Colour Create/Magnolia-licious DT and Digital Delight Spotlight Guest Designer

Hi everyone, Today's post is a very long one. I hope you will be able to hang with me. I have 2 cards to show you today with LOTS of pictures.. *smile*

It's Thursday and time again for the Colour Create Challenge.
Sharon our WONDERFUL Challenge blog leader has picked a very fun colour combo for Challenge 46 today
Baby Pink and Pastel Blue
Our sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. You can get all of the details if you visit the Challenge blog.

Today I have used the very cute little TINGLA by Magnolia and can be purchased at

This next photo is of the inside of the card. As you can see I have made a space to add a photo of the NEW LITTLE ONE.

This next photo is of the second inside page. Lots of room to write all of the stats for that new little one.

I hope you have time to stop by the other DT's blogs to leave them a little love.

Delightful Sketches

I want to say WOW what an honor to be picked as Guest DT for Digital Delights. I love to play the challenges when the time fits into my very hectic schedule.

I have used a very fun sketch by Card Patterns for this card.

I just know that someone is going to ask me how did I get that string above and below his hand so I will tell you.. hee hee hee. I have printed the image 2 times then cut out the hands and I have popped them on top and put the string under the pop tape.
