Welcome Netty…

 

 

 

lotvguest880

Morning all, I have a fab new Guest Designer to welcome today

I think a few of you will have seen her cards and she has been a big Lili of the Valley fan for many years

…it’s the lovely Annette

Annette Connelly

 

"Hello everyone.  My name's Annette and I live in the South West of England, right on the coast in beautiful South Devon.  I'm married with 2 adopted feline fur-babies.  I've been crafting for as long as I remember, and became hooked on card-making about 10 years ago. Stamping is my favourite technique and my style is cute and girlie.  I've adored Lili of the Valley stamps for years, and they're definitely an addiction of mine, although it's safe to say I'm seeking no cure!  I'm so proud and excited to be a guest designer for July, especially when their talented team have inspired me for so long.  I've chosen to showcase a variety of characters during the month, including one that was a little outside my comfort zone, which actually turned out to be my favourite.  It's funny how things like that can turn out, so perhaps this will encourage you to try something new too.  I'd like to thank LOTV for inviting me to guest design for the month, and hope that my creations inspire you to dig out your Lili images, or treat yourself to something new from the shop, and get inky."

 

 

Here’s the first project that Netty made for us, it’s a beautiful clock…

 

Netty 1 - July - Tug Of War

 

Netty 1 - July - Tug Of War 2

 

She used our Tug of War stamp, beautifully coloured in and then added some clouds in the background and a lovely floral border

Annette will put details of how she made this on her own blog so do go and have a look and you can see more of her lovely cards on there too

I hope you’ll give her a lovely welcome, I’ll draw a candy winner from the comments and there will be another make from her later in the month

*

Just before I go here is our winner from Monday, it’s you Nikki C

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

See you tomorrow

  35. Fabulous creation! I first thought it was a card ...then started to wonder what the clock numbers stand for ...just to realize
    it is no card at all! Love that image, the color scheme is much into my taste and all the embellies are fine finishing touch.

    Hugs from Finland,
