Mum my friend

Well this isn't like me but I'm trying to make up for not blogging for a while
    so here is my 2nd card today xxx

                ' My Mum My Friend '
 which I'm entering in The Just Magnolia 'Pink' challenge   Totally Gorjuss Challenge 103 pastel Christmas andTotally Papercrafts Challenge 89 has a layered theme


                        Again I have used a stamp from the Magnolia Sweet Christmas Collection
                                             but coloured her using  Promarkers pastel shades.

                                I have used Spellbinders labels to die cut the shape around her.

The flowers, string of pearls and pearl pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

    I love to leave a loose tag on my creations and this one is no exception so slotted behind is a Doohickey tag left blank for a personal message but also inside I have stamped onto another Doohickey tag my mum my friend  using a sentiment stamp and ticket stamp from stampingallday

                          The daisy ribbon is from East of India.The satin ribbon from my stash.

                                          I think a great card for any occasion not only Xmas
                                                              Hope you like it

                                                                   Hugs Shell xx


   Morning everyone
             I hope this finds you well.
               I dont seem to be finding the time to blog as much I would like just lately.Had a shopping day in Manchester with Mollie yesterday.I went xmas shopping -with a list - and came back with nothing on it  but a lot of bags that seemed to disappear into her bedroom.
  Here is a card I've made much more interesting than me waffling on

So here we have Tilda fronm the new Sweet Christmas collection but I think she would look just as sweet on any project any time of the year.
She has been coloured with copics along with the Molly Bloom corner stamp.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've added stickles to them.
The Doohickey tag has been left loose so it can have a personal message added to it but I have attatched 2 sentiments from LOTV.
Also used Doohickey lace border
East of India Daisy ribbon
Pink satin ribbon from stash
Card Candi
Magnolia papers
Tilda papers from Panduro hobby
Bazzill card stock 
and sizzix heart die cuts
