By The Cute and Girly DT cards

I'm a bit late with these. Actually I'm four days late!! but it's all Blogger's fault!
I did have a post scheduled for the 1st but it never posted and I haven't been on my blog since then to notice lol.
Better late then never though (seem to be saying that an awful lot lately!), so here's the cards I made for this month By The Cute and Girly challenge which is "Warm Summer Days".

The image I used on this one is called Mabel and is from Crafts 4 Eternity who is one of our sponsors this month. The other girls who used this image all coloured it in "normal" giraffe colours but I wanted to be a bit different and thought I would colour her pink! lol
I coloured her with Promarkers and I think she really suits pink, don't you? lol
The bottom paper is Papermania and the other one was from my stash and didn't have the name left on. It's a gorgeous glittered paper though although you can only see little bits of it in the pic.
The ribbon is from my local haberdashery and I just made a faux bow and all the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 I don't know what happened to this pic but it's gone a weird shade of yellow! lol
I used a Sarah Kay image that I got months ago in a rak and coloured her with Promarkers.
The yellow paper is Chatterbox and the other one is Papermania.
Ribbon is from Stampin Up! and the flowers are a bit of a mix. The pink roses (large and small) are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the small yellow ones are from a local post office shop!! (just shows you can find crafty stash anywhere! lol) and the large yellow one and the pin I think are from Tabby Crafts.
The pearl spray bits are ones I got from a local florist warehouse which I need to pay a visit to because I only have a couple left and I love em, and I added a few pearls from my stash just because I noticed a pack of them sitting on my desk lol.

That's it from me for today. I'm off to break up a fight for the 3rd time this morning. Why do brothers and sisiter fight so much....ggrrrr. I need to find something to occupy the three of them before they kill each other!!

Hope you are having a better day than I am! lol. Thanks for stopping by :)

These are super cute Lora. Love your pink giraffe!! Those flowers are just gorgous too.
Love your second card too, that image is just adorable.
I know what you mean about the kids fighting. It seems to me that that is all mine are up to these days. Hopefully they'll get it all out now that they are kids and be the best of friends when they are grownups!
