Evening all! Summer is well and truly here to stay, it's getting so hot and very unbearable...so crafting is all i can do. This is my entry for Lili Of the Valley challenge which is a sketch this week (I'm sure I'll be joining in often now), my image is the lovely 'emma shoes' from 'here come the girls' range and I love them so much and finding them so easy to colour. This is one i bought when I was using my voucher and decided to spend a few pennies on some other images too. She is an adorable illustration depicting just what us girls do...decisions, decisions..which colour shall I go for...flat or heels!!! Fabby paper is from Donna 'thankyou', blooms and butterfly charm from The Works. The pink ribbon has shades running through it, have had it a long time, maybe the sun got to it, not sure but I like it! :))

When opened, the stopper for this type of card is the sentiment from old See D's stamps raised onto foam squares, tiny strip of offcut ribbon attached.


Challenges entered are..Cupcake Craft 'how old', Craft Your Passion 'anything goes', Stamps R Us 2nd entry 'birthday', Simon Says 2nd entry 'shaped card' as are Whoopsie daisy 2nd entry and Lexis Creations 2nd entry, Totally Papercrafts 2nd entry 'bling it up', Creative card Crew 'one foot forward', Little Darlings 'girly',
Bearly Mine 'charm, spots/dots', Papertake Weekly 'anything goes, xtra metal', Dream Valley 'surpise card...sentiment on inside', Allsorts 2nd entry 'free & easy' and One Stop Craft 'vintage' (papers). That is a lot feel free to disqualify if I've mistakenly entered, but I hope you enjoyed visiting today, bye.
