Lili of the Valley #93 - Easter

A thousand apologies for my very late posting, I do have a million excuses mainly for my flying visit to UK (Wednesday night and return on Friday night - last night) to bring our grandsons over for the Easter break. I still can´t get over how fabulous the weather and temperatures were there despite the heavy rainfalls in Spain but so pleased to report that the weather here is now glorious.

Anyhoo onto the challenge this week at Lili of the Valley which is EASTER - the perfect time to send your friends and family a special wee card to let them know you are thinking of them so come on in and share your creations with us.

I inked up Easter Bunny from the Spring Collection and coloured with my copics adding a wee bit of chalk, glaze to the eggs and cutting out with my nesties. Papers are Basic Gray and ribbon from stash.

Sorry this is so short and hopefully sweet but with a 4, 6 and 9 year old to care for I am sure you will understand if you too are a Grandma!

Lili of the Valley Challenge #91 - Peach & Green

Good morning folks, hope you are all well and enjoying warmer climates now that April is here. Thursday always brings us a fabulous new challenge from Lili of the Valley and this week we would love to see
Peach & Green

I have inked up one of Mollie Harrison´s fairies and she is called "Free", such a pity this is the first chance I have had to ink her up but rest assured you will be seeing her much more on my blog, can´t get over my obsession with fairies lol. I have coloured her with my copics and cut out with my nesties. She just cried out for the glamour dust treatment to her wings and being a lover of glitter how could I deny her this small pleasure! I adore the Clear Additions also from Lili of the Valley and this sentiment is one of my favourites.

Papers are a mixture of MME and PM, roses and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts .
