Daring Card Makers Flowers for may & Totally Gorjuss sketch challenges.

Papers- Laura Ashley.
Hello peeps!!

This week over on the Daring Card Makers challenge blog it is the first challenge of the month which is always flowers. The flowers for this month are Lily of the valley and Hawthorn. You can you either one or both.

Sadly I didn't have a hawthorn but I did have my sweet little Lilli Claire- Bloom Little Lilly from Tiddly inks so I coloured her up to play along! ( ...someone please pick Kathy up from the floor because Lou has managed to make something and enter the challenge instead of saying she will and forgetting....!!)

I colured her up and followed the sketch from the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog's sketch challenge this week, the sketch is lurvely and here it is....

So this is almost a record for me! 2 challenges in one post!!
I have, however, decided today that 2 challenges for each card will be my limit. That way I know I have done my card with both challenges in mind personally rather than throwing it in for a load of challenges and not really thinking about it twice.

Right onto getting ready for work and school. Mo left his  prized fossil at school yesterday and has been pretty distraught about it, especially after his reading book from school was about them too ( arghhhhh!) so I am hoping it is still on his teachers desk and safe for him to collect at the end of the day.
Thank you for peeking in on me.
Hugs Lou xxxxx

  2. What a delicious card Lou ! I love the colours you have chosen ! Your colouring of the haire is fantastic and I think that I am going to try this sketch ! It's fab ! Gorgeous creation ! I love it !

  3. Lou, this is a very sweet card... love this colour combo and sweet new stamp you picked!

    It's not easy to combine several challenges.... you did a great job!

  4. Lou. I left a comment earlier but Blogger may have gobbled it up as there've been problems this morning.
    Your card is just lovely - such a sweet image and such perfect colours. I didn't so much fall over in shock as chuck my coffee all over myself.....

  5. What a sweet card Lucy! I love your cute image with the Lily of Valley bloom - just perfect for our DCM challenge. Thank you for joining us this week.

  6. I'm with you, Lou! Too many challenges spoils the card. These two are just perfect! Love lillies of the valley, but what the heck are hawthornes? Gonna go check. xxD

  7. Oh Lou, this card is sooooo pretty and I love, love, love this image. I think I might need it. xxx

  8. Great card Lou. I don't usually enter a card for more then 2-3 challenges myself, although for me it's laziness - too much uploading.

    Thanks for the layout link, it's a great sketch.

  9. Waw,, This card is very nice, sweet and beautiful,,,
