The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 38

Hi, guys! Is it really Sunday again? This week has flown by, with visitors and a lot of tidying! It's time again for another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and this time we have a theme of Fairy Tale or Fantasy

Our sponsor is the wonderful Make It Crafty who are offering a $Aus voucher in their fantastic shop!

I'm already a fan, and for my card I used my favourite MiC image, she is adorable, and a dream to colour!


A good friend who loves mermaids is under the weather, so this was perfect timing for a Get Well card.

I used Promarkers (the tiny nibs are an absolute boon for colouring those luscious locks!) and slathered her tail with Stickles. The ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is Whiff of Joy and the die-cuts are Spellbinders - I cut along her fins so I could flip them on top of the die so they didn't get sut with the rest of the image (does that make sense?)

Finally, the starfish were a RAK from my daughter and the papers are by Cosmo Cricket - 'Make A Splash' I think, but they were loose in my papers box - note to self, sort your papers!!!

Do pop over to see the fabulous work that my teamies have done, there's a lot of Fantasy and Fairy Tale inspiration there for you!

Hopefully next week I'll be around more, I apologise for not visiting your fab blogs more often! I've promised myself a nice browse later on, once the housework is done!

Thanks for looking, and have a great week!

love Mags B x
