Two pretty girls

A quick post from me this morning as I have loads to do today, gardening, shopping and ironing. Hopefully I'll be back later this evening to catch up with some of you. I see I have lost 2 followers and gained 2, so welcome to my 2 new followers.

This fits card features so many of my favourite things, purple, lots of layers, beautiful papers, flowers and pearls not to mention the lovely SN image. This is one of the first SN images I bought and for me although I love the new images the older ones are still the best. She is called Pen Pal and is coloured with Promarkers with touches of Sakura clearstar pen. Papers are from various Papermani packs apart from the gingham which is Laura Ashley as is the sparkly gingham ribbon. Flowers are from Wild Orchid., pinch used is an MS border punch.
Sugar Bowl Choose your own sketch from the archive. This is number 8
Die Cut Dreams Gingham
Creative Card Crew Cute and girly
Craft your days away Favourite things

The second image is another of the gorgeous Pollycraft bears, Kiki rose fairy, which I bought last week. I wanted a real summer feel to this card with lots of different flowers so used an assortment of papers,the main paper is BG Euphoria. Challenges
Passion for Promarkers Unusual sketch, which was fun
