OUR FINAL CHALLENGE

Morning girls well its been really hot,here this week,and set to get up to the 90's at the weekend,so I have been,sweating like crazy trying to get all my cards finished.
Anyway enough of me,CREATALICIOUS is closing down,and today will be our final challenge,Cheryl,has been running this now,for just over 3 years,and does not get much time to spend with her family,and do what she loves craft,so we would like to thank everyone over the years who have supported us,and entered into our challenge.
I would also like to thank Cheryl ,and the DT for being the most amazing bunch of,girls to work with and will miss,them all,so today's final challenge is,
Fantasy,or baby theme your choice,I of course went with fantasy he he,I did a digital collage and a card,so here they are,

The,fairy was a freebie on the internet,I then took her into,cut out studio,and removed the background which took forever as it was the same colour,then I blended her into the background paper which I created using,the colours in the previous background. Then I added some cloud's flowers,bird,and made a star shape at the back.

This card is using one of the images,from the do crafts, CD cant, remember what it is called but know it was a 4 day deal,and they sold out of this one before it went to air. I was lucky enough to buy if off someone,this is for a customer's little girl who loves,fairy's

So if you would like to join us on our final challenge,the link to our blog is HERE

Just before I go I wanted,to say a massive thank you to my new followers,gosh cant, believe I am still getting new people every day to follow me,means so much so bless you girls so much,
It was Lisa's birthday yesterday,and I made her this card again using,craft artist,to do this,
 The other girl in the,photo is Lisa's best friend,and I took a photo of them and made an intelligent frame,then added the photo of them both to it,the picture of Lisa I blended into some background paper,then added some more on the top and blended that too. Then just added a tiny tatty teddy to the card,which I decoupaged,as she loves tatty teddy.
This is a sneak preview of something I have been working on using,Jude's,wooden embellishments over at crafty emblies,this has been embossed,and then added some,viva gloss to the fingers,to look like nail varnish will post the whole creation later this week,You can buy these amazing embellishments,HERE
Sorry this is a long post now off too see what you guys have been up too take care everyone,and bless you all for staying with me,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxxx
