Lilac Blossoms

I am exhausted.  So far today, I have done the Silverstone Grand Prix, a mountain stage of the Tour de France, and the Men's Singles Final at Wimbledon.  I'm pooped!!

Honestly, armchair sport is hard work!

Anyhoo, I did have time for some inky play

So, I have used a retired LOTV stamp of Lilac Blossoms
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Those delicious papers are Dovecraft: Berry Burst
and that's it, no die, no sentiment, just very simple layers

There is a LOTV challenge running on Facebook called Summer In The Garden.  I am entering this, although my style doesn't fit with Lili's.  I'm probably speaking out of turn, but do feel it is a shame when a company feels it can dictate how their images should be used by only promoting one look.
C'est la vie.

Right then, tomorrow is the last day for anyone interested in becoming a Little Acorn, so be quick if you would like to be considered.

Oh, and I draw the line at football as well ......!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Crikey you need a sauna and massage to get you fit again, what an exhausting day you have had, bet you'll sleep tonight .

A beautiful image coloured beautifully and great papers to show it off.

Know what you mean about dictating. There are quite a few images I can't digitally colour and that is my love, as you say C'est la vie.

I love your card (in our favo colour) and I like your style. It is pity that CAS cards nowadays are not the ones choosen (the more the better it seems).
