I'm back with a couple of Challenges....

Hi..yes I'm here now..after having a little blogging break..I've regrouped and now rearing to go again...well that if I dont nod I said I have a little temp job at the moment - working for the same company as I did back in February..I love the work..but as its a Finance company with trading and dealing all around the world has to be an early start...most mornings at my desk at 6am...but then as I only do 4hrs at the moment..I'm home just after 10am...yes its weird..but its only till I dont mind really...and the best thing of course is that the moneys not bad...(more stash???) talking of stash..I mentioned that I've been having a 'cull' on my unwanted items...and much to my delight I have been able to replace that with very wanted stash...I've invested in some more Wild Orchid flowers...and few ribbons..and some super delish designer papers..(went a bit mad with those) better get on with the cards...OK first up is a gorgeous Tilda for this weeks Just Magnolia challange..

..its a fab sketch by Dawny P this week and I use some New DP's by Memory Box... bought a pad called Fronds..and I have to say these are too lush for words..really gorgeous...I coloured Tilda with copics and promakers..she is in olive green although the pic makes it look a bit yellow..added a spotty organza ribbon and bow..some lovely Wild Orchid flowers..finished with pearls and sparkle..

Now my next card is to cover a couple of challenges I hope...

..yes it's another gorgeous LOTV stamp...Rosy Posy..I just love her...such a dream to colour and again I used copics..the DP's are a mixture of MME and Memory Box...I added a fab tulle bow, punched flower with a button and finshed with sparkle and pearls....I am entering this card for This weeks Totally Gorjuss Challenge - Shades of Aqua..Colour Create - Ivory, Duck Egg Blue and one other colour ..and Stamptacular Challenge - Buttons and Bows..
and last but not next card is for
Lili of the Valley Challange - Seasons...

..I love all the LOTV images and its so hard to choose a favourite...this one is so cute..just love the little puppy...the DP's are Papermania..surprisingly nice Silent Night..I added a bit of holly..pearls and loads of sparkle...
Well thats all back on Weds with My ABC Challenge DT
bye for now
