Raindrops are like fairy whispers

This card is for Diva coffee break sketch 183:

The fairy image and sentiment (it says: raindrops are like fairy whispers - I hope the silver gems look a bit like raindrops) are from Hunkydory fairy flutterbyes collection. The main background paper is BG porcelain and the diagonal pieces from BG lemonade.

Some more prizes and guest designer slot

Postie brought me a lovely prize this morning - this was for challenge 52 on Creative Card Crew sponsored by Victoria - you can see the challenge here and my card here.

And here are the lovely goodies I received:

I've also won £10 to spend at Nutcrafters for winning the prize for challenge 18 on Nutty Nutshells - you can see the challenge here and my winning card here.

I'm also excited to say that I've been asked to be a guest designer on a challenge blog - I did my card for this yesterday, but, of course, can't show it till the challenge is launched - watch this space in a couple of weeks' time.

Awww ... little angels

For this Christmas card I've used the sketch on Cas-tastic 10:

I used a picture of girl angels from Art Freebies. The background card is black Stardream and the ripped sentiment paper is vellum, with just a tiny piece of scalloped PM 'a Christmas carol' running down the side, with the addition of the stitched ribbon and a sentiment added.

This is another card for this month's 25th club on BF forum, where the subject is 'angels' - I've now done six cards for this - another four to do.

It's also for:
