Lili of the Valley challenge - you can now buy the new stamps!

Good morning everyone and woohoo it is a super exciting day for us all at Lili of the Valley .... yes at last - you can get your hands on the brand new stamps. They will be launched today at the NEC in Birmingham so if you are heading there today make sure you pop in and grab your stamps before they sell out! They will then be available to buy online from November 11th.

We have a wonderful challenge for you all this week on the LOTV challenge blog ....

3 Papers, 2 stamps (1 can be a sentiment) and 1 embellishment

I have used the beautiful fairy tip toes - what a pretty fairy she is. I was very lucky with this card because I usually choose my papers first and then colour my image to match. This time though I was sat colouring with which ever colours I fancied and then thought oh no... do I have anything that matches!! Good old Basic Grey to the rescue - I cannot believe it matches perfectly - that was a lucky escape, lol. My gorgeous new Martha Stewart loop punch arrived this week from Tracy at Dies to Die For and is my new favourite (yes, even more than the doily punch and that is saying something).

My sentiment is by LOTV too and they have some really fab ones - I need to use the much more. I have chosen flowers as my one embellishment - you know I just love my flowers. I have followed a sketch but will pop the details on after work because I am running late as usual ..... have a fab day! xxx
Alphabet challenge - C is for circles
My time to craft - Scallops
Flutterby Wednesday - challenge #82
Can't seem to find the sketch I followed but I am sure I will find it eventually - think I need to write things down, lol x
