Lili of the Valley Christmas Bunting

Good afternoon to all my friends and  followers and thank you to those of you who have commented  on my recent cards I really appreciate your kind words. Todays card is made with a stamp I bought  a while ago but haven't got round to using. Its called Christmas Bunting from the LOTV 2013 Christmas release. I also took the opportunity to use some of the new things I bought at the GNPE in Harrogate.

I love the image and coloured her with Copic and Promarker pens. I also used papers from one of the new LOTV paper pads Woodland Wishes the colours and  designs are gorgeous.

I have just returned from an all day training event on Safer Recruitment so feel I've been talked at all day so am planning a nice quiet evening with a glass of wine.
Hope you all have a great weekend unfortunately we are painting the kitchen and giving it a general spring clean so nothing exciting for me.
I am entering this card in the Lili of the Valley monthly challenge Anything Goes and The Ribbon Girl challenge. and Crafty Little Fairies challenge.




  1. Absolutely beautiful card Carole! You've used so many lovely elements that work so well together. The colouring of the image is really fab, it must have taken you ages. The little stars on wire are a good purchase, I do like them.
    We're just taking my mum out for lunch tomorrow as she's not been out much recently, but we're not doing anything too exciting either this weekend. I hope you get through the painting quickly so you have time for crafting. Oh and how did your club like your acetate cards? Debra xx
