Shoes shoes shoes - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
I thought that when the school holidays arrived I would feel a little more chilled out and have a bit more time on my hands....wishful thinking!! Emma's cricket takes over everything - she has 3 games in 2 days this weekend! Oh well, if I'm sat on a cricket field - I can't do the housework!!

I have a card to share using a gorgeous digi stamp from Lili of the Valley. This is 'Shoes, shoes, shoes'.


I've coloured her with promarkers and the background papers are an old pad from Nit Wits. I've used a Die-naics blueprints 14 flower die and a Spellbinders scalloped border die. The sentiment tag stamps are from Lili of the Valley.

Little Snail - Lili of the Valley DT

Good morning everyone, 
It's a very exciting day for all you Lili of the Valley lovers out there. There are two live shows on The Craft Store (Hochanda), today at 9am and 1pm with the gorgeous Dawny P. 
The plan was to make lots of samples to take to the shows but unfortunately work and Emma's cricket got in the way. I did make a couple and this is one of them.
I've used a fabulous boys image called 'Little Snail'.


I decided to make a larger card today so this is an 8" square card.  I've coloured him with promarkers.  The background paper is a scenic piece of card from Kanban that has been sat in a drawer for years! I've used Memory Box cloud dies and a Creative expressions winter tree die that I cut from green card and added a little bit of extra colour with promarkers. I added a die-namics fence die and the plant and watering can are from a First Edition set. I used an x-cut punch for the flowers and added pearls to the centre. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley - embossed labels.

I'm at work today so my tape is set to record the live shows with Dawny.  I'm looking forward to sitting down with a G & T after Emma's cricket training and watching the shows.
