Windmill for StampFairy



I love making cards but I also like making other things (in fact I love making lots of different things, unfortunately there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all I would like lol) so with this week's StampFairy Friday release I thought I would make a windmill for the garden.  I found a template on Google, used digi papers (which I printed on both sides).  This cute Snail  is from StampFairy's Critters range & I coloured his face with ProMarkers & paper pieced his shell.  The little images on the stick are this week's freebie & I finished off with some gems.  All the images at the moment are half price but I'm not sure how long for so you need to get in quick.


The challenges:
Digi Doodle - Stripes
Simon Says - For a Child
Papertake - Truly Dimensional
Crafty Creations - Paper Piecing
Allsorts - Anything But Square
A Spoon Full of Sugar - All Creatures Great & Small
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes 
Woodware USA - Anything Goes
AI Factory - Party Animal


You can see from the photos that the sun has disappeared, in fact it's been soo cold this week that the heating has gone back on.  I hope it warms up for the weekend & you all have a good one :)
