LOTV challenge

Morning all (is it morning already???)  This is going to be a quick post from me as I had planned on getting this post scheduled last night then settling in for a night of magazine work, well best laid plans and all that, I ended up dashing out on a mercy mission for a friend in the middle of getting my tea and didn’t get back in till gone 2 this morning.  So I am sat here rather bleary eyed over a cup of coffee (and I hate the stuff!!) to wake me up so I can get off to work.  I will need matchsticks today I think and it’s going to be a looooong day.

So my card today is for this week’s Lili of the Valley challenge is a wedding card I was commissioned to do months back, following one of my sketches.  The image had to be none other than I Do from Lili of the Valley

The paper is digital but right now my brain is so befuddled I have no idea where it is from, if I can remember I will update this post (although Raspberry Road rings a bell).  The sentiment is one I whipped up in Photoshop, feel free to save it if you have a use for it.  Just click on it to bring it up to full size before saving to your computer.

Bev Rochester Always and Forever

The gorgeous 30mm wild rose, Tea Rosebuds, cherry blossoms, sweetheart blossoms and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The Fretwork Heart behind the image is a Go Kreate die as is the tag.  The Heart Chain border die is from Dies to Die For.

The bride to be wanted a tag on the inside so she could write a message to her future husband.  She chose the colours and also asked for me to make the card similar to one I had done before using a different image.  I hope she liked it Smile

I am sorry if this post don’t make sense, I tried my best lol.  Heaven help anyone that needs me to use my brain at work today – nay chance rofl.

And before I sign off, I see there is a sneak peek on Lili of the Valley’s website of the new stamps that are going to be released on 10th November on the website but if you are going to the SECC or NEC you will be able to get hold of yours sooner!!
