Two for Thursday

Lili of the Valley Challenge

We have a colour challenge for you this week on Lili of the Valley Challenge, one of my favourite colour combos


There is also a great prize of a complete set of Lili's Fairies Decoupage, so please come and join us, it is not necessary to use Lili of the Valley products and no problem with you combining challenges. The Fabulous DT have created some stunning cards to get you started.

I have used one of Janet from Pink Gem Designs fabulous Milly Stamps, this card is for a young girl of 6 and I think these cute stamps are just perfect for this sort of card.
My Mojo has been missing most of the last fortnight and I have had the most horrible Migraine since Monday so both the cards today are quite plain, I do hope my Mojo comes back soon, I really miss him

I have used the same papers inside the card and coloured the Milly stamp again.

Stamp -
Pink Gem Designs
Colouring Medium - Distress Inks and H20's
Papers - Imaginise
Tools - Cuttle Bug Swirl Embossing Folder, Nesties and Princess Charm available from
The Hobby House Prima Flower from Tabbycraft, Flat Backed Pearls Joanna Sheen

Toodle and Binks DT Card

Don't you think Clive makes the most unusual Birth Announcement card, I just adore him he really looks as if he his crowing out the news. He has been coloured with Copics, there may be some news on copics from Stamp Galaxy, so keep checking. I didn't want to use to many embellies on this card as the Papers and the image just say it all.

Very plain inside I am afraid

Stamp - Toodle and Binks Clive Cochran from
Stamp Galaxy
Papers - Download from Raspberry Road
Colouring Medium - Copics on MangaArt Board
Tools - Nesties and Martha Stewart Border Punch available at
The Hobby House
Embellies - Ribbon and Button from Raspberry Ribbons

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx

Great cards Jacqui - Mojo cant have gone to far cos that pink green and blue card is fabulous.

Being a migraine sufferer myself I send you my sympathy - there is nothing worse - specially a cluster one cos they last for so long. I really hope it clears soon.
