My Time to Craft - GDT - 'Fairytale'

Good Morning.... it's my 2nd week as Guest Designer with the lovely team at



and the fab theme this week is

'Fairytale'

So we want you to make anything to do with Fairytales... Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella... etc... it doesn't have to be a card... as long as you follow the Fairytale theme!


I chose to do Alice in Wonderland... and I found this very cute image at Crafts and Me by the wonderful Hannah Lynn... isn't she gorgeous?!! she's called quite appropriately.... 'The White Rabbit'.  I've used some gorgeous Pink Petticoat papers and gone for a patchwork effect...


 Image: Hannah Lynn at Crafts and Me - 'The White Rabbit'
Papers: Pink Petticoat - 'Isabelline'
Stamp: LOTV - 'Little Stitches' 
Tag Shapes: Digi Stamp Boutique - 'Simple Tags'
Sentiments: computer generated
Gold on Watch: German Glass Glitter 


I've used Promarkers and Copics
a bit of paper piecing...
and finally I've added some sparkles on the watch with Gold German Glass Glitter although it doesn't show up on the photos which is shame! :-(


I really enjoyed making this card... I put on one of my favourite tracks by Stevie Nicks - 'Alice' for inspiration... and it really did seem to help... so I might try crafting with music again... a different song for every card! might be interesting? LOL

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Papertake Weekly - 'Anything Goes' 
Digi Haven - 'Anything Goes' 
Natalie and Amy - 'Fantasy'
Joanna Sheen - 'Spots and Stripes'

Ah well this last week has flown by... I'm hoping for a restful weekend... I might sit out in the garden and read my book for a while today... and then Sunday will watch Poirot in the evening... it looks really good cast!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! :-)
Take Care....
Love and Hugs

Wowie!! She's a Beauty Sue!! Love the Lovely dp's you paired with her too! Just Wonderful!! And if memory serves.. My Art teacher back when I was growing up swore that we all created better with Music than without, something about accessing the right half of the brain ( creative side) etc.. So I will remember to keep that in mind again from now on! lol ;-)

Hugs & Happy Wekend Sweet friend
