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

Leave a comment to be in our bank holiday draw to win a patterned paper pad, the lucky winners will be announced on Tuesday

 

Have a great Saturday all

  45. Hi Anne, another great card by Dena. I've just got home from a holiday in Yorkshire and managed to fit a trip in to your lovely shop. It was so nice to see everything on show and stock up with lots of lovely goodies. I must say that the cards and projects on show created by the DT are even more stunning in real life, they are amazing.
