Lili of the Valley - A Sketch .... and another sneak peek

HI there, Thursday already and my week off is flying! We had a hair brain idea to redecorate the hall and landing so guess what I am doing .... yep, sanding and painting all the woodwork (including the spindle bannister ... groan). Never mind, it will look great once it is papered and finished. We have even knocked out a false ceiling the old owners had put in so it is much better ... or will be when it is not looking like a building site.

It is a good job I have my crafting to keep me sane. It is another challenge from us here at Lili of the Valley and we have a great sketch by the lovely Bev for you all to follow. Now I don't have anything to cut large circles but did you know that the lid off Carte D'or ice cream is perfect for the curve on this sketch .... see, ice cream really is good for your curves hahaha.

This cute stamp is from the new set which will be released next week (9th March) and these little cute bunnies are proving a big hit with the DT. Remeber to pop over to the challenge blog to see the DT's cards but also pop over to our inspirations blog for even more sneak peeks! You know when you buy papers cos you like them but aren't sure when you will use them .... well that is just the case with these, but when I saw that toadstool I knew these papers would fit the bill!! I also found a sweet little charm too ..... it is ages since I used any of these!
