Sweet Stampin - Green

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog. This fortnight, Team Abi would like you to show us something GREEN, in honour of St Patrick's Day.
We have two Sponsors for this challenge. Our first is our March sponsor Joanna Sheen
 and our second sponsor is The Emerald Faeries, who very generously donated the images we used on our cards. 
I had convinced myself that this little fairy was a boy fairy until I discovered that its name is 'Ebony'. Not a very blokey name if you ask me. I really don't think that fairies would mind being mistaken for the wrong sex. I think that they are just happy to fly around and ..... (all children look away now!) or at least they would be happy if they were real. Not that I actually thought they were real of course.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy #58 Fairies
Simply Create Too #9 Spring
Crafty Sentiments Things with Wings
Pop on over to the girls at Sweet Stampin and check out the fabulous creations. I am off to do some cleaning as there seems to be some glittery sparkly stuff on my pillow.

Green or Good Luck #110

This week over at Paper Sundaes we are letting you choose between making a Green card or a Good Luck card. I decided to do a Good Luck card coloured in pinks.... but that didn't quite turn out - as you can probably see. 

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamps and I have used Magnolia Watercan Tilda together with CC Design field fence. AND, can you believe it - I even masked my image. Yes the whole post it note, stamp image, cut it out, stick it on, stamp over it, practice on scrap paper first - yes that Masking technique. (Gee do I think that I am clever) 

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 
PartyTime Tuesday #57 Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz #8 Masking Technique (Winner! $20 voucher from Simon Says Stamps. Yippee!) 
Card Makin Mammas #40 Green

Check out the variety of creations that my fellow team members have come up with right here.

Sweet Stampin - Nature

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog. This fortnight we would like to you to "get back to Nature". Not literally of course, otherwise we would be called the Sweet Stampin Outdoor Adventure Blog. 

We want you to create a project that shows us ... NATURE, in particular, bugs, bees and ladybirds. 
Our regular monthly sponsor - Joanna Sheen and our challenge sponsor - Crafty Emmas Store have some great prizes to give away.
I have used my Magnolia Tulip Wheelbarrow and for all of you that have this stamp and just don't remember those ladybirds - no need to run and check - you are right - they are a tucked in extra. My T2, T4 and T6 Copic markers got a good workout with this image and the background paper I have used is from My Minds Eye 'On the Bright Side'. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 
Magnolia Stamp Lovers Punch challenge
The Cutie Pie Challenge Flowers
Deep Ocean Challenge #20 Spring
Flutterby Wednesday #192 Open 
Do you Stack Up #61 Things with Wings
