Sitting Pretty Gift Set + Challenges

Hi Friends, I've been so busy this last week catching up with my DT responsibilities that I didn't have time to make anything for the wonderful challenges. So yesterday I visited some of my favourite challenge blogs and took elements from them to come up with this creation.

I think it's lovely but there is an error on the sweetie box. I picked up the wrong promarker to colour the wings and instead of pale pink I ended up with cocktail pink. Oh well these things happen, and I really couldn't be bothered printing out another image. I'm sure who ever receives it won't notice (fingers crossed)

The challenges that gave me the inspiration are:

1. One Stitch at a Time Challenge: Would like to see anything but a card. So I'll enter the box just please Stitchy. Just ignore the card hun.

2. Charisma Cradz Challenge: Are looking for a sweet treat, my box will be filled with either home made choccie's or Scottish tablet. (promise)

3. Stamp Something: Would like to see us Celebrate something this week

4. Allsorts Challenge: Birthday Blog Hop this week, I've already done the hop and made a card but thought I'd enter this one too. If it doesn't qualify then no problem girls.

5. Papertake Weekly Challenge: Say it with Flowers this week

6. Pollycraft Monday Challenge: Are asking us to use our Summer Blooms

7. Die Cut Dreams Challenge: This week would like to see some Lace

8. A Spoon full of Sugar Challenge: Are looking for Cute & Girly

9. Passion for Promarkers Challenge:
Would love to have a bit of Fantasy/Mythology. I think my sweet fairy is a bit of both.

10 Crafty Cardmakers Challenge: Would like to see Inside Out. It's the inside of the card that's important this week.

Well I think that's all for now folks. Hope you are all having a wonderful day.
Thank you for visiting, I do hope you will come back and see me again soon.

Hugs Suzi xx
