Fairy and Unicorn Challenge

Hello again, this morning I have the privilege of posting for a new challenge The Fairy and Unicorn Challenge Blog.   This time we would love to see your mythical creature makes so all those fairies, mermaids, witches, wizards, unicorns (this is just to give you an idea of what to use) you have hiding in your stash dust them off and show us them all. 

I choose to use some flower fairy foiled decoupage I have had in my stash for a long time. I think she came from Create and Craft. I used a shaped Kanban card blank I have had forever, embossed a free folder from a magazine onto the blank. 
If you look closely this folder was actually for Christmas but I felt the snowflakes in the corners were generic enough to be considered flowers as well. 

 I used some distress ink to highlight the embossing, some paper and ribbon that came with the flower fairy kit to cover the base of the card. Like many of you I am sure I have an abundance of paper flowers in my stash so I decided to use some of them to decorate the bottom of the easel and use a large paper rose for the stopper.

I don't often make tags but as I was clearing up , yes it does happen sometimes I realised I had missed a layer of the decoupage, ooops, rather than throw it away I decided to use some of the paper scraps t create a tag. A little ribbon and all done.

Please visit the blog to see the fabulous makes by the other design team ladies and we would love to see your creations.

First post for Crafty Girls!!!

Good Morning, this is my first post for my new Design Team position at Crafty Girls, I am very excited to be joining such a lovely team of creative ladies.

This time we are sponsored by the fabulous Bug A Boo. I have used the lovely Roses Block for my card. As always our challenge is Anything Goes.

I have often looked at cards using the Spotlight technique and admired them but never really had a suitable image for the technique. I decided to try it with this image. The Spotlight technique involves colouring a small part of an image and placing it directly over the same image underneath. 

I also used some foil on the Spotlight not that you can see it very well but it is there promise.
I hope you can join us this time as we are a monthly challenge and Mothers Day isn't far away!!

If you have the time to leave a comment it would be most appreciated.

Good Morning, I didn't get a chance to post before now as Sam and I went for a nice 6 mile walk. 

No crafting on show on my desk today as I need to do my paperwork!!! It's all in monthly piles and I just need to enter it all, so one month at a time I think. 

Thank you for all those who visited last week and left such lovely comments they really make my day. If you are wondering why I am showing you my desk you can find out all about it at Julia's Blog. 

I will visit as many as I can today and will catch up with the rest of you over the next few days. Looking forward to seeing your creative spaces.
