Simply Sunday Challenge: Fantasy


Hey Diva's, Happy Sunday to you all! I hope your day has been Blessed thus Far, I know mine has!! Today is the start of a new Simply Sunday Challenge over @ Getting Cricky and I am totally Excited about it! Before I get into that let me just say that I am so very sorry that I totally forgot to announce the winner from last week's Blog Hop (You guys that have been following me for a long time know that I am Horrible @ that lol) but like usual Charge it to my head and not to my heart!! Now I usually let the Crew Members pick a number but because they are so busy with their lives right now (playing xbox, barbies, and reading the kindle is very important lol) plus I need to hurry and get this post up I just decided to use Random.org so the comment it picked was #13 Sugarlips Congratulations Girl! Contact me letilliaslaughter (at) yahoo (dot) (com)  with your snail mail so I can send you your Xyron!

Now on to this fun challenge, As stated before this Simply Sunday Challenge Theme is Fantasy. We were asked to interpret this however we wanted, my mind immediately went to Mermaids, Unicorns and Fairies (maybe because Crew Member 2 Loves all of the Above so that's all we hear about around here). I immediately wanted to use a stamp set of Kristal's that I hadn't gotten a chance to use yet and it fit in with the theme PERFECTLY!

I had seen a Youtube Video of a tent card awhile back by Splitcoaststampers that I wanted to try and I decided that this was a good time to give it a shot:
Recipe:
Tent Topper Card
CuttleBug Folder: Japanese Fish Scales
Markers: Bic
Bling: From My Stash
Ribbon: From My Stash
Paper: Recollections


 Stamp Sets Previews:

To Buy these sets and any other K Andrew Design Sets please go to her Store.

Now that you have seen my project go ahead eat you some sunday dinner and go to your craft room/space and let you Fantasy take flight! Have Fun Guys and I can't wait to see you over at Getting Cricky this Week for the Simply Sunday Challenge!! 


  Be Blessed and Always Remember,
