A Sugar Rush and Happy Birthday

Gooooooood Moooooorning!  Well I'm probably still flat out, ha I wish!  Was my lad's 4th birthday yesterday and we gave him his birthday on Sunday so that we could spend the day with him but then monday being his proper birthday I did it all again so I'm shattered!  Still its always worth it to watch them squabble over the moon sand :)

Got 2 for you today!  First up is my DT Card for Bearly Mine Challenges who's theme is Birthdays!  There are 4 fabulous prizes on offer; 2 sets of digis by Bearly Mine, a selection of flowers and lace from Wild Orchid, 2 digi or 1 rubber stamp from tickled pink and 3 dies from go kreate!  You dont have to use bearly mine papers but Donna does provide some free ones too if you'd like to try them out.  For this Ive used an image by The Greetings Farm called Summer Fairy here
Papers are Bearly Mine and are from the Just Plaids and Simply dots sets here  I've distressed the edges of the lilac one with scissors.
Image is coloured with promarkers and I've added sparkles to the wings with sakura stardust.

Just a quick note - Bearly Mine have a sale on their newest spring papers for one week only.  They're so pretty, click the pic to go have a peek :)


Next up is PASSION FOR PROMARKERS and I'm the hostess this week.  Given the run of male cards lately my theme is 'Sugar Rush' so sweet, cute, girly, as far removed from male as you can manage :)

I've used Angel Kaylee by Some Odd Girl coloured with promarkers, the wings and belt are done with glamour dust.  Papers are papermania, flowers from both card are all Wild Orchid.  Little text stamp is stamping all day.  I've also added some tiny flutterbys from a martha punch.

Theres a prize from Letraset of one of the stamping kits up for grabs so come show us your girly girly, sugary sweet cards!
