Lola and Lilli

I got these absolutely fabulous little downloads from - they are the most adorable pair of little girls that you buy in a zip file. They come with or sans sentiments and there are oodles of different ones in each download. There are some really cute free downloads - this month there are really girly lavender background papers. I had a really enjoyable evening colouring them in, they are so adorable they really don't need much doing to them.
My teenage sister is always getting told to clean her room, so I've made her the "Clean your Room" door hanger card - it is just tied on with a piece of ribbon. On the reverse is a Lola Rose image with "Because I'm Your Mother, that's why" .... I'd say my mum will have it permanently hung on her door!
I stuck to a lavendar theme for all of these - the next one is a little single card in a wallet, in my favourite colour combo of the moment lavender and lime green. Added a few flower beads that I wired up to the front.
The handbag is for a friend of mine who is having a baby - inside is a little handmade note book for writing hospital appointments or thoughts on her pregnancy in and a little wallet card to keep scan photos in. The matching card has Lola Rose Baby Joy on the front and decorated with a bit of lace.

Did you print straight onto textured card? I love the criss cross grain in the colours. Also what did you use to colour them, pencils? I'm assuming watercolour would seep into those grooves (and ruin it)The more I look at them the more I love them!!!
