Monsters... Fairies.... Bogeye... And more...

I was working hard a few weeks ago to make up some samples for Lili of the Valley and their new product launch on Create and Craft. If you click on the link above, then you will be taken to their website, where you will find oooooooooodles of lovely stuff for a massive 50% off!! What a sale!

If you are fortunate enough to have caught the show already (more showing dates are on their website) then you may well have seen my cards. There were lots of wonderful ideas on the show too, but here are a few of the ones that I made. I hope you like them.

This was my little bag. I made it from an envelope and a strip of cardstock. The papers are all included with your designs in the collection and they correspond with the images brilliantly. The greetings are included too, so really, all you need is your imagination.

Oh my lordy.. I absolutely love pigs, and these two little ladies are no exception. Well, I say they're ladies, but they could well be used for male cards too. I pleated a strip of paper and attached it to the card and finished with buttons.

Now isn't this monkey cute? This is what I absolutely love about the LOTV products, the cuteness. When they first started trading, I remember seeing them up in Harrogate (I think it was) and just needed the fairies, which I think were one of their first sets. My love of their products has never changed as they are so generic and not limited to childrens cards either! I love cute!! Always have.. .always will!

Oh boy this card was so much fun to make.. I know the pictures aren't brilliant but they were on my phone. (too lazy to get my camera out! lol)

This little panda is adorable.. just look at his lickle-ickle eyes.. and his hair-do!
The papers are all included again, so with all the sets that are available you will get a great collection of backing papers to add to your stash, and they are all inter-mingelable (is that a word?? but I'm sure you know what I mean!)

Now finally, how can I end this post without my little cuties? We were out walking yesterday - a long long walk as I was in a majorly bad mood! - and we came across the Barley Field. Well, not so much came across it, because it's always there.. lol.. but we haven't had a venture in there for a few days, and I can't believe how much it's grown!

It was sooo funny to watch Holly bouncing in typical springer style and thoroughly enjoying herself.

Here's a quick pic.. spot the springers!!
Holly is in the background (can you see her?) and our Chunka Munka, Scooby is here at the front.
