So Sweet!

Good morning everyone isn't it a beautiful day - sunny and frosty! Hope you are all having a fab weekend and relaxing a bit.  I'm going to the pictures tonight with my sister to see "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".  I've read the book and seen the Swedish film and I enjoyed both so I'll have to see what this one is like, mind you its got Daniel Craig in so at least there is some delish eye candy to drool over.

I've done a Lili of the Valley card today to enter in the challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies. The challenge is to use your favourite Lili of the Valley stamp which I find really difficult as I love them all and I think they are all my favourite lol.  Anyway the one I have chosen is a real sweetie in more than one sense of the word:


Isn't she adorable?  I have coloured her with a mixture of Promarkers and Copics and matted her with my Nesties.  The borders are cut out with my Edgeabilities (love 'em) and decorated with some pearls.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat (they have a sale on which finishes today) which I have cut with a Nestie and distressed with Spun Sugar DI.  Ribbon is from my stash and the button I got at Michaels in Las Vegas - wish I'd bought more :-(.  The card stock is from DCWV I thought it went so well with the image.  I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Your Favourite LOTV Stamp
Mark's Finest Papers - Border Punch
Challenge Up Your Life - Bingo (Purple, die cuts, sparkle)
The Poodle Parlour - Button Up
Simply Create Too - Layers
Southern Girls - Show us Your Sparkle
Little Darlings - Favourite Colour
My Mum's Craft Shop - Here Comes the Girls
Papertake Weekly - Die Cut Special
Sentimental Sunday - Ribbon
The Crafty Pad - Sparkle
The Hybrid Chick - Sparkle

Enjoy your weekend everyone, thanks for looking, take care xx
