Lovely Lili challenge …




Hey everyone, I’m back, hope you’re all well!

We had a lovely long weekend in London, went to some museums and did some shopping …saw a couple of shows …generally ate and drank far too much  …and certainly spent far too much (we could have had a week abroad for what we spent!)

I twisted my knee which slowed me down a bit for the last day so now I’m trying to rest it, I think it was just all that walking my poor joints are not used to it!


I missed the announcement of the exciting news over at The Ribbon Girl last weekend so here’s my little midweek newsflash!!

I’m thrilled to be on the DT for Mary and Andrea’s Lovely Lili monthly challenge


To kick off the new challenge we want to see your 'Anything Goes' projects that include a LOTV image or sentiment stamp or a pre-coloured Artpad image

There are some fab prizes up for grabs and the challenge will close at 9pm UK time on Saturday so still plenty of time to enter


I used one of the new art pads for my card…


October - Brown 2



This little cutie is in pad 7 Just For Girls and the brown colours went perfectly with the gorgeous ribbons and lace which are of course from The Ribbon Girl

Here’s a list of everything I used;

K&Co papers

Handwritten Phrases

Petaloo flowers and leaves

Marianne dies – stitched circle and border

Liquid Pearls, Stickles, Flatback Pearls (chocolate and peaches & cream) Organza ribbon, Silk ribbon and Chocolate beaded tulle lace – all from The Ribbon Girl




I’ll have my papertake weekly card tomorrow so if you get the chance then do stop by
