Stamptacular # 106 Girls and Swirls With Kaboodle Doodles and some Creative Inspiration

 It's Sunday and that means another fun challenge at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge blog where the theme is "Girls and Swirls!".  We are lucky enough to be sponsored for the whole of April by the fabby Magnolia-licious who are offering a super prize of two Minis to one lucky winner and we are additionally sponsored by My Favourite Things who are offering a $25 gift certificate this week. 
I chose this adorable marching Tilda with a flag for my card and coloured her with Copics and Promarkers.  My gorgeous papers are Prima "Analee" and the sentiment is SU.  I cut my swirl on my Cricut.  I got the measurements wrong and it came out huge but actually I think being super-sized is just right for our challenge.
Do check out the lovely creations from my teamies and then come and play along with us and don't forget to Stamp!  We don't call it the STAMPtacular Sunday Challenge for nothing!
I am also entering my card into Kaboodle Doodles who say "Let's Get Girly" and Creative Inspirations who want to see "Punches and Dies".  I have used an SU scallop punch at the base of my card and a Nestie around Tilda in addition to my Cricut die-cut swirl.
I've been away twice in the last three weeks so if I am a bit slow stopping by to see my blog buddies, please forgive me!

Tilda looks too cute in her boots and lace edge pillow case flag. That swirl is a perfect size. The DP with the solid CS makes an interesting play on your eyes.

Hi Lesley fab card, I'm loving the mega swirl:) The pearl maker is by WACO and I got mine at Cuddly Buddly. It's way easier to use than liquid pearls.

Alex said...

I love your big swirl! Really caught my attention and also the bright cheery colour and the sentiment. Tilda is cute as always, but this time, I think she gets upstaged by a swirl *lol* Love, Alex

Faye said...

Hey Fluffer. Super card. You're right, the swirl is spot on being that size and marching Tilda actually made me smile, she's a jaunty little minx isn't she?! Big hugs. xxx
