FAIRY BIRTHDAY .... 

+ Winners 500 Follower Give-Away

{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #59}

[Warning: this is a lengthy post so get that cup of coffee/tea, sit down, breath out and enjoy ...]

This week our theme for Challenge #59 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is BLING IT UP I used the adorable Molly Fairy from StampFairy and you can purchase her here.  The sentiment is from SK Digis .  


Another centre stepper. The check green design paper is from BasicGrey and the other green design paper is from BoBunny.  I have coloured Molly Fiary mainly with H2O water colour pencils and the skin tone and stipple effect around the image were done with Copics.  I have also used my Chiswick distresser tool to distress the edges around some of the green cardstock.

I have done a little tutorial for the folded flowers and corners I have used on this card and you can find it just a bit lower down in this post.

Hope you will play along this week - so come on link your Bling it Up creations to Tammy's Scrapin Corner's Challenge No.59. Can't wait to see what you create.





... and here is the tutorial for the folded flower and corners I have used on this card:






Off to link this creation to the following challenges:

Okay so onto some exciting news for all those who took part in my 500 Follower Give Away.  First of all I would like to thank everyone who took the time to link up to my Give-Away and to be so kind as to leave a comment on one of my posts.  Don't be mistaken, I have checked whether the three winners have done this lol.  So with no further ado - here are the three winners as determined by RandomOrg:


That is:

No. 95 =  Addii 

No. 66 = Teresa Arsenault {Tickell Expressions}

No. 145 = Denise vR {Dixie Creations}

Congratulations, you each win a $15 Gift Certificate from DigiStamps4Joy.  

Please leave me a comment on this post with your email address, so that I can get your gift certificates to you.





So there are some more good news, I have only 13 New Followers to go towards my 600 Follower Give-Away.  Thank you so much for stopping by my little space in blog land.  Should you use my little folded flower tutorial, I would love to hear from you.
