Lili of the Valley Challenge



Good Morning!!, I am going to be busy until Midday so thought I had better get this on at Midnight so I don’t forget,  looks as if it will be a late night for me,  I bought a Kindle just before Christmas and now as well as my cardmaking addiction I have an addiction to reading, so as soon as I have finished writing this I am going to hit the sack and read.  At the moment I am reading a biography of Bess of Hardwick, its so well written and she had such an interesting life that I find it hard to put it down,  so it looks as if it will be another night when I don’t get to sleep until 3am.


Its Lili of the Valley Challenge time again, and we have a great sketch by Bev for you and a £10 voucher to spend on the Lili of the Valley website for one lucky winner (just in time to spend it on the new release).




This image is called “Icing Sugar”, I am loving these little meeces and hope LOTV will be bring out more in the future.  I have used Copic to colour the image and sprinkled  Glamour dust to give the impression of icing sugar (don’t you just adore that little one under the umbrella.


I have turned Bevs Sketch upside down and cut the bottom of the curve off of the front of the card, I then added a 6” square of acetate to the front and matted brown, pink and patterned card over the top. (Hope you can understand that!!!),  The flowers and swirls were punched with a selection of punches and I have added flat backed pearls to the middle.  Butterflies and Floral strip were all punched with Martha Stewart Punches.




So sorry I was being very tidy tonight and put my copics away before I had made a note of the numbers Doh!!!!!




A close up of the flowers.


I also made this card with the little Mice.




This image is called “Cherry on Top” everytime I look at the image I see something else in it to make me smile.  The paper is from  Basic Grey Porcelain Pad and is really yummy.  The sentiment is also from the new release.


Again coloured with those unknown Copic colours, I have added glossy accents to the cherries and IRL they look good enough to eat.  I found these stunning wooden buttons on The Hobby House stall at Farnborough, I also bought the Butterflies, Dragonflies and Hearts.  The Seam Binding and Twine are from The Ribbon Girl.



Well thats it for now, I am off to read about Bess!!  Have a lovely day.

Hugs Jacqui xxxxx

Two gorgeous makes, Jacqui. I think the cooking mice are my faves from the new release. Both cards are coloured superbly. I love your acetate make. It's really cool! And that sentiment is perfect for the second card. Fabulous! Hugs, Lesley
