Word Play Saturday - May Challenge

Hey everyone! It's already time for a new word here at Word Play Saturday!
Thanks to all of you that played along in my April Word Play Challenge! So happy to have you all join me!

It's time to announce the April winner. Random.org chose the lucky number 6, that is

Kren from a fourth life

Congratulations! Please email me at ellibelle_blog at yahoo dot com with your mailing address so I can get your prize mailed to you. 


*****

For this month the challenge word I chose is

Magical


Simply create something with the word "magical"in mind. I can't wait to see what you all come up with. This can include fairies, gnomes, elves, and anything or everything else that lives in fairy tale land.


Here is my creation, on time and ready to go this month.



I used the super adorable stamp set "Little Fairies" from whimsy's Wee Stamps collection.



Products used:
Stamps: Flower Fairies set (Whimsy Stamps)
Papers: My Minds Eye, Neenah, Stampin Up
Tools: Butterfly punch (MS) lace border punch (MS), circle nestabilities,
Embellishments: ribbon, stickles glitter, sticky pearls
Coloring Medium: Faber Castell Polychromos pencils


I would also love to enter my card to a few other challenges. At As You Like it Challenge-  the challenge theme is favorite die cuts or punches (I love the lace border punch that I used), at Paper Crafting Journey anything goes, something old and something new at Crafty Creations (I used an old paper pad and punches, and new stamp set), anything goes at Divas by Design, also anything goes at Flutterby Wednesdays, things with wings at Simon Says Stamp 


The prize for this month is a cute rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps Kenny K collection from my own personal collection.  


 To play along in this month's challenge simply link your blog post using Mr. Linky below. 

A few things to remember:
 It must be a new creation
You may combine this with other challenges
You must mention and link this blog when entering the challenge
You may enter up to 4 times
Would love to have you as a follower if you like my creations, but it is not a requirement
 


Edited 6/7 - I apologize but it looks like mr. linky has closed this collection and so the May challenge is now closed. I still see everyone's entries on the mr. linky site but it won't let me add it here again. I will still be able to choose a winner from all of the entries. So sorry everyone, will be using inlinkz from now on. 

I was able to copy and paste this.
