Lilis Little Fairies DT Card!!

Good morning everyone, I've been a nawty blogger this last week and am finally back with a card for this weeks Lili's Little Fairies Challenge. I love this weeks theme "Lavender and Lace". Think these colours are always so pretty on a card, I should make a note to use them more often. I have used tiptoe fairy and again coloured onto kraft, this time with Copics and Promarkers. (I'm experimenting I think). The papers are a mix of Basic Grey Koishi and Wisteria. You cant see the card blank but it is a beautifully embossed pearl and so pretty. Lots of sparkle and punches used and a Cream Viva Pearl Pen on the butterflies along with a piece of lace and the LOTV postcard stamp.

So here are a list of challenges;
My Mums Craft Shop - Favourite Colour Combo
Flutteryby Wednesdays - Open Challenge
Paper Pretties - Use Glitter on your Card
My Time to Craft - Your Favourite Embellishment
Try it on Tuesdays - Do you believe in Fairies
PaperMinutes - Anything Goes
Pollycraft - Bingo (flowers,punches,pearls)
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - All that Glitters
The Crafty Pad - Show us your New Year Sparkle
PanPastel Uk - Anything Goes
Alphabet Challenge - Y for You Can Choose
Little Darlings - Favourite Colour
Timbroscrapmania -  Wings
Scrappy Frogs - Lace
Basic Grey - Something New (stash)
Papercrafting Journey - Floral
DYSU - Patterned Paper
MAWTT - Things with Wings
Fashionable Stamping - Butterflies or Bugs

So the reason I've not been in blogland much these last few days. My dog has picked up a parasite and is now on antibiotics, but I've had a few sleepness nights I can tell you. I wish I could have put a nappy on him!! lol. The tablets seem to be working but my sleep pattern is all over the place at the moment, nap during the day then wide awake at 10/11pm. Just a small matter, I have school runs every morning so no lie in for me - shame!!! lol

And I really must tidy my craftroom, (again). All of my 6x6's have fallen of the shelf and are scattered over the floor atm, and everything else is just a mess. Could have sworn I had a good sort out before christmas. lol. Never mind, maybe I'll get to make a sneaky card whilst I'm doing it and I need to make room for new stash on order. Didnt bother to make it a new years resolution as I new it wouldn't last. 2 weeks it pretty good though dont you think - hehe.

I'm having a day indoors so if I stay awake I'm gonna have an hrs "me time" and catch up with your blogs.
Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping by today.

An Occasional Genius said...

Hi Claire, Oh do I love this card or what! Such gorgeous colours & I love your kraft colouring!

Just to let you know also that some of the Sweet Stampin' team are unable to comment on your blog. Apparently it's all to do with the embedded comments box & the only cure is to change it to a pop up box. If you want to do this & don't know how you can find instructions here (very simple!)


The rest of the team are being stars to try & make sure no one is missed but just in case, on behalf of all the SS team, thank you for playing along! xx
