Good Morning and a Happy May Day to you all, I have always loved May Day when I was young (many moons ago) we used to have a May Day parade through the Village, a May Queen would be chosen from the Girls at the primary school and we would all make her a crown of flowers, then a Maypole was set up on the green and all the girls and boys dressed in white with lots of coloured ribbons around their waist and on their hats would dance around the Maypole, I really wish they would bring the celebration back, it may be my imagination but it always seemed that the sun was shining.
Another sneak peek for you today from the New Boy oh Boy release (on sale from 11th May) by Lili of the Valley. My piccies a bit blurred I am afraid, I think I was shaking I had just turned on the TV and heard of the death of Osama Bin Laden, I know you shouldn’t rejoice at anyones death and we will now have to be extra vigilant but I think it will help those people who lost loved ones in the terrible attacks he encouraged all over the world to have a closure.
Well back to the card I am sorry I went off at a tangent. The papers are from K&CO Hopscotch Boy Papers and I have used a Martha Stewart Border Punch, I have used 2 Tags from the Lili of the Valley Clear Additions Tag Sheet and the word are also from the Clear Additions range. I have attached them to Bakers twine from The Ribon Girl with a Tim Holtzs Bulldog Clip.
Sorry I have not got the colours I used on this one I coloured the image for Advertising purposes ages ago and I know I made a note of the colours but cannot find it.
I have not done very much crafting this weekend but last night I just had to colour up another of my TeddyBo images (sorry TeddyBea), I am so in love with these.
I was playing with layering up as you can see, I always play safe with layers keeping squares with squares ovals with ovals etc, but wanted to see how it would look if I mixed shapes, I am really pleased with the outcome and am going to try to be more adventurous in the future. I have stamped the Lili of the Valley Grunge Music Stamp in Victorian velvet Distress Ink, then punched the circular doily and label and distressed again with Victorian Velvet The Sentiment is computer generated.
