For my friends birthday card I've used the sketch at The Sweet Stop (SSS207). I don't know what I would do without challenges with sketches.  This is a first inking for Uptown Girls Felicity & Blair.  The papers are yet again from LOTV. They are Nitwit collections paper pad Promises.  I wasn't sure about the colours for the girls clothes, so I've paper pieced instead using the same paper pad.  I've also used a Die-namics faux crochet border to decorate the triangular part of the card.  The sentiment is a Simon Says Die and Stamp Set.  I first saw this die on Debbie4000's blog A Scrapjourney, and just had to have it. The flowers are from 2 punches.

Tea Cup Fairy

I love this cute Mo Manning digi image called Tea Cup Fairy.  She is so easy to colour and so quick to complete.  I've used (yet again) the LOTV Nitwit collections paper pad called Promises. I'm really loving these pads.  I'm entering this card into 3 challenges. Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch #201. I don't know what I would do without the inspiring sketches they provide, and Mo's Challenge #180 - Things with Wings and Flutter by Wednesday #235.  I love weekends :) I have just noticed tho' that the top of my card with the fairy on is not very straight, oh well!!!

Anything but a card

The challenge at Stampin' for the weekend is anything but a card.  I found this tutorial on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog  I've used the book mark tutorial created by Iris.  Really like how its turned out, and I may make a few more. Don't know tho' how long they would last.  The patterned papers are by Stampin' Up. The cute little bear is a Lili of the Valley stamp. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
