More Fairies.

Internet is playing up again so couldn't post yesterday and not behaving very well today either.
It's all quiet here . The ducks are all bedded down for the night so I'm sneaking some free time to show you two more cards for the Current Butterfly Challenge which has in fact been taken over by the Fairies, Gnomes. Pixies, Elves and the Angels have asked to join in now too.
I have made two more Fairy cards. One as a Birthday  card and one as a Christmas card.

First up is the Birthday card which uses another Dufex Foiled Print . This one has the number 11135 on the reverse. I created the sentiment in word and printed off. The paper is an unknown freebie from my stash which I thought went perfectly with the images. The panel is made up of 3 different fairy pictures. I was going to seperate them but then decided to leave it as one long panel. The card design shape is a double fold stand up card. Very easy to do. I got the idea from my blogging friend  Barbara. She sent me a lovely Christmas card and I have adapted the design here

Side view of the card showing the folds.

Entering this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday # #559 Anything goes.
A Bit More Time To Craft # 81 Anything goes.
Pile It On #149  Shaped cards.
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends #95 Anything goes.
Crafter's Castle #12 Anything goes.
Crafts Galore #58 Anything goes.
Love To Craft #29 Anything goes.


Second card is the Christmas make but made with non traditional colours. Pink, Mauve and Lilac.
The image is a digi by Mo Manning  called Christmas Fairy Holly. I have coloured with my promarkers and glitter glue +a silver girl pen . The design paper is holly on a lilac background. Made by Crafter's  Companion 2012  and  called Popcorn Bear. I teamed it with a snippet of lilac pearlescent card stock which means I can at last pop over to Di's playground.  The pearls and silver sentiment were from my stash. She really does look pretty IRL.


The challenge is running till 2nd January. There is  a prize to be won  and  several Secret Santa Sacks have been hidden within the numbers. The first Santa sack has just been found. If you have already entered then pop over to the blog and see if you are the winning number . Santa sacks must be claimed within 7 days. There are 3 more hiding so why not play along and see if Santa thinks you have been good this year.!!

STOP PRESS

If you think that wretched  L'Th has been very quiet then think again. His electronic tag went off this morning and I found him in the Bathroom.

No absolutely not. I am not sharing my bath tub with a duck.  O.U.T.  Out this minute the pair of you.

As for that L'Th...he's a proper handful dread to think what he'd get up to without the tag...at least you have some warning!

Ooooohhhh LOVE this fairies card!! Such delightful images and the simple design is so effective and shows them so well! Amazing gold accents too!!
Also the second one looks so beautiful with the embossed wings, such a sweetie!

Kathleen said...

Those images on the first card are fabulous and a great shape of card. The second card is very sweet.
There is nothing wrong with a rubber duck in your bath, could be worse, it could be the carolling ducks.

That elf is having some fun I see! As soon as the twins get a bit older I'm going to get them an elf. They'd love to have an elf in the bathroom I'm sure! Beautiful fairy cards. Such a fun fold. Since I am hoping to move away from Christmas cards now I'll have to give one of these a try. But wrapping and shopping has to get done too. Have a super day!

Lori said...

Both of your cards are wonderful! Love those pretty fairies and the fun fold!
