Lili's Little Fairies

Hello chaps!  Hope you are all well.  Sorry if my visits have been ultra-brief or non-existent this week, I am trying hard to get to you all but I am now realising just how much I relied on the laptop for blogging!  Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I can persuade Toad to part with some cash to get a new one as I am starting to getting bloggy withdrawals.

Well, it is Liliday today and the LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES challenge this week is Anything But Square.  Team B are in charge this week so no DT card from me but I do hope you will still find time to pop over and join in the fun.

Even though I don't have a DT card for you, I do have a Lili card to share:

It was my best mate Ali's birthday on Monday and she just adores LOTV bears, so this one fitted the bill perfectly.

For this card I have used:
He has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sorry, forgot to keep a list of colours this time
Papers are all First Editions but from a mixture of pads
Whimsy corner dies, Martha Stewart border punch, Crafty Devils pearls
And the sentiment is LOTV from the Happy Circular Sentiments set

I just realised that it will be 1 February tomorrow, so only 13 days to the start of Lent.  I always try and give up something and I image that it will be spending on craft items again (trust me, this is a huge sacrifice).  But it does mean that by Easter my bank balance will look a bit healthier - and what better reason than to share it with you by way of a Spring Candy - keep an eye out, I will post the details soon.

Hugs, Sxx
