Fairy Wishes ...

Here's another birthday card that I made for my son's girlfriend, who turns 16 next Saturday :) I actually dug out my cuttlebug and Nestabilities! I thought it would be a neat touch to have her wings 'open' so cut them out a second time and attached them - the sentiment is from a new CTMH stamp set called "Scrapbook Statements - Poets .. Everyday Life" and I stamped onto CTMH canvas shapes

I am going to enter this in the following challenges: All brand new for me!!

Aud Sentiments #77 - Sentiment for a Child (I hope this sentiment is ok)

Happy Birthday ...

You know sometimes when you do something and when you're done, you think, "Oh my gosh, I (bold here!!) did that??" Well this is one of those moments for me. I sorted all my cards and I wanted to make some special birthday cards, so out came my copics and I went through one of my magazines and found a pattern to go by .. and I created this ..  

I always struggle with my copics, I just can't seem to get the knack of them. Well, I think it's just ppl I can't do bc this turned out so pretty. I added some chalk around my image to give it a little glittery shine and dug out some punches that have been neglected too long. "Happy Birthday" is stamped on a canvas shape (love these!!). My sentiment is from a new CTMH Stamp set called "Scrapbook Statements - Poets .. Everyday Life"

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel .. Maya Angelou"

Is that not fitting for a birthday card?

I am entering this in the following challenges:

DSC #29 - "Once Upon A Time .. "

This weeks challenge is at Digitally Sweet is:

Once a upon a time...
Choose a fairy tale or legend to inspire your layout

So, we're looking for LO's this week .. are ya up to it? I had to go looking for a princess kit as I don't have one! I found a cute "Lil Princess" mini kit at MyMemories for .99 cents and it's to cute! So here's what I came up with for this weeks challenge

I didn't add a date on there because I have to confirm it first, but Ashleigh's about 4 I think? This dress was made for her and she looks like a little Cinderella.

LM #132 and a DT Call

Good morning everyone!! Guess what!! We've decided that we'd like to add some new faces and amazing talent at LM! Think you'd like to join our DT? All we need is for you to add DT with your name this week - KarenDT - that's it!

For DT info/requirements, visit us at Lasting Memories

Ok! So lets get to this weeks challenge:

When I think of clean and simple, I don't think white on white or anything like that. I find it so hard not to have colour on my LO's. So here's my take on CAS - Another Sharbot Lake LO and I tell ya, hubby would not be a happy camper, but I LOVE this page! It's not often he'll let you take his pic :)


You'll see all kinds of different CAS ideas over at Lasting Memories - so come and join us and if you're interested, try out for our DT Call! Thanks for stopping by!
