Its challenge time over at Natalie and Amy's and its "Fantasy" xxx

Today's challenge over at Natalie and Amy's is "Fantasy".

So here's my creation where I have used  a Wizard "Trying to Read" from Mo Manning where he is conjuring up more inspiration!!!!!

As always I have coloured in my image with Pro Markers and added stickles here and there.
My papers are once again "First Edition  New Leaf" from Natalie and Amy's.

This fabulous banner is from Hanglar and Stanglar and the sentiment is Magnolia.
Distressed around the edges of the image and inked with distress inks available from Natalie and Amy's.
Better view of overall card but colours not that good once again the light here is really bad today.

Really pleased with the overall card no embellishments!!!! lol  

So pop over to Natalie and Amy's challenge and see the inspiration from the DT and of course enter your creation with a chance to win £15.00 to spend in the shop where you will find gorgeous goodies and all your basic crafty bits and bobs.

Challenges I am entering are:

Paper Crafting Journey  -  Masculine Cards

Well I'm off now to make tea and to link the challenges.

Hope everyone is well and I hope you all have a fab weekend.

Thanks for looking!

Love and Hugs Chanelle xx

Delighted to be GDT over at Forever Friends xx

A big apology to the ladies at Forever Friends as this should have been posted yesterday!!!!

Anyway I'm here at last and with a very special card which is for my Guest DT post over at Forever Friends where the theme is "Pastels"!!! 

It was quite a while back that the design team chose me as there Forever Friends favourite and was unable to do a card but the lovely Diane gave me more than one chance to have another go and I'm so glad she did as it made me start crafting again!!! 

Although this week I have struggled to create with the devastating loss of my precious baby I am please with my design and I know the lovely lady who it's going to will love it.

I just want to say a big Thank You for all your lovely messages about the loss of Dusty.  
The first few nights where so hard I kept hearing here bark to go for a wee as in the last few weeks we have been going out lots but then realised that she wasn't there!!!! 
The house feels so empty and I just feel so lost.
I chose this lovely Teddy from the love range and teamed it with Prima Papers them coloured as always with my pro markers.

Decided to do a tag card instead of my normal 8 x 8 and I love it so you may be seeing more of these.
The inside I stamped around the edges with the rose stamp from the same collection I did this in black and Spun Sugar but the Spun Sugar looks quite smeared on the pictures.
Added some pearl swirls and this lovely pom pom ribbon.
These papers are so feminine just love the soft pastel tones.
Added some foliage with my Magnolia Die and flowers from my stash.

Beautiful co=ordinated ribbon from stash
