Morning all, thanks for all your lovely Birthday wishes, all my blogging buddies are so kind! A few of you have birthdays too so HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you all, I hope you had a fab time

I had a nice couple of days, the weather has really picked up and it feels like Spring is around the corner at last, I think the forecast for next week is good too

I’m hoping to get up in the attic today, I’ve spent so much time playing with the new Lili of the Valley wedding stamps (they are out tomorrow) this past few weeks that I’ve got behind with my DT cards. I have so many family birthdays in the Spring too and I’ve promised myself that I am going to make all my own cards this year. I hate buying them so I’ve had to get organised but so far so good!

I did intend to do the monthly Tim Holtz tags again this year but time just hasn’t allowed it. I enjoy doing those as it makes you do something a bit different that you wouldn’t normally. I think especially when you’re pushed for time you stick to what you know and it can get a bit samey!



Time for the new Lovely Lili challenge at the Ribbon Girl today and our theme this month is …


This should be an easy one for you as LOTV have so many cute animal images

I used one of the new art pads – this cutie is in the ‘bunnies’ pad


02 March - Animals



I used my favourite handwritten phrases set for the greeting and a little element from the grunge swirls set to add a bit of interest around the image

The papers are First Edition ‘Spring Drop’

All the other gorgeousness on the card is from, of course, the Ribbon Girl;

cosmos daisy


white broderie anglaise

mermaid sparkle ribbon

jute mesh ribbon

button twine




You can enter and find full details for the challenge on the Ribbon Girl challenge blog as well as some fab inspiration from the design team

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday  …whatever you’re doing x
