Princess Tilda in Pink and Chocolate

Morning all, see it slipped already no post since last Monday!! sorry.
Been a pretty bad weekend sadly I lost my nan on Saturday after a very short spell in hospital, but at least she is at peace now and not in any pain.
Didn't get round to doing much this weekend so I thought I would post this card that I made in one of my workshops the other week but never got round to posting.
The theme was 'Shaker cards', so I decided to combine this with an easel design and used beadazzles to fill the shaker.

'Princess Tilda' is one of my very favourite Tilda's as she is just so pretty and lovely to colour.

Anyway I am thrilled to be back with the wonderful Magical Mondays DT and would like to thank Vicky again for giving me a little break to get sorted. Well today the theme for the challenge over at Magical Mondays is 'Love' so we want to see hearts and romance in bucket loads. We are being sponsered by our very own Lacey and her fab shop Stamp and Create so please go and check out the fab prize she has put up.

I chose to use this beautiful fairy from Paper Makeup teamed with this gorgeous collection of DP's from MME (I think the collection is called 'Be Loved').

Rock it Out in Black and White!!!!

Hi again,
Here is one for the boys! I love monochrome designs and they seem to work really well for mens designs. This is one of my fave manga images from Sugar Nellie just perfect for awkward teens. The sentiment comes from the great Rockstar set from Inkadinkado and the DP's are from Fancy Pants. Add afew stars, buttons and distress ink and it's done.

I used the Iron Fence border punch from Martha Stewart to edge the front panel of the card. The image is coloured with the Cool Grey range of ProMarkers.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - 'Something For The Boys'
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 65 'As You Like It'
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge 96 'Whateva!'

See you again tomorrow with my first DT card in a long time!
