Pink Pearl and Pretty Favourite Animal

Good morning. I'm so glad it's now Thursday because that means that Jack finishes school today for the summer holidays, John will be home tomorrow and of course it also means we have new challenges for you over at


Now I don't usually combine my DT posts but I am today as I have made two individual projects for each challenge but they are a matching set :o)
Our lovely Mau picked the theme over at MAWTT this fortnight and would like to see your projects that are


Here's what I made:

And over at Charisma this time our lovely Allison would like to see your projects with


Anyone who knows me knows I love flutterbys :o)

So here's the matching wall hanging I have made for the Charisma challenge:

The small flutterbys are a Martha Stewart punch - the spotty design paper is pinker (is that a real word???) IRL

The gorgeous large flutterby is one of my new purchases from the new local craft shop I found recently and is a Marianne Createable die that I inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and then blinged it up with Stamp n Bond and then lashings of  Glamour Dust.

I inked the frames (they were originally white) with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and then overstamped my favourite swirl stamp (from Creative Expressions) with the same ink.

Here's a couple of close ups of the scrummy flutterby.

I hope you don't mind me combining my DT post :o)
