Just Magnolia and Sketch Saturday

Good morning ladies (and men if any are reading this), hope you are all having a fab weekend.
I have been so busy cardmaking since my 2 babies have been away for the weekend and I am lovin it, but I do miss my girls so much, it's way too quite without their fighting and screaming at each other lol.
I missed last weeks Just Magnolia with everything that was happening so I wanted to join in this week. This is one of my favourite challenges as is Sketch Saturday (who doesn't love a good sketch?) so I decided to combine the two.
I have turned the sketch on it's side to fit my little Tilda better. Ok I admit it, I turned the sketch because I stuck my image on the wrong way lol. I think she fits better this way though :)
The theme this week for Just Magnolia is animals and insects so I used this sweet Tilda and also a Magnolia butterfly from the Spring set that the lovely Bev stamped for me (thanks hun your the best x).
I reached for my Bo Bunny papers again but these are ones I haven't used before although some of them do look very similar. I'm not sure about the green paper but I bought it because for 1 it co-ordinates with the others I have and 2 it has a lovely pattern in the bottom corner which I didn't use lol.
The green spotty flower is a Prima and the pink fabric flower is one I got from Donna (Donna's Doodles) when I won her blog candy. Well I didn't win her candy, someone else did but she also picked 2 or 3 others to receive some images and a few other bits and I was one of them :)
I found the sweet label thingie in my stash and thought it would go well with the sketch. I wish I could remember where I got it because I would like some more.
Everything else is from my stash.

I think I might go see what other challenges I can join in with before the girls get home.
Remeber if you haven't joined in with the Digital Tuesday Challenge this week, you still have time, it's a wedding theme this week and you can use any digi image you like . Also if you want to join in with this weeks Squigglefly challenge, you better get your skates on because the new challenge is tomorrow. This week is a colour challenge of Bordering Blue, Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip or if you are like me and don't have Stampin Up stuff, you can use colours that are close to those, like I did :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for stopping by today.

Hugs Lora xx
