Eyes Down

Good morning from a beautiful sunny Blackpool. Yesterday was gorgeous - 20 degrees! I had a wonderful weekend with the boys. On Saturday I had a bit of a party for Harrison as it is his fourth birthday on Friday so everyone came round and we were even sat in the garden!  Very worn out when they went though.  Sorry I have been quiet I have been so busy with everything that I have had very little time for blogging but I hope to catch up on things over the next few days.

Today is a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this challenge is Bingo so eyes down and clickety click as they say!

I have used one of my favourites - Twinkle Fairy available here. I coloured her in using Copics with some Liquid Pearls and Glamour Dust. The papers are First Edition called Boho Chic and I used an old sketch from Papertake Weekly.  I cut the image out using Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax and mounted it using their Oval Stax I also used their mini Scallop Border for the borders.  The corners are Whimsy dies and the sentiment is LOTV.

Here is the Bingo Board:

Just choose any line either horizontal, vertical or diagonal and make sure to include the three element on your card. I chose the diagonal line: Rubber Stamp - check, Die cut - check and Ribbon - check!  We have a wonderful prize for the lucky winner:

Please go over to the Crafty Sentiments Challenge and see the rest of the DT work and for all the details of the challenge.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cutie Pie Challenge - All The Threes (I used three Design Papers)
Love to Create - Love of Ribbon
Sentimental Sunday - Kraft Card stock

Well I am having a crafty day today - so much to do!! Hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you sooooo much for looking and the lovely comments, take care xx
