Lili of the Valley #86 and another Sneak Peek

Good morning folks, can´t believe it is Thursday once again - where does the time go? We have another wonderful challenge for you at Lili of the Valley and this week it is a Sketch by our very own Bev.




I have inked up Toadstool for Two which will be available next week. The new Animals Release are gorgeous so don´t forget to check out the Lili of the Valley website on the 9th March to avoid disappointment cos these wee beauties are gonna fly off the shelves for sure. You will also find lots of beautiful creations from the DT using the new releases on the Ideas to Inspire Blog.

I adore this image as it´s so versatile, perfect for anniversaries, engagement, Easter etc. I have coloured with my copics and prismas adding touches of flowersoft and glamour dust. I would be lost without my nesties but decided to use up some old craft stash that has laid about for years. At one point in my crafting I couldn´t live without my peel offs, bet I wasn´t the only one lol, rub on´s were another thing I used a lot before I started stamping and I even pulled out an old punch which hasn´t seen the light of day for I don´t know how long. Papers are BG Urban Prairie, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from stash.
