Favourite LOTV stamp and grateful thanks.

This week over at Lili's Little Fairies the challenge is 'Favourite LOTV stamp'. I think that this may be my all time favourite stamp of any make - I just love this girl's attitude. This is going to be my daughter in about 4 years time!!! Thankfully, I was organised enough to make this card before this blasted pain started!

How gorgeous are these Papermania Portobello Road papers? Now, Fairy Elise laughed when I said this, but, these papers made me think of the Sex Pistols which encouraged me to go for the distressed look! It's the Union Jack thing, Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm McLaren - you see where I was going don't you? Hmmm.

The Union Jack ribbon is also Papermania - gorgeous isn't it? The bunting is a Whimsy Stamps 'banner' die. The bakers twine and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I distressed pretty much everything with antique linen and walnut stain distress ink. The image is coloured with copics.

It's been a rough old week and I wanted to say a big thank you to my blogging buddies for sending get well wishes. Extra special thanks to Edna and Hazel who are also not feeling great but took the time to send hugs. I'm so grateful, your warm wishes are a boost to morale and keeping me going at the moment.

Don't forget to join us over at Lili's Little Fairies - there's great candy from the Ribbon Girl to be won!

Hope that you all have a great week, big fairy hugs, Jayne xx

It's brilliant - love all the red, white and blue. Might have to look at that banner die, I've wanted one for ages and can never find it, and then I forget until I see it used again!! Age.

No thanks necessary, but gratefully received nevertheless. lol I've started my second day of tablets so I'm expecting a miracle any time about now. Hazel x

Hope you are feeling a wee bit better each day.

Great Card, I will have to get this image. Those papers are fab too, they would be great for blokiee cards, which are normally a bit of a challenge.
Thanks for the kind comments you left on my blog and I hope you feel better soon.
Lorry :o) xx
