Smile!

And smile I did whilst making this card!  These are so NOT my colours – in fact I usually shy away from them but took a deep breath and printed out some papers from the newest kit from Nitwit Collections, The Bees KneesThe card was for a very dear friend’s birthday and she is the Bees Knees and she always makes me smile so I had to use one of the button sentiments from the kit.  It was her birthday this week and she will have already received the card so I’m safe to blog it now

The super cute stamp is from the latest Stampavie release, this is Bunny with Butterflies and is my favourite of all the Tina Wenke designs.   The embellishments are all from Wild Orchid Craftsseam binding, lace, 25mm wild rose, sweetheart blossoms, calla lilies and 15mm roses as well as the dotty button and divine twine.

The inside was so easy to do, I just printed off a piece of plaid paper (but before printing off removed a square section from the centre in Photoshop to leave place for the sentiment).

And before I close a quick reminder about the new LOTV stamps!  If you hadn’t noticed (!) Lili of the Valley’s 6 new cute boy stamps and 8 amazing new sentiment sheets are out next Wednesday 9th May at midnight. For those of you going along to the open weekend this weekend, you can pick them up first before they are even launched! There’s 10% off all purchases, a raffle where you can win over £300 worth of prizes,  and you can even enjoy a cream tea and other refreshments if all that’s too much! See you there as I will be running workshops all weekend, and Dawny P will be demonstrating colouring techniques!
