Time Flies…




Morning lovely crafty friends, hope those of you in the UK had a nice bank holiday weekend…  the weather was completely rubbish here but at least it meant I could get a bit of crafting done. An hour here or there isn’t enough to get stuck into a new project so it was lovely to have a full morning and try something new. If it turns out ok I’ll share it soon, if it doesn’t it will be going in the bin!!



I have a lovely simple card for you today, this is by Jen and she used one of the Birthday Fairy stamps that we launched for our 10th birthday earlier in the year…



Time Flies - Jen
 

This little cutie is called Time Flies and she is also in the Magical Fairies art pad if you prefer to use the pre-coloured toppers

Jen used a sentiment that you probably won’t have seen before, this is on our Summer Bears companion set If you haven’t seen this clear set then do take a look as it’s full of cute little mini images and sentiments, you get a full A5 sheet for just £12.99 and they are so useful

Me and my dog…

 

 

Hello everybody, thanks for stopping by on this August Bank Holiday

We’ve had a nice long weekend here in the UK, it’s the last one of the year although it’s going to rain for the whole day here I think!

I’m going to have a break from Christmas for a couple of days and share some cards that are a bit more summery…

today I have a lovely one from our Dawny using the Milly Me and my Dog stamp

 

Millie Me and My Dog - Dawny

 

I adore this colour combo, Dawny used one of the Scroll Sentiments and papers from our gorgeous Up, Up & Away and Country Meadow pads…

 LOTV COUNTRY MEADOW PAPER PAD FRONT COVER

Dawny has been making some 8 x 8 cards for a change and they look great, lots of room for all your lovely embellies and you can really show off the pretty papers too with the extra space…  they are certainly a bit of a statement card!

That’s me done, leave a comment if you would like a chance to win one of our lovely paper pads, I’ll be drawing 2 winners tomorrow from the comments left over the weekend

Have a lovely day everyone

New Saturday Sketch…

 

 

Good morning bloggers, it looks set to be quite nice here for the next couple of days so I think I’ll try and get the garden tidied up a bit. I’ve neglected it this year, I do enjoy pottering in the garden but I really just want to spend every spare minute that I have crafting!!

The DT have made lots of cards using this year’s new Christmas images, I know you like to see plenty of inspiration using them and today I have another by Dena

This cute stamp is called Hat’s Off

 

Hats Off - Dena

Dena used papers from the new ‘Twas The Night pad and the sentiment is on the Christmas Wishes set

***

Here’s the matching Sketch, a nice simple one which you can always embellish to your own taste… Dena added some Christmassy flowers and a few pearls.

 

Sketch #24

You can see all our Sketches on the Sketch Page at the top of the blog, they are really useful for layout ideas and don’t forget that it’s just a guideline and you can rotate the elements to suit your style

Here’s our Theme Thursday winner…

it was linky number 5 which is you Rian

thursday 21st

Well done Rian, email your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

Dandelion Clock…

 

 

 

Morning everyone, it’s Friday again and a bank holiday here in the UK so we have a nice long weekend to look forward to

I thought we’d have a break from Christmas today and I have a beautiful card to share by Gretha

 

Dandelion Clock - Gretha

Gretha used the Dandelion Clock stamp, this is one of our older images but still a very popular one…   isn’t she pretty!

***

That’s it for this week folks, I’ll be here every day over the bank holiday so make sure you stop by. I think we’ll have a bigger draw over the weekend instead of a small daily prize so there will be one of our paper pads for 2 lucky winners. Make sure you leave feedback each day and I’ll draw a couple of winners on Tuesday from all the comments left over the next few days

Our winner from Wednesday is Sari, well done Sari please email erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk with your address

 

See you tomorrow, have a good day
