Fairies & Ladybirds

Welcome on this hot and sunny day, it's football for me again today, plenty of sun cream and bottled water I think.   It's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'In The Garden' I used this image and went with in my mind fairies at the bottom of the garden.  I fancied a change and did some water colouring for this, I even went as far as die cutting my flowers then colouring them with water colours too.  Lots of distress inks and a bit of lace finished this off nicely.

We have sponsorship this Month from

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Things With Wings'  I went with this cute little Fairy babe, the inspiration for my colour scheme and papers was the ladybird he is holding.  Yes I have called it a him as I think it's a little boy.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Stamp Addicts, Marianne Designs  Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Two gorgeous fairies, Tracy! As soon as I saw your CI card, I had a "wish I'd made that" moment! That fairy is one of my favourite CI stamps, and the scene you've set her in is just gorgeous. Love it!

Gorgeous cards Tracy and I love the CI stamp that you’ve used on your first card. It’s not one that I’m familiar with and I love how you’ve coloured it. The flowers look stunning and the background and embellishments look great too. That’s another one for my CI wish look what you’ve done lol :). Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts as it’s quite rare for us Yorkshire folk! X
