My second post for today - this time for Sweet Stampin' and our theme this week is Childhood Memories.
This week we are sponsored by Tiffany Doodles, don't you just love here digis - particularly the flower ones. Tiffany is offering one lucky winner 5 digis. Our monthly sponsor is the fabulous Joanna Sheen, and the winner will get a £10 gift certificate to spend in her store.
So on to my card about Childhood Memories. As a child we lived in the sticks - down a small lane. Our garden was immaculate in some places, but Dad had an orchard of fruit trees with rambling roses, it backed on to fields and had loads of wildlife as well and that is where my sister and I conjured up most of our imagination. So my memories are of building a fairy den in the orchard where our dolls used to play! The chicken also used to roam there, so you can image we were pretty filthy by the end of the day.
I have used a Lili of the valley image - coloured with Copics. My papers are My Minds Eye - the spotty one is the reverse of the main one. Various punches and dies have been used, and a layer of lace has been used across the bottom panel. The flowers are from WOC - they have been glittered with Stickles, as has the main image..
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Raise the Bar - Flower Power
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Use a die or punch
Delicious Doodles - Fantasy/Mythical - (do you believe in fairies???)
Little Miss Muffet - Die cuts or punches
Divas by Design - Anything goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - Cute and Girly
Flutterby Wednesday - must include a butterly, fairy or angel
