and this cute little bear makes me think of sunny days:

The Crafters Companion image and sentiment is from the Mulberry Wood series and called Smile and has been coloured with Promarkers.  The card is from stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting Musketeers - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Anything Goes
Less is More - Colour and the colours I chose are yellow and violet
