You've got the Cutest...

little baby EVERYTHING!
Welcome to the 13th Pixie Cottage Challenge
We're almost like a smorgasbord...
our challenges now come with CHOICES!
This week you have the option of using our sketch below,
embossing (wet or dry)
OR going gung-ho and doing BOTH!
I wet embossed the Crawling Cassie stamp by Lisa.
..applying strokes of the broad end of the VersaMarker
over her pink panties, and pouring on the Ultra Thick
Embossing Enamel by Suze Weinberg, and melting it with a heat gun.
For her big bow I used the petite end of the VersaMarker, sprinkled the dots with
black Stampin' Emboss Powder from Stampin' Up followed by heat gun zapping.

For a chance to win enter your NEW creation at The Pixie Cottage
(remember to link back on your blog!)
Here's the sketch...

I love seeing ALL of the cards that my fellow Pixies create,

they are super fabulous every week!

I, however, see the world in 12"x 12"!

So, more often than not, I will be showing you

ways to incorporate the plethora of Pixie Cottage Stamps

in scrapbook layouts or 3 dimensional gift items.

The following is my take on this week's sketch

showcasing the Crawling Cassie stamp

and Addie~ the very sweet baby

that keeps me company in the Artish studio

M-W-F 'til summer vacation starts.

Once again I made use of multiple items

from the Paper Studio ala Hobby Lobby...

the flowers come in a box set, as well as all of the beautiful brads.

I incorporated the gargantuan flower on her headband by strategically cutting the photo

as the first in the semi circle, embellishing the center with a brad.

Addie's parents are the Pastors of our perfect is this ribbon!?

I ran the sheer polka dotted ribbon through the loop of the cross ribbon

to give the baby image a 'floor' to crawl on!

I used Copic markers to color...had to get the perfect shade of BINKY :)

I can't wait to see your CREATIONS!

*note--Pixie Cottage Challenges will now be WEEKLY!!!!*

Our Easter weekend did not go exactly as planned.

Sienna, my oldest daughter (by a minute) was admitted to the hospital with extreme allergy related asthma issues. The outpouring of prayers from my Pixie Cottage family was truly a blessing! We had prayers being said around the world! I can't begin to tell you how much that means. MERCI!!!!

They were answered!!! She was able to come home late afternoon on Easter
which then allowed for a much happier day!
