Sparkly & Oh So Cute :)



Hi peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

It’s that time of the week when we head over to the  Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge and this week we have a fabby Bev sketch for you -


- and here it is :)

I LOVED this sketch and will use it again I’m sure :)

And this is what I did with it.

The image is one of the new Lili Of The Valley releases that will be on sale if you are going to the NEC next week and if you’re  not then you can nab them from the website from 12th. These are just the cutest lot yet IMHO and if you have a mooch around the DT blogs, you can see the other new designs.

I coloured this sweetie with Copics,  which you can get from the loveliness that is Tracy over at Dies To Die For, in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes:  BV0000, BV00, BV12, RV0000

And of course I went a bit mad with the old Glamour Dust as well – I always do :)

As well as the new images, there is also a new release of circular sentiment stamps as well and these are available as per the images.

Aren't they fabulous :)

The blooms are of course from  Wild Orchid Crafts – and they’re fabulous too :)

The gorge papers are of course from Pink Petticoat and there’s the good old MS Doily punch thrown in as well.  You can just about see one of the WOC  self adhesive pearls on there as well.

That frosty lilac colour is so pretty.

So that’s my card for today’s challenge.


Well I must apologise to all over at the  Simon Says Challenge because I did my card, scheduled it and it didn't appear. I usually check my blog to see if it has cos I am not good at doing this, but for reasons beyond my control ie stupid techie probs with my mouse, having to take my dearest to work cos his car was being ‘cam shafted’ to within an  inch of it’s life and then getting stuck in traffic due to a crash on the way home and then getting meself into a foul strop, I forgot!!!

So anyway I’ve re-done it  now.

So this is my second week as GDT and our challenge is

Punch ‘Em

which is probably what they wanted to do to me after a) using the wrong image last week - doh, and b) this weeks latest bloomer!!!

Apart from using punches and die cuts, as per the challenge, we all used Hero Arts products on our cards and Heidi and the good peeps at Simon Says Stamp have loads of goodies which you can get your mitts on.

And you can check out the new Hero Arts Holiday 2010 deliciousness right here :)

I decided to do a little paper piecing on this card and the only thing I coloured was the crown with a gold pen. The papers are both Pink Petticoat and I used kraft card and Gingham. Don’t you just love kraft card with red, black and white!!!!

I did the sentiment on the ‘puter because it’s for someone very close to my heart who is indeed a top bird and she’s also  a bit good with these Hero Art proddies but I can’t tell you who it is just yet …..

So that’s me finally done peeps.

It was a looooooooooooooong post today in terms of pics so I kept the waffle quite short, you’ll be glad to hear!!! . I’ll be back tomoz with something Magnolia-licious so I’ll see you then.

Have a fab day and hugs to all xxx

Hey Dawny
WOW! I love that cute gingham bird... Beautifully done! Yes, Kraft card with red is the best! It's obviously the in thing as I have been cutting up brown paper carrier bags to use. Found some Kraft paper in Paperchase and one sheet of card left in my local craft Supplier...
Inspiring always!
