In The Pink With Lovely Lili :)


Morning sweet peeps and a very happy Sunday to all xx

It's all verry exiting cos over at the Ribbon Girl Blog, there is a brand new challenge and this one is right up my stra├če cos it combines 2 of my faves ever - The Ribbon Girl and Lili of The Valley.

So a huge welcome to The Lovely Lili Challenge

To kick  things off, out first theme is

Anything Goes

and all you have to do  is make a card or project that include a LOTV image or sentiment stamp or a pre-coloured Artpad image

For our randomly chosen lucky winner we have:

A LOTV stamp of your choice

and a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl

Marvellous :)

So what did I do then?

Well .....


.. this bad boy here (or rather this bad girl!!!!).

(btw, if you came over from the challenge then you will see that I have redone the pic because the light was not at all good when I tried to do this yesterday - these are much better).

I decided to use one of  the LOTV Art Pads and this one is Babies (sooo adorable).

The papers are from an Always & Forever 8x8 paper pad and I added a bit of 'Martha Stewart' for good measure.

I also added some fabulous Ribbon Girl goodies which you can see .....


... here.

pink/fuschia saddlestitch ribbon

Kort and Godt white chrysanths and pink rolled roses

pretty pink blossom flowers

white beaded stamens

sugar and spice pearls

Beautimous :)


Inking edges and adding faux stitching - like ya do!!



So that's the old card done.

But before I go, I must just say a mahoosive thank you to the lovely ladies who came over to the Lili of The Valley shop yesterday for our Christmas workshop. We had a fabulous day and they didn't want to go home. Neither did I really and I could have stayed there all night crafting!!

We had a fab time and it was a pleasure spending the day with you me darlins xxx

See, they are all in one piece - I was very gentle with them lol!!

The last Christmas workshop is fully booked but we do have a few places left on the Open Day workshop on 30th November (the deets are here) so if you want to nab yourself a place I'd love to see you there :)

Right I better get off and get on!!!

I am in the middle of the prep for the next C&C outing and I am in the crafty zone at the mo - woohoooo thank you Mr Mojo!!

Take care and I'll see you soon as soon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and lots of love and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

What a great day you had Dawny I just wanted to pop over and say good luck for tomorrow on will rock! Hugs x

Di said...

Fabulous Dawny! And I adore the star garland you made too.

I read that you're on C & C for LOTV - no need to worry, you'll be fine! Be yourself and everyone will love you. Plus, right at that time I'll be in a Jumbo jet flying home from Thailand - 10 times more scared than you if that helps :)

I won my very first blog candy from you a few years back and have never forgotten the total thrill it gave me!

Hugs, Di xx
