Lili Of The Valley Challenge Card

Ever since I received my Kimi & Miki prize I have been so excited to used them! So today I have used them for the Lili Of The Valley challenge sketch which was created by Donalda. (fab sketch Donalda!!!) As you can see this is another one for my Christmas card pile, I don't often use blue so this has made a nice change for me!All of the papers are Lili Of The Valley backing papers and of course the die cut Miki is also Lili Of The Valley. The snowflake brads are by Papermania and the larger snowflake is by Imaginise. I have used my sewing machine for the stitching and my machine has now been thrown head first back in the cupboard as it was being very naughty today!!!! So I'll pretend I was going for the patchworkie wonky effect then I might just get away with it!!! The greeting is by Craftwork cards and the little snowballs are from the die cut sheet.

Finally there is still no news on Arthur, I'm not going to put this at the bottom any more as I find it upsetting and I am trying to make my cards and blog as an escape from the real world! You will all be one of the first to know if I have any further news on him. xxx
