It's week #120 over at I LOVE PROMARKERS and this week the theme is all about little girls. Sugar and spice and all things nice!!!! Hmmmmm, maybe lol. Anyway, you have to make a card (or other project) for a little girl. Our sponsor is LILI OF THE VALLEY and the prize is a £10 gift certificate.

I had a little trouble with this card. First off, I don't have any LOTV stamps, so a google search sent me to ebay and found me a pack of 20 that had been a free gift in a magazine some time ago. God knows what card they've been printed on, but it's appalling and certainly no good for Promarkers. The colours bled really badly and it took me an absolute age to lift all the mess with my blender pen. It's also a little TOO pink methinks, lol.

I have used dies by Memory Box and Cheery Lynn and the papers are from a pad that a friend bought me 4½ years ago for my baby Granddaughter layouts. Some flowers, ribbon and pearls finished it off.

Entering into:

OLDIE BUT A GOODIE - Anything goes. (papers are over 4 years old)
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Anything goes.
CRAFTY BOOTS - Anything goes.

MAKE IT MONDAY #92 - Anything goes.
MAKE MY MONDAY #52 - Birthday with pearls.
OOH-LA-LA CREATIONS #106 - Make it girly.
CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE #19 - Die cuts and punches.
