New challenge at that craft place AND the second part of the Rick St Dennis Progressive challenge

it's Sunday and there are two fab challenges starting today that I had to tell you about!

The first challenge I need to tell you about is the second half of this round of the progressive challenge at Rick St Dennis MFA Digital stamps hosted over on the Sparkle and Glitter (S&G) Blog!
the first half was anything goes, and if you played along with us for that you should have the image to play with this half- if not, never fear, you can get the image we are all using in etsy to play along, then as long as you join in for the anything goes part of the next month's progressive challenge, you will get the image free to play in the second part! easy peasy , hey?

So, we are using this fantastic image- String of hearts fairy which you can find on zibbet

to make this card i used copics-
E000,E00,E21,E11,E04, R20
R08, YR7,YR14

acrylic lace
pewter half pearls
tim holtz movers and shapers cupid and hearts dies
red cardstock
pink twine

The Second fabby challenge that is kicking off today is an 'anything goes' challenge over at that craft place challenge blog

for this challenge's inspiration I have altered a wooden box (previously housing fortnum and masons Elvas Plums)

To decorate this box I have used a black and white hearts digi paper from a pack our esteemed leader Lisa created...
parts of a self adhesive gem flourish, 
ruched white trim, 
green translucent ribbon,
silver beaded trim,
and digital scrabble tile sentiments all from that craft place
I also used a spellbinders floral oval die cut around the image which  I printed on the 300gsm super smooth colouring cardstock from that craft place
orange and moustache papers from an MME halloween paper pack
A moustache cut file made by my friend Jen Blausey 
(if you want to check out more of her designs and you have a brother scan n cut please come and visit us HERE:

Roses in different sizes from Samaflora
paired with fabric leaves,
with dots of glossy accents on

liquid pearls in petal pink
and sequins from the odds and ends collection at some odd girl

image 'Ellie Awesome Sauce'  from saturated canary, which is a digi based on Erin 'Sparkles' Fairclough's daughter
memento tuxedo black ink,
copics : E000,E00,E21,E11,E04,R20
R08,YR07, YR14
pewter half pearls
and orange cardstock

I do hope you will come and play along in these awesome challenges!!
