Magnolia Down Under :: Swirly Swirls

Good Morning.. I hope you are all well... as for me have not been feeling great and thus have not really been around blogland much this week. I'm feeling quite ill from the hormone injections I am on that are supposed to help the precious little embryos implant... yup - last Saturday we had 2 little ones transferred... so now it's just lots of waiting and praying and going CRAZY! lol!

Anyway enough babbling from me... Here are some cards I made for some very special young girls... I chose paper from Basic Grey that included some swirls on it and also I hand wrote the sentiments in swirly writing so that I could enter these in the Magnolia Down Under challenge which this week is swirly swirls

I used two Tildas from the Spring kit I purchased from magnolia... loving these fairytale images!! And I coloured them in with???... yeah, of course! Copics!!

Skin - E000. E00, E11, R20, Hair: E 50, 51, 53, clothes and flowers: BV02, o4, 08 + lilac spica pen

Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20, Hair: Yr31, E50, E51, Y00, dress: R81,83,85, flower: R85, 89, G28 + blossom spica
