Just Magnolia #26

Hi everyone, well I did warn you that I was in the mood for challenges didn't I?
Here's another one, this time for Just Magnolia which is very appropriate seeing as I can't seem to stop colouring Tildas at the moment!
This week's sketch is by the lovely Mina and I thought it was a great one, not too fussy. I've tried to keep the colours a little more subtle this time which I think I prefer.
This challenge finishes tomorrow, so I'm only just in time (there's a surprise then, NOT!) I do like this sweet little girl but 'Jam Tilda' seems a very strange name, or is it just me that thinks that?

Card Details:
* Image - Magnolia 'Jam Tilda'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - K & Co
* Sentiment Tag - part of birthday prezzie stash
* Everything else from my stash

We have my Best Friend and her hubby visiting tomorrow on their way to Southampton for a cruise starting on Saturday. We worked out that we haven't seen them for about 3 years, so I'm really excited about it. I do miss cruising, but now that we're both retired the pennies just won't allow, unfortunately.
I may schedule a post for yet ANOTHER challenge for tomorrow, yes, I've got a few lined up on my table waiting to be completed so I can do some more colouring, good 'cos I love it so much. Just thought .... maybe it's the fumes from those alcohol pens that make me so addicted to it LOL!

Great colouring Chrissie. I'm still not getting the hair colouring myself but practice makes perfect as they say. Love your choice of colours and pps etc.
Enjoy your friend's visit!

I love your drop shadow around all of your images. This is a great look, and I love how your shadow matches the color of the cards.
You are a great colorer... Great cards here on your blog! TFS!!!

Oooo, this is gorgeous, Chrissie.
The blue papers are delish and your colouring first class.

A very different colour scheme and how lovely it is. I can't see any jam on this Tilda though. She's beautifully coloured though - jam or not.
