Lili of the Valley and a Sneak Peek

Good morning peeps, ooh it is a bit chilly here in good ole UK, even our grandsons commented whilst leaving for school this morning. We had a good flight over last night and arrived on time.


We have a fabulous theme for you this week at Lili of the Valley - ANIMAL ANTICS and would love to see your interpretation of this.


I have used "dad´s the word" which will be released on the 11th May and this is one release you will not want to miss. I have coloured with copics, cut out with my nesties, papers are from Papermania and ribbon from stash.


Challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch plus One for the Boys
The Crazy Challenge - Cards for Men




My grandson Josh loves to spend time in my craftroom colouring along with me and I think he has done pretty well considering he is only 9 years old. He has made this card for his parents anniversary bless him, mind you that is not until September!




Josh has inked up Lucky Cats and coloured with prisma pencils and chalks. Both his sentiment stamp and mine are from the Clear Stamps range from LOTV. Papers are K&Co, ribbon is SU and flowers from WOC.


Challenges:

Crafty Creations - Anniversary
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sunday Sketch & Stamp - Sketch




Back to the sunshine tomorrow, another flying visit!
