No flowers!

Hello lovely people,

This might be a bit of a long post as I have lots to tell you, so are you sitting comfortably?  Then I'll begin...

First up, it's Liliday and this week our challenge theme at Lili's Little Fairies  is...
No Flowers

Our wonderful sponsor is Iva Nova Chest with a lovely goodie bag up for grabs :-D

My card is a fairly simple one and I have used hearts to embellish it instead of flowers, which I rather like...I may do this again!

I go back to this stamp time and again as it is such a lovely image and can be used for a number of occasions, hence the slightly non-specific tag!

Card recipe;
DP: Maja Design -Vintage Summer Basics
Scalloped edge: Martha Stewart edge punch
Hearts: cut with Cricut
Ribbon: from stash
Tag: Sentiment tags from LOTV
Pearls: from The Hobby House

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Hair: E44
Her dress/shoes: BG10/11/53
Her hat: E40/41/42
His shirt: BG53/57
His shorts/gloves: E41/42/43
His apron: W4/5/6
His hat: W0/1/3
His boots/tree/shear handles: E44/47
Tree leaves: BG93/96/99
Pot: BG 90/93/96

Now, onto the second part of my post and I have some news to share.  Time change and we Fairies are changing with them.  This will be the last ever challenge as Lili's Little Fairies.  No, please don't be too sad and read on...

We have had a blast as LLF but it is time for a new start so from next week (5th September) we are becoming Crafty Little Fairies and will have a brand new look :-)  Here's a little taster...

Something else new and we think very exciting - we are opening our challenge up for you to use images other than LOTV.  So, you can still use your Lili's and we would love to see them, but you can also use other images too.  How cool is that?  I and the other Fairies will continue to share our love of Lili with you but this does mean more of you will be able to join in the challenges with us.

So, we hope you are as excited about all this as we are and hope to see you next week for the first ever Crafty Little Fairies Challenge!  It's the turn of the Blue Fairies (yes, we get new team names too!) to share their lovely creations but some of the Pink Fairies are so excited that they may just play along too!

If this weeks theme seems tough then just head over to Lili's Little Fairies for some awesome inspiration, then put away those flowers and join in our challenge!

If you need any more incentive to join in, we also have TWO £10 vouchers from LOTV to give away to wish us luck in our new venture - woohoo!

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx

Fab card, Kat! I agree that this image is so lovely and versatile (I loved colouring mine for our last challenge).Your colouring is wonderful, and that bow and the hearts are brilliant embellies.

Hi Kat

I love the hearts as the embellies - what a great idea.

Thank you for dropping by and leaving me some lovely comments.

Have a great week.

I love this image but I think I've only used mine once, must get it coloured in again! Gorgeous card, such lovely papers and fab design :o) Hugs, Lisa x

PS. disappointed with the hair colour - it looks more or less black, not much violet going on!

And just when I get my LOTV stamps out after not using them for a few months lol:( But how exciting we can use any fairy image. I haven't had time to join in with many challenges over the last few months, but I will make sure the new challenge is on my list:)x
And wow what a fab card, love the colours(coloured amazingly) when I first saw the title no flowers I nearly fell off my chair....I don't think I ever do a female card without adding a flower, ok maybe 3or4 or more! But you have pulled this theme of perfectly.... I love it! It is totally gorgeous:) x Oh and a big thank you for your lovely comments that you leave on my blog:) They mean so much to me:) x
