Candy and new LOTV…

Hello crafty friends, despite good intentions it’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. But, I have been busy and spent quite a lot of time crafting

As promised I have some 400 follower candy today…


..a few bits I gathered together for a little giveaway

I bought the pastels hoping they were water soluble after seeing a technique but they’re not, they weren’t expensive but someone might appreciate them. There is a stamp set, a flower die, some flowers and a bundle of ribbon. No sharing required, it’s just for my lovely followers so leave me a comment and I’ll draw a winner at random to get the goodies


LOTV have a new stamp launch, its the 2nd part of their 2017 Christmas range and there are some adorable images – most are available in rubber, digi and simply print so something for everyone

The challenge for September is a colour one, just make a card or project using this colour palette…

No automatic alt text available.

Remember you have to use a Lili of the Valley image, there are great prizes up for grabs as always and you can enter here

Lovely colours aren’t they, can be Christmassy but lots of other options

I chose to do a Christmas card, these 2 cuties are from the Woodland Scenes collection…

I used some MFT papers, love the bright colours. I can’t remember where I got the die but it’s green so I’m thinking it might be Lea’bilities


That’s it from me, it’s pouring down here today so my plans to do some gardening have been put on hold and I’m spending the afternoon crafting. I faff about so much though and end up doing nothing - time management is not my strong point!

Enjoy the weekend lovelies…

and make sure you leave me a comment to be in the candy draw
