Is it two weeks already??

I'm going to start off this post by sharing my card that I made for the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog (check out my link list above), and I honestly can't believe it's two weeks since the last challenge! Boy, did that creep up on me!

Anyway, without further ado, here's the card which to me, represented the theme Summer Fun. 

To me, there's nothing better than a camping trip to Mabelthorpe, and a paddle on my favourite beach there - it's always empty and we have the beach to ourselves! It must be my own personal little secret, and I - and the furbabies - love it!
Here's a little close up of the stamped image - 

As you can see I paper pieced the dress to make the image stand out a little more. The rest is stamped and coloured on white cardstock, and I coloured using Stampin Up Watercolour Wonder crayons. These are fab and I reckon I'll have to buy some more! I added a few different colours for the sky and water, then finished off with a little holographic glitter to add some sparkle. 
The papers are all stampin up too, which I got through a fantastic paper share I have taken part in. When I know which they are, I'll let you know. 
The next cards I want to share are two that I did for the lovely Rebekah from our vet surgery. She is so sweet, and when I was in with the cat the other day, she asked if I could make a welcome home card for her boyfriend. I got the requirements for the card, and then came home to do my bit... and here are the results.. 


So, that's all for now... apart from to say that you should go and check out Lili of the Valley... They have a massive sale on at the moment and you can save absolutely oooooodles of dosh! Go over and take a look, and whilst your there, check out the news section where they put up details of their TV shows.. there are some new items out and they are beautiful. 
Right.. I'm off for now.. back soon with more to share! xx
