Our challenge this fortnight at Craft Your Days Away is..... Easter!!! A nice easy one for this time of year.
My designer paper is DCWV All Occasion stack. I love the bright spring colors in this stack paired with bright pink cardstock.
The flower is a trim that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. The leaf is a SB die.
My Stamp Fairy image is called bunny 1. Stamp Fairy has such cute images. The color up so quick and are such a joy to color with my Copic's. I cut the image with a SB using a cut off the die technique.
My felt butterfly was in with some stick pins from a stick pin swap that I was in.

My DP is Painted Petal by DCWV. I love that they are bright and muted at the same time. The pad has yellows, greens, purples and blues. They are all very beautiful. I distressed all the papers with my TH distress tool.
My sentiment is a Studio G stamped with Concord Grapes distress ink. I used a portion of a SU Framelit die to get the shape. I thought the sentiment was just perfect for this splashin cutie.
My flower is made from mulberry paper and I got it from my friend at Pizzazz Aplenty. Judy's prices are unbelievable, so make sure you check her site out.
The leaves are the same DP cut with Spellbinders leaf die.
Stamp Fairy's Patsy was colored with Copics. I added Stickles to the umbrella, bow, collar and the ruffle under her raincoat.

Pink Wishes - It is time for another fun challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog. We are up to D and D is for...... Dry Embossing.
I went out of my comfort zone on this one and dry embossed on printed paper. I must say that I like the result, so I am sure that I will try it again soon. My folder is CB's Victoria.
DP is Pressed Petals, Baby Girl. I paired the DP with a bright green. Pink and Green is one of my favorite color combo's, so I was happy to use it here.
My flowers and tulle with pearls are from the wedding section at Hobby Lobby. It is one of my favorite area's to shop from. Everything from that department is so elegant and it just dresses up my crafts. My ribbon is from Pizzazz Aplenty. They have such great prices and the rolls are huge. I usually pay more for a small than what I paid for this roll of 25 yards for.
I gave her dress and wand tip a coat of Stickles. What is a fairy witch without sparkle?

Now here is the good news for you! You too can play with their toys!!!! Everyone who votes is entered to win a $50 Heartfelt Creations gift certificate. You don't want to miss out on this. They have such pretty stuff, some of the best on the market.
These 3 projects are the ones that I submitted for the design team call. I really like them and I think they showcase my work well.
The first one is an image that I colored with Copics and the card was my husband's valentine card. I love coloring with Copics and actually the image was a homework assignment for an on-line class that I am taking.
My second project is a card that I made for a DT project. The challenge was vintage. I have had the supplies for a while and I was excited to get to use them. I love pink and this card was a really fun one for me to play with.
I have some other fun projects that will be posting next week, so if you like what you see here, come back next week to see what I have been working on.

This is the the sketch for this challenge. I love the banner element in it. I flipped it upside down for my card.
The image is part of the set of Super Hero Girls. It is a good buy, as you get a lot of images to include 3 different super girls, a car and a spotlight, that reminds me of the one used to signel batman. This one I thought liiked like Wonder Woman.

My DP is Prima. I didn't even know they made paper, then I found this stack in a box. I think they were for children, but I really like the muted colors.
My sentiment is Hot off the Press stamped with mememto black ink. I inked all of my paper images with the moss distress ink. I used to of SU punches for the sentiment, then 2 brads.
My 7 year old grandson just told me that this is my best card yet. He is my biggest fan. Big hugs, Tyler!

For my card I used Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage DP. It is double sided, so I only had to cut one sheet of paper.Yea!!!!
My image is SU's Apothecary, which I stamp with Ranger's Victorian velvet distress inks. It was cut with SU Framelit, inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The sentiment is also from SU's Apothecary set, stamped in black Memento. I added some springtime Flower Soft on the center of some of the flowers, then added the 3 tiny pearls.

St Patrick's Day is just around corner. I hope none of you have your pincers out. LOL
For my card, I used a new designer paper pack by DCWV. It is called Painted Petals and it has the most yummy colors in it. I have used the green and yellow palette today. I love that the green has some blue-greens in it. I inked the edges with Iced Spruce distressed ink. It is difficult to see.
