Star of Wonder ..... loving the new LOTV stamps!

 Well here I am again!!!!! I just had to post this cutie of a stamp this evening, I couldn't leave her until the morning. Just how much are you all loving the new christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley .... I really cannot choose a favourite and neither could all the fabulous crafters I met at the weekend ... one stamp is never enough is it!

 I have coloured the very pretty Star of Wonder with my copics and added lots of fabulous glamour dust (oooh it feels good to be covered in glitter again, lol). There are still a few of the christmas stamps available on the website but you will have to be quick because they have almost all sold out. Don't worry though if you miss out this time because more are on their way and stocks should be replenished again in the newxt week or so .

Here are a few challenges that I am entering ....

Crafty Creations - A Sketch 
Charisma Cardz - Pink
Cute Card Thursday - Get a head Start
Alphabet Challenge - Lace
Wild Orchid Crafts - Say it with Flowers

I love making christmas cards in non traditional colours, it means you can use your favourite colours all year round. I have added loads of bling again on my card - I just adore these rhinestones by Kaiser Crafts, can you tell????? Heidi has plenty of bling in stock here on the Simon Says Stamp website so make sure you check it out. More gorgeous blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts, I love these flowers. So many LOTV customers were asking about these flowers at the weekend that I expect there will be a mad rush onto their website this week .... you can't mistake quality and value for money can you! I have edged the roses with my most favourite stickles ..... Crystal .... this works so well along side the glamour dust.

Right, that is more than enough ramblings from me, I expect I have sent you all off into a deep sleep, lol. Back with more cards through the week - hope you have a good one! xxx
