Trick or Treat?

Isn't this image a little beauty? This is one of the new stamps at the Pixie Cottage store and it's called Pumpkin Fairy Hannah. She's one of those images that was crying out for a little glitter. Okay, let's face it, at the moment most images make me want to use glitter, but the sparkles from the wand just had to be glitzed up. Today is not a card. In fact the Pixie challenge includes a sketch and/or anything but a card as the themes. I didn't quite manage to get the full sketch, but the not a card option is covered because this is a chocolate bar wrapper. Now what a nice way that is to treat the kiddies at Halloween.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Stamp Something - Fairy tale somethings (all good fairy tales have a fairy)

Secret Crafter - What are little girls made of? (Chocolate of course!!)

Lili of the Valley - Four Seasons - (oops! did they forget Autumn?)

Creative Card Crew - Sparkle and Shine

The Prairie Fairy - Inspiration photo from which I used the colours.

One Stitch At A Time - pack a punch

Items used:
Pumpkin Fairy Hannah image
DCWV The Linen Closet 8x8 papers
Prima Flowers Innosence Honeysuckle
Hobbycraft leaf punch
Coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks
White ribbon

I hope you'll all stop by the challenge and take a look at what my talented teamies have created this week. We'd love to see you joining in too.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx

Hi Sharon,

What a gorgous creation. This challenge thing that I am knee deep in is addicting! I covet all the digi's and rubber stamped images that I see! Maybe I will stumble onto a 12 step Crafters I am loving this image...It will go on my wish list for sure!

Hugs, Marjo
