Penguins - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
We've just come back from a few days in Abersoch in North Wales. A lovely relaxing time had by all, but no crafting done what so ever!! Lots of washing and ironing to do ready for the next trip!
Anyway, Lili of the Valley are back on the TV today at 12pm - with a gorgeous new Christmas launch. Being away on my hols means I didn't get the chance to make any cards for the promotion, so hopefully I'll be able to do some over the next few days. So, here is my one and only card so far using some very cute little penguins!



I've coloured them with promarkers and copics, cut them out and attached them with foam pads to give a bit of dimension. The die cut trees are Dee's Distinctively layered tree die, a Memory Box star die and a handwritten script sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley. The background paper is from my box of scraps but I think it might have been from The Works last year!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Passion for Markers - Dies or punches
ABC Christmas Challenge - N for New - (new stamps released today!)

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your comments and encouragement

Prickle all the Way

Hello Everyone, 
I can't believe I haven't been on blogger for 2 weeks. Emma's cricket has just been taking over, along with the school play - busy making props for the year 6 production of The Tempest!
I managed to get a couple of hours in my craft room this morning, and decided to make a Christmas card. I was hoping the thought of snow might cool me down a bit!
This gorgeous stamp id from Di's Digi Stamps and is called 'Prickle all the Way'.



I've coloured him with promarkers and copics, and the background papers are from Crafters Companion. These have some lovely silver foiling on them but it's not showing up great on the photo. I've used a Creative Expressions poinsettia die, a die namics picket fence die and a sentiment tag stamp from Lili of the Valley.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your comments and encouragement. Have a lovely weekend and I hope you all stay safe and cool in this heat.

Football Boy - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
I actually have a weekend with no cricket, other than going to watch and the odd net session! I thought I would have lots of time to do a bit of crafting. It's gone 11am already and all I have achieved is filling up the washing machine and switching it on! Crafting...mmm....no! 
This card is one of those that I kept picking up, doing 10 minutes, then another day, another 10 minutes so it took nearly a week to make. It's from the latest release at Lili of the Valley and is called Football Boy.


I've coloured him with copics and promarkers and again the background papers are from my box of scraps. I really need to try and use these up, they are taking over my desk! 
I've used a Memory Box puffy clouds die, a Lawn Fawn sunshine die, a Die-namics picket fence die and an embossed labels sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-


Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog, especially when I have been such a bad blogger lately.
Have a lovely weekend
