Same - Same... but Different!

Friday was a lovely mail day (thankyou Karen) - I received the very cute Tilda with Hellebores stamp from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams 2011 Collection and quickly got to adding some colour to her with my Copics - 3 times -  LOL!! Then this afternoon (Sunday), I created some cards with my 3 coloured images - each of the cards uses the same sketch formula, the same lace and a selection of the same bling and charm embellishments.....but at the same time, each is uniquely different....and a little different to the usual flower arrangements I embellish my cards with!!

Copics Used:

Dress - R81, R83, R85
Hair - E53, E55, E57
Boots/Ribbon - B93, B95, B97
Flowers - YG67, YG45, B91

Copics Used:

Dress - R81, R83, R85
Hair/Boots -  E31, E33, E35, E37
Flowers - YG45, YG41, R81, E50

Copics Used:

Dress - BG01, BG02, BG05
Hair/Boots - E71, E74, E77
Dress Trim - RV91, RV93 and some clear Kindy Glitz
Flowers - BG93, BG96, RV91, RV93, RV95

....with all the bling on these cards I thought I might enter Challenge # 121 - Charms and Bling at Magnolia Downunder Challenges - rather great timing for my weekend's work!! ;)

2 Cards - 2 Challenges

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, was going to spend my day off playing in my happy room.....and I did! I decided it was time to get myself back into some online card challenges and of course I chose to play with my favourite images - the Magnolia Stamp Cuties and the wonderful Mo Manning Digital Characters.

Challenge #120 at Magnolia Downunder is "Shhh - It's a Secret" where we were asked to hide something within our creation. I chose to use Nurse Tilda and Doctor Edwin and "partially" hid them in  a little pocket in the front of a Get Well card. This was such a fun challenge, I really enjoyed giving this creation an interactive component - hopefully it will put a smile on the face of the recipient :)

I used my warm grey Copics to colour in their scrubs - W1, W3 and W5. I like the distressed look but then again my medical friends would probably prefer crisp white uniforms. LOL!!

Challenge #106 at Mo's Digital Challenge is Any Holiday or Celebration the perfect opportunity to get a start on my Christmas cards. Little Elf Mim is one of Mo's most popular images and you can see why! - this little Elf is very Cute and ever so Cheeky. I think I need to download the rest of the Elves in this series!

Copics Used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11 / Cheeks R20
Ornament - Y21, Y23, Y26
Pants & Stripes in Hat - R24, R27, R29
Top & Shoes - G03, G05, G07

I used Polar White flower soft for all the white fluffy trimmings. The sentiment is something quirky I came up with LOL! and generated on my computer using the font CKJournalling.

Well it is back to work for me tomorrow and already I am having withdrawals from my craft room.
