Anything goes …

 

 

Hey everyone, OMG I’m such a bad blogger  …

if you stopped by from the ideas to Inspire blog to see the details of my little folder I am so sorry that I didn’t do the post, where did the week go?? I promise that I will put it on in the next couple of days

The weather has been fabulous, I think Summer is here hooray and I’ve been enjoying the sunshine. I haven’t been near the attic where my computer and crafting stuff live as it’s been sooo bloomin hot up there!

 

We had a great time at the Lili of the Valley open day on Saturday, it’s always lovely to catch up with the dt girls, and a few friends old and new dropped in for a chat. You all loved the new stamps which we were very pleased about because they are a bit different from what you’d expect from LOTV

It’s the first week of the month which means over at Papertake Weekly it’s the usual Anything Goes theme

…there is an optional extra to make a non square card but this is only an option and if you don’t want to do this then you don’t have to

 

As our regulars will know, the first challenge of the month is sponsored by Lili Of The Valley

 

 

… and there’s a lovely £10 voucher for one lucky winner

I re-jigged a card that I made last year and was never quite happy with. I liked it too much to throw it away so I took the original sentiment off and added one of the new Lili of the Valley Quotable stamps. This is much better, I think if the sentiment is going to be the focus of a card then it needs to be a good size

The swirly and dotted bits round the edge are from their new Grungy Bits and Grungy Swirl sets as are the scrumptious little butterflies which are in 3 sizes

The lace, button twine and rolled paper roses are all from The Ribbon Girl

 

I used K&Co papers and Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles
