A bit of Magnolia and La-La Land :)

I have a couple of dt cards to share today. Starting with my card for the challenge at By The Cute and Girly where the challenge this month is "Favourite Things".
I was going to use an image from Bugaboo Stamps who is one of our sponsors this month (the other sponsor is Lili of the Valley), but I ran out of paper to print on, so I had to use something I've been using up images that I had previously stamped/printed.
Bugaboo Stamps are offering one winner digital images (winners choice) and Lili Of The Valley are offering a £10 gift certificate.

I didn't have much of a choice of pre stamped or printed images, so I chose this Tilda and coloured her up with Copics. Not sure what occasion this card would be for though lol.
I couldn't decide on one or two favourite things to use, so I used loads! haha
So my favourites are, lace, flowers, pearls, and of course my favourite things is Copics :)

The checked paper is from a little craft shop that prints their own papers, the music paper is from an old sheet music book and the crown one I think is Raspberry Road.
I can't remember where I got the gorgeous lace from, but I love it:) Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I attacked them all with stickles lol, pearl heart thing is from Hobbycraft, pink trim I got in a pack from Poundland! and the pretty crochet flower is from Little Snippets Etsy store.

A close up of the lovely crochet flowers from Geraldine at Little Snippets, just because I love em :)
I added a button and threaded through a scrap of lace.

My other card is for Digital Tuesday where the challenge this week is "Frame It", and I really didn't want to post it because I hate my colouring on this card (which is why I am posting it today instead of Tuesday when I should of posted it!)
I used Copics and the dark brown colours went all waxy and streaky :( and I didn't have time to start over again, or another image to colour anyway. The rest of the image is ok, but the hair is horrible! Just skip over her head! lol

I do love this image though :) It's from La-La Lan Crafts. I cut her out and stuck her onto a frame digi image which is from our sponsor this week- My Grafico. It's from the Delicate Frames digital stamp set by Lil Ellaboudy Design I'm just glad that I printed the frame out before I ran out of paper! I wanted to add little pearls to the dots on the frame, but I couldn't find any. I know I have but they have vanished....probably some little hands have taken them....aka my Daughter!! lol
So I added some stickles instead.
The papers are by Prima, flowers which again are stickled are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pretty butterfly I got from The Works and I used a little piece of stringed pearls beside the flowers. They pearls were white but I wanted them blue, so I just coloured them with one of the Copics that I used to colour the image so it would match perfectly.....don't ya just love markers :)
Oh forgot to say that the prize this week is any digital set from My Grafico (no price limitation,  so the set the winner chooses could be worth up to $20!).

Thanks so much for stopping by and for any comments that you leave.
I have been rubbish at blogging lately, but I will be on a mission this weekend to visit everyone who has left me comments :)
