Another one for the lili of the valley anything goes challenge!!

papers- MME and cream pearlescent paper.

Hello Peeps!! me again!!

A friend at work asked me if I could make an engagement card for her to give to her friend. I just had to use one of my super sweet new Lili of the valley stamps that I bought on sunday (...yup, I got 12!!! and now I am saving up for some of the new cute little girl ones!!!) This one is called 'Love Grows' and it is a perfect little summery image too.

I cut out a heart shape with my cricut on my fabulous stamping card, (that I also bought a bit more of at the show!!! you can never have enough...) and coloured it in with my promarkers. The little pot has some pink glaze pen on and it looked so cute! I also added a little natural rafia to the heart and ran some pearlescent cream paper through my cuttlebug with the tiny hearts embossing folder, that got distressed with a bit of frayed burlap, along with the heart!!!!
And of course, the much needed punched edge from Martha!! a card should never be without one!!!!! this one is the doily hearts punch.
The teeny butterfly with its congrats sentiment is one from my stash that my lovely Kat sent me in blog candy a few years ago. I use it all the time, its so cute!!!
Here is a close up...

OMG!!! its so cute!!! I can't wait to open a few more of my stamps tonight!!!

I am going to enter this one in the LOTV challenge blogs Anything Goes challenge ( I hope its ok to enter 2?) .
And the Totally Papercrafts Summer challenge as this is such a cute summery little image.

I promise not to post anymore tonight!! :) :) and please scroll down if you are looking for my Tiddly Tuesday post!!

Happy Tiddly Tuesday peeps!!!

Over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog We are celebrating "crafting with a twist" for the month of June and we really twisted it this week---we have to Simplify!! OMG!!! I nearly fell off my chair when I read this one!!!!

Then a funny thing happened and I got super busy with some of Christy's coloured art. OMG they are just fabulous to work with and made the challenge so much fun. You can find a whole bunch of fabulous coloured Tiddly Inks Here...

I made a few little notecards and all I needed to do was add a little thread on one, ribbon and distress inks.

So as hard as it might be (ask the rest of the Tiddly Inkers..this was a toughy!!) get out your fav Tiddly Inks images and , please create a one-layer card , you can add a squidge of ribbon or twine.

This one uses Be Anything but typical.

Oh I love the way she is sitting there with her martini!! and check out those awesome zebra print shoes!! and the best thing is, that diamondy background that you can just about see comes altogether with the image, Yey!!! I added a little shabby shutters distress ink around the edges to tie in the yummy greens in the image, a bit of green ribbon and a flower charm.

And now onto my fav....this one was my favourite because it is so fun and it always reminds me of one of my awesome tiddly inker DT buddies, Melissa. It is called Chemical Love and I love it!!

Again, all this card needed was a little red distress ink around the edges to tie in the red in the coloured image and KAPOW!!! job done!!!
I actually have 2 more of these on the go at the mminute but I couldn't get them finished in time to post!!! I will get them finished off for later in the week!!

Now go get busy with your Tiddly Inks and I can't wait to see how you use your them for this challenge!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
