Thank You

Please scroll down for the Flutterby Wednesday Blog Hop.

Good morning and welcome to our 1st challenge of 2010. I have some exciting news for you today, Lili of the Valley will be releasing their Spring Stamp Collection towards the end of January and we will let you know the date as soon as it has been settled.

The DT have been lucky enough to receive the new images and boy are you going to love them!!!!, so during the next couple of weeks we will be showing some sneak peeks on our blogs, keep your eyes open. The new collection include Babys, Wedding, Bunnys, Bears and Little Children.

I would like to welcome the uber talented Ria who is Guest Designing for us over the next 4 challenges and hope you will stop by her fabulous blog and leave her some love.

Anyhoo onto our 1st challenge at Lili of the Valley !!! I am sure you all got lots of present for Christmas so this week we are asking you to create


Remember you do not have to use LOTV products and we are happy for you to combine challenges.

For my card I have used Fairies - On Tiptoe and coloured her with Copics, chalking the background and adding my beloved glamour dust to her wings. Papers are Wisteria, sentiment is See D, retro punch and more glamour dust, glittered brads are from Papermania and gems are from my stash. Ooh and of coarse my nesties.
I am combing my card with
Allsorts - I have followed their fab sketch and also used up some of my old stash ( papers, gems, brads etc).
Creative Belli - Glitter or Rhinestones
Penny´s Paper Craft - Chalks.
