Stamp Fairy Friday! oh and lots more

Well this is my first StampFairy Friday 
I am super excited to be on the Stamp Fairy team and YAY I made a card... That is not for Christmas!
teehhehee!! like everyone in the crafting blogland Christmas is for a huge part of the year not just December and although I really love making Christmas cards
I really loved making a non Christmas one with this adorable image Kasi - Happy life!
I decided as soon as I saw it that I just had to give her some stripes
 I have coloured Kasi with Distress inks and used weathered wood, black soot and tattered rose.
I have used a black marker for her nose and added glossy accents,
The ball of wool is coloured with Sakura star dust pens.
I wanted to play a couple of challenges to so here they are:

Don't forget you still have time to enter our new challenge too!

OK so being Friday I am working today but I have been mega busy and managed to get a couple of other cards finished too!
I have for the first time ever stamped Henry straight onto my card! ekkk! that was a bit scary!
but I also wanted to try a adding distress inks with cut and dry to look like snow!
Almost like brayering but with out the brayer, distress inks to colour and then added some DC glue and glamour dust.
The Pink Elephant - Winter Wonderland yup I think this is ok too! lol
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas Inspired
Critter Sketch - No Pattern Paper - not one scrap!
Fussy and Fancy  - Show Us Some Snow - Oh I have that covered!! yay! 

For this card its so simple its a 30 minute card and you can make a few
I have cut about 6 cuttlebug snowflakes to make this card and then cut them down and layered them, added a robins nest gem sprayed them with spray adhesive and good old Glamour dust! as I did the same with the text after stamping it onto plain white card stock, see simple

and for my last card I have embossed all 4 sides about 5mm from the edge
the snowflake another cuttlebug one but just 1 layer this time a wee bit of ribbon through a lovely heart shaped button ( My lovely friend Kaz sent me, thanks hunny!) and again spray adhesive and glamour dust, text stamped one in black!
 On and by the way! its easy to stamp straight with a stamp positioner!
we sell them at Penrith crafts!

As this card above is so quick and easy I want to enter Fab 'n' Funky's
