OMG! Happy Happy Me

Good Morning Bloggers

I have some news that made me jump up & down, well OK it was jumping up & down in my head
I applied for a DT position & I didn't think I would get chosen in a million years ............
...................... but I did!!!

Chrishanthi draws some amazing & beautiful images and I am lucky enough to work with these now :)

Our challenges are always 
and will have an optional twist each time, you can find out all the details and my fellow DT makes here

So here is my make, well actually I loved the image I used so much I made to projects. 

The first one
This beautiful girl is called
 I coloured her with Pro Markers and used chalks to distress the edges of the heart die cut and the underneath layer of the butterfly, the top layer I coloured with my markers again. The papers were from my stash and the ribbon was actually wrapped around a pack of card blacks I recently brought. The tiny butterflies are from an XCut Palm Punch & are coloured with Pro Markers again, the pearls are from my stash

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

Onto my second make again using 'Thinking'
After doing a light and dreamy card I made a more funky one and gave her red hair :)
Again coloured with Pro Markers and the background papers from my stash, I do know the butterfly paper is a Magnolia one. The sentiment I stamped using a fab alphabet set I brought for £1 from Hobbycraft and I used the same tiny punched butterflies but this time coloured them a dark purple. I made the flower myself by inking some plain white tissue paper with memento ink pads, tore the paper into circle-ish shapes of various sizes, added a thin layer of pva glue & when it was nearly dry I scrunched the circles up, layered them & added a brad to the centre. I then shaped it into the flower shape I wanted, added more pva and heated it till it was dry and slightly stiff, finishing with the odd dot of Stickles

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

I hope you are all going to join in our very first challenge & I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations
There is also a fab Face Book page for PPINKYDOLLS here where you can show off your makes

Happy Crafting
