ONCE UPON A TIME !

Sir Stampalot - http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.com/  has a challenge this month entitled Magical Worlds.               

So I would like to tell you a little story........

'Once upon a time there was a little girl called Molly who loved to go exploring, well one day when she was supposed to be doing the washing up for her Mother she sneaked out the back gate and went into the Woods.  Molly had never been into the Woods on her own before, she always went with her big brother Billy, who was a bit of a pain as all he wanted to do was whack dead leaves with a stick.......... Molly walked deeper into the woods and found a tree with a door........oooh this is so exciting she cried, I wonder what I will find..........but just as she was about to go through the door she heard a tiny little voice, Molly looked up and there was a Fairy........If you go through that door Molly you may never come out again...... '
So what do you think Molly did ?  ...........................................................................

Products used:  Manila tag, Archival Ink, Clear Embossing, White Gel Pen, 3d Foam and Whisper Pens. 
Stamps by: Lavinia Stamps and Technique Tuesday
There are some wonderful entries for this challenge, plus a fabulous prize, well worth looking at.  I have to say have only seen cards so not sure if they will accept a tag, hope they do.

Am off to lunch today with my Art Class to celebrate our 1st year.  Hayfever has gone for the moment, brilliant, and thank you for all your good wishes.  Have a happy day whatever you are doing and if you see a door in a tree you had better think twice before you enter................Take care, hugs Annette x

Pops x said...

Gorgeous and awesome work I love visting your blog your work is always amazing, hugs pops x

Faye said...

Wonderful tag, Netty, and story as well. If Molly were super cautious as I am, she'd run straight back to the house and send Billy to investigate the door!

My strawberry jam is not cooked. I followed the recipe on the Sure-Jell package. You mix the Sure-Jell (pectin mix) with sugar and boil for a minute. Then you dump in mashed up strawberries and mix well. Put into jars and let set up for 24 hours. Then freeze for up to a year. We just today finished off last year's jam. Now we have another whole year's worth in the freezer. I will add this to my blog since others may be wondering too.

joanna said...

Ok Annette it's real hard to keep up with you! lol you are one busy lady! love this tag!

Shelly Hickox said...

Well, I know what I would do! Go in that door!!

I love, love, love this tag. The kraft background is the perfect base for all of your wonderful stamping.

Beverly Gotthardt said...

Love your scene tag, perfect subtle colors.

Delphine said...

Your tag is gorgeous, Netty, and I love your story:-)! Wonderful choice of colours too! And thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog:-)! Hugs Delphine xx

PetraB said...

No doubt, Molly went through the door ... and behind the door she found
a) lots of dirty dishes to be washed up and even more muddy boots and clothes to be cleaned keeping her busy for the next ten years - and she wished she would have never gone through the door
b) a wonderful castle with huge gardens, a glittery horse carriage and, of course, her darling prince - and they lived happily ever after
c) a huge room filled with all crafty goodness you can imagine - what else could she want?

Your choice (lol) ... and a wonderful magical tag!

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Wow, that's relly lovely.

Yvonne said...

Love your tag, Annette! Wonderful story too :)

Meggymay said...

Fabulous tag, loved the fairy storey. Yvonne x

Dolly Daydreams said...

It seems as if everyone wants her to go through the door but her awful brother with the big stick wouldn't let her as he is a coward and didn't know what her would tell their parents if she disappeared Beautiful piece and can;t wait to hear what happens next.

Christine said...

Annette, how could you leave me hanging like that? lol, great story and tag to go with it.

Sharon said...

Oh Netty I loved that little story and your tag is fantastic!!! Love the colours and everything and she's a "female" of course she went through the door (life is too short not to take a chance)!
