Quixotic Paperie DT- Celebrate

How is your week going? Have the fresher (or warmer in the case of Australia) weather gotten you in the mood of playing more? Mine sure did.. it's cooler now, and you just have fun organising and colouring these babes. The stamp designers keep spoiling us more for choice, so even if you play the whole day.. it wouldn't be enough.

Click on the pictures for a better view.

Look at these Paper Make up stamps for instance.. they are so gorgeous.. and I can imagine this wonderful, joyful fairy celebrating life and the wonderful nature that surrounds us all the time! :) Especially during the Fall and Spring Season. And then.. those who are lucky enough to live near mountains.. they are a blessing when covered in snow. These are things that I don't get to see here, so I can only imagine them from here :)

As I had told you some time ago, this month I'm Guest Designing for Quixotic Paperie. Those of you who have never visited Elaine's online Store, and her own creations; girl you are losing something! She has also a very talented DT, and it's my pleasure to be able to join them.. altough four weeks are just a few!! :(

I based this creation on Sketch Saturday's sketch, and as you noticed I'm still in the Orange, Green and Brown mood. If you remember I used these for the ROP challenge this week, and I thought that with the lovely MME papers Bloom and Grow.. they would be the perfect touch.Cute Card Thursday want to see charms.. and I have it here as well :) This Fairy's name is Melissa, and as I told you she's happy and dancing. Look at the lovely movement that is captured in this stamp: her skirt, her feet and arms.. lovely indeed! And did you see how she has got her hair also in green to go with her lovely colours? Elaine has these gorgeous stamps here, with all the other Beautiful Day Fairies in this range. You can also keep checking here for some more creations with them.

I coloured Melissa in Copics, and then I gave her polka dots with the white highlighter. I also used Eucalyptus and stardust stickles to give her some shine. Added some also to the side of her face, and her ballerina shoes.

I added some ribbon and lace underneath, and tied a mushroom charm, which you can find with lots of lovely other charms at Quixotic. I popped some green half pearls (found here) and some dewdrops (chocolate coloured) from my stash. The "joy" word is a rub-on I added, and the "Celebrate the Everyday" was computer generated. I thought it really fited this fairy cute image! :) She makes me smile everytime I look at her! :)

For the inside I used another piece of the lovely MMe paper, and for the bottom part, a piece of DCWV mat stack I have. I used some lace and dewdrops again, and added some Country Elegance flowers for a final touch. The flower centre is a gorgeous Basic Grey brad. I added a jotting piece, where I doodled some faux stitches, added some gems and voila! My creation is finished.

I hope you like it, and that you go and check Elaine's lovely store for these beauties. You won't be disappointed.. I warn you..your wallet will though! :)
Have a lovely week, and thank you for the lovely messages you leave me. I just smile for hours after I check my mail :) God bless!

Thanks for looking
