Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week!!  Today I want to share a springy creation with you although we have a winter warning for a Nor-easter here and can get up to 10 inches of snow.  UGH!!!!  Is it spring yet?

Today is a new challenge at Wags n Whiskers!!  This week the challenge is to use ribbons and lace on your creation.  Easy Peasy right!!!

We hope you can all join in!!

Wags n Whiskers challenges are every other week.

This will give you more time to be able to participate with our challenges.

One random participant will win a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of your choice.
You can still use any stamp you would like, but if you use a Wags 'n Whiskers image, you will also be entered into a separate drawing for a free Wags 'n Whiskers Digital Stamp.

Well on to my creation...I used the fun Liali fairy from Wags n Whiskers and colored her up with copics.  Rather than use the traditional square or rectangle shape, I decided to use my grand caliber and my new Grand Labels die from Spellbinders!!

The dp is from Basic Grey Hello Luscious.  The image is framed with the Spellbinders Beaded Ovals and the classic ovals dies.   Each of the beaded ovals has a pink rhinestone on it. The lace is tear drop lace available at Stamp and Create.

When I went to visit my mom last month, I tried my hand at crocheting a flower.  Granted it took me a long time and I needed a lot of assistance from Mom but here is the result.  I place a Prima trellis rose in it and added some other white prima roses next to it.

The bow is tied with the Bow Easy and White Ribbon from May Arts.  The white background behind the image is embossed with Provocraft Spots folder.

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Amber's Crafts and Stuff -  use flowers
Flutterby Wednesdays must include butterfly, fairy or angel - buttons and bows
Paper Pretties - bling
Pixie Cottage - stitching
