MY FIRST CARD FOR 2011!.....................................

Evening all!

Hope you are all well and still enjoying our long weekend :o)
The tree and dec's have all gone now and my house is all back to normal woohoo! Spent all day yesterday dusting and hoovering so no crafting for me boohoo, but I did make up for it today and it was lovely to see loads of new challenges which don't require a Xmas card lol!

So my little creation today is a lovely stamp from Lili of the Valley. Cannot wait till the 11th Jan to see all their new stamps and I feel a little spend coming up hehehe. I have used some gorgeous papers from MME Fine and Dandy "True Blue" paper pad and a couple of embellies, another one of my simples cards lol!

This sweetie is going into the following Challenges :-
Sketch Saturday # 136 ~ Fab Sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges # C4C68 ~ Celebrate Something

Sailing Boat ~ Lili of the Valley

Hi Vicky

I just cannot believe you are so happy to have put Christmas away .. .. I have delayed until tomorrow but will be uber sad when it is all put away again for another year :-(

I think I could have written the song .. .. "I wish it could be Christmas every day" !!!! Tee hee!!!

But enough of that because I realise I am now starting to sound slightly "not normal" LOL!!!!

Your share tonight is gorgeous. A brilliant, well coloured image, and great use of the sketch.

LOTV stamps are so cute and I just daren't look at the new releases!!!

I will catch you again tomorrow with your DT creation.

Love Jules xx

Juls said...

I was running in the opposite direction when I saw this sketch the triange really scared me....but it just works so perfectly with that image!!! it refects the shape of the sails on the boat...also love what you have done with the eyelets and ties it all together perfectly!!! fabulous I am well inspired! Hugs Juls

Fabulous card, Vicky. I love that it's CAS cos then it's all about the papers and the image and you've done a great colouring job on it!! (Talking of the images, I can't wait til the 11th either!!) I also love the way you've stuck the sentiment on the image panel - I've never tried that, so might have to 'case' your idea (if you don't mind!) Hugs, Marie xx
