Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps DT Buttons/Bows and or Beads

A very good morning everyone,  I hope your week is going well and you're getting lots of crafty time for yourself.

It's time for another fabulous challenge over at 

This week the theme is Buttons and Bows and/or Beads, of course you could use all three elements if you choose.

I've used various stamps from Magnolia-licious store and they are

Tilda in Cotton Dress from the *New* Once upon a Time collection (spring 2013)  isn't she adorable.  I've coloured her with Derwent soft pencils and some copics for the base skin tone and hair.  I've also used the little crown from the Crown Kit of the same collection.

The other two stamps I've used are Chocolate and Post Card from the With Love Collection.  I will put a list of ingredients and links where possible at the bottom of my post for you.

As always our sponsor for this fortnights challenge is our wonderful Diana - owner of Magnolia-licious Stamps and the lucky winner will receive a wonderful special surprise package

Do please pop over and take a peek at the breathtaking beautiful creations my sweet friends on the DT have made for you this week. Their talent just shines through.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead and I look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations over the next couple of weeks.

Hugs xox
