StampFairy Challenge - GREEN



Today's Ramblings: Good morning! Blah - Monday (again!!!)
Last week was quite an exhausting work week, I am hoping this week will be a bit more gentler on my mind. Fingers crossed! Had a great weekend - weather was nice, got in some shopping, crafts, and organized most of the basement. I would say I did pretty good!

Today's DT Challenge: The new theme at StampFairy Challenge is GREEN!

Most people would think St.Patrick's Day since it is coming up this week. Well not me! I don't "celebrate" it per se - though when I was younger I would "celebrate" by drinking green beer LOL. Is there really any other way ;)

With that said, I went with Mother's Day even though Mother's Day isn't until May in North America. Might as well get it done early!


I paper pieced this cutie, Toby Love {found here} using Bright Checks paper {found here}:


I finally purchased a MS butterfly punch, unfortunately I kept forgetting to use it until now LOL:Card Ingredients:
StampFairy image and digi papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Rectangle and Beaded Circle Nesties; Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch; EK Success Swiss Cheese punch; Martha Stewart Peridot glitter; wooden buttons; Recollections gems; Primas; Celebrate It ribbons.


I made Toby Love the following challenges:
So be sure to check out the rest of the cutie creations from the rest of the team - you will be amazed.


You should also check out the newest StampFairy release.
You can find Patsy Beachtime {here}:

And just to share with you - we have plenty of Cedar Waxwings that eat from our apple tree. This fatty (amongst 30 of his friends) was posing for me outside my craft room window. The photo turned out pretty well considering my camera had to shoot through a screen window:

Alright, did you catch all that ;)
Have a wonderful day!
