What A Sneakie Peekie Lovely Pair :)



Hi there possums and hope you are all OK today :)

I'm sharing the card that I did for yesterday's challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is

Die-ing For A Punch

and all we want to see is, well, dies and punches and either / or is fine.

So I thought I'd combine the challenge with another sneakie peekie from the soon to be released Lili of the Valley Christmas images - you will be able to get these tomorrow and we do hope that you enjoyed the blog hop yesterday (there may still be time to enter if you're quick). 

So ...


.. here's my card and I used

Festive Post

I have to apologise again for these pics.
My camera is majorly playing up and I think it's time to bin it - it keeps putting a shadow on the pics that isn't there IRL, grrrr!!!

Anyway I coloured the images in these Copics -

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E31, E35, E50, E98, E99
The rest - BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV13, C00, C1, C2, C3,  C4, C7, E30, W41, E42, E43, E50, G99, YG00, YG03, YG95

I used papers from 2 of the 8x8 paper pads - Frosty Christmas and Promises. I think the blues and lilacs work really well together, especially for cold and frosty Christmas cards :)


I do quite like using dies etc in ways that are a bit different and this Magnolia fence die is great for bending!! I also got the old ribbler out - it's pretty ancient but it still does the trick. You can't really see the corrugated effect in the main pic cos of the light but it shows up better here.

The sentiment is from the LOTV sentiments to fit scroll set but they look fab on their own as well - I just love that font, and the words are perfect to go with this image :)



A pretty double bow made from mauve lilac seam binding and topped off with three silver jingle bells - they are the jingliest jangliest bells ever, and of course both of these are from The Ribbon Girl

You can just about see 2  white holly leaves (it's called artistic licence I think lol) tucked behind the bow and I punched them using one of the best holly punches about - the Super Duper Holly Punch which I got from Janice at Sir Stampalot.




So there we are all done and if you want to take part in the blog hop, you can see it all right here.

I hope you've enjoyed the sneak peeks and that you've picked your faves - I still haven't to be honest cos I like them all!!!

Enjoy the rest of your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

I always love the layouts you use on your cards Dawny, they are so well put together and the finishing touches are brilliant. Love the colours on this and those bells look fab against that lush ribbon

Such a cute stamp. Love the two kids (I have twin grandbabies, girl and boy, just turned 2) so it has extra appeal to me.
