… these new Lili Of The Valley Cute Squares are.
I got me some just out of curiosity to be honest but I tell you peeps, they are awesome. They cost £2 and you get 20 in each pack – 5 each of 4 different designs so they work out at 10p each and for making loads of Chrimbly cards, they are such good value and fantastic quality cos the 300gsm card is nice and sturdy. And they’re fabulous if you like a bit of the old decoupage :)
I know they are what I am going to be using this year for sure!!!
You can see all the different cute squares here and I used ‘Bringing Gifts’ which is from the ‘Christmas Is Coming’ pack - ohh it sure is!!!
And I used it for this weeks Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge which is based on a Bev - alicious sketch ….
… and here it is.
And this is my interpretation of it.
I love the all the detail. I think his little cap really does looks ‘tweedy’.
As always, I’ve added a little something sparkly to highlight bits of the image, which you can just about see in this pic.
The papers are mostly Pink Petticoat (natch) – I used Stripes and Gingham in ‘smoke’, and the red spotty one was just lurking in my craft room. I decided to use that one as it matched the red on image perfectly. But I have no clues where it was from or what it is, sorry lovely peeps :(
The text is one of the sentiment ribbons from Pink Petticoat – I am sooo loving these at the mo.
The bow is a mixture of red organza ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts (as are the self adhesive pearls), and the red spotty satin jobby was from Hobbycraft.
Do you know, I actually went in there the other day and they had everything on my list that I wanted. Yes, I know it’s hard to believe cos there’s usually something that is out of stock!!!!
Wonders will never cease!!!!!
The holly leaves are also from Wild Orchid Crafts and I just added a stash button to make a berry.
So there’s me card all done.
Well I am still snotty and sniffly (aren’t you just soooo glad that I shared that with you – not!!!) and I think I have a bit of a chest infection as well now so all in all I am still not 100%.
But we are getting there and thank God Ricky Ricardo hasn’t caught it – yet!! I don’t think I could cope with another man flu episode (but he did have a flu cap the other night, just in case, bless him!!! ) And as the main culprit ie her ladyship is in residence on Friday, I hope it stays that way as well.
So on that note, I’m off. I’ll see you in the morrow with something a little Magnolia-ish.
But till then, have a great day peeps and hugs to all xxx
