Sweet Pea Stamps - Daisy Fairy

My girls really love fairies right now.
Which I why I had to colour Joanne Schempp's Daisy Fairy from Sweet Pea Stamps.
I added some  extra foliage to the background rather than using a lot of patterned paper.  
My girls love this little fairy, I think I will have to colour another one for them.

Thank you for stopping by today

Tiddly Inks Tuesday

Welcome to another Tiddly Inks Tuesday.

I bet you are wondering what fabulous challenge we have in store for you this week.
Well it is simple this week, and perfect for the little students in our lives.

This week you need to create a...
Back To School Bookmark

I decided to make a cute little corner bookmark for my daughter using the delightful Party Time Pixies.
I always believe there is a little piece of magic in books.  They take you to places you could only dream of, and I think it is a magical thing to see my daughter reading and enjoying her books. Love, love, love it!

Here is a little photo of the bookmark in action.
So if you feel the need to make a bookmark, check out this weeks challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.
Plus there is some gorgeous inspiration from the team there as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Tiddly Tuesday time again :)

Hello again.

Welcome to another Tiddly Tuesday.
This week on the challenge blog you are asked to create a thankyou card for.....a teacher.

Teachers play an enormous role in our children's lives, and I am sure that sometimes this could be a tough task.  I struggle with my two girls, let alone taming a class full of kiddies.

My daughter adores her Year 1 teacher, so I decided to make this very special card for her.
This card uses the cute little Versa Bugg, which can be found here, or in this fantastic Bugg Mega Pack.
I coloured this little Bugg with brown hair just like Miss Kayla, and also with a green dress, matching her uniform.

The card is made using a the Apple template from My Scrap Chick. I am loving shaped cards lately!!

Be sure to head over to the challenge blog to see the other amazing Teacher Thank you cards from the rest of the Tiddly Inkers.  

Good luck with this challenge.
