I'm on a roll today!

I've been crafting all day and have got all my design team stuff done for all week and even a few cards for the week after and have even made 2 cards for challenges! Thought I would get them all done before Mojo disappears again.
So I have 2 cards to show just now. My first one i s for Just Magnolia. I just had to find time to do this one because it is a sketch by Bev and you know how I love sketches and because it's one from Bev, it had to be fab right? So this is what I came up with.

I do kinda like how this one turned out but it was very nearly a bin job. I had all my papers on and my image on, just had to do the flowers and I noticed there was a tiny bit of blue pen on the top of my image, so I tried wiping it off thinking it was maybe just something that would wipe off but my nail got caught in one of the scallops and ripped it! So I inked all round the image while it was still stuck to the card because I couldn't get it off without ripping it, which did cover the pen but made the tear stand out even more lol so I just stuck a flourish thing on top and hoped for the best! Didn't make a very good job with the brown ink but it was really difficult to apply when it was stuck to the card and I couldn't find my sponge dauber thingie. Anyway it's done and it can just stay like that lol.
All the papers I used are from DCWV Garden Party stack and the flowers are Primas from....yes you guessed it Aries Crafts. Love that place lol. I got the flourish and branch/leaves from Heather and spacers from my stash.

And the second card I made is fro Friday Sketchers. Another fab sketch this week that I just had to try.

I am really annoyed with this photo. No matter how many times I tried, it still came out blurry and her dress looks a totally different colour than IRL. But I gave up trying so just pretend it's a great picture and her dress looks the sam ecolour as the papers lol.
I have used more papers from my DCWV garden Party stack. Did you notice I like this pad lol. It has loads in it though and lot sare glittered so whats not to like? Barry thinks I am mad for paying £15 for it but it has 48 8x8 sheets (2 each of 24 different patterns) and the paper is good quality. That's my excuse to him anyway, really I just liked it and didn't even know how many sheets or the price before I bought it lol.
I have used a Magnolia image that Lorraine sent me. I know this one is normally used for Christmas but who says she can't be used all year round?
After I finished the card I thought somethinf was missing so I added some ribbon down the sides. The flowers are all punched from various punches and beadcaps from my stash.

Well think this is my last post tonight because I'm of bloghopping before it's time for bed. It's only 9.30 and I can't stop yawning!

Oh nearly forgot, Squigglefly is having a bloghop next week. It will be a 2 day hop on Wednesday the 1st and Thursday 2nd July. Squigglefly will be giving away 3 images and some of the girls on the team might also have a little bit of candy on their own blogs too.
I don't know yet if I will have anything to give away as I haven't been able to go shopping this week for anything (spent to much last week lol), but you never know ;) check back on Wednesday to see.

Please do leave me a comment to let me know you have stopped by. I love to read them and the I can come visit you too :)

hugs Lora x

Hope you little man is doing well again. I love the Magnolia stamps, and I think you were right the ribbon is a great idea. How many cards did you say you did? I would be lucky if I did one a night! Phew!

Wow I love your cards. The one you said you got ink on I couldn't see any ink. I love the way you rubbed ink around the image and embossed the edges. That looks so good.
