Lili of the Valley challenge

I managed to get my card done on time this week thank goodness.   And now I am in a mad flap again to get everything done before going down to Harrogate this weekend for the GNPE show.  I love that show, it’s definitely the best on the show calendar (I agree with you there Kath) and bonus it’s only an hour and a half travel for me :)  So all the girlies going on the weekend,  I will have taken root at the LOTV stall (where else??) with my mate Jacqui and the gorgeous LOTV girlies.

Enough waffling Bev!  This week’s Lili of the Valley challenge is Miss You.  So I went for a Christmas card for some of my fab friends far far away in sunnier climes.

I have used Little Bears Christmas Tree from Lili of the Valley today and I got me a pad of the new Papermania Christmas papers last weekend, just my kind of Christmas colours :)  And isn’t that Colonial Lamp Post die just fab!  I can see me using this lots on my Chrissie cards this year. 

The 25mm rose and 10mm roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the gingham ribbon and the German Glass Glitter that I added to the roses to give an icy look.

That’s it from me today.  Apart from to say thanks to all that messaged and emailed about my Tony, he is fine thanks, recovering after his tests (yep more lol) – this getting old is a load of RUBBISH!!!  I wanna go back to being 40 and stay at that age for the next 30 years lolol.

  2. The flowers are gorgeous! I am a ribbon fanatic and adding a red ribbon gave your design a certain level of femininity and softness.
