A Fairy Recipe!

This little Fairy called Tabia is a new image from Mo, at Digital Pencil Too, and I thought she went well with the Simply Swirly and Simply Brushed papers from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts.
I have made a birthday card and entered it into 3 challenges!
The first is Dare u 2 Digi Stamp...they have a recipe this week... 1 ribbon, 2 patterned papers and 3 flowers...
The second is Papertake Weekly - their theme is Fairies and Angels... and
The third is Flutter by Wednesday - Danni wants you to use a Fairy image
I have also used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious...although I haven't used the theme that went with it so haven't entered it.

Happy Monday morning to you :)
Well, Autumn is definitely starting to show it's face! The mornings are chilly, the leaves are turning and the nights are drawing in! But I love it!! It's one of the healthy feeling seasons and so pretty too :)
This week on the Cute Daisy May challenge the theme is 'Pink and ?' ...
I have a friend who has just got engaged - Many Congratulations Jackie and Alan! - and so the ideal colour combo for me seemed to be ...Pink & Brown!

Back To School

Well, the girls have gone back to school...and I guess we're on the countdown to Christmas now!! Eeek!
This is a card that I made for my little ones, and I've entered it into the Cute Card Thursday challenge, which is Back to School. I've used the sketch from this weeks Sketch & Stash challenge and also used my new fabulous 'First Day of School' image from Mo at Digital Pencil Too...Here are the youngest two on their way out the door...Katieann is now in Year 3, which makes her a Junior, so they had to exchange their polo shirts and sweatshirts for a V neck sweater, shirt and tie!

Funky Fairy's Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the 'Funky Fairy's Blog Hop' - which celebrates the merging of the Shop and Challenge Design Teams!! YAY!!
We were going to mark this occasion and celebrate with a Funky Fairy's party...but decided that we'd love to include all of you too, and have a Blog Hop instead!! :)

"Now, the theme this week over on the Challenge Blog is 'CASE IT'. This simply means that we have been looking at each others fab projects and choosing one to 'Case' (Case is an acronym for Copy and Share Everything) so you create a project using someone else's work as your inspiration, but do not need to copy it exactly. Well, as you will see all the DT members have pulled 'a blinder' this week and if you follow the blog hop you will see all their brilliant projects. PLEASE leave a comment on every blog as you go to be eligible for the fab prize being offered by Funky Fairy's Papercrafts (via the Inspiration Blog) ...we will check you know!!! :)

Here is my challenge . . .
...cased from Anne's fabby project...
To be on the right track you should have arrived from Anesha's blog...after leaving a comment and picking up her letter.
The next blog you need to pop over and visit is Ria's - but before you dash off, don't forget to collect my letter which is "I" ...and as an extra treat I have a small blog candy up for grabs!!
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is ... in your comment, tell me what your favourite sweet/treat or candy is!!! Yum!! :)
The draw will take place on Friday at 9am and the winner notified via the challenge blog next Wednesday.

Thank you for coming to visit and for playing along with the Fairy's x

If you haven't collected the previous letters, please pop back to the beginning of our blog hop at the Inspiration Blog
