Good Morning All, 
I hope you are all fit and healthy. Today is the final challenge for June over at CRAFT challenge.
This week we would like to see feathers and/or birds in your projects.

Once again we have some amazing sponsors.

 This is my first card using Hat and Girl - Vintage from
Digi Doodle Shop who are our sponsors for Star of the Month.
I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it.
Image coloured with Promarkers.
Goegeous, gorgeous paper from my favourite digital design Katie Pertiet over at Designer Digitals.
I could spend hours looking at and buying her beautiful paper sets.
This set in Oiselet Bleu

The beautiful charm, tiny feathers and pearl lace are both from ebay.
The ribbon is from stash and the rose from Wild Orchids.

My next card is again using an image from Digi Doodle Shop called 1800 Vintage Dress 6.

A tutorial for the style of this card can be found here Thank you to Stampartic for the inspiration.
Once again the papers are by Katie Pertiet - this time the set is called letter box birdwatcher.
Every paper in this set is just beautiful and will be used over again.

Incy Wincy Anything goes

Good morning peeps,
I hope you all had a restful weekend. The weather here was awful - perfect crafting weather because nothing could be done in the garden so I didn't feel guilty.
Today over at INCY WINCY  we have a nice easy challenge.

Anything Goes.

Our Fantastic sponsor this week is Fantastic Ribbons
For my project this week I made this new home card. A friend at work asked me to make a card for her niece and nephew who are about to move into their first home. She chose the image from a selection I gave her which of course is from Meljen Designs.

The cute image is coloured with Promarkers and the gorgeous denim papers are from
Ribbon and lace from stash
Flower Wild Orchid Crafts.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Have fun with this challenge, we can't wait to come and visit and see all of your wonderful creations.

Craft Colour Challenge

Good morning all,
I hope that you have all survived the rain and the wind over the weekend. It was our festival here and all the floats were soaked and almost blown away. Its such a shame- all the effort that goes into decorating them and the weather is awful. 
Today over at CRAFT Challenge we have a colour challenge for you. Here is the palette.

As always we have several sponsors

I chose one of the images from the timeless beauties set by Stitchy Bear.
These images are just gorgeous and although the colour palette is bright I have managed to use all of the colours to create this vintage look card.
I have to say I loved making this card and its going to be one that I only give to someone special.

The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are part of a digi set from Designhousedigitals by Angie Hinks called True Romantics.
Do check this site out, they have some amazing kits for free or just $1:00.
The doiley is cut from a Cheery Lynn die.
The sentiment is from Lili of The Valley
Swirl is memory box -  I think and the flowers are Wild Orchid Blooms.

I hope you love this as much as I do.

Enjoy the change and do hop over to the rest of the DT blogs.

An exploding box for the tooth fairy.

Good morning all, 
I do hope you had a good weekend in spite of the weather. Here the weather has been very wet which has held up our builders quite a bit this week. This is only stage one of our building and is mostly the outside.
I am dreading the inside part being done!

Anyway on to brighter things.
Today over at INCY WINCY Designs  our new challenge is sponsored by 

We would like you to use more than 1 image in your projects.

You can merge them or do as I and use several individual images.

I made this exploding box to hold a little bag for my friend's little girl to put her teeth into when they fall out.
I have put a gorgeous little necklace inside for her in the meantime which has a tube of toothpaste and toothbrush charm on it.
Hopefully she will treasure both the box and the necklace.

The papers are from Nitwit collection - Gratitude.
All the images are the tooth fairy images from Stamp Fairy - (four in total)
The lace is from stash, the flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the butterfly is from stash.
