Good morning Lili fans, and welcome to another Lili's Little Fairies Challenge. Once again it is team B's turn to host the challenge, and we hope you'll be able to join us this week. Thanks to everyone who joined in last week - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you are the winner.
This week's challenge theme is
Peaches & Cream
Pretty or what??
I'm running late today, so please do check out the main challenge blog for details of this week's fabby prize and inspiration from the rest of the DT.
Here is my card for this week.
As you can see I've gone in a rather different direction for me, and certainly for LotV. I have had this stamp (which is meant to be a background stamp) in my collection for 2 or 3 years and never used it before, but this time it just somehow beckoned to me, helped by the fact that I didn't have a single piece of peach coloured paper in the house with which to make a cutie card!!
Stamps: LotV "Grunge Letter" and "Everyday Grungy messages";
Media: Tim Hotz "tea dye", " marigold" and "antique linen" distress inks;
Paper: Papermania "Vintage Notes";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; berries and cheesecloth fromThe Ribbon Girl; pearl hearts from The Hobby House; ribbon from Hobbycraft; doily, lace and pearl brad from my stash;
Tools: Simon Says "Meadow Rue" die.

Last but not least, don't forget that Lili of the Valley is having it's 9th birthday celebration this weekend with an Open Day at the shop in Farsley plus competitions on the Ideas To Inspire blog and Facebook. I'm hoping to go with a friend for my first ever visit to the shop ... I'm really excited and saving my pennies!!
As I won't have time to make another birthday-special card (I'll be at work til Friday and then out visiting the shop all day Saturday) I'd also like to enter this card into the LotV 9th Birthday card competition - hope they really will have a day filled with sunshine !! :-)
Have a great week and look forward to seeing your creations.
