Stitch in time/Caardvarks Lace challenge

This is a birthday card for a lovely forum friend, who is talented in anything she puts her mind to: papercrafts, knitting, sewing.
Stamps: Sugar Nellie (main image) and Tim Holtz (background stamp). I stitched the thread on the stamped image plus lace, and attached all the tiny buttons.

Thumbelina/Spring Has Sprung at Stampotique

Too dark today to take a better picture, perhaps tomorrow will be brighter and sunnier. Here's my lil Thumbelina sleeping in her cradle among tulips.
The tulips as well as all the papers, flowers and ribbons are from Papermania range.
(I don't have any Stampotique stamps) The little snuggly girl is my own drawing.

Plant Kindness/Simon Says Girlie Challenge

I wanted to thank a friend for a fab gift I got in the mail last week, which left me all warm and fuzzy and emotional.
For the flower girl I used the free stamp that came with the previous issue of Craft Stamper, imo the most beautiful stamp they produced (unlike the little horror that comes with the current issue, tut tut, it's so poorly drawn, even my 8-year-old niece can do much better) as well as one of Prima flowers. Petals are TT stamps.

La cage aux folles/Caardvarks Photo Inspiration challenge

Caardvarks is running another Photo inspiration challenge, with cages and birds.
So here is my birdie in a golden cage. The main stamped image is by Kodomo.
The big button on the side is a fab bargain from the charity shop, I found these three huge buttons for 25p altogether, and they are perfect for stamping or altering.
