DT Post - Sweeet Stampin'

Good morning to one and all

I hope you have had a brilliant crafty week.  On Thursday I went with two crafty friends, Anne and Chrissie,  to the NEC for Hobbycrafts, and of course, it involved spending a fair amount of money, and having a great time!  I spent a fair amount of time drooling over the work on the PaperArtsy stand and watching Leandra demoing.

This week at Sweet Stampin' we have a photo to give you inspiration for your creation, which I guess will give you lots of choice for your colours.

We are sponsored today by Pollycraft

and one lucky winner will win a set of seasonal digis.

I have chosen to use the pinky colour as my main colour again - cannot get away from it at the moment - but there are tiny accents of the other colours as well.

I have used a Lili of the Valley image - Christmas Candle for this card, which has been coloured in Copics.  My backing papers are from the lush Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper stack.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have punched out some holly leaves and fern to go with them.  Some pretty pink and white lace, crtstals and loads of stickles complete the picture.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Craft your passion - Anything goes
Charisna Cardz Challenge - With love at Christmas
Fairytale Challenge - Everything goes
PaperPlay Challenge - Circles
The ABC Challenge - G is for Glitter
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.


  1. Love this card Val. Although I don't often do 'cute' myself it doesn't mean I don't like to see it and the LOV images just seem to keep getting better and better. This one is lovely and you have really done it justice with your colouring and presentation. I especially love that gorgeous lace you have used.
