Charisma Cardz: Going Dotty #21 & NAME THAT FAIRY!

Hi again, boy oh boy 3 challenges in 3 days, what is up with me?! I'm soooo exicted about this card... I used a lot of my stash AND my cricut (he he he - seems I don't do that much these days, but it was fun!).

Well, I used another to-be-released image from The Character Cafe... I just can't enough of these little ones (a bit biased, but oh well). I even stayed up late last night drawing more! I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do :) This little one has a mouth... I seem to be adding them when it suits the character so we'll see. For the first little bit, I'm pondering the option of having both ways for sale so that you all can comment on which you prefer or let us know through purchases. Do you think that's cheesy? Let us know please!

I've been working with a few people who have been giving some honest feedback on our images and the likes/dislikes and so I'm thinking of re-vamping a few images changing little things like eyes, nose, mouth and such to see what your response is.... If you would like to see or not see something on one of our images, let us know and we'll play with it! We would honestly LOVE nothing more than your frank opinions (bet you don't hear that very often huh?!).

Anyway, on to the challenge (for some reason, I'm battling verbal diarrhea lately!)... This is for Charisma Cardz Challenge #21, Going Dotty

Okay, so I'm liking most of this card. When I was making it, I REALLY wanted to use my sewing machine (I've never done that before - *gasp* I know) for the paper and I sooooo wish I took the time to do it as I think it would be a totally different and wonderful effect (oh well, live and learn right?). I also used some pot pourri for the "flower" at the top of the card... I kept thinking about the things I would use on my little fairy sculpts and so why not? In keeping with that sculpting supplies theme, I used microbeads and chunky glitter for the wings (thought about breaking out the fantasy film, but we'll leave that for another card). I used a dahlia svg made by one of the members of my cricut groups (for the life of me, I can't remember who, but thank you!) and I made the word Believe with inkscape and cut them both with Sure Cuts Alot (gotta love that!). I then painted the text (cut from a granola bar box!) with my shimmery permenamel paints (again a fairy supply). I used some distress ink, acrylic rhinestones (as usual!LOL), sakura glitter pen, Basic Grey brad, and paper from my stash.
Last, but not least, I used this little Fairy whom I had named "Alyssa" after my sister, but I drew one last night that is oh so much more suited to the name.

So, I would like to ask you all to "Name That Fairy"... sounds like fun right?!

Leave me a post with a name suggestion and on Sunday (June 7th) we will put all the names in a hat and draw... the winner will receive this fairy named after their suggestion FREE!

Yay... I'm super excited :)
Well, I'm off to play "spa" with my kids
Until next time, Happy Crafting
