Saturday Sketch…





Morning crafters, it’s the start of a lovely long bank holiday weekend so I hope you all have something nice planned

It’s Saturday so time for a new sketch and today’s card is by Fleur
 
 
 
Sunny Days and Smiles - Fleur

 
Fleur has used one of our Summer Bears, we brought these out a couple of years ago and they are all so cute, this stamp is called Sunny Days and Smiles
 
You can see the full range in our Animals section under the rubber stamps heading on the website
 
The greeting is from Simply Sophisticated and she also sneaked in a couple of Sentiment Tags
 

Here’s the corresponding Sketch…
 
 
Sketch #13

 
As always a few little changes but the basic layout is the same, which is the idea!
 
From all the comments we’ve had I think you are finding the Sketches very useful which is great!

Here’s our candy winner from Thursday…
 
Jennie Furness
 
Well done Jennie, email your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

Because it’s a bank holiday and I won’t be around I’ve scheduled the next few posts. I think rather than having to go back and draw a small candy winner every day we’ll have a couple of larger prizes for over the holiday period. I’ll draw 2 winners on Tuesday from the comments left over the weekend and they will each win one of our patterned paper pads
 
 
Have a fabulous break everyone!

  27. WOW! I'm Thursdays candy winner! I'm so excited! Perfect surprise for my birthday weekend with my family - Thank you.

    Todays card by Fleur is really beautiful. I would love to know where the gorgeous paper flowers come from. I always struggle getting flowers on my cards to look this beautiful. I love the textured highlights Fleur has added to the flowers - how was this done?

    I always appreciate the sketch - helps me when I'm having one of these blank moments of 'where shall I start!' - Thank you
