Fabulous Father's Stamptacular Challenge :-)

I made this card for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge whose theme this week is 'Fabulous Father's'

Heidi at Simon Says Stamp
very kindly sent me this fabulous set of Simon Says Clear Stamps OWLS AND BRANCHES Exclusive Set

Doesn't the 'Dad' look concerned about his little fledgling :-)
I coloured the images with Prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit. The background was made using distress inks and stamped with the branch from this set. The flowers are Prima ones, also from Simon Says Stamp.

The 'Dad' is stamped onto an inked grungeboard die cut shape. I also used a skeleton leaf and a swirl cut out on my cricut.
I used Basic Grey and brown coredinations papers.

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

Funky Fairy's Challenge 21 # Christmas !! :-)

I am sitting here writing this with my A/C on ! It's red hot here and not exactly 'Christmas' weather ;-) I made a promise to myself at Christmas to make at least one Christmas card a week starting in February ! Well that didn't happen ! But at least I have one ready now !! yay !!
The theme on the Funky Fairy's Challenge is to make a card or creation with Christmas in mind. You have to use at least one Funky Fairy's Papercrafts download to enter. They have some wonderful papers to buy in the store or you can go to the Blog of Inspiration and find some lovely freebies too :-)

I treated myself and bought the Lets Get Traditional set, it was a difficult choice tho because they have some lovely Christmas paper downloads. I am sure I will be using these alot though, many of them I can use throughout the year too,,, bargain !! :-)

The image is a Penny Black Jolly Xmas Kitty. I bought this to use last Christmas and never inked it so I just had to use this one :-) Isn't it CUTE !! :-) As you can see I glittered almost everything ! I didn't have any white glitter card so I made me own :-)

As you can see I decorated the inside too :-) The sentiment comes with the download pack along with loads of other images. I can't recommend this set enough it is FABBY !!
The DT have done some wonderful creations for your inspiration so please go and see them :-) We love coming to see what you have made so please join in The Funky Fairy's Challenge!

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

I also decorated the inside using Mudpie Mouse' he is just soo cute eh !

The papers are Stamping Up, I added st,ickles to the centers of the fruits, I also used a little coredinations for layering :-)The flowers were plain white Prima ones which I sprayed with orange glimmer mist.
