Love is in the air over at Basic grey challenge!

Good Afternoon!
 Well the snow has finally arrived here in Dundee! Yesterday it snowed constantly from about  07.30 in the morning till about 9pm, but we still only have a disapointing half inch of slushy stuff to show for it!! :(  Still it is a beautiful sunny day here today so a great day to stay in my craft room and have some crafty fun, although mojo is still a bit MIA!!
Well it's time for another great challenge over at Basic grey and as always we have our regular brilliant sponsor
Wow wish I could win this!! Lol!!
So onto the challenge theme!! this fortnight in a timely fashion ready for Valentines day it is:
Love is in the air!
I have used lovely "Tilda with dot bow" from the new with love collection from magnolia (and a new favourite!!) and masked her up with the I love you sentiment from the sweet crazy love collection, I think they go perfectly together!! I have coloured the images with my copics, I have used a mixture of greys, in fact all the greys!! the red I achieved my colouring with R56 and 59 then highlighting the lighter areas with a totally different red R05 I really like the effect! I think I need to be braver and play more with colours!! The Beautiful papers I have used are Scarlets letter by of course Basic Grey!, the doily is in fact from Simon says stamp from a stash I bought when lucky enough to win a voucher from another challenge! 
the Challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Mid week Magnolia's - Anything goes
lovely Hanglar only - Ribbon or lace (lace)
Tilda's town - Celebrate (love!)
Abc challenge - Favourite tilda stamp!
one stop craft challenge - Sparklie and bling (pearls)
Have a warm safe weekend my loves!

Well it's time for another songbird challenge! this time it is 
Baby Mine!
I have used this Beautiful image from Teddy Bo This was actually a freebie that the lovely Gayle gave away a little while ago!! I just added a little hint of colour with my copics. the papers are Cloud nine baby boy, the sentiment is lili of the valley and the pretty corner a la la land die.

Happy Saturday!!!!
Wow just about half way through January already! Still no real snow here in Dundee! I thought we were going to have a really white winter, after we had a good covering in the middle of November!!! Not sure if the lack of snow is a good thing or not!! the child in me loves snow, the grown up thinks about the hassles!!
