It's all about the girls at LIIU

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  I hate to mention it but what dreadful weather we have had in the UK this past few days.  My heart goes out to all those who have been affected by all this rain and the floods.  My youngest daughter came home on the train from Manchester last night as it is her sister's birthday tomorrow.  Even that journey took her six hours instead of the normal three.  Surely we must be due for some sunshine soon lol.
I am still trying to play catch up since my return from holiday.  My apologies if I have not been over to your blog yet.  I will get caught up eventually.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Let's Ink It Up.  Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Magnolia-Licious.

And the prize is this gorgeous Snowman with Snowflakes stamp.  Just lovely for all those christmas projects.

So without further ado our challenge for this month is:


Think flowers, ribbon, lace, pearls etc.  I think this will be quite an easy challenge for lots of you out there so hope you will pop over to LIIU and upload your projects.  While you are there check out the awesome creations of the design team.  Just remember that NO DIGI IMAGES are permitted at LIIU.

Here is my inspiration for you.

I used a lovely Crafters Companion stamp from the SWALK range for my creation.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and cut out with a scalloped circle die.  I matted this onto a doily which I lightly inked with distress inks.  The papers are First Edition and are just gorgeous.  Lots of matting, layering and distressing.  All the flowers were spritzed with glimmer mist and lightly glittered.  I added some ribbon and a double bow, some pins and a little wooden butterfly.  The sentiment came as part of the stamp set.  This card is actually going to my eldest daughter tomorrow as it is her birthday.

Hope this had got your creative juices flowing and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffet - Sparkle
Sir Stampalot - Whats your crafty passion (stamping, flowers, distressing)
Card Makin Mamas - Rubber
Whimsy Stamps - Anything goes
Ribbon Girl - Girlie card
LEJ Designs - Fabulous flowers

Take care and thanks for popping by.

Great card Mags, and I love that cheeky image. Hope the rain stops soon for you - it's just cold here; we could do with a good soak - none really since early June.
