My First Loves + Awards

One Stop Craft Challenge#23-All Sewn Up has been set by the lovely Sharon, now how could I resist when stitching was and still is my first love along with decoupage! She would like to see faux,doodled,stamped, machine or hand stitched so out came my pricking needle for this pattern along with my needle and thread. Flutter By Wednesday #51 theme this week is No Designer Paper so my card also fits into this challenge, another challenge I couldn´t resist because I love my fairies and butterflies too.

A cute little fairy decoupage,have added a little glamour dust to his wings and some flat backed beads then decided he needed something to focus on so also added some little punched out butterflies (always save the scraps from my corner punches)then added some jelly tots to the corners.

I am honoured to receive these awards from three lovely,talented crafters. Please stop by there blogs and say Hi.
Thank you so much Susie and Chris the above award is gorgeous.
Paula, thank you so much hun, your award is gorgeous too.
