Crackers!


I made this card today using a fabulous stamp from Lili of the Valley after I had seen Dawny P's creations in the recent CM&P magazine.  I knew when I saw the stamp I had to have it!   I have two wonderful, bonkers gorgeous English Springer Spaniel dogs, Kevin and Oliver, and they are my world.

Below is a picture of Oliver tearing right into his christmas present!


Anyway, the challenge over the the Lili of the Valley Challenge this week is not only Anything Goes, but also a fab blog-hop with some awesome prizes.  I love the Lili of the Valley range, they are the cutest, most adorable and fun images to craft with, and I totally loved making this card.

I used Cracking Christmas stamp, coloured with Pro-markers.  I embossed the white panels, layered on pale blue bazzill card, and used Marianne D dies.  (Does anyone know how we are fixing these fab flourishes, as Im just getting by with a few sticky dots?).  I followed the excellent sketch over at the Totally Gorjuss blog.

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes
A Spoonful of Sugar - Snowflakes
I Love ProMarkers - Icy Colours
Simon Says Stamp - Card for a male, with a charm (guess whos hubby is getting this for xmas!) :D
Totally Gorjuss - Great Sketch!
ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for Winter Wonderland - I used a Snow embossing folder, and snowflakes.
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Creatalicious Challenges - Mostly White
Crafty Calender Challenge - Winter Snowflakes

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great weekend! :)

Love the LOTV stamp - will have to get my act together for that hop. Oliver is rather handsome - looks as if he meant business & didn;'t want anyone grabbing HIS pressie.

OK - so Oliver distracted me from the business in hand - commenting on the card! So....... love that die with the snowflake - think I might use some Tackly glue or Glossy Accents - applied with the ubiquitous cocktail stick. Your colours are amazing & as fro ProMarker colouring - brill.....
