Happy Thursday!!  I hope you are all having a good beginning to your day.  Today is crazy for me with posts.  This is my second post of the day, so please feel free to scroll down to my Fall creation in the next post.

Today is day two of sneak peaks at Wags n Whiskers!!  These images are so fun to color and I so have enjoyed seeing the creations my teammates have made.  Today I have the opportunity to share the fairy Rhiannon with you (which will be released tomorrow!!! Woo hoo!!).  I colored her with copics and decided to make a circle card rather than the standard rectangle or square.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Ticket sentiments.

Card Recipe
Stamps: Rhiannon Fairy- Sneak peak from Wags n Whiskers to be release tomorrow
Whimsy Ticket sentiments
Accessories: Prima roses, recollections flower, Lacey Circles Nestabilities, Purple satin ribbon

Stamptacular - Layer It On
The Creative Cottage #24 - bling
Paper Sundaes #38 - something from your stash (my pearl flourishes I hoard!!)
Catch The Bug  - Anything goes
Pollycraft Monday- Anything goes
Alphabet Challenge- w is for wings
Stamp Insanity- metal (gold baubles)
Stamp Something - Something to Celebrate
 Wild Orchid-Stitching
Paper Play- Ribbons, buttons or rhinestones
Karber Monthly challenge- fantasy
  Creative Card Crew- Bloomin Marvelous
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge-shaped cards
Moving along with the times- fairies/fantasy
Gingerloft- All that glitters or blings
Crafty Cardmakers- Step away from the Square

My second creation is for the Divine Diva Challenge.  Lori sent each of the Dt members this photo of packaged soaps:
I was inspired by the black and cream patterned paper in the left corner and by the shape of the label on the one above it.  For my creation, I made a card for a friend who is really suffering with cancer right now.  I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Full of Grace- Pray stampset.

This is a rather simple card for me but I love the simple elegance of the ivory and black and the lace ribbon detail.  I felt the distressed Labels 16 with the sentiment did not to be layered or framed any more.

card recipe:
Our Daily Bread Designs Full of Grace- Pray stampset
paper: Creative Imaginations
accessories: May Arts Ivory silk ribbon, MS punch, lace from my friend Sabrina (Thanks Sabrina!)
