Verrry Un-Piggy Like …..



… I know, but I just had to use red and black for this card. This might sound weird but I had a red top on at the time and maybe there was a kind of subliminal thing going on!!

But I do kind of  like it, even though I have to admit that I do usually reach for the pastels when I am colouring in these gorgeous images.

Patent leather shoes and shiny tea set are both courtesy of Glossy Accents btw :)

Anyhoos, enough waffle cos it’s time for another fairy-tastic challenge with the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge girlies which this is week is  ……


one of me sketches.

We have not one but THREE new DT girlies, a fab prize courtesy of the always wonderful Paul and Siri from Wild Orchid Crafts and lots of wonderful cardage to share with you, so if you get a sec, do nip over and check it all out lovely peeps.

Don;t forget that to qualify for the prize, you have to use  a Lili of the Valley Stamp  or Diecut Image on your creation. There’s over 150 images to choose from, plus there are some new Designer Die Cuts available now, all stunningly coloured. There’s 9 on each sheet and they’re £1.10 each or 10 for £10 which I think is brilliant value.

I’m going to do the shopping list and Copics colours at the end again so I’ll see you in a sec when you’ve seen the pics :)

So that’s what I did, and now I’m off to do some work. I was out for most the day yesterday so there’s a double dose to catch up on today – grrrrr!!!! Have the fabbiest day peeps and I’ll see you tomorrow with a little helping of Tilda.
