It's A First!

Morning all.  Yes, I am posting live at 10.15.  No, I'm not at work this week. Yes, I am on holiday!!  Whoop whoop.  Toad is on hollibobs too for a much needed break from the hamster wheel.

I have a first for you today.  You may, or may not, have noticed the rather obvious logo at the top of my side bar.  I am now a member of the Lili of The Valley Design Collective!!  It came as a surprise to me too, having missed out on the original selection, but a vacancy came up and it was offered to me.  It would have been rude to say no wouldn't it!

Anyhoo, here is my first Design Collective outing:

So, the ingredients for this are:
Lili of The Valley stamp - The Potting Shed
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are LOTV/Nitwits - Country Lady
Sentiment from LOTV clear set - Handwritten Phrases
Flower punch is a Woodware one, with Card Candi centres
Twine from stash
Banner die from Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners

The weather forecast for today isn't fantastic so I might have a little crafty session this morning.  Toad wants to go to the seaside this afternoon but I had heard "gales expected on exposed coasts" so that should make for a bracing experience!

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Squee! So happy for you! And for them as they picked the right Squirrel for the job!!! This is a such a sweet card. Those LOTV mice are a busy bunch, aren't they?

Colouring sounds like the much better option than braving gale force winds!

And I can't tell you how excited I am that you are joining us on the LOTV Design Collective....WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!

These little mice are adorable and your design is fab - love the twine detail :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
