Tickled pink monthly challenge

I have to say a huge thank you to Lindsey for her expert advice on how to overcome my red copic problems!  I used the red copic and then a red prismacolor pencil for the shading and not a bit of colour run!
I have used the Lil Lolita Lylah digi for this card and have coloured her in with a mix of copics and prismacolor pencils. When I finished this card I was not sure on the colour of her dress, but then I thought that she looks like a real Aussie girl with her green and gold dress celebrating Christmas. 
I have used a sparkly backing paper and the dp is called tradition and gave it a little distressing around the edges. I also used some lace on the middle and some ribbon. I used my new snowflake punch and added a little bling to the middle.
I hope you like my Aussie Lylah! Have a good day everyone!

Christmas with tilda

Well I must say that I have had a fantastic weekend! Went to the Craft Fest in Melbourne and had a ball buying up a storm, some copics to add to my collection, some Christmas papers and other bits and pieces. I did this card with my new tilda, not sure what it is called though! I have coloured it with copic markers and have found that I can use the greens ok but am having lots of trouble with the reds! Does anybody have any good combination of reds?? I am using r20, r22, r24, and r29 but they don't combine as well for me as the greens that I have....any suggestions would be fantastic! I have also used the magnolia noel stamp for her to sit on. I also used a sticker from my stash with a Christmas bauble.
I have done this card to enter into:
Hope you have had a good weekend too!

Baby's 1st Christmas

  We have another lovely spring day here and I have enjoyed it to the full! Took the dog for a long walk this morning and this afternoon helped hubby in the garden. And now for some relaxing card making!
I made this card for that is wanting you to use
Colours Pink, Brown and White....( love these cakes!)
I have used a LOTV stamp and coloured it with my new copic's. I think I may need a bit more practice with them but I am having fun learning! I have used glitter on the hat and pom pom and cut it out and put it on foam  dots. I did the saying on the computer.
Hope you are having a great weekend!

A fairy Christmas.....

Hope you are enjoying your weekend! We are having a beautiful spring day, the sky is blue and bright!
I love this digi image that I got from mo manning, she is so sweet! I have made this to start my Christmas card collection as the lady's at work have already been asking if I will have any.

I have coloured her with prismacolor pencils and added glitter to the leaves, snow globe and her ruffle. I used a LOTV stamp for the sentiments, I just love these! I ordered them from England and will be using them heaps! I used another one for the inside circle that was cut with the nesties and also put it through the embossing folder so that it may look like snow....
I would like to enter this into the following:
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
