Bumblebee Fairy…



Hey everyone, did you have a good weekend?

I was really looking forward to chatting with some of my lovely blogging buddies on Saturday but I barely even got chance to say hello to most of you. We we SO unbelievably busy that we hardly drew breath from 10 until 4. I think everyone had a good day (despite having to queue for what seemed like 3 days to pay  …we were so sorry about that!) and we had some great feedback about the new products


It’s time for another Lovely Lili challenge at the Ribbon Girl and this month it’s an easy one…


You must include a LOTV stamped image or an image from an art pad, a LOTV sentiment or LOTV paper on your card or project and as always there are 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs


My card for the challenge is using one of the older Lili Valley fairies, she’s called Bumblebee Fairy


 04 May - Add Pearls


  04 May - Add Pearls 2



I coloured her with distress inks and then stamped another skirt and layered it with a piece of organza ribbon to give her a little lacey underskirt, it looks quite cute!

The papers are from LOTV, from the pretty Always and Forever pad and I used one of the handy Sentiment tags


The dies are Memory Box (puffy clouds) and Doohickey (border and heart tag) and a Dutch Doobadoo butterfly


The rest of the gorgeousness on my card is from the Ribbon Girl;

red seam binding, tulle, organza, flat back pearls, pearl string, stickles, cosmos daisies, tiny pink rosebuds, pink open rose, blossom flowers


Make sure you go to the blog for a peek at the fab inspiration from the design team, and you can find all the details for the challenge on there too




Hope you like my card, thanks for looking and taking the time to comment, I do love to read them all





PS. Rachel I’m so sorry I haven’t sent your candy yet, I had such a hectic week and it’s still sat here – I will post it tomorrow!
