Winnie Sugar Sprinkles

Hi everyone,

It's time for some inspiration for the current  challenge over at the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge we're Anything Goes so lets see your projects. https://polkadoodle.blogspot.co.uk/

The DT were tasked with using one of the numerous and beautiful design sheets from our Nikky, so many to choose from, where do you start? So being a girl that likes pretty and sweet I decided to go for a design sheet from the beautiful Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Collection.


I made a wrap to go around the front and added our Winnie in one of the beautiful elegant nest dies

Spring Maiden

Hi there  crafty buddies,

Today I'm sharing a new release from the lovely Andreia at Moonflowers Digistamps. Oooow I just love this beautiful lady she's called Spring Maiden.

You can find her here at the store
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/523232207/spring-maiden?ref=shop_home_active_1

Did you know? On the first day of spring, a person at the North Pole would see the sun skimming across the horizon, beginning six months of uninterrupted daylight. A person at the South Pole would see the sun skimming across the horizon, signaling the start of six months of darkness. Wowsers we're pretty luck really at least we get a mix of both!!

Molly Fairy

Today I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration for the Challenge over at Conie Fong's Facebook page.
This month our theme is Add ribbon.

Would love to see your entries there to win some of Conie's great images
https://www.facebook.com/groups/396730687168777/?fref=ts

For my project I'm using the cute Molly and this time she's a fairy. Yeah !!
Did you know that fairies love all things sparkly? They are easily distracted by shiny things, bit like me!! Fairies like crystal jewellery, Brownies are charmed by Christmas tree tinsel and they hate it when it falls on the floor. Sprites adore starshine and Goblins covert bright silver and gold. So there you go we've learnt something today.

You can find Molly with or without wings over at the store

Daisydays

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge we're Anything Goes so lets see your projects. https://polkadoodle.blogspot.co.uk/

The DT were tasked with using flowers.
Well I'd been having a play about with my Brusho's and Pixie powders and made some backgrounds. So I decided to use some of Polkadoodles lovely flower stamps, these are from the Daisydays collection. I stamped and embossed them in black on my backgrounds then cut them out. I stamped the sentiment from the set onto kraft card and added some of the little bubbles from the set together with some frantage.

You can find the stamp collection here in the store http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/daisydays-stamp-me-clear-stamp-set/
