Millie

It seems like ages since I've posted but I've been very busy.  Can't really tell you what I've been doing but I seem to be busy.  Why is that?  You are so swamped and busy but when someone asks you what you've been up to, you can't think of a thing!   This little gal is Millie and she's Lili of the Valley's Millie Just for You.  Love those LOTV stamps, their customer service, quick mailing, stamp quality... it's all good!  The sentiment is also LOTV - part of the Messy Messages set.  I used Copics to colour and then added the little flower to the image.  The papers are from a Pink Paisly pad I purchased from One Crazy Stamper (big sale on there right now).  And in case you haven't heard, tonight is the new release at Lili of the Valley and I'll be there shopping, shopping, shopping!

Stamp & Create - Valentine /Love

Sure, sure, Marilyn! "Busy" just means goofing off, doesn't it? ;o)
Love this card! Your image is too sweet! I've not heard of Lili of the Valley before but I must investigate them now! Really like what you did with the little flower, and who doesn't love Pink Paislee? Thanks for sharing!...Nancy :o)
