DigitalTuesday -"Button Up" and a few Whiif Of Joy cards

I've been at home all day today, so decided I would make the most of it and make some cards :)

First of all my Digital Tuesday card. The theme this week is "Button Up" and we are being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, who also gave the design team some images to play with, one of which I have used on my card.

 I coloured the image with Promarkers and also coloured the ticket sentiment which is a freebie digi I have had for ages but can't remember where I got it from..... if I come across where I got it from, I will update this post with a link.
I'm not sure who makes the papers I used on this card........ I do know they are both by the same company but they were both in my scrap box with no names on them.
I made some flowers with the left over scraps and my SU! 5 petal flower punch, little flowers from my stash and the buttons I coloured green with a Promarker but unfortunately you can't realy see the green here.
The swirl/flourish was in my stash and I have no idea where it came from (I think someone sent me it) and the little green button is a 3d sticker which was part of a design but I just cut it out.

I was playing around with some of my older WOJ stamps today and noticed that Katharina is having a guest DT call, so thought I would give it a go. To enter you have to include some rolled flowers on your creation, which I had never tried making before, but they are fun to make and very easy :)

No matter how much times I tried to get a decent pic of this card, it just wasn't happening! So I apologise for the rubish pics. It's really dull here today but hopefully it will be brighter tomorrow and I can get some better pics of these cards!.

As I said, I used one of the older Whiff Of Joy stamps and coloured her with Promarkers. It's not often that I get my older stamps out but I am determined that I am going to give my older ones an airing and this one is so pretty that it would be such a shame not to use her.
The papers are all K&Co, I realy love these papers, but they are sooo hard to photograph!
I coloured the ribbon which was white with a Promarker to match the image and made some of the rolled flowers with the scraps of leftover paper,  cut out some leaves freehand and to finish I added some pearl sprays which I have had for ages but never used because of their colour- they never seemed to match any card I make, but they were just the perfect colour for this one :)

 I enjoyed making the rolled flowers so much that I just had to make more :) so I made another WOJ card, this time not so girly.

The papers I have used are by Nitwits, image of course is WOJ and coloured with Promarkers. Some raffia which I bought in Montrose last Summer, a Prima flower and some more of the rolled flowers, this time I made them just with plain brown card. The swirl was from a friend and the string was some that I got from my MIL and coloured with Promarkers (it was just plain white string to start with) and the sentiment is from a Stampology Autum Leaves set.

Right that's it from me today. I have to get going and pick the girls up from school soon, but think I will do some colouring before I have to leave :)

Thanks for stopping by

Beautiful cards Lora, love those rolled flowers, haven't tried them yet either. Also haven't tried the WOJ DT call for some time, maybe I'll give it a try again (if hubby lets me as he says I can't keep up with the DT's I am on right now LOL.

WOW! Each of those cards is wonderful! I especially love that last one. That image is great!

Oh, and I was wondering if you already sent my prize out and the card for Jeanne?? I know there was a problem and it didn't get sent on time. No hurry I was just wondering cause I haven't seen anything and thought maybe I should mention in case it is lost?!

Hope all is going okay for you!
