Hei there.. today I have a few “springy” things to show you. This weekend I was busy with a order I got through my Etsy store for some baby items. I made this card sometime last week using one of Lili Of The Valley’s new images called “Never too old for a cupcake” The stamp comes with the cute sentiment but it was a bit large for my layout. I love stamp sets like that – what a great deal to get a image AND a sentiment for the same money. Most of you what a little sucker iam for sentiments. hahahahha
Papers are by Stampin up
Gems and crochet ribbon is by: The Ribbon Girls
hop on over to the ribbon girls blog challenge no #13 for the colour challenge “PINK AND WHITE”

Right now iam sitting close to my sewing machine I have sew a little sack close to stuff with some fibers, to finally finish my pin cushions. My “master plan” is to finish all my knitted and most of my crochet stuff that’s been sitting here but the ends have not been waved it. I can not tell you how much I dislike to do this job. By the time I have something “finished” I have the next project in mind I and I think – oh I wave the ends in tonight but it never happens. I literally have stuff from last winter sitting in my closet that has to be finished!
Can you believe Christmas is less than a month away?! I can’t believe how quickly the year is speeding by. Since my kiddos started school, it seems like I blink and another month is gone! I’m hoping to get a few more Christmas cards made before I need to get them mailed out.
Today, I thought I would share a card that I made with one of the Lili of the Valley Christmas images called Moonlight Wishes. This was one of my favorite images from the Christmas releases this past summer.
There is just something so sweet about this image! I stamped the image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink. Then, I colored it with these copic markers: YG93, YG95, YG97, R24, R27, R46, R89, W1, W3, Y15, Y17, E35, YG17, YG67, E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02, colorless blender. I created a mask with eclipse masking tape. Then, I used a BG72 copic marker and my air compressor to spray the sky. I added some glitter to the moon and stars and some white fun flock the the ball on her cap.
I used some patterned papers from October Afternoon’s new Holiday Style paper pad. I added some crocheted lace from May Arts and some baker’s twine. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley’s Grunge Christmas Postmarks stamp set.
Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you've had a great weekend although I think many of you feel by heavy winds like we have here!!
This time I used 'Little Trumpet' for my card, and I just had to paper piece her gown. It looks like a rich, velvety damask with a bit of shading with my Copics. Just like an angel should have, lol!
The papers are from Kaisercraft, I am loving their Christmas paper pads this season! I also love that they have some coordinating die cuts in the back of the paper pad, easy to add some fancy touches to my layout.
The little silver bells and the pretty wood star are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Well I'm off to relax on my one day off from work this week, laundry, cleaning and some more stamping, lol! What a way to relax, right?!
Thanks for peeking in,

Reminds me of something I want to do with my kids each year At Macy’s there is a red mail box and I tell my kids we are going there to drop the list off for Santa. Last year I got myself out of it – I told them that I had posted the letter while they were in school and I was at the mail office lol.
this card has been ordered from Sonja quite a long time ago – I just had such a hard time to find a paper I liked with it. I thought I would need papers with reds but also lots of other colors so I can color the clothes in. After I had given up digging through all the pads I have – I just started coloring and it came together so easy and I did not even need many colors.
to the card
Supplies on it are as always Copic pens
Then paper is by Echo Park 12x12 – I must say I love it – I have the entire pack almost used up (shared half with a friend)
Stamps: Lili of the Valley Lots of Letters
Sentiments: Postmark clear this is really a great set to have and best of all they are back in stock! You might want to hurry with them – If you like them. They have been sold out just earlier this week.

Morning ladies,I’m back with this week’s Quick Flicks. I’ve had lots of requests to do a tutorial on colouring reds, so here it is. I will continue to colour this image over the coming weeks to demonstrate colouring with greens, browns and gold until the image is complete.
here I am again with another card of me. This time I´ve chosen the lovely image Moonlight Wishes from Lili of the Valley and matching to it, I´ve cut out some stars with my slice, which I`ve covered with a lot of glitter, just as the stars on the image :O) I also used the wonderful Grunge Christmas Postmarks, love this kind of stamps so much!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for swinging by.

The scrummy flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I adhered 10mm roses to the fence and bow. Those dinky little roses were made for this die I think. I finished it off with a 30mm wild rose, sweetheart blossoms and 8mm semi open roses.

And when you slide off the top, voila! A little holiday scene and floating snowflakes pop out at you.
I decorated little die cut pine trees with gold tinsel and red pearls.
The poinsettias are cut from vellum using a Spellbinders die, sponged with a bit of color before assembling.
The snowflakes are a SU die strip, frosted with German glass glitter and attached to thin strips of acetate.
I can't wait to send this to a very special person this Christmas!
Thanks for looking, I appreciate all the wonderful comments.

I wanted to show you a sweet little card I made using one of the latest images from Lili of the Valley and this image is so darn cute that I could just squeeze that little cuddled down bear!! He is Little Sleepy Head and he was colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the mobile. The base of the card is Bazzill, the double matting is PTI, the DP is from the Kaisercraft Lullaby Collection, and all background panels are machine stitched. I used an IO Shake It and cut out the openings with a Nestie, surrounding the image with some lovely blue lace. I filled the shake it with It's A Boy confetti from the local party shop. For the horizontal I used some polka dot grosgrain and dangled a baby footsies charm from the double flat bow.Finally I added a baby boy bead bracelet and some polka dot buttons to the corners!
The inside is very simple, adding another horizontal with double flat bow to the first panel and on the jotting panel, a sentiment from the For You Circular Sentiments set and several baby buttons.
Thank you so much for dropping by today and we would love to have you visit here often!! Until the next time, big hugs from Jacque!
Hi friends … finished an other Lili of the Valley card. This card was ordered and I just loved to make it. This new Lili of the Valley image “Cake Glorious cake” is just too sweet and as you know all stamps have been released today!!!! I went with some pretty Stampin up papers I had saved up for a very long time.
The pinks are from the RV 000 range – I hardly ever color with the RV range but it turned out to be okay.
Sentiment: Stampin up
butterflies and swirls are Recollections – found them at Michaels
lots of love
