Start of a new week and a new school year, Good Luck to all your little ones who are starting school today, and also to those who are moving up to Secondary School, I can still remember the fear I felt on my first day at Secondary School.
Well girls not long to wait now before you can have the pleasure of playing with the delightful new Lili of the Valley Christmas Release, in fact just over 12 hours, if you can wait up till midnight. So as a treat for you I am going to give you 2 sneak peeks today!!! don’t get too excited
The First card is made using “Three Little Angels”
Lots of Distressing on this one, I carefully tore around the edges of two layer of Magnolia Papers from my scrap box and distressed with Distress Ink, I used a Nellie Sneden Corner die on the bottom layer of paper, and tucked a die cut label behind the image. Didn’t have small enough pearls for the effect I wanted so used Opal Liquid Pearls, the image was coloured with Copics.

My Second Card is using “Little Holly”
Before I start I have to apologise, I coloured this image ages ago for the Lili of the Valley advertising sheet and cannot remember the colours I used. The papers are from First Edition paper Pad – Festive Treats. 3 lengths of ribbon have been threaded through the matted image and secured at the back at the top and bottom, I added Sticky Buds to the back of the image to keep it in place. The stars are die cuts and I have just added oddles of Silver glitter to them.
