Serenissima/MMM Places challenge

A friend sent me a wonderful surprise package recently, when she knew I was feeling blue. As a thank you gift I have bought some lovely sugar sticks for coffee in our local coffee shop (white and brown) and decorated an empty chocolate box with images of Venice (Curious by design). As those sticks look a bit decadent in my mind, I thought they would go nicely with the opulence of Venice.

Fairy jam jar

Sasha's school has a fete, and they asked for donations of jam jars filled with sweets. So here is my fairy jar. A pity I couldn't fill it with pretty Jelly Beans, as we could only use wrapped sweets. I added a Candy Tuft fairy image.

Another philosophical piece from Antnhec. Most beautiful. Every word acquires new freshness and depth of meaning. You can always find poetry in your life.

You rock/Nature challenge

Arty Girlz are running another great challenge - Nature.
I made this Dino card earlier today as part of a Teen challenge, but thought it fits the Nature one as well, lol. Love these Dino stamps from BG. Letters are by Love Elsie.

A very pink card for Olive

My friend Jay's granddaughter Olive is turning one. What a girl!
Here is a card I made for her, hope she likes pink. The quote is from one of my most favourite poems by Milne.
When I was One I had just begun.
When I was Two I was nearly new.
When I was Three I was hardly me.
When I was Four I was not much more
When I was Five I was just alive
But now I am six I'm as clever as clever
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

Two sites are runnig pink challenges this week - Arty Girlz and Caardvarks, must be a popular colour, lol.

Memory of Venice/Dovecraft challenge

Dovecraft challenge was to use 3 Dovecraft products. I looked frantically in my stash, and managed to find 3 as required: paper, brads and a chipboard piece.
The stamped border and a feather and an image of Venice are from Curious by Design.
Harlequin is a face mould painted in acrylics.

One Day

This photo was taken last August in Italy. For this LO I used TT stamps and chipboard, painted with TH distress/crackle paint.
The message reads: "I know you love me - I see it in your eyes, the way you hug and kiss me. Your smile melts my heart. Words are a constant battle for you - they come and go, they don't want to obey... and the only word you repeat like a mantra is "mama". I hope - I pray - one day you will be able to say "Mama, I love you". And I love you more than anyone else in the whole wide world"

A birthday card for a forum friend.
BTW, this is a metal embellishment with a net on the ribbon, not a peel off. :)
