Hanging Out With My Best Friend...

Two posts in one day...I don't know what came over me!! hehe...

I just thought I'd share my latest lil creation with you all and hope you like it!!
I've used another stamp from the newly released Love and Romance collection, over at Lili of the Valley. There's something about their images that just always make me smile and also, they always give me that warm feeling of nostalgia, the feeling of days gone by...they're so adorable!
The stamped image is coloured using Promarkers and I added some ribbon from my stash, together with my handmade paper roses, that match the backing paper. As a finishing touch, I added the die cut branch for this cute couple to be swinging from, a stamped message, which is also from Lili of the Valley. And last but not least, using the Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly punch, I punched out some butterflies and added them.

Hope you all have a wonderful week and a big hello to all my new followers!! Thank you so much for choosing to follow me and please don't be shy...come and say hello!!
See you soon!
Love Emma

  1. I love the little handmade roses that you have added to this card, they finish it off nicely. Loving your work! :-)

  2. hahaha...two post in one day is a treat! :D

    ...and what a lovely treat it is to see this card! beautiful backing paper and ribbon along with some equally beautiful flowers and butterflies!

    but certainly the star of the show is the SUPER CUTE Lili of the Valley stamp! I'm sure this image has been repeated in real life millions of times all over the world and the emotions are captured perfectly here!

    An absolutely wonderful card...I LOVE IT! :D <333

  3. Another very pretty card - love the image which is beautifully coloured. The handmade roses are fab I wouldn't ever think to match them with the DP but don't they look great?

    Love Lynda xxx

  6. Lovely!! Thanks for playing with us at WOC ♥

  7. Gorgeous, gorgeous! Those roses are stunning, thank you for playing along with us at the LOTV challenge blog!

  8. Hi Emma
    This is one of my favourite cards that you have made - a difficult thing to say because all your cards are gorgeous. What is the backing paper?
    I can't understand why you are in awe of Dawn Bibby. My husband (who is very patient at watching videoed craft shows when I return from work) reckons she is 'lick 'em and stick 'em'!!! Even he recognises your work on Clarity shows and says your cards are very elegant and clean.
    Are you going to the NEC?
    Cheers for now, Kirsty
