I am so thrilled to say that I have been chosen to form part of the DT at the Emerald Fairies!!

make a gif

woo hoo, so fun... these fairies are a darling, couldn't believe the news today :D 

So I had three posts in a day not two... doesn't happen very often!

I'm off for a rest now as been out all day today to the wedding.


A Sketch

My second post for the day. .. and this time I have my DT Card for the new challenge at

The theme is Spring into Easter with a Sketch

And we are sponsored by Lili of the Valley

and of course our monthly sponsor Joanna Sheen

Not having an Easter themed LOTV image to use I decided on this darling fairy instead, which I think spells Spring as well. I coloured her with my promarkers, and then added some stickles glitter on her wings... yes you guessed it, got it from NEC as well.... as the beautiful papers and the Memory Box scroll die.

Other stuff were in my stash and the border die I think it is Cherry Lynn. Jo had cut it for me while I was there :D Lovely isn't it..and I'm not thinking anything naughty.. no buying now for a very long time- I'm broke!

Some challenges now
Lili's Little Fairies - ANYTHING GOES
Stempelsonne 58 - 1 STAMPED IMAGE, 2 DP, 3 FLOWERS, 3 PEARLS
Wags 'n' Whiskers 76 - SAY IT WITH FLOWERS

Wishing you a lovely weekend

EDIT  to add another challenge at Milk Coffee Challenge with the theme of FLOWERS.. ..thanks to Shirl for letting me know.


It's a Public Holiday here in Malta today, celebrating Freedom day and we are off to a Wedding party this morning. .. I'm really looking forward to go as the wedding reception is at the same place where we had our wedding when we got married... such a long time ago..

So onto my card now as today I have two cards and for my first one I am sharing my DT Card for Stamp Fairy, which happens also to be my last one as a DT for Stamp Fairy. I have been on this team for quite a long time now, since 2010, so it is a good time to move on. 

Stamp Fairy today is sponsoring Craft Your Days Away and the theme for this week is EASTER

For my card I am using the cute Barry from the Barry Easter 1 collection. I coloured Barry with my promarkers and used some pretty papers from my stash. I had made this card before I left to the NEC so no new goodies on my card today. The grass is a Die Namics die, while the centre one is Spellbinders. I did the corners using a Fiskars punch.

Some challenges, all EASTER themed

Thank you for looking today

Bead It

Well finally!!.. I managed to use some of my new goodies woot woot :D Before I had left last week I hadn't managed to finish my DT Card for this week's new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers, so obviously my hands went on my new stuff to make this card.
Of course, not everything on this card is new, just some of it, like the Memory Box scroll die, the Marianne Creatables border die, and the pretty pink ribbon, all goodies which I got from the NEC. The paper is an oldie one from Papermania, which I had for a very long time ...

... and the gorgeous beads were a gift from Karen. So beautiful I think, and she made them herself too.. o wow!! and lucky me too :) .. just in time and perfect for our BEAD IT Challenge this week!

We are this week sponsored by Digi Doodles Shops Best and all DT girls could all choose an image to play with. I used this beautiful image, Spring Gathering, which I have of course coloured with my promarkers. The prize for the lucky winner is a $10 Gift Certificate from the store.

At the NEC

Hello hello I'm back.. back to the real world as Gemma commented on Facebook today.. so true!!! Not a very good time to be posting but I had so much housework to do and I couldn't let today go by without letting you know how I went ... which obviously was VERY GOOD .. thanks to Jo and Greg who went out of their way to make my stay with them a very happy one and made me feel so welcome and at home :D 

Some photos now of course.... the best for the last he he

Here, Friday, we were clothes shopping in Cardiff .. fabulous sunny weather, was so lucky.

Back home outside Jo's lovely home.

And on Saturday - the BIG DAY - at the NEC in Birmingham! I couldn't believe myself that I got emotional while waiting to get in! Really I did! We were there early at 9.00am and ME, being so excited,  had got up at 5.00am .. just couldn't sleep!

Here, Jo and me did some shopping at the LOTV stand.

We met the sweet Gemma

I also had the opportunity for some crafty time with the celebrity crafter Stephanie Weightman .. O WOW!

And finally... me with all my goodies back home at Jo's

I'm back! .. not from UK of course.. still to go there.. but from our weekend away. We had a lovely relaxing time together, which we rarely have time for, loved it! Of course it meant having to stay away from blogland! I'm so sorry I'm being away so much lately, please girls excuse me as this week I also have it full to the brim..... Today, my brother comes for a holiday from Australia, staying for eight weeks, so I'm off to the airport after work, Wednesday I have a full day course and then I have to pack and on Thursday I flyyyyyy :D woo hoo so exciting, can't wait to meet up with Jo and to go to the Craft Fair together :D  I'm also really hoping to meet up with lots of  you my blogger friends, but I didn't see that anyone else is going. So let me know ok :)

Anyway, on to my card now. It's Tuesday today and so time for a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments. This week the theme is CONGRATULATIONS and so I decided to do a Wedding Card.
The images that I used today are one of my faves at Crafty Sentiments, Billy Groom and Primrose Bride,  coloured them with my promarkers..

.. the paper is Papermania, an oldie one from my stash, and the pretty little flowers are a Martha Stewart punch. Quite a simple card today, but I loved how it turned out.

The prize for this week's winner is this gorgeous rubber stamp.

Here is now a preview of some of the fabulous new images being released at Crafty Sentiments next month.... Look at all those smiley faces, so cute and fun :D
