Little Foxes - Lili of the Valley DT

Hello everyone, 
I'm back - already!! Two posts in a week...can't remember the last time I did that! I have a card to share using two of the cute little foxes from the latest Autumn release from Lili of the Valley. 


I've coloured them with promarkers and copics and the background papers are from a very old pad where the top page is missing, so I have no idea where they're from! I've used a Hunkydory Moonstone Fabulous Flowers die, a Die-namics picket fence die and toadstool dies from Tattered Lace. The sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

Well cricket season has finished, so hopefully, I'll get a bit more crafty time over the next few weeks. Last Sunday, Emma had her presentation night for the local village team she plays for. I'm so proud of her, she won the U15 batting award, the U15 bowling award and the Clubs Junior player of the Year award! All her hard work paid off. Winter nets starts soon, so I'll have to make the most of the next few weeks!

Elbow Grease - Lili of the Valley DT

Hello everyone, 
I was hoping to get some crafty time during the school holidays, but it's not  happening! The day after we got back from our holiday to Wales, we had to take Emma to a 4 day cricket festival in Malvern. She had an amazing time playing against Ireland and Kent. We had a lovely time watching all the cricket too - the college is set in beautiful grounds and the weather was gorgeous. Since then, she's played in Durham, Scarborough, Bradford, basically cricket has hijacked my holidays, (I've had 3 days at home in 3 weeks!) not only is she playing for numerous teams, she has now decided to start coaching and is helping out with the Under 11's.
Inbetween all the cricket it was my Dad's birthday last Thursday and I very quickly cobbled together a card for him. I've used a brilliant stamp from Lili of the Valley. This is Elbow Grease.


I've coloured him with promarkers and copics. The background papers are from Make & Create. I've used a cog die from Joy!crafts and added card candy in the centre. I found a piece of hessian to add texture and used a computer generated sentiment.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

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!

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.

Good Morning Everyone,

Saucer Magnolia

Good Morning everyone, 
My Mum was 80 last Thursday so I can now share the card I made for her. She loves magnolia flowers so I used this gorgeous image from Power Poppy - Saucer Magnolia.


I've coloured them with copics and promarkers. The background papers are from Make & Create. I've used a Hunkydory Moonstone flower die, a Honey Bee Burlap background die and a Spellbinders Grand decorative circle die. The sentiment is computer generated.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-

We Love Stamping - Favourite Stamps : I've used the stamp a few times now, it's so pretty and perfect when you don't want to do 'cute'.

Emma had a break from her cricket over the winter (lots of horrible things happened last year) and we weren't sure that she would go back to it, but last week, she decided she would! That means, training is back on, games are back on and she has a bit of 'catching up' to do. My crafty time is diminishing rapidly!! 
I promise I will try and get round to visiting you all this week.  For now, I have to go and clean the house as my out-laws are arriving to help celebrate my Mum's birthday!
