Cute Daisy May Challenge - As You Like It!!

There is an open theme this week over at Cute Daisy May, basically you can make what you like to enter the challenge! I decided to combine Linnie's gorgeous images with one of her Helping Hands templates and this is what I came up with...


I used the Lantern template, the border with the spotty green ribbon strip is supposed to turn upwards, but I placed it pointing downwards as I thought I'd turn the lantern into more of a house shape seeing as I'd used the girl and the fire (I didn't plan this, it's what you'd call a happy accident!!) I also got a little flash from the acetate, but decided to leave the photo as it is as it looked a bit like fairy sparkle lol!!
I used the CDM download sheets 33 and 36 to make the card, I resized the little fairies in my graphics programme and flipped the same fairy image so they faced each other on the roof! CDM sheets are only £1.99 a sheet from here


This past week I tackled the garden, I've found a new found love of mowing and a tolerance to insects, I've really surprised myself!! I have to be careful in the sun though as I burn badly!! I've also had delivery of my Forever Friends TSV and Crafter's Companion Popcorn the Bear Bumper Kit, it was a bit of an extravagance but I can never resist teddy bears so it's back to saving up now!! Haven't had much inspiration this week so I've just been printing things off my computer and making toppers out of stickers ready for when I feel like getting back into crafting again, I hope it's soon!! I'm planning a big colouring-in session today as I haven't done any in ages!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my card for My Time to Craft, a bit of a different one, not a cute one this time!! Thank for looking as always!

Love Becky xx

Great Lantern Becky, and the Daisy May images are fab. Looks like a lot of hard work! Glad to see you have a new found love for mowing, I am lucky, I don't have a lawn, all brick paving! I got the Popcorn Bear stamps, can't wait to use them. Hope you have a good day! Lou x
