Tilda & Vintage Violet - The Ribbon Girl GDT & Addicted To Stamps DT Cards

Good morning lovely peeps,
I have a long post today as I have two cards to share, one of sweet Tilda & one of Vintage Violet so I'll get straight down to the important stuff.
Firstly the lovely Mary from the Ribbon Girl invited me to be a Guest Designer for The Ribbon Girls Magnolia Only Challenge, thanks so much for inviting me over to play Mary :)
I most definitely picked the right month to be a GDT as this months's challenge is
Ooooh my favourite lol.
The copic colours I've used are -
skni - E11, E01, E000, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, wrap - W4, W2, W00, stars - YR24, YR21
The papers I've used are Pion, the sentiment is by Paper Make Up & hopefully I have linked everything else in Inlinkz and not forgotten anything!
 Here's a few close up's of those lovely sparkly embellies.
I tried to add my goodies from The Ribbon Girl in Inlinz but for some reason it doesn't want to play nice so here's what I used -
Sparkly button, Memo Pins, Beaded White Stamen, Pearl & Diamante embellishment, Diamante snowflake stickpin,  Kort & Godt ivory roses & Crysanth, Cream Lace
There are two fabby prizes up for grabs, a £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl & also 1 x Magnolia stamp from Magnolia Sweden.
I haven't entered challenges for ages, occasionally I link them but never seem to get around to actually entering them so I'm attempting to make more effort and get my blogging back on track!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Hazelnuts - show some white, Our Creative Corner - anything goes, Card Makin' Mamas - use a rubber stamp, Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes, Tilda's Town - Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - buttons, Winter Wonderland - all tied up, Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with ribbon, Crimbo Crackers - cute, Cute Card Thursday - tie it up, Stampavie & More - ribbon, Whimsy Inspiration - anything goes


Next up I have my DT card for 
& this challenge it's eyes down as we are playing 
I thought I would colour up one of my many neglected Saturated Canary digis for a change and I have used the super cute Vintage Violet.
I've used the middle row across - lace, flowers and sentiment. 
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E21, E00, E000, R12, hair - E19, E17, E15, E11, clothes & boots - RV93, RV91, V000 / R85, R83, R81 / W4, W2, W00 / C3, C1, C00
The papers I've used on this card are Maja Design & the cute handbag charm is from my stash.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Allsorts - birthday, Crafty Calendar - blooms and blossoms, Di's Digi Designs - winged things,  Sweet Stampin'- doilies and dies, Alphabet Challenge - H is for happy, Digi Haven - butterfly, Inspire Me Friday - anything goes, Happy Campers - lace, Creative Belli - flowers, The Paper Shelter - charming, Everybody Art - flowers
 I have used some of Simon Says Stamps gorgeous new Summer release exclusive products. I was like a kid on Christmas morning when I open up the box to see so many pretty dies and cute stamps especially as I really wanted a pretty butterfly in this release and I got it, actually there are four, thanks so much Heidi x

















The lovely green cut out leaves are also one of Simon's new exclusive dies and the sentiment is another new product in the exclusives range & in all honesty I love them all and you will be seeing more of them from me very soon.

Sorry for picture overload in this post peeps & I still have one more I want to share as today is the first time I have blogged since the horrific murder of one of our brave soldiers Lee Rigby on Wednesday. 
I am sure like everyone else I stared at the TV in horror, not quite believing what I had just seen & heard. I've displayed the Support Our Soldiers (SOS) ribbon & Help For Hero's badges in my sidebar for as long as I've had my blog showing my support for friends & family either serving or who have served in the British forces.
Jodie's friend Zack is currently on tour in Afghanistan & he was so upset & angry when Jode spoke to him on Wednesday night, Zack said the mood in camp went from upbeat & optimistic to one he hopes he will never experience again so they really need our support now more than ever. 
There is a collection in Lee Rigby's name for Help For Hero's if anyone wishes to donate to this worthwhile cause.
Rest in peace brave soldier.

Thanks for stopping by

  18. I can sooo much relate to your feelings about the horrific murder of Lee Rigby!
    My brother in law serves as an officer in the U.S.Airforce and has served his country and many people/ civillians all over the world.
    Makes you wonder why no one stepped in to help the poor soldier!
    Maybe one person couldn't have done it, but there were so many people out there at that very moment and I just kept wondering if all those people would have acted as one man, maybe, just maybe the soldier could have been saved!
    I feel so sorry for his family too!

    Your cards are FAB as always!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Bye from the Netherlands,
