I'm so excited to be this week's Guest Designer for the CRAFTY CREATIONS Challenge Blog. Thank you to Bernie and the rest of the lovely ladies on the team for inviting me! Many of you know how much I love to add bling bling to my projects so this week's SPARKLE ~ LET IT SHINE challenge is perfect for me ~ woohoo! Even my papers sparkle this time~ lol. The pic doesn't show it but the DP has shiny red stripes going through it and the butterflies have lots of glitter. This week's generous sponsor is Wags 'n Whiskers.
School's out in 7 days so I thought I'd make a thank you card for one of the teachers. Papers are from the DCWV School Pack stack. I've used an older Magnolia stamp called Tilda with Slate from the So Heavenly, Travel & School Collection (2008) and paper pieced her clothing with DP from the DCWV pack. I then coloured directly on the DP with my Copics to add a bit of depth to the clothes. I used the following Copics to colour the rest of the image (E0000, E00, E01, E11, R20, R000, R01, R02, R05, R29, Y0000, Y11, Y13, Y15 Y17, B91, E23, E25, E27, E50, C1, C2, C3 & C5) and then added 2 small red rhinestones to the centre of the ribbons on Tilda's shoes. Rhinestone swirls + gems, ribbon and star charm hanging from ribbon are all from my stash.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
- Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar ~ Paper Piecing
- Everybody Art ~ Anything Goes
- A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Ribbons and Bows
- Aly's Sunday Challenge ~ All About Kids

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you might leave which always brighten my day. Just want to let you know I'll be slowing down with crafting and blogging during the summer so I can spend quality time with family. But I'll still be posting albeit sporadically.
Pop by on Saturday for a peek at my next post. Big Hugs to you all.
