A Fairy for Cute Daisy May, and a Monster for BBTB

BBTB day today, and Regina (who knows how to set a challenge!) asked us to use the monster cut from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I had found these ready made spiders web cards in the dollar bin at Joannes, so as I was short of time used that as a base. The paper doll and monster costume was cut at 4", once in black, and the head part twice in green, I sandwiched a pair of google eyes in between the two green layers. The spiders were cut from the same cartridge, at 2" and given some googly eyes



The trick or treat sentiment is from the halloweenies download from Polkadoodles

and the inside of the card is lined in another halloweenies download, with a strip of drippy goo at the top


On Cute Daisy May, the challenge was fairies, and I chose this little cutie, coloured with copics and perched on a folded over prima flower









the papers are all by MAMBI, the ribbon is Martha Stewart and I threaded some pearls through the knot

The sentiment circle is a chocolate button from Craftwork Cards in the UK




I always phone home on a Sunday whilst we are here in the USA, to catch up with my kids. Yesterday my little granddaughter aged 5 was in a chatty mood

"I made a fruit salad for my homework Ma"

"Did you darling, how lovely, did you eat it?"

"Don't be silly Ma, I only drawered it"

"Oh right, I see, and what did you draw?"

"A banana, an orange and a pineapple"

"How clever, a pineapple is very hard, I don't think I could draw a pineapple"

"Don't worry Ma, next time you come to play with me, I will show you how to draw a pineapple. The pointy bits are quite hard, but I will show you how to do it"



so watch this space, soon you may see a card with a beautiful hand drawn pineapple, because I am getting a lesson on how to do the pointy bits.............................

I do envy you the time with your grandkids! Enjoy every minute you can. They grow so fast. My grandsons are already in their 20's
and I didn't get to spend much time with them as we lived so far apart.
I'll be looking for the pineapple and especially the pointy bits!
Love your cards as always. TS

Both cards are great. I especially like the effect of folding the flower over. And wouldnt we be lost without the wee ones showing us around the world and how to do things?
