Lovely Lilies'


Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, nice and bright but  a bit chilly here today.  Hubby and me popped down to Folkestone on the bike, went for a potter about down there and watched the world go by!  Nice way to chill for a couple of hours.

I have made another LOTV card today and in my fav colour Pink!  (again sorry)!  But really I have an excuse as its my National Craft Month entry over at LOTV and the theme is pink, goodie!!!!!  Mucked the dress up as I attempted pleats, errr very difficult, does anyone know where there is a tutorial for pleats.  I ended up just going over the whole lot in dark pink to try and cover it up so looks a bit pants,  never mind I will keep practising!

Stamp  Lovely Lilies ' LOTV
Colouring medium  - Copics
Papers, EP country drive and I think the Rose one is papermania (I found a scrap)!
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studio
Punches - X-cut Daisy border punch
Nesties - Circle and scallop circle
Flowers - WOC
Lace ribbon, button, gems and bits and pieces from stash

I would like to enter into
 Paper Sundaes - Spring blossoms

Looking forward to the Dancing On ice final tonight, all 3 are fab but I would like to see Georgie win.  
Hope you have a great week

Sounds like you had a lovely day sweetie. I dont know about any tutorials for pleats I just keep practicing at mine, sometimes it can be better learning from your own mistakes. I think the dress looks fabulous tho shug
