Double Header - CLF & ALBC

This doesn't happen often, when two DT cards collide on the same day, so rather than two separate posts and confusing everyone, you will find both my Crafty Little Fairies post and my A Little Bit Crafty post here in one go!

Crafty Little Fairies - In The Garden

This Thursday sees the first time that Crafty Little Fairies goes monthly - yes, you have a whole month to enter the challenge, and there are FIVE sponsor prizes up for grabs, one each for five lucky qualifying entrants.  Our seasonal theme is In The Garden, so with all those Spring flowers in bloom there should be lots to inspire you, including what the talented Fairies have created.  

Here is my DT card:
So for this one I have used:
Whimsy stamp - Strawberry Mouse
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Wild Rose Studio Birthday Circles sentiment
Raspberry Road papers Love Lies Here
Cheery Lynn flourish die
Woodware retro flowers punches
Nestabilities label dies
Card Candy to finish

A Little Bit Crafty - Flowers

And it is time for a new monthly challenge with A Little Bit Crafty, and this time it is Flowers - hmmmm, I can see some combining of challenges coming up here!

Love this stamp from Stampendous, which was a very thoughtful gift from a blogging friend
Stampendous Cling Vase Bouquet
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Matting layer is white card edged with Shaded Lilac Distress Pad
Sentiment is Hero Arts

Sweet and simple but I didn't want to take anything away from that beautiful image

Hope you have fun with both challenges!
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx
