Lili of the Valley Me and my cat

Hiya folks :),

So I know you haven't noticed but I have been away to a little cottage in Drenthe (still The Netherlands) for a week :). I did have some time to craft there though so I'll have a couple of cards to show you in the next few days (I have colored the images but still have to make the cards). Here is my first one using this very cute Lili if the Valley stamp called Me and my cat:I am very sorry to say that I completely forgot to take down the Copics I used on this image or the others I colored while away in Drenthe, I'll try to take notes the next time I start coloring. All papers and ribbons are from stash and the layout was completely insprired by THIS fabulous creation by someone I admire very much (and read every blog post of) Paula Tracey. Now if you haven't heard about Paula or every been to her blog you really shouldn't just look at the card I shamelessly copied but look at her entire blog HERE, Paula's coloring belongs amongst the best out there and the way she makes her card I always feel like she frames her gorgeously colored images. I had to try one of her layouts to see if it would work for me as well. Anyway, here is the image I colored:
Hope you like my little card, the picture was taken on a gorgeous pine tree (hope that's the right name for the tree ( :) ), outside of our cottage. That's it for this short post (I've got a lot a lot of unpacking to do and my hubby and I are sharing a gorgeous bottle of wine (I'm a real wine lover for those of you who didn't know, please excuse any misspellings in this post, it's due to the two glasses I already enjoyed :) ). Have a great day everybody and I'd love to read you comments!!!

Take care! Be back soon!

  14. Hi Mariska, De North Pole stempel die je op mijn LOTV kaart zag is van Little Yellow Bicycle. Hij zit in een kleine kerstset. Ik dacht misschien wil je dat weten :-) Fijne dag verder!
