Sneak Peek at Lili's Little Fairies Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!



Happy Thursday, everyone!! I am hoping that you are having a magnificent week! Gosh...I am thinking that my brain is still on LA time and I am having a heck of a time settling back into to NC time!! Or maybe my brain has stopped working in its entirety....lolol!!!!

Today at the Lili's Little Fairies Blog Challenge we have a sweet heart sketch challenge and I designed the sketch...ohhhhhhhhh..one of the most difficult sketches for me to make a card with!!!!Where was my brain???? lolol But there is a magnificent prize from LOTV...so please come on over and join in with us this week!!!!

I made a card and matching gift box for the challenge and I used s SNEAKY PEEKY image from the new colllection at LOTV which I understand will be making its debut on February 20....so save those pennies and set those clocks!!!!



For the set I used Bazzill for the base and single matting, all of the DP is Pion Designs (Thanks so much, Bev) and all panels were machine stitched.....what a chore!!!!! The design of the card is using a Dutch Tri-Fold and I can't remember where I first saw it.....but I am hoping I forgot...lolol. Sewing and chopping 8 panels was enough to drive me NUTZ-er!!!! The sweet image is Party Girl from the upcoming release at LOTV. The image was colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, adding some Prisma Glitter to the balloons and hearts and some peach colored pearl trim to encircle the heart. I used some Sizzix die cuts for the bottom corners with pearls and additional pearls to soften the corners. To finish the front I used a gold cording bow to hold a double heart charm.




On the inside I used a tag from the collection, adding a gold cording bow...and on the wings a couple of Venise lace hearts with a peach pearl medallion. Aren't those papers beautiful????



On the back is just a heart with an organza ribbon bow.




I used the same darling image for the gift box, added some Guipure lace and more peach pearl trim around the box...On the top is a simple bouquet of peach/white organza roses with more pearls.

I hope you like my creation and will decide to join us at the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge to see if you are the lucky one this week!!!

Dear Jacque~

What out-standing projects you shared today! They are truly magnificent! They both just have me looking at them in amazement. I wish I could hear your thinking when you create. Hear your thought process. All of those pearls...fabulous. I can't imagine using all of my pearls on one project! But, your generosity is not just in your "Sweet Stuff" of course...it flows to your art, too...and to friends and others. If you don't have someone in mind for these amazingly beautiful pieces, I would like to suggest that you donate them to one of your favorite charities...or maybe your Mother's for Valentine's Day...and let them auction them off. I am sure they would fetch a nice sum. I hope you don't mind my suggestion. I know you give liberally. These are just so amazing! I want to make sure they are truly appreciated by the buyer. (If you go that route.) And, thank you for yet another over-the-top Sweet Stuff opportunity for us to win so many fabulous items!

He IS Able!
