Flower Faries Cute Daisy May DT

First of all I have to apologise to all the entries for last weeks challenge, I went away for the week so wasnt able to visit you all, but in the words of Arnie I will be back!

This week at Cute Daisy May is Flower Power.
My first thought was Austin Powers but with the best will in the world I couldn't put any Daisy onto a psychodelic (not sure thats how you spell it) card, she is just too cute.

In the end I decided to go for my own version of camouflaged Flower Faries, which meant I got to play with a few different faries.

The flowers are from Fred she Said Designs
Faries are from Sheets 17 and 18, which you can purchase Here

Finally got round to taking rest of photos of this card and bookmark I made.
The image is a Digi image from Elizabeth Bell
Papers are from Fancy Pants.
Coloured with copics.
Bookmark is a tag from the same set of papers that I have triple embossed on both sides and added tag which I also coloured with copics to match the colouring on the card. Sorry photo not too great as was raining again!
Allsorts Tag Ticket or Label


This little cutie was downloaded from Hiedi and coloured with my Copics.
I coloured the brads with Copics to match the papers The dragonfly which I cut using a spellbinders die cut, from parchment paper was also coloured with copics and the wings were then sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Unfortunately it doesnt show up very well but IRL the dragonfly really glistens.
Papers were from my Costco Collection and Ric Rac pinched from Big Sis.
I made this card for the Copic Creation Challenge, although having read the post properly this time it is supposed to have an easter theme!!!!! Perhaps it will count for an easter holidays pastime??????

MIL's Birthday

Its my mother in laws birthday today and I had to make her something a bit different after she informed me that she has kept every card I have ever made her. this is my first attempt at making a word card and im quite please with how it turned out.

I cut the letters with my craftrobo with a little bit of help from a cuddly buddly download. The papers are all Anna Griffen
Flowers are punched with Nellie's Choice punches, and corners with a Martha Stewart corner punch which I just adore.
And not a stamp in sight, all in all I kept the card very simple and let the papers do all the work lol.
Im going to enter this into Creatalicious Challenge No stamps allowed.
Belli Challenge is Ribbons
Course when I was merrily making this card I didnt take into consideration that I would need an envelope and of course I didnt have one that it went into so had to make my own, which have to say Im glad I did.

CDM DT - Lavender and Lace

It's Wendy's turn to set the challenge for Cute Daisy May and she would like to see what you come up WITH for the theme of LAVENDER AND LACE
Linnie draws the cutest images that so go with this theme that it took me longer to choose my image than make the card. (Please don't say it shows though).

I finally settled on this little cutie which you can find on
Sheet 4 Here. Linnie has been incredibly busy and there is soo many new images to purchase and at £1.99 for 6 images you cant go wrong. Or if your not sure about digi images why not pop over and grab the freebie to give them a try out and of course join in with our challenge.

The papers are from Joanna Sheens lace papers and DCWV brights Stack. As the lace paper is so intricate I kept the rest of the card very simple. I used my nesties to cut the matting for the image and coloured her with Copics. I threaded lavender velvet ribbon through my lace and thats it.

The Secret Crafter challenge is monochrome tones of one colur and white.

Challenge 13

This little cuty is one of the new Lilybean faries from Pollycraft.
I think I must have been feeling a bit green when making this one and think it may be a bit too much green.
I have followed the sketch from the Basic Grey Challenge which is by Martine, I really liked this sketch and am sure I will be using it again.
Papers are Basic Grey Porcelain Paper.

Deviant Art

I was asked to do a card using this image that I got from Deviant Art and the colour yellow and this is what I came up with. I am really pleased with how this turned out.
She is coloured in copics, with liberal usage of distress inks, papers are My Minds Eye. The flowers are felt and I have added a button from the Blossom set.
I have even managed to find a challenge to enter her into Robyns Fetish wants to see cards with an Asian Influence and Floral Fantasies Moving - I'm going on the lines that the pikachu balloons move.
And also Copic Creations which is feather blending which I did with the hair

Merry Go Round - Moving

My beautiful Carousel Horses arrived last weekend and I couldn't wait to colour them up.

Now my Darling Other Half has always liked a challenge and when he saw these beauties he reckoned they really should be on displayed on an old fashioned Merry Go Round (Just like in Mary Poppins)Well who was I to stop him from designing me one. (You just cant accuse me of spoiling all his fun)
After several hours of programming my Craftrobo and copious amounts of swearing (air blue springs to mind)such as oops I did that wrong never mind!!!!!!!! I'll start again. LOL This is the finished result.

Sorry these are not great photos as it is raining here so had to take them in doors.
For some reason these have ended up really dark. But you should get the idea.
All the horses I have coloured with Copics
Some I have added Sakura Glitter Pen

And these ones I used Fluffy Stuff and Ultra Fine Glitter.

The little mirrors were cut with my nestabilities

Lattice work is my fab Martha Stewart punch (I just so love these)

Definately think me and my OH make a good team, what do you think?
I am going to enter this into the Floral Fantasies Challenge Moving, which they say can be interpreted in any way well I reckon a Merry go Round has got to count as moving, who have a fab prize for there first challenge which is sponsored by Sir Stampalot.

And just because I love this and those beautiful horses I am also going to enter it into Bt the Cute and Girly
which is Love but can be interpreted in any way including stash that you love.
