Happy Birthday Chrissy and Lili Of The Valley New Stamps

Happy Birthday Chrissy, over there in New Zealand!
Have a wonderful day.

I finally managed to not just look at my new stamps from Lili Of The Valley,
but to actually make a card with them. 

So easy to colour and just what is needed to fill a gap in the market.
Jasmine does that perfectly.


I coloured her with my trusty Distress Inks.
Flowers are cut with a Tim Holtz Die.


Short post today as under the weather again. Caught a coughing virus
from my dear husband. It wears you out coughing all day.
I got up at 5am this morning, as I got fed up with coughing and not sleeping!

Before I go and get yet more medicine, please pop over to 
Winter Wonderland Challenge blog.
A new challenge starts today and a great prize for the winner.
Also gets you ahead with making your Christmas cards.
Just had a peek and there are some awesome 
cards there for inspiration.

Thanks for popping in and your kind messages are 
always a treat to read.

I am actually entering my card into a couple of challenges!!

This is a smashing card Carol and you are quite right, they do fit a gap quite nicely. Martin and I had a virus about six weeks ago and our cough has only just gone, hope yours goes soon xx

Fabulous card Carol...I so far have resisted these stamps as I have so much unused stuff...and no teens to make for! Your colouring is superb. Hope that cough goes soon! You must be well run down...we need sunshine NOT rain I say!!
