Have a fairy good day!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Week 3 of the New Year Resolution!!!  Even though I am soooo awfully tired (it was very windy here last night- I've been up since 4am) I managed to make the card for the challenges this week. It is the first time I am attaching a charm to a card - used a jump ring and kind of squeezed it together with pliers- is that how you do it out there?  If you have any suggestions I would LUV to hear them!

On with the challenges!  I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #199- Fairy Fever- this fairy image is from Lili of the Valley.
Sketch Saturday #242 with Bunny Zoe Crafts

Thanks for stopping by, stay warm (I think it is about 18 degrees here) and have a Fairy Good Day!

Winter Hello!

Winter hello! Of course it doesn't really feel like winter when it is 60 degrees out today!  This weekend was simply glorious!  And can I tell you, this is WEEK 2 of the New Year resolution!  Not bad!  This week I am using a new stamp that I got from Whipper Snapper Designs, Inc. (Beckham)- thank you to the people that got me gift certificates to my local stamp store- stay tuned for other new purchases:)

Anyhoooo, upon attempting some of these challenges I realized that I don't really have a ton of blue paper- this is a bit pieced together with different paper - all of which I have no idea where I got it from (sorry!).  The image is so cute I can barely stand it and the rest just kind of fell into place- hope you like:)

I am entering it into the following challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday- Challenge #198- Sketch Challenge
Cute Card Thursday- Challenge 251- Beat the Blues
Papertake Weekly Challenge- Happy New...- I am using the new stamp from Whipper Snapper Designs

Happy 2013!

Happy 2013 everyone!  New year means new beginnings!  My resolution for this year is to try to post a card/ enter a challenge once a week- now it is in writing and now we see if I can manage this- once a week how difficult can that be? (he! he!)

So here's my post for this week- it is an image from Penny Black and she is just sooo adorable! I saw it a my local stamp store and had to have it! I sanded some paper on the background to make that red pop through and I used my new Stampabilities die that I got as a Christmas present.  The heart on the image has glossy accents on it (kind of hard to see) and I used some 3D adhesive to give the heart some dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday 274- Round or Square?- I chose square:)
Papertake Weekly- Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Challenge- Something New- new stamp, new Stampabilities die
Cute Card Thursday-Something New- new stamp, new Stampabilities die

Alrighty then, I am on a roll with this New Year resolution!  One post a week. Soooo easy- right...?
