A Little Bit Blue x 2

Hi all, I hope that you are all well, it has started to snow again here in Gloucester but at the moment it is the very fine stuff, it is also very icy.
I actually had some 'me' time yesterday and went through my stamp hoard, I also got very inky, with stamping, cutting out, colouring with Copics, promarkers and Debbie Moore's Vintage Shimmer Paints, it was heaven.
My first card is featuring a stamp that I have had for a few years but it has never been inked she is from The Greeting Farm and called Magdalene, I stamped her twice then cut her out, I have coloured her with a mixture of both Copics and Promarkers/Fleximarkers.  The flower stamps are from Elusive Images which I have had for several years, I used Black Tuxedo Momento ink, cut them out and coloured them with promarkers/Fleximarkers, I added some yellow Viva Decor to the centre.  The base card is a white scalloped 6x6, I then used my 6x6 grand spots embossing folder cut it out to fit the card size then mounted it onto Kraft card, the central circle is a spellbinder die I have used linen textured card stock, finally I added a ribbon, bow and butterfly.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

For my second card I used one of my beloved Tilda stamps with a Christmas theme.  I have used Debbie Moore's Vintage Shimmer Paints I used Copics for her skin and hair. I used my Waltzing Mouse stamps for the background and side panels, also a Spellbinders rectangle die for mounting the image onto, finally I added some flowers and lots of silver glitter.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Well that's it from me until tomorrow I hope that you all have a lovely weekend, hugs to all.

Two lovely cards Lorraine, love the images (I have both of these, though not used either in a while), those flowers on the first one look gorgeous. Glad you enjoyed your day getting inky, hope the snow has stopped, we haven't had much at all, just still on the hills but all roads are clear. Keep warm.
