Mini snowman no 6 - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
There's not much crafting going on here again...cricket has taken over this week. Emma was playing at Durham on Monday, Northumberland on Wednesday and Scarborough on Thursday, Friday and today! She's on a 3 day County Cricket residential in Scarborough, playing Lancashire and Derbyshire so we have driven over to watch the games. They are on a lovely site with the cricket pitch overlooking the sea.

Anyway, I have another little snowman to share today. This is the sixth one from the set 9 snowmen that are now available from Lili of the Valley.



I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition. I've used a Spellbinders snowflake die, and a sentiment stamp from the new release. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Mini Snowman - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
My blog has been really quiet again! We've just got back from a gorgeous week in North Wales. My SIL has a holiday home in Abersoch so we are lucky enough to be able to use it every summer. The weather was a bit hit and miss but we managed to keep busy. We had a lovely day out at Harlech, visiting the castle and rock pooling on the beach, and another afternoon watching a medieval falconry display within the grounds of Criccieth Castle. The only downside was the 6 hour drive home (should be 3 1/2) due to roadworks and heavy traffic!

Anyway onto my card. I have a very sweet little snowman to share today. He is just one of a set of 9 snowmen that will be released from Lili of the Valley later this month.


I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition. I've used snowflake dies from Spellbinders, Marianne Creatables and Sweet Dixie. The sentiment is also due to be released at the end of the month. There will be Hand drawn sentiments, tags and toppers.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas  - Anything Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Add a diecut
Creative Inspirations - Seasonal
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper  - August Challenge

Due to the rain, a lot of Emma's cricket has been rescheduled! So this week we have 3 different matches all over the place, starting with a match against Staffordshire in Wolverhamptom! I think we might have to travel the night before!

Garden Visit - PBSC

Hello Everyone, 
It's the first Saturday of the month and that means that it's time for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge! Our theme this month is ....


ANYTHING GOES
(Option : 'water')

I have used a very cute Penny Black stamp called 'Garden Visit' for today's card. I know I have one or two Penny Black stamps with a water theme, but I couldn't find them so getting very little time in my craft room, I decided to just use the first one out of the box....



I've coloured him with promarkers. The background papers are from Nit Wits and the sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley. I've used  a creative expressions flower die and a Die namics picket fence die.

Our sponsor this month is 1-2-3 stitch with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner.

I've coloured him with promarkers and fussy cut him out. The background paper is from Little Claire's and I've used a Dees Distinctevly Die - Christmas Tree Stacker.  The sentiment stamp is also from Lili of the Valley.
