From An Angel To A Fairy
Here is my Mid Way creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Make It Sparkle' So you can use all your glitters, stickles and anything that adds sparkle to your creations for this challenge. I have used an image called Bitty Bear Angel, but turned her into a fairy by cutting off her halo as I wanted her to stand amongst the flowers in this squeezey card. Here's a closer look:-
I absolutely adore this stamp and couldn't get a hold of it as it's really old, but Susie Sugar (team leader for a team that closed, that I was on) kindly posted her stamp out to me so I could stamp as many as I wanted, and I stamped a fair few I can tell you LOL! I would still love to get this stamp though and still look for it now.
I have never worked with these card blanks before, so this was new to me, but enjoyed experimenting with them, also acetate is something I rarely use too. I added my fairy bear and some flowers and grass to the acetate and stuck it to one of the middle concertina folds for that 3D effect. My sparkle is glamour dust to her wings, then stickles to some of the flowers and butterflies. Then finaly gems for a final bit more sparkle.
I quite like how this turned out for a first go even if it took me three times longer than normal to do a card.
We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love. Flonz, Nicecrane and Classy crafts. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your sparkle out isn't it!!!!!!
Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rule.

I hope this post goes live ok as I will be out for the day, me and my daughter have doctors appointments at 9:10 & 9:20. then me and all three kids are going into the town centre for a spot of shopping, all three are after shoes and clothes, tickets for a music festival that is in May for Scott and Jodie, but apparently you have to get them early, £78 for them, OMG they are expensive. A spot of lunch and no doubt, I will end up buying stuff I had no intention of getting, and I will come home with nothing for myself. But I know I will enjoy our day.
Then my daughter informed me that she would like to do some baking this week, Oreo cheesecake and Lemon Drizzle Tray bake, so some yummy goodies coming, my weight watchers weigh-in might be a bit off next week LOL!
Bobby wants to see the Lego movie. not my thing, but I'm sure I can manage to sit through it.
So a busy week I think while the kids are off school.
