Elizabeth Bennet

Thank crunchie it's Friday and even better than that I'm off on my hollibobs too, yeah!!!!  Watch out Cyprus here we come.  I've just got to finish the packing then it's fun in the sun for the next 10 days.  We can't wait...

Before I go though it's challenge time over at Fussy and Fancy and the theme for this fortnights challenge is "PEARLS AND LACE".  I knew straight away which image I was going to use for this challenge and exactly who was going to receive it too.  It's my Mums birthday just after we get back from Cyprus so this will be just perfect for her and I've been wanting to play with this little beauty every since I bought her at the NEC in March.

Hope you like my inspiration and if you'd like to play along with this challenge there's more inspiration from the talented design team on the blog too.  I look forward to seeing your projects.

Materials used:
Stamp - birdcage
Border stamp - unknown (sorry)
Water coloured with distress inks:
Promarker - bluebell
Lace from my stash

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

IndigoBlu - flowers
Papertake Weekly - the sound of music (Pride & Prejudice)
Whimsy Inspires - anything goes
Creatilicious - for the girls
Crafty Ribbons - no designer paper
Milk Coffee Challenge - shabby chic/vintage
Paper Shelter - anything goes

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx

Moon Fairy

Yeah it's the end of my week and it's a bank holiday too so four days off - whoopee!!!!  I hope the sun stays out the whole time although by saying that I've probably jinxed it now.  What's everyone up to on their long weekend?  Anything exciting?  Me I think I'll just take it as it comes and just enjoy my time off.


Anyway it's the first of the month and by now you should all know what that means, and if you don't then you just don't know what you're missing!  Do you want to join in the fun too?  Come along to the Clarity Stamp Challenge to see what we get up to, you never know you could win a £50 voucher to spend on Clarity Stamp goodies.  Now where would I start mmm......

We have a new challenge for May with the theme of "IT'S ALL IN THE SENTIMENT".  We all love to make cards don't we, but mainly we focus on the images we use and not the sentiment.  So for this challenge we'd like to see the sentiments made the shining star of your projects (using Clarity stamps of course).

Here's my card for inspiration, but why not pop over to the challenge blog as well to have a look at the projects the Clarity Stamp Challenge design team have created too.  They're stunning!!!

a close up of the sentiment

Materials used:
Stamp - Moon fairy
Coloured with promarkers & flexmarkers
Wings - film & fibre
Moon - mirri card
Adirondack ink - wild plum & denim
Sentiment - silver shoon

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Joanna Sheen - recycle (take away lid for the mirri card - unused of course)
As You Like It - dies/punches (frames sentiments perfectly)
