Lili of the Valley and a Sneak Peek

I am really enjoying these cooler temperatures in UK, had both plenty rain and sunshine so a perfect combination.

This week at Lili of the Valley our theme is
Four Seasons – we would like to see cards that reflect, Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter

Lili of the Valley are offering a £10 voucher to be spend on the website this week, what a great chance to get your hands on the new images.

I have inked up James the Bear - Christmas Cracker and coloured him with copics and prismas, adding the necessary glamour dust for that wee bit of sparkle. Mounted him on a nestie added a few gems and the double corner dies are by Double Do.



Sentiment is from See D.



I really enjoyed doing a bit of paper`embroidery which I find so therapeutic.

Challenges:

 Crafty Catz - Animals
 Stampavie and more - Christmas in Summer
 The Pixie Cottage - Sketch and/or A Fancy Fold
