Some Girly cards and some news

I have to warn you that this is going to be a long post, so you might want to get comfy before you start reading!

It's my turn to host the challenge over at By The Cute and Girly  so I thought I would use our name for this months challenge theme and go with "Cute and Girly".

I made 2 cards this month and my first one is made with a digi stamp set from one of our sponsors this month, My Grafico, who very kindly gave  the design team one of their digi stamp sets to use but I forgot which set we got and used the wrong one lol.... oh well, at least I used a set from the same designer ;)

All the images/elements I have used are from Zenware Designs Slumber Party/Sleepover set from My Grafico.
All the images were printed seperately and cut out then I made the little "scene", but if I had thought about it, I would of combined them in a graphics program and then printed them instead of having to cut them all out individualy because that phone wire was a nitemare to cut out!! lol
I coloured everything with Promarkers, the papers are Papermania, flowers are all Prima's and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

My other card was made a while ago and I can't remember what papers I used but the image is one of Meljens.

 The flowers are Prima's and Papermania roses and the leaves are ones I just cut from green card, and the lace is some from my stash that I have had for ages.

I have one more card to show which is my DT card for Charisma Cardz which I forgot to post!!
The challenge this week is Bling and Sparkles.

As usual I coloured the sweet Tilda with Promarkers and added stickles to her wings for some sparkle.
The papers are craftwork cards and.........actually I am not sure who makes the lacy patterened paper, sorry.
I followed the sketch at Friday sketchers but as I am late in posting my card, the challenge is finished lol.
The circle sentiment is a digi from Pink Gem which I got in a decoupage set that I bought. I don't do decoupage but I bought the set just for the 2 sentiments lol.
The lace I bought last week from a local haberdashery and the flowers I made myself.

A close up of sweet baby Tilda and her sparkly wings :)

And I promise this is the last pic! I made the flowers with tissue paper and paper doilies and the sparkly gem brad is American Crafts. 
I know I said I would do a tutorial on the last flowers I made (the ones with the fabric), but I just haven't had time to this week. I will get some sort of tutorial put together this week though now that the kids are off school on their Easter holidays.

Finally (I promise this really is the last thing!! lol), I have to tell you all that I was chosen as a DT member for Inky Impressions!! Their stamps are sooo cute and I can't wait to use them! :)

Thanks for stopping by.
