FAS challenge 29.

papers from Craft the Year Away 

Helllooooo!! I'm back again!!! 

so its time for a new challenge over on the Fetch a Sketch challenge blog, but before I go any further I just want to thank you all for your lovely comments and entries on my first  sketch. I was so nervous and you all made my day with your kind words and stunning creations ,mwah, mwah xxxxx

So, this time our gorgeously gorgeous Jenny has designed the sketch for us and here it is...

Remember that you can flip the sketch, rotate the sketch, resize it and make any type of project you like with it - as long as we can see the original sketch in your creation we'll be happy!
We have two sponsors for this challenge - A Day For Daisies is offering a $12 gift certificate to one lucky winner to spend in the store!
And Funky Hand is offering a download of the winners choice from the store!

I used the little winter fairy for my card. I distressed up my card base a was white and far too perfick so I distressed it with some tattered rose and tea dye distress inks and  also gave it a good old rub with my fine ball embosser, a bit of squigglying and squishing into my foam mat and it was much better!!! then when I cut my little butterfly memory box border die I inked around them too. I added some of the yummy Funky Hand paper to the inside too so that it shows through the butterflies when the card is shut but  it was tricky to get a piccy of it doing that so I hope you can see through the butterflies ok!!!

Right, back to making potions for little soldiers in the paddling pool now.....:)

Mo has lots of little soldiers lined up ready to go in the paddling pool and I am going to sit on the decking and watch him play. I treasure this little guy sooo much so today I am soaking up the mo time!!

Its also my turn to poston the Get Funky challenge blog with my make for our Jackie's 'Just A Number' challenge for this month.

I printed out this months awesome freebie....

onto some thin paper and then ripped it all up into little pieces. Then out came my little paper mache piggy and the decopatch glue and lots of sticky gluey fun later number pig was finished! I added a little bit of green polka dot ribbon to his neck too! I LOVE him...however someone small loved it more and he was quickly stolen by a cheeky little Mo!!
