Just Magnolia & A Spoon Full of Sugar

Morning everyone, hope your all enjoying the gorgoeus sunshine.... I've taken a couple of days off work to rest and relax... works been so busy the last 6 months I thought it was time to take a few days off and what a perfect time too with all the sunshine we've had the last couple of days.
With a litte relaxing I've mananged to make a couple of cards.

My first card is for Just Magnolia ~ its their 1st challenge this week, and I wanted to give the DT my support. They have a wonderful sketch to follow by the very talented Donalda... I love sketches, so this was perfect for me. They also have an amazing prize too... so why not pop over and give them your support and check out all the fabulous work from the DT ~ they are a very talented bunch.

I'm in love with the Pink Passion SU card stock at the moment so couldn't resist using it for my card along with the gorgoeus BG Bittersweet papers ~ which I'm running out... must get some more ordered. I've also used my favourite Pink Tilda with Rose... just perfect all this gorgeous PINK. This card really makes me smile ~ I'm not one to always love my cards, but I really love this one... and hope my special friend does to.

And here's the inside ~ quite simple:

Thanks girls for a wonderful 1st challenge xx

Papers: SU ~ Pink Passion, BG ~ Bittersweet
Image: Magnolia ~ Pink Tilda with Rose, Sentiment ~ WOJ
Mediums: Pro Markers
Tools: Nesties ~ Labels 1, Swirl Flourish Punch

My 2nd card is for A Spoon Full Of Sugar which I haven't payed along with in a long long time, so I'm pleased to have the time to play this week as they also have a fabulous Sketch to follow by the very talented Caryn
Im not sure I like this card as much as my 1st, although I've used more of my favourite BG ~ Bittersweet papers.... so Im sure it'll grown on me.

The sweet image is WOJ ~ Melinda with Bouquet and again all the gorgeous flowers are from Poppicrafts.

I managed to decorate the inside too ~ nothing fancy though.

The DT have all created some fabulous work again, so why not pop over and take a peek.
Well Im off to get cut my hair cut today ~ something that is well over due... but I guess that's what no work is for... time to do the things I don't normally have time to do, and off for a little shopping trip to Hobby Crafts to pick up some supplies.

Supplies: Basic Grey ~ Bittersweet
Image: WOJ ~ Melinda with Bouquet
Mediums: Pro Markers
Tools: Nesties
Supplies: Flowers ~ Poppicrafts, Pearls and Spacers ~ Stash
