Lemon Lili (And A Bit Of Pink As Well!!)

image1

Morning lovely peeps and I hope you are all well today :)

It’s the most gorgeous morning here in Chester – like a hazy summer’s morning really – and I hope that it’s the same where you are.

Well it’s time for another Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge and we have a fab sketch this week from the one and only Bev …..

lotv2_thumb[2][1] … I loved using this one, thanks chick xxx.

And the DT have as always created some gorgeous work to share so nip over and have a mooch if you get a sec. Also, don’t forget that you don't need to use a LOTV image if you want to play along as well.

ed So here’s what I did.

I don't often use lemon and pink together but it’s such a lovely combi. The prob for me is getting the lemon to look nice on the pics. This looks a bit ‘arsh but IRL it’s much softer.

The image I used is On The Garden Wall and it is just so sweet I think, and you can find it here. I don’t know if you can see but I used a bit of Glossy accents on his specs (I am using that stuff quite a bit of late but it does add a little something I think).

And of course I did the Copics thing (you can get them from Tracy at Dies to Die For; they are ever so fab aren’t they).

Picture 003 copy I’ve have these papers for years and years – literally. They are Making Memories and that’s about all I can tell you, sorry. The beautiful blooms are of course from Paul and Siri over at Wild Orchid Crafts and I added some punched leaves and a little pearly beadie thing which I had in my ‘wedding invite bits and bobs’ box.

edit

Here’s a couple more and a bit of Martha’s finest as well which Tracy at Dies To Die For can sort you out with :)

Picture 005 copy And that is that for today.

Just to remind you that the fabulous LOTV Busy Bears Collection will be released on the 21st April – I bet you will glad to hear cos they are awesome images and SO easy to colour.

And at the same time as the Busy Bear release, LOTV are releasing a new collection of 4 Cute Cats and Dogs complete with really useful sentiments. This collection costs £14.99 and I’ve seen it and I can tell you that this is bargainous value. There will be some sneak peeks from the DT this week so keep your eyes open for them peeps :)

We went out on our bikes AGAIN last night – we are turning into seasoned bike bods for sure. The good news is that without even trying, I have lost 3lbs this week. I could not believe it. So to celebrate that fact, tonight we are cycling to a pub near us and having some grub and then cycling home again. No doubt the weight loss will be down to 1lb after that but never mind – it’s a start!!

So that’s me done for today.

I’ll see you tomorra for a special JM Challenge cos it’s our birthday but until them, have a fab day and enjoy the sunshine.

Hugs to all xxx

Love, love, and really love this card!! If you haven't noticed, I'm like stalking your blog. I just love your coloring and combinations, and I just had to order Bearly Mines papers. Love them!!

I have been trying to figure out what Copic colors you used on Lili where she is on the wall. (DUH, I'm writing a comment after it). Getting old...sorry. LOL That hat of hers is absolutely gorgeous and love the yellow combination.

Thanks for sharing with us!!
