Good morning everyone, thanks for all your kind messages, I slept last night for the time time in nearly a week so I think I’ve turned the corner now. I’ve not had the energy to do anything, I’ve not even ventured into the attic all week to make a card (“blimey, you really must feel ill” my husband said!!)
The challenge over at Lili’s Little Fairies this week is a lovely one …Classic Christmas …so do go and play along. The DT is quite large now and been split into teams so I didn’t have to make a card this week (thankfully!)
We’ve been sponsored by Mary and Andrea over at The Ribbon Girl this week so the winner (drawn at random) will win a £10 voucher to spend in their delicious online store
I have great news for all you Lili of the Valley mini masterpiece lovers because the next 16 sheets will be launched on the website at midnight UK time next Tuesday 16th October (that's the midnight between Monday and Tuesday!)
Here’s a little peek for you of one of the new designs …this little munchkin is one of our best selling boy images and he’s called Abracadabra! (click on the link to see the stamp)
I know a few of you (myself included) struggle with using the darker colours so this sheet will be very popular I think …all the hard work has been done for you by our fabulous Bev so you can get straight on with making your lovely card without worrying about the colouring!
I used black and white embossed card from the Core’dinations Tillie dot pad, I edged it with a white adirondack dauber and then used some of the frantage aged white powder which I’m putting on everything at the moment.
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and I’ve fastened it with the Tim Holtz mini staples which I’ve also been using a lot.
The star border is a doohickey die and the image was cut out and layered using Spellbinders circle nestabilities
The white spiders web is for sale in the Lili of the Valley showroom, we have some lovely new ribbons and lace for you if you’re able to visit us (sorry but they’re not available online) and finally I just put a bit of black soot distress stickles along the bottom of the white card
Looking at it now I think I will put a bit of a blue shadow around him …but I didn’t think of it until I looked at the picture!
Have a lovely day
