I am so happy, I won my very first blog Candy... from Sugar Nellie. The awesome Candy arrived at the end of last week and I didn't have any of the 5 stamps which Sugar Nellie sent to me. Here is a picture of the stamps, (1) Christmas Fairy (2) Arthur (3) Cup of Tea (4) Gorjuss - Foxy (5) Fragile Beauty. I am looking forward to creating some cards with my new stamps.

I made these two cards for a challenge on Craftbubble.com. The Theme is Tiny 'Treasures'. This Magnolia image of baby in bunny suit is just so cute. I coloured both of the cards with Distress Inks and the DP's are both from Basic Grey. The stamps used on the other card were purchased from "I brake for stamps" I bought them a while ago and have only just got around to using them.

Here's a card I made for my lovely Sister in Law for her birthday. Using a Whiff of Joy image "Fingers Crossed" I coloured the image with Promarkers/Copics highlighted the small heart in the sentiment and the butterfly with Diamond Glaze. Cut out the image with my Nestabilities, flowers are from Prima and ferns were cut using a Martha Stewart punch.

For this one I used up one of my 'precious' Hanglar and Stanglar images that a crafty friend sent to me, isn't she cute?! I also wanted to use a stamp which Susana of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design sent to me among the free gifts she sent with my last order from her. I stamped it on the background card, then again, coloured it with promarkers/copics and cut it out and decoupaged it. I used brads as pegs for each of the 'danglers' to add to the 3D impression. The flower was amongst a pack bought in the USA on my recent trip and I used on of my Martha Stewart border punches on the brown layer. The note pages were made using a Magnolia stamp and the metal embellishment came within a DoCrafts 'goody bag' bought a while ago from the Art Shop at Kelly Bray.

This is another card made for the SCAC monochrome challenge on Paper Craft Planet. Again using a Faerie Song stamp, coloured this time with promarkers, prima Daisy Dream flowers and pink flower gem, all purchased in the USA. Martha Stewart border punch round the edges of the white layer and some squares of papers which were free in a magazine.
I made this card for the PaperCraftPlanet.com challenge in the SCAC forum, based on the May sketch. Using a Faerie Song stamp, coloured with polychromos pencils, blended with sansodor. The flowers and gems were purchased in the USA and the ferns made with a Martha Stewart punch.
