Creative Inspirations Challenge - DT card + challenges

Good Morning my Dears, well yesterday didn't go to plan, there was no BBQ with my friends, the weather was dreadful, it rained the whole day, so instead we spent the day indoors with all of us ladies mucking in and doing the food, and the MEN!!! pouring the wine and beer. It was still very enjoyable.

Sunday is a new theme day over at Creative Inspirations fortnightly Challenge, this week it was the lovely Gini's turn to choose and she has opted for Using the Oldest thing in your Stash. I didn't have a problem with this one, only a few days ago I found a full box of Cosmo Cricket Papers, embellies etc that I bought when I first started crafting just over a year ago. So that's what I've used on my card. The image is new though and it's called Sugarplum Fairy's from the wonderful Fairy Collection over at Prairie Fairy Designs.

My fellow DT members have come up with some stunning creations this week just for you, so do pop over to the blogs and say thank you.

I must admit to taking the idea for these beautiful wings from Patricia St Martin who entered a beautiful card last week in a challenge. Thank you Patricia.

Our Sponsor this week is the lovely Penny from Creations by Penny, who is giving the winner a choice of 5 images from her store. Do pop over and take a look at her wonderful designs.

I am entering my card into the following Challenges:

1. Flutter by Wednesday Challenge: It's an open theme this week, but of course you must have either a butterfly, Fairy or Angel included in your creation. It's wonderful to have you all back with the challenges girls.

2. Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge: Are looking for an Aperture card this week.

3. The Pixie Cottage Challenge: Have a lovely sketch or Aperture card theme this week.

4. Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge: Are looking for Christmas in July.

Thank you so much for visiting, I'll be back later with my DT card for The Crafty Pad Challenge.

Bye for now. Suzi xx
