Winter Fairy

I won 3 Digital Stamps on the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog back in August. I downloaded them but not to my normal folder and it had taken me to locate them. This card uses the image Winter Fairy. So here is my first creation.

Night Sky

We are campers we have been known to spend 2 weeks in a tent as our main summer holiday. Our last time was a massive disaster we went on a 2 week adventure holiday. We had canoeing, abseiling, rock climbing the whole works booked and had looked forward for 12 months. 48 hours in our boy had rushed to hospital with acute appendicitis. Managing a 10 year old in a tent post surgery was an experience I do not care to repeat ever!!! We were 8 hours from home and he couldn't sit up for longer than 30 minutes so coming home was out of the question we just had to get on with it. Needless to say we did nothing of our adventure holiday and I ended up just giving our slots away so that they did not go to waste.
We keep saying we will go back and again, obviously minus the hospital 
That quickly drifted from card making didn't it. Whoops! This card does however use the Happy Campers Stamp Set by Clearly Besotted

Hello Bluebird Fairy Garden

I had totally forgotten about this box of Hello Bluebird Stamps and dies I got months ago, long before blogging had even been considered. They cost me a fortune due to this shipping so I am a little cross at myself for neglecting them.My cards have advanced so much I really do not want to show you my first attempts with them, which properly accounts for why they wee sat unloved and forgotten about.
So here is a creation worthy of their beauty...

Using the stencil and the distress inks the background was created

Rainbow Smiles

This card started out being blended for a different purpose but I loved it so much I decided to make it a card in it's own right

The inked panel was adhered onto a A5 Card Base

The smile sentiment was cut in red and un black and then glued so that the black can be seen as a shadow underneath

Feeling Frightful

A vibrant get well soon for anyone feeling under the weather. Now schools are back I can not help but feel that our little tiddlers are going to be getting every bug under the sun. We have spent months cleaning everything to within an inch of its life and I do wonder if this will effect natural immunity to common school bugs. I therefore plan to stockpile this card. It is a little difficult to read on the picture but the sentiment readsSorry to hear you are feeling frightful Hope you feel better soon
