It's A Magical Kind Of Day

A new challenge today at Dies R Us and though we are normally
an anything goes challenge, this time around we are collaborating with
Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge,
All the details can be found at the bottom of this post!
Our Theme however is 'MAGICAL'!

Dies R Us has lots and lots of 'magical' items in it's online store!

I die cut my 'magical fairy' three times,
once from a black metallic card stock for the base and adhered to a white Tutti Designs scalloped nesting circle, then
a pretty pink for the skirt and lastly from a gold metallic for the wings.
The latter two were paper pieced in.
 The underneath panel is a Scrapman Lace die, cut from a silver metallic.
I opted not to add a sentiment at this time!

Here are the links to the dies I have used:

Head on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog
to see all the fun creations from the Design Team
and join in with us for YOUR chance to win a DRU gift Certificate to the store!

For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below. 

Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts.  

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

How to play in our joint challenge:

Thing 1: Trouble Maker
says, "We are going to recognize 'Everything You Think is Wrong Day' on March 15th, a day when nothing goes right. Picture this: Your crafting project just went wrong! Have you ever had a day like that... a day when nothing was going right? Yeah, me too."

"Don't give up... because things that went wrong will
magically correct themselves at the stroke of midnight and we will be celebrating 'Everything You Do is Right Day' on March 16th! To get to this happy day, you had to get past yesterday."

"So let's include something
MAGICAL on your crafting project (i.e. gnome, fairy, magician, wand, rabbit in a hat, pixie dust, unicorn, mermaid, Disney, etc.)."

You can stop here
you can continue to Twisted Sister's optional twist below.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Trouble Maker, you were right! Everything went completely wrong yesterday but today is another day... it was magical and everything seems to be going right today. Whether or not you decide to play along with my twist we hope everything goes right for you."
"My optional twist is to use at least one die (a frame, an image, a sentiment, etc.) in your project and any brand is acceptable. If you have included a die(s) on your project you will receive another chance at the DTC random draw and you will have met Double Dare's requirement below."
Thing 2: Double Dare
says, "If you have created Thing 1's "magical" theme and have included at least one die (any brand is acceptable) on your project you are eligible to enter it at Dies R Us
If you have used a Dies R Us brand you will be eligible for entry into their quarterly 'Anything Goes' prize. Your die may already qualify... click
HERE for the list of acceptable DRU brands on the left-hand side bar. Don't keep us guessing... include the DRU brand of die used in your post."
