The sun has got his hat on...

And it's the weekend :D

I have had quite a crafty week, dabbling with ATC's and making my DT card for Glitter Geeks, where the theme this week is "Wings n Things". It's a great challenge as you can use anything from a butterfly to an aeroplane. I opted to use a wee girl dressed up as a fairy, here is my card, hope you like it.

I stamped the image and coloured her with Promarkers(The Summer Limited Edition are fab for adding bright, deep colours) and Fleximarkers, accenting her wings, wand and shoes with Stickles. The teddy has glossy accents on his nose and the pads of his feet. I layered the image onto a Nellie Snellen die cut shape which I distressed with distress ink. I then layered the image onto paper I discovered in my stash, and added two different types of ribbons to tie in with the colours of the papers.

I would also like to enter her into the following challenges;
Fairy Tale Challenge Blog - Things with Wings.
Delightful Sketches - Distressing
Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Favourite Tool(Mine is my Big Shot used for the die cut)
Shelly's Image Blog - Something that makes you happy (fairies and glitter)
Waste not Wednesday - Forgotten stash...ribbons in my case :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, and makes lots of crafty things :)
