Welcome Little One

Hi all,
I have another card to share with you!
Sorry, it's a fairy! They seem to be right on trend just now! lol
This card is my DT card for the challenge over at
The Crafting Cafe. This month's, theme is 

I've gone a little bit out there this time, with a little fab n funky style!

My card base is a 6 x6 scalloped square.
The DP I have used is from Lidl. 
I always buy a load of these when they have them!
This image was supplied by our sponsor this month

The Stamping Boutique

I used a Martha Stewart Heart punch for the border, wrapped some 
button twine around, then made the flower by layering up some 
hessian flowers which came in a bag from Poundland,
& added a button centre.

Here's a closer look at the image!
I coloured her up with my flexmarkers then cut out with an
oval nestie. I inked with a chalk inkpad then matted onto a scalloped oval.

A little side view to show the decorated inside too!
The sentiment was created on my PC!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my little card!

Bowling Gnome

Good Morning all!
Has everyone got their Gnomes & Fairies CD's from 

La Pashe yet?
I've got mine & I'd like to share this card that I made with you!

It's a type of pop up card!
This little guy is called Bowling Gnome!
What a sweet & cheeky little smile he has!
This card base is 8x8 inch, with lot's of folds and it can stand up on it's own,

a side view to show the folds

but, it folds flat for posting! 
I found a tutorial for this type of card when I was doing a bit of blog hopping.
I thought I had bookmarked the page but it seems not. So, I'm sorry I can't share a link to it!
I will of course keep looking.
I decoupaged up the Gnome using Pinflair glue & popped the sentiment up for 
some added dimension. The only extra embellishments I've added are
 a couple of buttons threaded with a
little bit of recycled twine from a clothes tag.
Thanks for popping in! If you haven't already ordered a CD,
I wouldn't hang about! These guys are very popular!

The good news is, they will be on Create & Craft TV today 
Tuesday 10th March at 10am & 2pm
