polkadoodles week 12 -" The spring has sprung"- Stashbox Challenge

Hello guys...
Finally the end of the week .. I must admit i have had a couple of days off work.. and I am just recovering from the flu... all that lovely sunshine we been having certainly helps you back on the road to recovery :-)
Anyhoo...Its Friday , so it must be Polkadoodles Challenge day !!!
This week the theme is " the spring has  sprung" , with the added twist of it being a "stashbox stamp" challenge.
This week I went for fresh spring shades and used a fairy Lili of the valley stamp.

I have used the Paperboutique vol 1, the Funky Flower papers..
 I cover the pager 50/50 but with a wave to it, I cut out and decoupaged some of the flowers. Cut out some tags , added string and embellished with the word "Wish".
The fairies are coloured with Promarkers , and a little glitter pen to add sparkle ...just love these cuties.
Pop over to see the rest of the DT girlies creations, and don't forget to say "Hi"
Thanks for popping by, I will be back real soon with more cards , I am a little behind with all my card orders with catching the lergy!!

Polkadoodles Challenge#11- All about books

Hello to you and happy , happy  Friday .!
This week over at  Polkadoodles  the theme is all about books...
This had me scratching my head a little , not because  I couldn't think of gazillions of book titles , but a way to transform it all into a project....
Then it hit me...hey! I could create a book !!???
And ...Voila !

The template for this came from the lovely Kristen . It is backed with papers from "All around and Everywhere".The trees are from a stampie page on there too. The images are stamped from "Magic Neighbours" and the Flutterfly fairy is sweet Gracie.
A lot of gluing and distressing with ink , then colouring and cutting out . They are 3-d'd on. A few sissix die cuts for the book plates and scrolls.
Finished.. A lovely little box to hold a gift too.
Please pop over to the blog and see the DT girls work . There is a lot of new and upcoming , and VERY yummy stuff.
 Thanks for popping by.
Who knows , maybe I will bump into you at Harrogate Papercrafts Show tomorrow. Till then ,
hugs xx

Another award and a little mint & choc chip .

Hello guys...wowzers, its Friday..what happened..
Apologies for being MIA but its been a really full on week , I didnt make my dt post in time over @ Polkadoodles. Sorry girls!
I promise myself when a challenge goes live , I will have next weeks under construction.... Ha Ha Ha !! Never happens...

Anyways, I recieved this lovely award from Clairebears


Thanks honey!
Now, I have to tell you 3 things about myself , and pass it on to 5 more people.
1. I drink for too much coffee, but when i open a new jar, i love to sniff the coffee once i have torn the foil off!!?
2. I have a thing for owls, bats and frogs.
3.I am really challenged on my left side.I cant do my nails sometimes, even in dance class i can move in the rhythm to right , but to the left..? forget it!!!
My 5 bloggers are as follows...

Now, for a little crafty creation, I made this card for the "mint & Choc chip" theme over on Facebooks Sugar Nellies group...

The papers are from the Prima " Jack & Jill" pad, with a little piece of Websters tucked in there... die cut circle is Mariannes, and the image is "Pillow Talk" from Simply Sassy , from Funkykits.The card looks slight less green on here, but the light today is that murky greyness again...
She is of course coloured with my trusty Promarkers... flowers from stash.
So, hopefully I will be back up to speed and posting a little more in the week I'll catch you then.
Thanks for stopping by xx
