Good Friends…





Good morning everyone, I hope you all have some fun things planned for the weekend ahead!

If you are going to the NEC today or tomorrow don’t forget to stop by our stand C31. Rich has some of our brand new stamps which are not launched on the website or in the shop until our open day on November 22nd. You will be the very first people to get your hands on them… and, they are SUPER cute! If you’re not going to the show we’ll be starting sneaky peeks of them next week



***

I do actually have a Sketch to match today’s card but my computer is playing silly beggars and won’t let me upload it so I’ll have to post it another time
It’s a beautiful card by our Kathy and shows a great way to use up all your scraps of papers (you know, those tiny pieces that really should go in the bin but which we crafters can’t bear to throw away lol!!)


Good Friends - Kathy


The strips of paper are a mix and match of different pads which aren’t really designed to go together, they look so effective used this way and I’ll be trying it myself. They are layered over a textured background with tulle and lace and some gorgeous flowers. Kathy wrote a great tutorial on how she made this card, you can see all the details and lots more pictures on her fabulous blog here

The quote is one of our top sellers and you can find it on our Friendship set

Hope you like it, leave a comment to be in today’s draw and I’ll draw a winner on Monday

Our winner from Thursday is you Lucy Woods, please send your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

Have a lovely Saturday everyone, see you tomorrow
