Away with the Fairies...

Hi Peeps...

Christine here today, and I'm back in the land of the fairies (YES...ok, enough with the 'away with them more like' thoughts!)...  And today I've used one of the super new Scrapberry Fairies from Sugar Nellie... this one is Fairy Birthday and is available HERE from Funky Kits

As she's quite a large stamp, I decided to go with a CAS style...  to be quite honest, I couldn't fit much else on!  I've seen a lot of the purple/blue colourway around lately - so I thought I'd give that a go too...  I think I like!

There isn't much for me to explain about the card - I used my Copics, and then doodled around the edge with a fine liner.  Then I used lots of Stickles and Glitter - which looks so much better in real life......  ah well...  oooh, and a couple of little punched vellum butterflies too! 

I used the little sentiment that comes with this fairy stamp...  and unusually for me, stamped it after I'd coloured the image......  YIKES..... but it worked! 

Hope you all have a lovely day today...

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..

Frog Princess

Good morning Sugar fans, it's Fi here with your Wednesday post!!

Hopefully when this post schedules it will still be lovely and sunny...only a few more days to go until those little furry cuties will be on sale over at...

For my card above I have used Frog Princess which is available from Funky!!  I coloured this little lady with spectrum noirs.  The papers are MME which I layered onto bazzill card.  I added a ribbon and bow then fixed a rolled flower on top...added some pearls to finish.

SOS Saturday goings on

Hello stampers, hope you week has been enjoyable. The weather is absolutely fantastic here in Scotland and we are all taking full advantage of it.
Saturday seen me thankfull that the shop in Oldmeldrum is on the cool side down stairs. It was once a brewery and very much like a stone cave inside. It made teaching far more plesent than the up stair class room which was like a sauna. I had a lovely calm class with our favourite customers, good day!

These two are such a hoot, Margaret and Connie, lovely ladies who are so very loyal and supportive to Katie. I believe they are to be her bridesmaids one day! 

While I was teaching in Aberdeenshire, the rest of my family were attending an agricultural show in the other direction. Nairn Show was the first even that my 15 year old son James competed in the catle section. He's has been traing, washing, booming and spending every night for such a long time with Dutchess his calf. Stress levels were up, long hours, an early start and just the all round buzz ment both James and Dutchess where exhausted by the time the came home with 4th place.

It's a great learning experience for our young farmer, who has decided not to stay on at school next year. With a life time of farming in front of him, he's off to a good start. He is more interested in the animal side of the farm but is coming around more to machinery and crops. 

It will be a few years before he can take over from his father, we would like for him to go else where for a couple of years and see farming from another prospective , be employed and learn more before coming home. By then, maybe those grandchildren of ours will have made an appearance and we can retire leaving the farm to James. That's the plan.

Hope all your plans work out this coming week.
Take care and see you for the blog hop and new release of Furry Friends next weekend.

Trip to the Park

Good morning Sugar Friend
Without further ado here's my card for this week.  This cute stamp is an oldie but a goodie called 'Trip To the Park' and is still available from Funkykits -  in both rubber and digital format.  

 I decided to go for a CAS card this week, but I wanted a tent fold card in a coloured cardstock so created the card base myself.  The zig-zag cut out was made using my Silhouette Cameo, but I know that there are dies and border punches out there that will give you the same effect. I coloured the cute image with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics, then fussy cut her out and raised her up onto the zig-zag card. To finish I added a little glitters and some flowers.
For more info of all the things I've used to make my card, why not visit my blog here.
See you in 2 weeks.
