A vision of loveliness in pink, pearls, lace and ribbon!

.... Or she might be if she did not have such a scowl on her face!  But a really fun image from Lili of the Valley.

This is the first crafting I have done, since I had a fabby day with my friend Anne, when we started on a canvas project and Anne taught me a few inky things and how to put a stamped image on to a candle (no - I've never done it before).  I have a gastroenteritis bug - but we don't know whether it is that or food poisoning - I am still waiting for my test results.  I was being so ill  Monday night/Tuesday morning that my dear OH called the doctor.  I have been living on toast and occasional bowls of soup.

So on to my card.  I have used the lovely LOTV image It's my Party, which I have coloured in Copics.   I have followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday.  My papers are Crate Paper Restoration, I have added lace, which has ribbon threaded throught it,  and pearls from stash, and flowers from WOC.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Phindy's Place - Lace and Pearls
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Do you stack up - Patterned paper
The Rubber Cafe - Sparkle and Glitter
Cooking it up with Katie - Sketch me a textured punch
Freshly Brewed - Photo inspiration for colours
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.


  1. Oooh, sorry you've not been well Val. There's been an awful lot of people poorly round us with a nasty tummy bug from which I'm trying to steer clear. I do hope you'll be fully recovered very soon.

    As for your card, it's really lovely. I adore that image because it reminds me of my eldest (she's just 3) granddaughter when she's 'in a mood'! The colours and bps are beautiful and I like the touches of sparkle - just enough.
