Hi Peeps! Get your wellies out - lots of rain and thunder tonight in this part of West Yorkshire, so a real treat for the garden and hubby's allotment!
Another Lili Of The Valley card to share with you, which I am entering into Challenge 57 - a sketch by Dawny (I made mine into an easel card, hope that's OK!) at
LOTV Thursday Challenge.   I do love these gorgeous images - there's just something irresistible about them!
The image I have used here, reminds me so much of a photo taken 14 years ago of my eldest Granddaughter when she was 4 years old. She is admiring herself in a full-length mirror in my bedroom, with a large straw hat on, a pair of my shoes, and a huge scarf draped around her shoulders!  Ah, happy memories!
Soooo, I have used Copics to colour this little beauty, who I'm sure must be called Grace, and the papers are part of a download kit from Tinker and Co.  The "adorable" stamp is part of the "New Baby" set by Kars, and of course there just had to be a sprinkling of Glamour Dust! The border punch is by Fiskars, Retro Flower punches by EK Success, ribbon from stash.
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxxx

Hi Sylvia. Thunder and rain again tonight so no garden watering, hurray!! I hope Summer returns after it's little break though. I'd got used to the sunshine!!
This is another gorgeous image, those shoes are great and you've coloured her beautifully, yet again. I still haven't played with my copic, maybe tonight and I'll let you know what I think!!
The whole card is just lovely, the heart border works so well doesn't it.
Speak soon,
Hugs Lisax
