Lili's Little Fairies (DT) Inspiration Photo

Morning everyone - it is an earlier start for Liliday today, and hopefully this will remain as the new going-live time for the challenges at LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES.

Sorry I have not been around much lately - I have a lot going on behind the scenes, and my already fragile crafting confidence took rather a large knock recently and that has taken the wind out of my sails more than expected. It has even raised the old "why do I bother" question but it's because I love it so I shall carry on I suppose.

Anyhoo on a much happier note, over at Lili's this week we have an Inspiration Photo for you to have a look at and hopefully be inspired by!

This is just so pretty - I wish my garden looked like this

Here is my DT card

I have used the Foxgloves stamp from the last LOTV release
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Papermania - Lucy Cromwell design collection
Nesties, Martha Stewart border punches and an LOTV Scroll Sentiment

Simple, but still pretty I think

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Oi you, listen here, your cards are fantastic, every single one of them is amazing, and if you even consider stopping making them i will have to find you and bat you with a piece of styrofoam until you change your mind! Anyone who says your cards are anything less than beautiful are delusional liars or clearly don't know what they're talking about :)

This card is sooo beautiful, the colours are gorgeous, and I love the little double sided border - just fab! :D

Feel better soon!

Gorgeous Squirrel. Love your colouring and the lovely choice of colours.

Not sure why anyone would think your cards are less than fabulous. I'm sure all your loyal followers would soon slap down someone who disagrees with us! As for numbers I hate it when people leave. I often feel as if there's no one out there or why do people visit and not comment. Is my work that bad? It probably is!

Honey, your card is BEAUTIFUL. Whatever, or whoever, has knocked your confidence should not be listened to. I know I am not alone in loving your designs and this one is no exception. I also love the papers. I have bought this set of papers 3 times now and love every sheet of each pad.
