Sorry for my late posting of my DT card for the challenge over on Magical Monday.  After arriving back late Friday night from my camping trip in Cornwall I had loads to catch up on over the weekend plus with having my daughter found no time at to craft.  Today is my day off from work so got started on my creation.

For the challenge over on Magical Monday we have a lovely sketch to follow created by our very own Heidi of which we are being sponsored by CRAFTY RIBBONS.

Here is what I came up with

I used one of my Pergamano clear stamps from the Fairies 1 set and coloured her in with promarkers and stickles on her wings.  I then cut her out with my Labels One nestability.  The cardstock used is Certainly Celery from Stampin Up and the dp is from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary paper pack.  The sentiment is from LOTV cut out with my Woodware circle punch and pieced onto a scallop circle cut out with SU scallop circle punch.  Flowers, brads and lace are all from my stash and the rhinestone accents are from Treasures by Shabby Chic.

Dont forget to pop over to see what the rest of the fab DT have created following this great sketch.

This will be one of my last postings before I go off on holiday on Saturday for a week camping in Cornwall.  Just wishing the weather to change dramatically as the extended forecast doesnt look good!

I have created my card for some friends of mine who last week had their 3rd child a baby boy so now they have 1 girl and 2 boys. They haven't decided on a name yet but I'm sure when they do it will be well worth the naming delay.

I have used my Whiff of Joy Willow Holding Baby stamp, coloured in with my promarkers and cut out with my Labels Four nestability.  The cardstock used is Lavender Lace from Stampin Up.  The cardstock used is a selection from Nana's Nursery Baby Boy.  Ribbon from my stash and flowers from wildorchidcrafts.  The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy Baby Sentiments punched out with my Punch Extra-Large from SU.  I followed the lovely sketch over on Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

What horrible weather we had over the weekend I wish it would just go away after all its suppose to be 'flamin' June lol!  I'm off on holiday to Cornwall on Saturday and the forecast so far isn't looking good - just will have to make the most of it!!

My next card I have made for our challenge over on Magical Monday which has a theme of Punches and Embossing.  I followed the lovely sketch over on Sketch and Stash and am also entering the LOTV challenge which is Anything Goes.

The image I have used is Fairie on Tiptoe from LOTV and coloured in promarkers and stickles on her wings.  I cut her out with my circular nestie and pieced onto a Die-namics decorative doily cut out of Stampin Up Blushing Bride cardstock.  The ribbon is also SU Blushing Bride.  The dp is from my Papermania Blueberry Hill paper pack and embossed card from Kanban.  The flowers were punched out with my woodware punches and the sentiment from LOTV Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments was cut out with my SU scallop circle punch and stamped with Rose Bud Memento ink.  Pearls are from Hobbycraft.

I do hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT on Magical Monday have created as we now have some other talented ladies on our team.  We are being sponsored by The Crafty Purple Frog who are offering 3 sheets of decoupage to the winning entrant.
