LOTV Sneaky Peeky and WINNER WINNER!


Happy Monday, everyone!!! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and are ready for a great week!

The LOTV New Girlie Release is just HOURS away now!!!! Today at midnight is the BIG DAY over at LOTV!!!! All 16 of the brand new super-cute girlie-girlie stamps will be out TONIGHT at Midnight UK Time...and you better count the time off on your fingers so you can get them on these little darlings soon, soon, soon!!! They are so cute that you can bet they will be whizzing out very fast!!!

For my card I have used cute little Maisie with her Two Big Balloons who looks like she is ready for a happy event no matter what it is! The base and all double matting are Bazzill, the DP is from the BG Life of the Party Collection, and all background panels are machine stitched. She was colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles to the balloons before cutting her out with double Nesties. I found 2 balloon buttons in my stash and tied them with Orange Divine Twine from Wild Orchid Crafts. For the horizontal I used a dotted satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow to anchor the two balloons. To complete the front I used WOC Mulberry Paper Blooms centered with large half pearls.

The inside is quite simple because the DP is so bright and cheerful!

So tonight is the BIG NIGHT to get your inky hands on these LOTV cuties!!!

MORE NEWS: There are several NEW things at Wild Orchid Crafts that I'm sure you will want to have a peek at. I have already placed my order for some of ALL of these!!! Decorative Metal Corners in a smaller size are just beautiful and certainly add elegance to your cards! Raffia Ribbon in 10 lovely colors can be used in so many ways on your creations and ties into bows so beautifully! And last but not least by any means are the absolutely gorgeous Vintage/Antique Metal Embellishments which you have to see to believe how pretty they are!!

WINNER....WINNER!!!

The WINNER of the LOTV Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments is...

Margo from Belgium

AND the WINNER of the LOTV For You Circular Sentiment Set is...

Hi Sweet Jacque~

I love this card, even though it isn't my typical colors. Those balloons are great...a perfect find! This little girl...FABULOUS!!! She is so demure...I love how you colored her. I am, however, FLIPPING OUT with EXCITEMENT over that orange people paper or is it fabric? I LOVE IT! Do you happen to recall where you found it? I think that could make orange become one of my new colors! I am always looking for things with kids holding hands...in long lines...it kind of represents all of the children of the world together...in peace! (I know, I am a corn-ball!) And, I love all of the white space on the inside...I like to write a lot...and that orange-polka dot bow is wonderful. I am loving orange on this card!!!

Congratulations to the winners of all of the goodies! Have fun with them!
