I have been working on this card for a friend for a little girl who is getting christened and it will just fit snuggly for a few challenges.
So this is my card for the Allsorts challenge blogs Things with wings challenge!! and the CES challenge blogs embossing challenge for this week and the Papertake weekly's pale pretty pastel colours challenge.
I have to thank my awesome bloggy and sir stampalot hotties Fleur, Louise and Lou for getting the umpf to post this card for these challenges.
They never fail to make me go oooooh and awwwwww with their creations and IRL they are awesome too!! love yah all xxxxxx

I used my little butterfly tilda., coloured up with promarkers in yummy pastel colours which were-
Skin- blush, peach and soft peach.
Hair-Buttercup, sandstone and caramel.
Top/wings- cocktail pink and pastel pink.
Trousers/wings- soft green and pastel green.
socks- soft green and pastel pink.
Shoes- sandstone.

I also used some crackle accents on her wings to get the veiny butterfly wing effect with some frayed burlap distress ink rubbed on top to make them show, looks fab IRL!!!

A much needed punched border of Martha stewart heart doily edge punching and a bit of cricutting for cutting hearts and tiny hearts embossing from my cuttlebug love language set, ripped bit and organza ribbon and hey presto, one gorgeous christening card!!! yey!!!!

Ok so I am going out to my mummy's house now and I promise not to post again today!!!!! LOL!!!

Morning peeps!!!
Well, we got up at 5am this morning. It is forecast rain but so far we have beautiful sunshine so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will last a little while longer!! I have a few cards I need to take piccies of so yey for sunshine!!
I was playing around with paper last night ( I always do!!!) and had these cute papers left over from another project. They are from my Dreams Come True papercraft factory cd from Funky Hand. I love this particular colourway, it is called Blue Magic ( oh and I love the way all the papers from it go together...I am pants at matching papers up!!!!) and you can never have enough blue papers with a house full of boys!!!!
The cute little boy image is Ticket to my Life....of course.... from Tiddly inks!!!! He is inspired by the grandson of my very special friend Shirley. He is so cute. I edited his ticket a little so that it would fit in with my fathers day card making frenzy I am having at the minute!!!
I am popping him in for the challenge over on the Do it with Digi's challenge blog whose challenge this week is "All about boys". I have never seen this challenge blog before but it looks awesome and being as I digi an awful lot I will definitely be popping back in on them!! Please pop over and check out their DT's lovely cards.

This card is another one for Gabby's wedding thanks!! she popped a last minute request in for her grandma who made the bridesmaids dresses and again, Tiddly Inks came to my rescue!!!I  teamed it up with a few papers from my Nitwits FBQ bear necessities download.It is sooo cute!!
