ABC Challenge - X is for ..... and Charisma Cardz #2

Good morning, and isn't it lovely to have some sunshine after the dreadful weather we have had. I am glad to be back crafting after my hectic weekend away but I have so much to catch up on ... I promise to visit you all this weekend - you know what it is like!

So, onto this weeks ABC Challenge and the theme this week is to have an 'X' somewhere on your card.

I have interpreted it as a kiss, afterall I put lots of x's at the end of my letters, cards and emails. I am loving all my new BG papers and am now wondering how I managed without them! I didn't have any sparkly cream coloured brads so I used these little white brads and heat embossed them with enchanted gold embossing powder - now they are just right!

A closer look at the cute little couple .... they are so in love aren't they :o)

Make sure you pop over to see the rest of the DT cards and check back on there later to find out who won last weeks prize.
Image coloured with prismas, sakura stardust to hearts, paper from BG Bittersweet pad, flowers from poppicrafts, cuddlybuddly sentiment, nesties, brads and fibre from stash


Here is my card for this week for Charisma Cardz . The theme this week is Fantasy.

My card is one a made a little while ago (hence the scan instead of photo) but I wanted to enter it because I just love fairies and don't seem to make many cards with them on any more. There is also a bit of stitching around as a border - gee it seems a while since I had my needle out, might have to give it a dusting off!

Last of all, a great big thankyou to everyone who has given me an award over the last week - I am planning a mammoth post to thank you all and to pass on the awards to the next lot of lucky bloggers ... you have been warned .... better bring a cuppa and a comfy chair.

Enjoy your day!

Ooh I lurve that fairy and your stitching is beautiful. You should get your needle and threads out again but if they are lost you can go back to the Range with the feeble excuse of buying a rubbish bin lol. xxx
