Autumn Lili + Something Brand New :)




Hi peeps and hope that all is well xxx

Today over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge our theme is Autumn so we want to see those lovely rich Autumnal colours included and there is a £10 voucher up for grabs for one lucky girlie to spend in the LOTV shop :)

So I used this gorgeous  LOTV Glamorous Gardening image and gave her a bit of Copics and Glamour Dust TLC. (you can get your mitts on a whole heap of Copic-ness from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

I used a mixture of Wild Orchid Crafts blooms and a teeny tiny button to break up the colour.

And talking of which, the something new in the title of the post is one of the blooms cos look what’s just arrived at Wild Orchid Crafts …..


…. these fabulous new poppies that are now on sale.

I used the white ones here but I have a feeling that you might be seeing the red ones on here soon if not sooner :)

The papers are both from the fabbydoodles  Pink Petticoat - Lots Of Dots and Gingham (I used gold and tangerine colours)

… and one last angly dangly one and that’s me card done.

Before I disappear off to climb the mountain of paper that got bigger cos we have had techie probs at work and I wasn't able to do much this week, I have a quick question which I  am hoping that somebody might be able to help me with.

Does anybody know where I can get some expandable envelopes that fit 6 x 6 or slightly smaller cards please chicks

Thanks ever so if you are able to help me with that little query.

Have a fad day and see you manana with something Tilda-ish. Hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny, yet another lovely for your enverlopes you can very very easily make your own using the crafters companion score board thingeee. by using 2 scored lines a few mils apart it gives you a little more room,and its a very handy gagdet for making boxes ( which are sooooooooo easy a monkey or piggy could do it!!)and lots of other folds its called the ultimate pro ...
Hope this helps

love from Judith

Hi Dawn,
I buy the rectangular envelopes.
I cut it a inch longer then the envelope should be, on the bottomside. Then scor it a inch from the bottom and chop the corners with a cornerrounder punch.
Fold it and cut one side off with a scissor and glue the other side unto your envelope. hope it works for you.
