So what did I do then?

It’s this very chap here.

I used one of the brand new, only just released Lili of The Valley images and this one is called

Love Balloon

Isn’t it a little poppet :)

I got the old Copics back out seeing as they were sulking at being ignored for so long and these are the colours I used -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E13, E21
Hair- E31, E33, E35, E39, E50
Clothes etc - E31, E33, E35, E39, E50, E81, E99, G99, R00, R02, R05, R17, R27, R59, YG0000, YG00, YG03

The papers are all from the fabulous Nitwits FQB - Crab Apple Lane Collection and I can share that they are soon going to be available from Lili of The Valley as a 8x8 paper pack.

And do you see the little stitching detail around the paper?
Well that is also going to be available from LOTV as a stamp set as well -  perfect for when you can’t be bothered to get your sewing machine out :)

Some yummies from The Ribbon Girl.

The bow is made from 38mm Ivory Silky Crush ribbon, topped with a Red Small Polka Dot Spotty Button and some natural button twine. I also added a couple of  Heart Pins.
