Share your creativity over at Make It Monday!

Boo, it's Monday so back to work - but yay, it's Monday which means another week to share your creativity with the crafting community!  I love seeing the different projects all week - it's so inspiring to see different techniques and styles!  For this week, I made this card...

 
 


I was inspired by my lovely and kind friend, Sally of Scallywags fame, after seeing her makes using Fizzy Moon the bear.  You can see her lovely creations with him (her?!!) here - uber sweet, I'm sure you'll agree!

This week we are being sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store and you can buy this sweetie clear stamp called Wish Upon a Star here for just £3.99 - I think that's exceptional good value considering you get matching sentiments and accessories!  Crafty Emma's prize to one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend in store (p&p not included) - so you could get yourself two sets of Fizzy Moons - shame I can't win it!!

Don't forget to see the other DT inspiration here - they are so lovely, I am sure you'll be inspired to join our party!


I used the sketch over at Moving Along With The Times and I'm also entering it into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy True Blue paper pad (you can get from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Fizzy Moon Wish Upon a Star, sentiments from
Ladybug Crafts Ink Baby Baby set
Mediums: Copics, Stickles glue in star dust
Accents: 4mm flat backed pearls,
Stampin Up seam binding ribbon in Baja Breeze
Tools: Nestabilities dies, 1" Woodware star lunch, Martha Stewart border punch inside card
