Lili of the Valley

Good afternoon folks, sorry I am late uploading my card this week for Lili of the Valley.
Hubby had to go to hospital following a visit to his GP and was admitted, it sure has been a stressful few days but pleased that things are not as bad as first suspected.
I have just managed to gain access to my puter, we have had torrential rain and hours of thunderstorms since early morning unlike you all basking in wall to wall sunshine over in UK.

This fortnight´s challenge has been designed by our wonderful Bev and I really enjoyed using her fabulous

SKETCH



I would like to remind you that the fabulous Busy Bears Collection from Lili of the Valley will be released on the 21st April along with a new collection of 4 Cats and Dogs complete with really useful sentiments.


Don´t forget it is not necessary to use a Lili of the Valley image to join in, just follow the theme and have fun.

Materials:

Image: Boys - Football Crazy from Lili of the Valley
Ink: Copic Ciao
Paper: K & Co Hopscotch
Sentiment: See D
Ribbon: Smirk
Buttons and charm from stash
Challenges:
Crafty Angels - My Favourite Things - Copics
Creative Belli - Die Cut Shapes
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Stamptacular - Spots and Dots


We are really looking forward to our visit to UK this coming week to celebrate our youngest grandson´s christening a week tomorrow, fingers crossed our flight won´t be cancelled on Tuesday! It will be wonderful for us all to be together as a family, something which doesn´t happen often enough owing to distances and commitments. I hope the sun keeps shining for you all. -x-
