Charisma Cardz Alter It Challenge

This started life as a box of Arial washing tablets !!! I have been meaning to make a box to keep all my lovely Simon Says Stamps in ever since I saw teamie Iris's fab box ( you can see it here

I used SU paper and some brown/pink coredinations. The letters were cut out on my cricut. the pink card was inked with antique linen ink and the edges distressed using a stitch unpicker/cutter ,,I find these work really well. I coloured various simon Says Stamp images with copics and plonked them on the front :-) I am really happy with this and plan to make more to keep my Magnolia's, Penny Black etc etc :-)

thanks Charisma Cardz Challenge for giving me the push I needed to get around to this :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Funky Fairy's Challenge ;-) Jilly's Sketch :-)

The theme this week on the Funky Fairy's Challenge is to follow the fabulous sketch by Jilly, isn't it lovely !! :-)

The usual rules apply, you must use at least one Funky Fairy Papercrafts image or paper download to enter :-) There are lots of free gorgeous papers to download on the Blog Of Inspiration
so you can try before you buy :-)

For my card I used a brand new paper download called A Lil Bit of Happy This set is just gorgeous and I think is just perfect for all the gorgeous angel stamps out there ! I will be using this ALOT !! :-) I also used some 'Dot's are Distressing' paper to paper piece the dots on the toadstool :-)

As you can see I used one of Janet's lovely Pink Gem images, this one is called Sprinkles on Toadstool,, gorgeous eh !! :-) I also used some Mushrooms from the Simon Says Clear Stamps MUSHROOMS GROW TOGETHER Exclusive Set!

The images were coloured with copics and I used lots of glitter :-) I LOVE glitter LOL
The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set now for those of you who haven't got this set yet, WHY NOT !! It's a fabby sentiment set,,, my fave :-)
