Funky Fairy says... "Stamp!"

... so I did! I avoid stamping. I buy stamps to make myself learn & still don't! I kept it simple & was still challenged outside my comfort zone. Guess that's why they're called challenges!

A Mechanical Card

Rainbow Lady's challenge this week is "Gardens". I've been wanting to try a mechanical card for ages so this was my chance! 

Work in progress, I think, to improve the cutting out & the exact placing of the greeting, but it was fun having a go.

Recycling -DCM Challenge

My first DCM challenge -recycling.  The "merci" & ribbon are from a card I received. I often recycle but don't dare give the cards in case I accidentally offend whoever gave it to me!

A Bird in the Hand...

Not sure what came over me here - I am NOT a Sesame Street fan! But there does seem to be a Big Bird influence happening here! Rainbow Lady & her Bird Challenge may never recover!

Bloomin' Bright!

My Time to Craft ribbons challenge and fiddling, a ribbon frame took shape. This resulted: a playschooler's riot of delight -ribbon, mesh, felt, wooden flowers, lots of fun, but probably OTT for most of my friends! Keep changing my mind as to what I think...

Three Dee

I enjoyed making a frame card earlier this year so I tried a different take on the Arty Girlz 3D challenge: the image going into the card rather than coming out. I love the effect of framing.

The Inch by Inch challenge is to use a word starting with the initial of your first name -sew here's mine! Well that's what I thought the challenge was -duh! I had sew much fun creating this inchy -but the result is only sew-sew: I didn't see you were supposed to include things starting with the initial too! But hey -we all know that the old fashioned word "button" has been replaced by the much more user friendly expression "Sew-able/on-able/fastener" which quite obviously starts with -sew I'm not as stupid as I seem. Then there's stitching & strands - and obviously I'm clutching at straws!!!

Pink and Black plus One

Thanks to Rainbow Lady for having pink in her challenge! To be combined with black & 1 other colour. Two firsts here -for ages I've wanted to give a spiral jotter a new lease of life & I've been wondering how to make those cheery ribbon flowers. This was great fun to create!
