A bit of this and a bit of that

I was going to start off with a comment about how cold it's been over the last few days, but I have just read a message from one of my Teddy Bo team-mates who lives in Norway and the temperature there is -31 degrees, it's practically tropical here compared to that LOL!

I have a few Clipart Fairy cards to show you today. It was originally going to be three, but then somebody asked me for a quick thank you card so I've ended up with four.
I must apologise for the terrible pics, but the weather has been so dark and dismal here that I had to use my daylight bulb and the photos aren't very good.

Card 1
 I put this card together from various parts of the Creative Easel Top Tick Tock 3 interactive kit.
In my graphics program I layered the stopper section onto the easel front (I wanted an A5 size card) and added the wording, I printed it out, along with two of the stopper sections. I added a tab at one side of each stopper section and folded them in half to make my doors.

I printed papers from the kit, onto card for my butterfly and pearl paper for my roses.

Roses  and foliage dies - Marianne Creatables
Pearls and Brad - MeiFlower

Card 2
 For this card I used the shape of the previous card as a template, and also used the clock numbers and fingers, which come separately with the above kit. The papers are from the Nature Boy papers, and the bunting comes from the Crazy birthday square frame kit. I bought the image from Sassy Cheryl's Illustrations,  Wendy uses a lot of her illustrations but they are incorporated into the kit designs and don't come as a separate image, but the papers match the illustrations perfectly so it is worth investing in them, to make your kits go further.
Image - Crazy Father - Sassy Cheryl
Grosgrain ribbon - MeiFlower

 Card 3

Oval die - Marianne Craftables
Plain circle Die - spellbinders
Fancy circle die -  Nellie Snellen Multi Frame
Charms, gems and metallic cord - MeiFlower

Card 4
My final card uses papers and flowers from the Big Blooms button it kit. The scalloped design I made myself.
Martha Stewart border punch - Half daisy
Template for making gem swirl - Bazzill Jewel templates
Ribbon, gems and pearl ribbon slider - MeiFlower

Well that's if for today folks. See you Tuesday with Teddy Bo.
