A simple matchbox.....
 turned into something cute, whimsical, and very girly!
My creative thoughts went to town on this one, a Tooth Fairy box! made from paper with fairies & Butterflies, flowers & gems... glitter here & there, and a few pearls along with way for the fairies earrings etc... 
I have entered this into a few places, check out the sites below:
Below are a few more angles of the tooth fairy box
The little round note token says:
Dear Tooth Fairy, please be careful opening the box, a special tooth is inside.
I balanced all the blue and mauve out with a few bright colored flowers.
This is the other side of the box, both sides are uniquely different
I have also used a liquid application in various places to leave a wet look
 as you will be able to see in a few photo's
Thanks for popping by today

Pretty in Tulips

Hi Everyone, today I have a nice card to share with you, I had a rather busy weekend, so I was hoping I would have posted this card before now, never mind... no rest for the wicked ... as they say! hahhahahaa
The stamp is from Bugaboo she is cute all dressed up in tulips, and of course pretty in pink :)
I added some butterflies from other paper that I had, so I took time to cut them out, and as you can see, pretty gems & glitter, and card stock to compliment the pretty papers, quite a refreshing card I think :)
I entered the card into the following sites:
Cute Card Thursday - where the sketch came from
Crafty Creations Challenges - Challenge # 81 - use butterflies
Flutter by Wednesday - use of butterfly, fairy or angels challenge
The sketch from Cute Card Thursday was a straight sketch, I turned mine slightly to the left to add further dimension and make it more interesting. Here are a few more angle's as below
As you can see the Butterflies are not completely glued down, I decided to make them look like they were flying by letting one part of the wing come out from the card to add further dimension.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a great day :)

Happy Birthday

Well, it's been a while since I have had a decent blog, due to random things happening, so I'm pleased to show you a card I made for a friend today for her birthday. 
the adorable digi stamp is from Bugaboo stamps
I have also entered this card into the following blogs:
I loved the paper from Bo Bunny I managed to purchase this a while back, but the colors are more for a Halloween theme but they go really well with the ivy image of the stamps and I then tied in more green, black & purple with embellishments and bling, to get it away from such a Halloween theme, I think it turned out really well. I love the black grid sticker I placed on the bottom of the card, it made the card look really cool!
Don't you just love the Ivy Girl!
Thanks for stopping by today :)

On Your Engagement

This was meant to be for a pink & dots challenge, but due to being so unwell I wasn't able to enter it in time, so I've entered it into the summer card challenge with One Stop Craft Challenge - Butterfly's are out in summer, aren't they?  It's a simple card, the inside has more detail than the front of the card, on the inside you can move the butterfly wings to see what is written underneath, the photo doesn't do much justice for the card, due to the poor lighting, sorry for that, but it was a very pretty engagement card to make for a lovely couple of friends, we are very excited for them :)
You can find more inspiration on One Stop Craft Challenge
I used the Christina Rae paper range for a bit of a change, it's just so pretty, and also flowers, gems, glitter, the computer helped with the words :) have a look at the inside of the card as below
Thanks for looking at my blog today, it was a pleasure to have you visit :)
