Creative Card Crew and Tilda and Friends ATC Challenges

The theme this week at the Creative Card Crew Challenge is 'Pretty flowers'. And here is the card I have made...

I was having a play with my new Fiskars threading water punch yesterday afternoon when some gorgeous Flora Doodles stamped images landed on my door mat from the lovely Jill (thanks so much Jill!) I think I may have to purchase some of these beauties after having a play and seeing Jill's cards made with them too! I coloured the little fairy with glitter pens and did some punching with my Woodware scallop circle punches. Finally I added some pretty flowers, card candy and a Daisy and Dandelion stamped message.

And the challenge this week at Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge is to use more than one character...

I used my new Stampavie piggies stamp for the first time. It was Dylan's idea to colour one of the pigs pink and one of them black, I think they look good coloured this way! I coloured them with watercolours and placed them onto Basic Grey paper with a few flowers and a little sentiment.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me. We are all a bit under the weather at the mo, coughs and colds and sore throats and swollen glands and headaches. It's a good excuse to sit in though and watch DVDs and do some crafting while the weather decided what it wants to do!
Have a great day!

Love Becky xx

Love the piggie site. Just wanted to say I only found your site today and it’s really cool. You’ve been very busy and have so many good ideas. Your creations are really cute. I write a London based crafty e-zine and blog named Extremely Crafty Ideas at http://extremelycrafty.blogspot.com/ Would love to hear what you think. You and some of the other card crafters I’ve recently found have inspired me to write an upcoming card craft e-zine!
