New Dilly Beans Challenge

 The holiday is going too fast!!!
Anyway here is the challenge for this week at Dilly Beans- To use one of the images on a project or card based on YOU.
That's why i drew the specs on- i am as blind as a bat without them.
One of my jobs in school is often to sort out any friendship issues or bullying , so I thought the heart flowers were perfect for this. I am always trying to spread a little "peace, love and happiness" - also some laughter too.

The image is coloured with copic pens and glossy accents applied to the "glasses".

Do pop over to the main blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

A Prima Boy Doll!!

 At last! I was thrilled when Prima brought out a "boy" doll :) ...Meet Aiden.
I bought him as soon as he was available here in the UK and couldn't resist making a quick tag.

 I have also treated myself to a lovely script background stamp as I do like the way they look stamped onto the face. I have used it on the spellbinder diecut too.

 I even managed to use up some old stickers  and can you remember buying loads of the word "button" thingies- I think we attached them to pages with brads?

 He is popped up onto the tag with 3D foam.

I have a couple of other posts schedualed for today but thats it for a while as all my craft supplied are being boxed up ready for me to decorate and rearrange. I have loads to do and it needs to be done in the next week eeekkkk!! 
I will be back -hopefully with some photos (i am ashamed of the "before" ones though).

Sweetpea stamps -Fairy Challenge

 Late posting for the Sweetpea Challenge- This week we are using Fairies on our projects. I have used Helena Reis's Faylinn digi stamp.

 I coloured her with copic pens and added lots of glitter on her wings.
You may recognise some of the die cut mounts from the last card - I love the spellbinder gold dies and need to get some more :)

 While searching though my stash , I found some sticky glitter "paper" and cut it to go behind the pink mount.
The background paper is Graphic 45 .

 The sentiment is also diecut.

Dilly Beans - No designer/patterned papers

 Late posting again!! Thank heavens I can count down the days now until the end of term. This time of the yeat is nearly as busy as Christmas as we have so many lunches and retirement parties to attend as well as all the end of the year stuff to do.
Anyway - this has been on my desk for most of the week , just needing assembling.
I DO love this stamp !
Coloured with copic pens and a white gel pen to highlight.

 No designer papers meant it was all about ther colour and a chance to use some pretty dies to cut the papper with.

 I applied glossy accents to the eyes .

Please go to the main blog for some more inspiration from the FAB design team and details of how to enter this challenge.
