My wonderfful DT buddy is celebrating her birthday today - Many Happy Returns Stef, I hope everything "glitters" for you "babe" !!!

This week's challenge is to use a butterfly or fairy in your creations along with either brads or eyelets. Our featured team member is Harriet and I do love her wonderful creations.
ABC has the theme of Pearls this week and Creative Inspirations want to see your Favourite Stamped Image.

We are delighted that none other than the ultra talented Bev is our Guest Designer, thank you sweetie.

I have used my favourite brand of stamp, WOJ, and I adore Melinda no matter what she does - blowing kisses to you all of you!! Coloured with my prisma´s and GD to her wings, dp is from the Classic range with K&Co, card stock, ribbon and flowers from stash, swiss dots folder and retro punch complete. Do stop by Bev, Paula, Sharon, Linda and Joey´s blogs for inspiration.

Wednesday is upon us once again and that is us half way through yet another week, how time flies when we have fun! Wednesday´s always bring Flutter By and this week's challenge is an easy one. Use a quote or sentiment on your creation along with a butterfly or fairy.

I inked up my Guardian Angel by WOJ for the first time and ooh I love her, can´t believe I have kept her hidden since Harrogate. She is coloured with my Prisma´s and Glamour Dust to her beautiful wings. Loving my retro punch these days with the roses , flourish is a die cut, ribbon and papers from stash.

Creative Card Crew Challenge 10 - GDT

Challenge 10 with the Creative Card Crew has been set by the lovely Joey and she says MINIMAL and I very much doubt if I could have minimised anymore.

What!!! Only one piece of backing paper and even kept my ribbon minimal as I used my punch and weaved it through so as not to show too much and ran my main card through the Swiss Dots folder. I have tried to keep my combo to only two shades too and my gorjuss girl has been coloured with my now beloved Prisma´s.

I have received these super awards and apologise for not displaying them sooner, life goes so fast at times and I do appreciate you all for thinking of me. My friends all have wonderful blogs full of inspiration so I recommend you sit back with a cuppa and browse their creations.

Thank you so much Poppy, Susie, Vicki and Glenda

Thank you for both of these Vicki you´re a star and I look forward to working with you.

Thanks a million Maxine I love this ladybug.

Lili of the Valley - Challenge 27 - GD

I am delighted and honoured to be guest designer with LOTV and their theme for this fortnight is to use the colours Pink,Green and Blue. Do stop by and view all the wonderful creations by the DT.

Ooh these cookies are so good, can´t beat home baking ! I love Whiff of Joy stamps and I have coloured her with my prisma´s, papers are K&Co Classic, flowers are a mixture of prima´s, punched and roses which I bought from the Range. I love threading pearls onto wire to add to my spacers and charms, to tell the truth my fingers are too big to work with the links hehe.
Sun is shining brightly and a trip to shops again is necessary, enjoy your day.

Creative Card Crew Challenge 9 - Guest Designer card

The theme this week with the Creative Card Crew has been set by the lovely Linda and she says "Everyone Emboss" so do stop by and view all the lovely creations made by the Design Team and join in and have some fun.

I used a stencil by Joy for the corners - a little bit of embossing, cutting and pricking onto pearlescent card . I did not stitch as I normally would because I reckon my soon to be 16 year old grandson would not appreciate this. He is the best birthday present any grandma could ask for, same day as me!!! Swiss dots folder, easy embossing or what! see how simple it is to join in with this challenge, and Mikey has been coloured with my prisma´s.
Pretty sure Ryan will love this cool dude of a guitarist as he too loves his music.
Sorry this is so short and sweet but I am exhausted after spending the day in Gibraltar shopping, and the drive is not the easiest at the best of times, luckily there were no long queues either going in or coming out today.
Reckon we will be eating out tonight or poor hubby will starve lol.
