CRAFTY CALENDAR CHALLENGE - JANUARY - MYTHICAL CREATURES (fairies, goblins, pixies, dragon's etc)

Happy New Year to you all - hope you had a good one whether you celebrated or not!  I hate New Year so I was tucked up in bed with me hot water bottle fast asleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!

So - here's my first card for 2018.  Over at the Crafty Calendar Challenge site we have a theme of Mythical Creatures - examples are in the title of the post but if you can think of anything else we'd love to see what you come up with.  I used 'Growing a Flower' from a Day for Daisies - isn't she gorgeous?

Ages ago I was having a play with some spritzy colours and ended up with a piece of paper that I put away for 'ron'.   When I knew that our challenge was mythical this paper said it all - so I coloured the fairy with her flower in the same lilac and turquoise shades.  I also used those colours for the die cuts although I sprayed the toadstool with Pearl spray (Crafters' Companion) afterwards. 

Our challenge runs until 28 January and we have two absolutely fantastic sponsors


Pop on over to the Crafty Calendar Challenge and check out the work of my teamies, we'd love you to join in (here).

Bye for now, just off to give Biscuit his medicine, he has his stuff for his kidneys and every other day (ie today) he has to have an aspirin to stop him having a 'stroke' in his kidneys.  We'll do anything to keep him as healthy as possible 'cos he really is gorgeous.

Hugs to you all

Love  Suexxx
