A Card for CLP Challenge and a Sneak Peek

Morning all, its two cards from me today one is a delicious Sneak Peek from Lili of the Valley and the other is my entry for this months CPL Challenge using my New Magnolia Purchases. 
First its my CPL Challenge Card, once I saw the fantastic  Sketch for this months challenge I knew I just had to have a go
As you know I went to Crafts U Love last week and they had just had their latest delivery which included the new Magnolia Collection, I have been really disappointed with the last couple of  Tilda  releases and didn’t in fact buy any but this Christmas release was just irresistible, the papers accompanying the release are also one of their best.  I also bought a few of the new Doo Hickey Dies and have used them on this card, one  is the Mistletoe leaves I have used and the other is the Poinsettia Die.  
Instead of a paper layer tucked behind the image I have used the Lili of the Valley “Grunge Postcard  Stamp” and a little Post Stamp from their recently released  “Grunge Christmas Postmark Set" .  The card base is created with a Go-Kreate Die, love using these dies for shaped cards.
I thought I would show you a close up of the delicious Memory Box  Frosty Border Die from Dies to Die For, I have covered the border in Glamour Dust and add lots of Pearls.
Here is a close up of the sweet image.
Next I have a Sneak Peek from the New Release from Lili of the Valley we are launching them at the big UK Hobbycrafts show at the NEC next Thursday, but they won’t be on sale on the website until the following Thursday, which is 10.11.11, so if you are at the NEC next week please come and visit our stand and be one of the first to get your hands on these delicious new images.
This little image is called Positively Pampered and comes complete with her own sentiment, when I was colouring her I decided to use the same colours as my first Fairy Tiptoes card as I am sure it is the same fairy.
Again I have used a Go-Kreate die for the card base, the paper is by Magnolia.  I have distressed around the edge of the image and Sentiment  with Spun Sugar DI.  The Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the last (which is the last piece I have must remember to stock up at the NEC) is from the Ribbon Box.  Once again I have used one of my new dies from Dies to Die For this one is  Catalinas Wreath which has also been distressed around the edge with SPUN Sugar DI.
Well think this post is long enough so all thats left to say is for those of you in the UK don’t forget to put your clocks back tonight, woooooooheeeeee an extra hours sleep.  And all of you have a fabulous weekend
