Paper Play DT & La La Land GDT & Anniversary Candy Winner

Hello peeps,
It has been so lovely hot here the last couple of days so I've been making the most of the nice weather while it's here and been spending time in the garden, I haven't been able to do any pottering as between my shoulder & thumb gardening is out for me at the moment, it's just been nice to be out relaxing in the fresh air :)
I'm going to try and whizz through my post as there's a lot to get through.

I have a couple of cards to share today and first up is my 
PAPER PLAY DT card and this weeks challenge is A SHAPED CARD
Ingredients -
Image - Saturated Canary, Medium - copics, Papers - Magnolia, Flowers - Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid, Pearls - Melissa Frances, Ribbon & Lace - stash, Chipboard leaves - Make It Crafty, Tools - Spellbinders, Magnolia Doo Hickey heart swirls, Cheery Lynn butterfly, sewing machine

Apologies I can't give the copic colours for this image as I coloured it ages ago and didn't make a note but I'm guessing the pinks are R85, R83, R81, the skirt is the mid to lower E50's & the skin & hair are probably my usual favourites.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes

Next up for inspiration Friday I have my GDT card for La La Lands where this weeks challenge is MORE THAN ONE FOLD.
Each Monday and Friday the design teams from La-la Land Crafts bring you a new & inspriational theme. Play along with any of our themes and enter your link into our Customer Gallery for your chance at winning our monthly prize. 
I have at last managed to colour an image, not as well as I'd like but my thumb was so flipping painful trying to colour I was just grateful to have finished it.

Image - Sweet Dreams Marci, La La Land, Medium - Copics, Paper - My Minds Eye, Follow Your Heart , Sentiment - Cats Life Press, Flowers - eBay & Wild Orchid, Sparkle - crystal glamour dust, Tools MS classic 3-in-1 butterfly punch, & MS frond leaf punch.

Inspire Me Fridays- anything goes
For my last candy draw I had a practice at saving the Random.Org picture on this laptop before I did the draw & didn't manage to do it so I eventually got my old laptop working to do the draw on there and save the image, but this time I forgot I still hadn't sussed it out & didn't want to pull my old one out as I had already done the draw so after 55 minutes of trying & coming very close to throwing this computer out of the window I have managed to save the Random.Org picture for proof of my candy winner, but the really annoying thing is I am not sure how I managed it as I've tried so many different ways lol.

A big thank you to everyone who entered my anniversary candy the number picked by Random.Org is

Congrats Sue W, please email me your full postal addy moominstacey@live.co.uk and I will pop your goodies in the post.

  23. Hi Mandy, you've inspired me, I have this little Marci and every time I've tried to ink her up it's been nothing short of a disaster! LOL so she's been sitting in her little spot amongst the other Marci's neglected. Now I'm about to try her again thanks to your fabulous card!

    I love the SC card, your colouring is so awesome.
