Flutter By Wednesday #63

Thought I would do another challenge today as I have been spending far to much time on Facebook! This one took a lot of thought on how to do it as the theme was an outdoors card with either a butterfly or fairy for Flutter By Wednesday.
I used some papers by K & Co of daffodils, butterflies & ladybirds. Cut out my new Sugar Nellie stamp called Fragile Beauty [coloured with Prisma pens]and mounted her onto the paper. I added some jewels and flowers just to finish it off. It is supposed to look like she is kneeling among the daffodils! Don't know if you can see but she is holding a butterfly and another one sits on the toadstool.
It certainly had my brain working and hope that you like it.

Haste ye back..........

The Weekend

I haven't done any challenges this weekend as I have had my two grand-daughters to stay and we have had such fun. We went for lunch on Saturday courtesy of my youngest son and his wife which was lovely. We then went shopping and I bought them some clothes for their holiday coming up next month. Well that was hilarious as Naomi the youngest does not like trying on clothes. I wish I had had a camcorder with us to record the goings on with her , it was hilarious but in the end she picked two dresses, a schrug [spelling] and a top. Laura the oldest had no problems she knew what she wanted straight away!
On Sunday we sat with the main computer, Laura was on her laptop and Naomi used her grandfather's notebook. We all went onto Facebook and I showed them how to play several of the most popular games. Again it was great fun and we didn't even notice the sun shining outside. When their dad came to pick them up he thought we were all nuts missing out on the beautiful day. The poor dog Poppy was totally out of it with the heat, felt so sorry for her.

Here are a few photos of Naomi at her Prom on Friday night - she is the tallest of them all! Needless to say her grandfather and I are so proud of her - she starts secondary school after the summer holidays.

Mr Owl

Been busy this week taking delivery of a new fridge/freezer today and tomorrow a new sideboard to hide away all my crafting stuff [if possible] that is all over the dining room.
Been spending too much time on Facebook too must say it gets addictive!
Always wanted to try the easy pop out decoupage [die cut]and until recently had never bought any. These die cuts were included in a kit from QVC I know some of you might think it is cheating but so much easier on my arthritis than cutting out.
Anyway made this card for a friend's birthday coming up next month and thought it suitable for a man. Love the owl I think he is real cute!

Decoupaged then ribbon, flowers added from stock.
Haste ye back.........

Stampin' for the weekend Challenge 2 - Mr Clown

Been a busy week and have got myself hooked on Facebook and the games [like I have nothing else to do!] but today I have stayed away to get some stamping done.
This weeks competition for Stampin' for the Weekend is Digi Images. Now I have never down this before so I found the site they mentioned and bought an image.

I printed it, coloured it with my Twinking H20's & Prisma pencils. Then decoupaged it and mounted it onto another image. I used papers from Papermania which I found when hunting for something different- I had never used them before. Then decorated with flowers and added some glamour dust to his coat and balloons.

I think he is rather cute!

There is a new blog called Stampin for the Weekend and the theme for the first competition is called From Dusk to Dawn using the colours purple and yellow. I just happen to have a stamped image I coloured with my Prisma's some time ago so used that and background papers, flowers and ribbons and my new Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you like it and haste ye back...........

Another Butterfly [ Flutter By Wednesday #60 ]

I just love butterflies so I couldn't resist stamping this one then decoupaging it onto a card. I also stamped around the card not sure about the effect but as it's the first I have made in ages so I will leave it.
PS Decided to enter this card in the Flutter by Wednesday challenge this week.

Sorry about not being online this last week but been taking things easy and catching up on some gardening as the weather has been glorious. Take care all and haste ye back............
