A Fun Fairy Friday Challenge with a Jr Guest :)

*Please scroll down for Pixie Dust Studio and
StampInsanity's Newest Challenges and Releases!
- Thank You :)

Good evening!
We're so happy to bring you this week's
Fun Fairy Friday Challenge!!!

For week 13, Roberta has challenged us to give our projects some...

Hmmm, that is a challenge for me, lol!
But it wasn't for Prairie Fairy's April Jr. Guest Designer...

You won't believe how very excited he was and still is
to be "projecting" for someone other than me :)
Thank You, Roberta!!!
... and he is sooo happy, that he had to make 2 cards for his first challenge!
I'm so proud of him!

But fist, I must keep you in suspense (upon request, lol!) and show you my card ;)
... and I'll be entering my card into the following challenges:
- Charisma Cardz Challenge #13 - Animal Magic
Spring Card with Fabric (Felt Flowers)

This is Prairie Fairy's "Summer Fun" Digital Image...
I distressed the bottom layer and swiss dotted the panels for texture -

Nicky pointed out to me, that the felt flowers are "feelies" too ;)
... and maybe the wood making up the clothespin...
- just be careful that you don't get a splinter ;)

Summer Fun Card Details:
BasicGrey DP; Papertrey Ink CS
Ink(s): Copic Markers
Accessories: misc. felt flowers; Recollections clothespin;
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder; Spellbinders Label Eight Nestabilitie

Now it's Nicky's turn ;)
... and please keep in mind,
Nicky created his cards and we pre-posted his portion last Tuesday afternoon...
and that he's 6 1/2 and I am going to type exactly what he tells me too,
hee hee... enjoy!

... and he's also agreed to enter both his cards to

"Hi everyone! I made 2 cards for today's Project Challenge for Miss Prairie Fairy :)"
Here's my first card using Fairy Princess' "Timmy Turtle":

"I used the project machine to make the roundness around the turtle
and extra bumpy stars on the star paper
and then I sand the bumpy stars with sand paper too...
You can make pretend that you can feel the turtle's hard shell too,
if you want too... "

"And I made another card, because it's Easter time :)"

"I colored only a little bit of the "BoBilly Bunny" and he's sitting on grass that I punched...
I used the project machine again to make leaves on the red paper and shapes...
and I made the bow all by myself using sticky glue dots.
You can feel the 2 papers bumps and the grass...
This is for my Mama, so I had to put a lot of colors on it
because she likes lots of bright colors..."

Nicky's Card Details:
Paper(s): Stampin' Up DP and CS
Studio G Easter Sentiment  
Ink(s): Crayola Crayon Markers
Accessories: Making Memories Buttons; Spellbinders Small Oval and Tag Nestabilities;
Cuttlebug Stars and Vines Embossing Folders; misc. ribbon; Petaloo Flower;
misc. paper ribbon scraps; misc. grass punch  

"I hope you like my cards! because I like them very much!
I colored inside the lines too!
They're cute! and more fun than Mommy's...
Thank You!!!"

Yes my dear friends,
he did say that his cards were cuter and more fun
than mine ;)

He's also hoping to get a lot more comments than me,
so if you have a sec,
skip me and leave him a lil comment, please :)
I would soooo appreciate it!
He's learning how to read, so I can't fib anymore, lol!
He will be reading and sounding out the words ;)
He's my big boy and like all Mommy's with lil boys -
we don't know how long this is going to last,
I fear the day when Mom is no longer the cool one
and he just wants to hang with Dad, Lil Bro and Friends...
sigh... not going to think about it ;)

Thanks so much!
We also look forward to seeing who will join in the challenges too!
Happy Friday! Hugs!!!

I just giggle when looking at the first card. It's so cute and the layout you came up with is so cool & awesome.
Love you share Nikky's card too, he is going to be a great cardmaker like his mom :o)

Hi Nick I just love your cards and the lovely colours, I like your mum's too.

Maria Matter said...

Oh Nicky, these are so wonderful!

Timmy Turtle is quite a handsome fellow! Your coloring is super and the stars are great! I like that you used the three different colored buttons! A very cool card!

Your BoBilly Bunny card is very special too! Just saying his name makes me giggle! You did a great job on your bow and adding the sparkly flower will surely make your Mom smile! I bet it was fun punching out the little grassy bits! It's a lovely card for your Mama!

Nicky you did a great job, I hope you will show us more of your artwork soon!

Take care!
blessings, Maria

Hi Margie & Nicky!

Margie, I don't think it's just mommies to little boys that fear that day when they are no longer 'cool'...right now, my little girl crafts with me sometimes, but at the grand old age of 5, she's already began ditching me for the rest of the world.

Nicky - I love your cards! Your extra bumpy stars are wonderful, and your bow is just awesome! Great colouring, too!

Have a great day, you two... I always look forward to your posts Margie, even if I don't say much!

Roberta Laliberte said...

Wow guys! Your cards are fabulous! Nicky you card is awesome! I am so lucky to have a talented guy like you for a designer!


Lori said...

Margie, your card is spot on, oh I love the colours. Isn't that image just the sweetest?
But Nicky - oh man, your cards totally rock!!!! I love the stars on the turtle card and your nice big orange nose for your bunny is soooo cute, great job!!!!

autumn0725 said...

Great job Nicky! I love how you used that project maker and that is a beautiful card you've made for your mommy! Way to go!

Erica said...

Nicky- You did such a good job describing your cards! Your coloring skills are wonderful and you stayed in the lines very well. The card you made for your mama is beautiful. I also like your bow. Keep up the good work!
