Lili of the Valley - Icy Angel

Good morning folks, hope you are all well and not feeling the cold too much. It is a beautiful sunny morning here and to be honest it has been very mild which has been a blessing after almost 18 years in Spain, bet we will feel it soon though!
A fabulous new challenge has started today at Lili of the Valley so I do hope you will join us with

A Christmas Card For Someone Special

Remember you must use a Lili of the Valley image to be in the Prize Draw.

I have inked up Icy Angel, one of the latest images released at Lili of the Valley, and coloured her with copics then cut her out with my nesties. Any excuse to play with my beloved glamour dust, I just love this stuff for that added sparkle. Flowers are made up with Xcut and Woodware punches and topped with pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. Papers are DCWV, Winter Wishes sentiment comes free with this stamp and ribbon from stash.

All Our Dreams

Here is another of the fabulous stamps which was released yesterday and is available online at Lili of the Valley, this wee cutie is called "All our Dreams" and the sentiment is included free.

A side view, funny how colours change with angle of light or perhaps my lack of photography skills.

A wee close up of the free sentiment, image and flowers.

I love this sentiment, sooo true!

I have coloured this adorable image with copics, highlighted the spots with liquid pearls and cut out with my nesties.

Flowers are available from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been glittered with stickles, lace from my stash.

All OUR dreams came true on 2/11/11 with the birth of Jessica, our very 1st granddaughter born at 23.36 and weighing 6lbs 12.5oz. She is so beautiful and looks like her brother Daniel, we can´t wait to see her in the flesh and get loads of cuddle time which unfortunately is on hold until both hubby and I are on the mend.

Isn´t she a wee darling!

Lili of the Valley - Bright and Sparkly

Good morning peeps,sorry I'm a day late sharing my card but hubby has been pretty poorly.I have nothing but praise for the NHS and still can't believe a rapid response doctor was here within 3 minutes. Help sure is at hand when most needed.

Anyhoo onto this week's challenge at Lili of the Valley which is Bright and Sparkly, just up my street cos I simply love glitter.

This is a sneak peek for Lili of the Valley and this wee beauty is called Summer - Garden Angel and the sentiment comes with her too. She will be available online from 10th November along with another 27 gorgeous images but you can get your inky mitts on them if you are lucky enough to be visiting the NEC. Be sure to visit LOTV´S Ideas to Inspire blog to view the new releases created by my teamies.
I have coloured with copics and used lashings of glamour dust, ooh I just love the stuff! Papers are MME Bloom & Grow, flowers from WOC and Prima, couldn´t make a card without my nesties and just love my MS punches.


Great sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp
