Lili, Lilac & Lemon


Picture 003 copy Hi peeps and it’s another grey and wet day here in Chester.

Now what happened to summer?????

But it’s all nice and sunny over at Papertake Weekly and although it’s sketch time again, there is a bit of a twist this week.

So firstly, here ….

sketch #42

… is the sketch. Typical Dawny one this, very plain and hopefully lots of room for scope.

But the twist is that there is an optional extra to use lilac and lemon to sort of go with this week’s sponsor, Lilac Lemon Designs who do the most gorgeous art nouveau images

Picture 002 copy

So as it is such a pretty colour combi, I went with that and this is what I did. Unlike me I know, but I didn’t faff about with the sketch this time. I used it as it was – straight from the tin so to speak lol xxx

The image which I think is so sweet, is another one of the new releases from Lili Of The Valley – this one’s Mirror Mirror. It reminds me so much of Kyla because she just loves dressing up. I coloured her with the following Copics -

B60, BV0000, BV00, BV02, BV03, C00, C3, E00, E11, E21, E50, R11, Y02



The papers are Pink Petticoat’s  Little Check and Lots Of Dots and the blooms are of course Wild Orchid Crafts.


The border punch is Martha Stewart one but for the life of me I cannot remember what it is called. If anyone knows could they put this decrepit old girl out of her misery please and let me know please pretty please xxx

So that’s me done for today lovely peeps.

I have the most awful migraine so I’m going to go and lie down in a darkened room!!! I wonder if we are in for a storm because it is one of them there sickly headache things and looking at the ‘puter screen is not really helping, so please excuse the ‘shortie’ today.

Have a fab day and I’ll see you soon if not sooner.

Huggiest of hugs xxx

I love looking at your cards each day...always so pretty. This new one is no different and inspirational as ever. If you ever get fed up with your stash of LOTV stamps can I be at the top of your "find a new home for stamps" list? lol Hope you feel better soon! XX

This card is sooo sweet, my type of card. I have just ordered from LOTV and am waiting for the postman to arrive.
Thanks for sharing and I am looking forward to your next creation.

I think the MS punch is called 'Embossed Scallop'.
Hope you feel better soon.
