Lili of the Valley Thomas

Another fab image from Lili of the Valley - Thomas, he has been coloured with Promarkers with lots of sparkly champagne bubbles!

I am really enjoying these circular easel cards, they are so quick and simple to make, which is always good as I am still trying to get going with my christmas cards! 

We have had a lovely start to the week weatherwise so I made the most of it today and managed to get lots of itty-bitty jobs done in the garden.  The forecast is for cooler days and rain so it was good to get those jobs out of the way.  All my summer baskets and pots are looking straggly and past their best now so they will be going in the green bin sometime very soon but there are some lovely colourful cyclamen and sweet pansies ready to replace them .

I have another couple of easel cards almost ready so watch this space and thanks for looking!

Afraid I'm not doing very well in my mission to create 2 christmas cards a day, life gets in the way, there always seems to be other more important tasks like boring housework, shopping etc!!

I have seen these circular easel cards on a few blogs lately and thought I would give it a go and you know what, they are so easy!! Had a play around with various shapes using Nesties and discovered almost any shape can be made into an easel card, I have yet to decorate them so as soon as that is done I will post them.

This card I made for my daughter's friend who is moving house very soon. Isn't this image just so sweet? It's a fab free image from Mo Manning (Mo's Digital Pencil), I love Mo's images they are a breeze to colour, this one has been done using Promarkers.
Apologies for the rubbish quality of the photo, the weather here has been dark and dismal today, not ideal conditions for decent photos.
Thanks for looking!

LOTV Pup and Postbox

Isn't this image just soo cute?  I adore Lili of the Valley stamps so I was in seventh heaven when I found the LOTV stand at the Creative Crafts show in Manchester last weekend.  So much choice, I wanted them all!!  The images are so clear when stamped and easy to colour in, I really love em!!

This one has been coloured using Promarkers with lashings of Star Dust Stickles.
  The backing paper is by Dovecraft - A Jolly Happy Christmas, another buy from the show.

I am way behind with my intention to make at least 2 christmas cards a day, commission cards are getting in the way, but they are almost finished now so watch this space for more luscious LOTV images!

Thanks for looking!
