Fab 'n' Funky ~ Ribbon or Lace

Hey there crafty pals, how's your week going? We've just finished Spring Break, so the kiddos have headed back to school and I've got some crafty me time again, woohoo! It's time for a new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky and we have such a sweet one for you today. We would love to see your crafty creations using 'Ribbon or Lace'. We are being sponsored this week by the lovely folks at 'Crafty Ribbons'.

I made this card for one of my sweet nieces. I just love this darling fairy. She was such fun to colour up. Yes, she does look like the Whimsy Stamps fairies you might be seeing about at the moment. She was one of my earliest stamp purchases back when Marina Fedotova designed for Pergamano. They were enchanting then and are still enchanting today! 

I love 'timeless' stamps and this one has sure stood the test of time. It's well over 10 years ago that I purchased her. I'm feeling more than a little spoilt to be able to play with more of Marina's gorgeous fairies and images since Whimsy Stamps brought out their lovely Marina Fedotova range. I coloured her a while back and then 'stashed' her for the 'right' creation, so she was coloured with my Promarkers.

If you take a closer peek you can see I've added some little pearl trails under the pink butterflies on the patterned paper, I love that look. I added a small tag and you might be able to spot the pink lace I've used behind the tag and flowers. I notched the edges of the paper just for fun using a circle punch. I love the way this looks. I really should do it more!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today and if you're doing some lace or ribbon crafting, come and play along with us at Fab 'n' Funky. We'd love to see what you're inspired to do. I'll be back in a short while, as I have a Whimsy Wednesday post to share. Ooh I can't wait, I'm rather excited about this one! But until then, be sure to stop in to the blog and see what my talented teamies got up to, you're sure to leave inspired! Hugs and happy crafting, Wends xoxo

Hi Wends - I also thought it was time to catch up again..!! And I just love your gorgeous card and that adorable fairy - I'd get some of the MF stamps from Whimsy if (like you) it weren't for the postage. I even took my UK Christmas cards when we went to see our newest grandson. It was a long trip from France to Scotland - but great to see everyone again.
I love your Halloween card too - such a great image and a fab background.
