Happy 10th Birthday Lili of the Valley

Hi to all my lovely bloggers,
 
I don't improve with posting a bit more often, do I!! I have made loads of stuff for my market on Sunday and just don't find the time to post the pics!
 
My days never go to plan. I don't know why I bother planning my days at all. Monday was a disaster, from the start to the end of the day.
 
One day that is definitely planned, is Saturday. I am off to Ally Pally for some serious shopping! I have a great long list, as always.
 
I am going to look out for people who follow my blog, that have photos on their blogs. I haven't, as I don't want to scare anyone!Lol!
 
I have made this CAS card for Lili of the Valley's 10th birthday. The stamp is called 'A Lick Of Paint'. I have had it quite a while and this is the first time I have used it.
 
I still find it hard doing CAS cards. They just look unfinished when I do them. Yet cards that Jen and Mary J. make, look lovely!
 
For the Happy Birthday,  I used a die that was free, with Simply Card and Papercraft magazine. I inked a scrap piece of white card with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and then cut it out. I used Distress Inks to colour the image too. The number was from some white stickers, that my daughter gave me, which I coloured with a Copics pen.
 
 
The papers are from a Papermania Border Pack for men.  I bought it so many years ago, I can't remember when! They have never been used, until this card.
 
I put some Glossy Accents on the paintbrush and the spills.
 
 
Well that's it for tonight. Hope you like my CAS card more than I do!
 
A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all the staff at Lili of the Valley. Please keep bringing us such wonderful products.
