Digital Tuesday DT card

This week over at Digital Tuesday it's Sandy's turn to host the challenge and she chose "Cute People" as the theme. Well that was an easy one for me because my favourite images are cutie ones. Would of been much easier if my mojo decided to come back and play but unfortunately it is on holiday.......again!
Our sponsor this week is My Grafico and they gave the design team a set from Dilek Digital Studio 
called "Dilek Sweety Girl" to play with, which you can find here in My Grafico's store.
The prize is 1 set from My Grafico (winner choice from all their Digital Stamp sets) and 30% off an order.

So here's what I did.

There are 3 cute little girls in the set but I chose to use this one because she reminds me of my two little girls lol. The sentiment is a freebie from My Grafico.
I coloured her with Promarkers, the papers are Papermania and the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The panel she is stuck on is a Sizzix die cut which I cut from mount board. It cuts in two parts, the rectangle and the scallops around it, so I covered the rectangle with paper just so it wasn't so plain.
It looks flat here but in real life, the panel sticks out because it is cut from mount board instead of just card.
I got a huge lot of mount board from a woman who's husband makes picture frames and always has bits left over but I had no idea what to do with it because I have a Cuttlebug and the dies for it don't cut through the mountboard, but I teach a craft class at the kids school (for adults) and my Daughter's teacher let me borrow her Sizzix die cutting machine to use for the class and the original thick dies cut it easily, so now I have loads of mountboard shapes :)
Now I will have to think of ways to use them all lol.

I have been busy these last few days with DT cards and the school fair is on the 19th June so I have been busy making things for that as well. I have kind of ran out of ideas for things to make at my craft club to sell at the fair, so if anyone has any ideas what we could make, please let me know!
We have very limited supplies so can't make anything that we would need to buy loads of stuff for but if anyone has any ideas of things we can make with basic supplies, that would be great :) Or if anyone happens to know where I can get loads of craft supplies for free that would be even better lol......ok I know that's very unlikely lol, but your ideas would be gratefully received :)

This is such a sweet card Lora. Love the soft pastel colors, perfect for the cute image.
I wish I had some ideas for you for the school fair. Bookmarks would probably be quick and cheap to make but I am sure you have already done those.
Hope your Mojo returns soon.
