Challenge #77 Birthday Fun for SAS4Kids

It's time to make some Fun Birthday Cards over at
for this Challenge are
Dollar Graphics  - $15 Gift Certificate
Bugaboo  - 7 digi images of Winner's Choice
QKR Stampede - 5 digi images of Winner's Choice
Now what can be more fun than to
eat yummy cake?
My image is from Bugaboo. I didn't need to colour
too much of this great image just a little pink
with some Kindy Glitz on the cupcake
Star Dust Stickles around the frame
and the frosting I used Snow White Flower Soft.
I also scored the back and bottom frame.
Added Glitter Matt Stack paper
Buttons and Sentiment is from
Inspired by Stamping - A Lovely Birthday.
I loved looking at all the gorgeous images over at Dollar Graphics
and finally decided on a pre coloured digi (my favourite kind)
I used
Coloured Card Stock
Scrap piece of DP
Spellbinders Circles/Lacey Circles
Corner Punch
Sentiment is Heat Embossed and from
Inspired by Stamping - Chalkboard Stamp Set.
Since I only used one of the images for this challenge
I made another because I loved them so much.
That's it for me for now.
Don't forget to pop over to the rest of  the SAS4Kids Team
to see what they have created for our

For Mother's Day or a Special Lady - Challenge #24 at Crafting with Dragonflies

My card below is for a Special Lady - My Daughter.
I am SO EXCITED that in a few months I will get to
celebrate 2 very special occasions.
My granddaughter is getting married and my younger daughter
is flying over from Perth
(which is over the other side of Australia from where I live)
She is the baby one on my Baby Blog Hop post.
It just so happens we will be able to celebrate her birthday
while she is here so I am a pretty Happy Lady.
It will be a memorable get together as we are flying north
to Cairns for this Special Time.
On to our CHALLENGE. -
As the heading states it is a CARD
 for Mother's Day which is 11th May in Australia
or you may have a Special Lady like me
that you can make your card for.
We would like you to go ALL OUT
with this one and make it REALLY SPECIAL.
Our sponsors for this challenge are
 Heather Ellis with the Winners receiving 3 digi's from the website
and Meljens Designs who will be able to pick 4 digi's.
I chose the Daisy Pitcher digi from Meljens Designs
and used the following items -  
Cream and rose pink card stock
DP from my stash
Own ribbon at the top
Kazzaz Ivory Seam Binding inked with
 Iced Spruce Distress Ink to match the Pitcher
Coloured the Digi Image with Monte Marte Pencils
Dimensional Magic on Pitcher
Sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping - Fancy Sentiments
Gold Pearl Liquid Pearls
Antique Linen Distress Ink
Own Pearls
Kaisercraft Teal Pearls
Spellbinders Fancy Labels 2 for Sentiment

I am sure you will want to check out the other
Dragonfly Designers on the right hand side
to see what beautiful cards they have made for our
Mother's Day/Special Lady Challenge.
And on a sadder note
This is my last post for Crafting with Dragonflies.
For the present I need to cut back a little on my Crafting time.
I would like to say the biggest Thank You to Hilde
who had faith in my work and invited me
to be part of her Design Team when this blog started.
Some of the Challenges we shared over the last 10 months
 certainly took me out of my comfort zone
several times but loved the fact that I got to
try out new ideas.
Next I would like to say Thank You to my
Fellow Design Team Friends for all the
help and encouragement we shared.
It has been an amazing journey.
I am just cutting back on some commitments for now 
and will still be sharing my work when time permits.

So stay tuned

 Thank you so much for stopping by..
