Millie & Friend

Good morning peeps and I hope you are all OK today and managing to stay reasonably cool!!

A few weeks ago, Lydia from Splitcoast Stampers  emailed me to ask if I would like to be one of the Dirty Dozen.
Well of course I said yes please!! So for the next 6 months, you’ll find me over there. To be honest, I never realised what a fabulous source of info and inspiration that website is -  it is amazing, and I’m so glad I agreed to do this.

So this is for my first month and the theme is to use any of the past themes from the last 10 years, or you can case another dirty girl’s card.


My card uses the Best Buds theme …

… and here it is.

I also chose this card as my own fave for this month.
I love it because of the colours, the gorgeous papers and sweet image.
I rather like the layout as well.

The image is LOTV  Milly - Me & My Dog.
I have to confess that I cannot for the life of me find the list of Copics that I used, I'm ever so sorry.
If I do come across it I’ll amend this but I have a sneaky feeling that I’ve chucked it out : )



These beautimous papers are all from the latest Lili of The Valley paper pad releases and they are from Up Up & Away and Country Meadow. And just for a change I used of the sentiments from the Sentiments to Fit Scroll set. If they weren't such hard wearing stamps, I’d have worn this set out long ago lol.

You can probably see that I’ve been busy inking and stitching as well.



A bit of fabby habby here.

I used some 16mm Aqua Ruffle Edge Sheer ribbon, some 9mm 9422 Pink Beauty Velvet Berisford ribbon (lush) and topped them off with a 14mm Acrylic Gem. And of course this is all from Mary at The Ribbon Girl.

 

I did the punching and chopping thing with these flowers – I am sooo into making paper flowers at the mo.



I thought the cute lil Joy Crafts Clouds from Dies To Die For  looked fab with the papers : )

 

So that’s me done for today and I’ll be back tomorrow – or verrry soon – with another card to share.

Have a great day and stay cool me darlins!!!

Huggiest of hugs xxx

Oh, this is ever so cute. I'm going to start following by e-mail. Thanks for the inspiration. I just ordered my first LOTV stamps when they were on sale. It'll take an eternity to get to the U.S.A. I can't wait to receive them.
