CLOSE YOUR EYES....

Morning all.......

Oooh the weather looks rather nasty here today...grey skies and me thinks we will have lots and lots of rain...so I think the best place for me to hide is in my wee room...lol...!

So onto my card....and today I have used one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps I bought at Ally Pally at the weekend...and I so love this sweet couple...! I have used some gorgeous Prima Papers, Memory Box swirl die and again a rolled flower and my wee butterflies too...
 
Ooh I nearly forgot to say...I LOVE Copic pens...! This was my first time using them and OMG..I need them all...lol...!!

And here are the sweet couple..
