Funky Fairy's Challenge No. 6 - Colour Theme Blue & Other Challenges

Morning blogland!

How are you keeping?

Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at Funyky Fairy's Challenge blog. The theme this week is

Colour Theme Blue

Here is my entry:


  • Love Train Download
  • DCWV vellum boy quote
  • Papermania large brads
  • Charm from ebay
  • Its a Boy ribbon from stash

This can be interpreted any way you want to and make anything at all, doesn't have to be a card! The only thing you have to do is to use at least 1 Funky Fairy's download. Now, if you are not used to Funky Fairy papers, which I have to say are fab and very high quality, why not pop on over to the Funky Fairy's Inspirational Blog to try out some FREE downloads - a good way to try before you buy!

This week, as well as winning some fantastic download, you will also win the most fantastic clock (see below) made by my very talented Funky Fairys Design Team mate, Emma. Pop on over to her blog if you want some inspriation, her stuff is amazing.

Would be great if you could come on over and join us.


Just noticed I can put this card in for the

A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge No. 41

as this week it is to show torn edges on your card - yay, I did!! There are torn edges on my vellum quote and on the backing paper of the quote.


I also want to enter this card into the

ABC Challenge

This week the challenge is D for Distressing - yay, my torn papers can go in the 'distressing' category!
