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.

Craft Your Days Away - Embellishment Bingo - Pearls, Flowers and Ribbon
Delightful - Bingo - Pattern Paper, Punches/Diecuts and Flowers
My Time to Craft - Take Two - Flowers

Awww - love this little angel Nicola - the colouring is beautiful. Glamour Dust is fab. isn't it - what would we do without it!
Today is sunny and bright here too - a pleasant change from all the dark misty weather we've been having lately. Hope you are still enjoying life back in the UK, and hope you've been well enough to visit your beautiful new Granddaughter.
Hugs, Sylvia xx
