I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from the Julianne paper pack by K&Co. The sweet image was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a few Waterfall Stickles to the flowers, and cut out with triple Nesties. This little scene makes me feel that all the world's problems are solved now!!!
AND...a little bird just told me that you are going to start seeing some LOTV SNEAKY PEEKIES very soon--the cutest little boys and bears ever!!! Keep your peepers wide open!!
Thanks for dropping by to see what's happening in the LOTV world!! Have a marvelous day!! Hugs from Jacque!

Hello my friends, an other boy card. I really love what great sports themed images Lili of the Valley offers. There is something to find for every kid.
Tried to add some texture and interest with hardware, rather than with the typical flower treatment :-)
Get ready for some new super cute boy images that Lili of the Valley is going to release may 11. Stay tuned here on the DT blog as the girls will share their sample cards any day.
You will love the new collection :-)

This little Dandelion Clock girlie is the cutest thing ever!! She can be used for so many occasions and would make anyone happy! She was colored with Copics, adding Prisma Glitter to her wings and Stickles and Doodlebug Fluff to the dandelions. The DP is from the Lilac Avenue Collection by Kaisercraft, the ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and all of the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The "made with love" angel charm is handmade.
On the inside I have used a lovely sentiment from the Set 10-A5 Verses from the Clear Additions Range cut out with a Magnolia die.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in the wonderful Land of Lili of the Valley and we hope you will drop by often!! Until the next time, Jacque sends hugs!!

When she got home she e-mailed me to ask if I would mind her having a go at the Side Step Swirl Card I had made, of course I didn’t mind thats what our Samples are for to give you inspiration. Anyway Julie has completed her card and sent me the link, Wow Julie it is just perfect, I thought you would all like a chance to see it.
I am sure, like me you are impressed, if you would like to see more details of the card please click here to go to Julie post on her blog.

I just wanted to share a card I made for Papertake Weekly Challenge since LOTV is the sponsor this week. I used Birthday Bumps...Gosh!! These five little bears are having so much fun, it makes me want to be a part of the frivolity!! All of the sweet animals in the New Release are just too, too cute, aren't they?!! I also used one of the darling sentiments from the Dreamy Days Set.
The image was colored with Copics, adding a bit of FlowerSoft to the grass. The floral treatemtn is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm Open Rose, 15mm Open Roses, and a few 5mm Closed Rosebuds.

Today is Mothering Sunday here is the UK and all of us at Lili of the Valley would like to wish all those lovely hardworking Mums in blogland an extra special Day today.
I have a little Step card for you today to showcase lots of Lili of the Valley Stamps
I have used “Together Forever” Image and Sentiment from The Romance Collection and The lovely Ribbon Stamp from The LOTV Additions Range, I have also used LOTV Additions Blossom corner on the image my idea was to give the impression of the wing hanging from a Cherry/Apple Tree, think it looks quite good.
More information and details of how this card was made are on my blog http://jacqui47.blogspot.com .
Thanks for looking
