Sneakie Peeking Back To My Old Style!!


Morning sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today xxx

I've got a sneaky peekie for you today of one of the brand new Lili of The Valley release which will be available from 6th April and there really is something for everyone on this release :) There's cute, there's flowers and there's even a bit of ooh la la!!Keep an eye on the DT blogs between now and then and you will be able to see the new stuff and choose your faves.

The image I used is called

It Takes Two

and it's part of the Jack, Patch and Puss images.
I think it's adorable - it caught my eye as soon as I saw the images and I just itched it colour it.

And now I have lol!!!


I used Copics and these are the colours -

Puss - E35, E39, Y15, Y17, Y38, YR04, YR07, YR16, YR20, YR68
Patch - E31, E33, E35, E39, E49, E50.
Cake - E35, E50, Y15, Y17

You'll get to meet Jack soon as I will be doing another sneak peek which features him :)

The papers are from the gorgeous Nitwits Hello Sunshine collection.



Why have one bow when you can have two!!!!

I used 15mm small check brown gingham, 15mm orange delight no 42 satin and a medium black polka dot button, all from The Ribbon Girl 




Good old Safmat again :)
I'd be lost without that stuff!!!



I am really pleased with how this turned out.
It's very much my old style before I got addicted to the embellies and all the edge inking malarky.

Will I go back there?

Who knows.
I think you just have to go with what you are feeling at the time, and some images will guide you the right way I think.

Before I dash off,  just a quickie to say that I am doing some more workshops over at LOTV on 6th April. We have Beginner's Stamping in the morning where we will cover stamping basics such as which inks to use, how to get a good crisp image etc etc so if you are new / newish to all this stamping stuff, or even if you are just looking to improve then is is the workshop for you. And then in the afternoon,we will have another colouring sesh.  Why not make a day of it and do both :) You'll have time to nip upstairs for a scone or some cake in between. And if you are coming over, you can get your mitts on the new stuff as well. Deets are on the website here.

Right I'm off.

The Crime Prevention bods are coming over so I need to do some work before they get here. Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

The stamp is wonderful and a must have for me. I will keep watching and snap it up when it comes out. As to the card, I love, love, love it.Sometimes the simple and sharp is such a a pleasure. This stamp lends itself to anyone's birthday, so we all need those cards that don't have all the frou-frou. One of my favorite of your cards. Really nice.
