Funky Fairy's Challenge #15 and DT call :-)

The theme this week on the Funky Fairy's Challenge
is 'Get Well Soon'. To enter the challenge you must use a download from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts, they have some absolutely gorgeous new paper downloads available to buy but there are also lots of free paper downloads available on the Blog of Inspiration so what are you waiting for, pop over and have a look and get yourselves some downloads :-) Every week we have a prize of a FREE paper download too !! That is a fabby prize !!

I always think a cuppa T and a dunking biscuit are just the thing if you're not feeling too well :-) so that's what I went with !! :-))
The image is one of my new House Mouse stamps , cute eh !! :-)
I really should have written this when I made them !! have been on holiday since and am finding it difficult to remember what I did !!

I used a free download called 'Doodlementals' and the 'It's so Distressing' papers. The box was made from a template that I bought from the Cutting Cafe

I coloured the image with copics ( love em !! ) and used crackle glaze on the cup, that has been sitting on my shelf for over a year unused !! but I love the effect it gives :-)The ribbon was from my still messy drawer !! the flower is a prima one and the text is from the Clare Curd Sentiment set :-)

There's also a Guest Designer call this week too, see the Challenge blog for further details :-)

Please go and see the Funky Fairy's Challenge blog and see the fabulous creations the DT have made, I am so lucky to be working with such a group of talented people :-)

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one, also you only have a few days to enter my blog candy so take a peek, it's at the top of my blog :-)

A Day In School :-)

I made this card for the Digital Tuesday Challenge whose theme is 'thank a teacher'. I used Dawny's fab sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge It also qualifies for the Cupcake Craft Challenge whose theme is 'numbers' :-)
I used a new digi download image from The Digital Stamp Oasis called 'A Day At School', Isn't she cute :-) I used my new SU card to print the images onto and am thrilled with how they colour ! much better than what I was using before !! I 3D'd the image, her feet were done 3 times !! may need to make a box for this !!
The papers are all from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts. I used the fabby new Gorjjus Gingham' set and the red script paper is from the 'In With The Old set. I am not biased, honest, !! :-) I really love these paper downloads and have bought several of them :-) So convenient :-) Joey, get yer printer sorted out !! :-)
I used diamond glaze on the apple, it looks almost real !! lovely n shiny :-)
The 'other' apple was cut out on my cricut ( fab machine !! )
The text was stamped with graphite black brilliance using a hero arts set.
The sums on the 'blackboard' were hand written by me in white pencil ( kept the sums simple !! lol), I did mean to smudge some white chalk to 'dirty' the blackboard but I forgot before I took the photo, I will do that tho, i think it'll look better, might change this pic later :-)

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

If you would like this download check out my blog candy at the top of my blog, you have until saturday evening to enter :-)
