Our October Top 5

 

 

Morning all, what are you up to over the weekend? Something nice and crafty I hope!

I have our Top 5 today from the October challenge, as always it was so difficult to choose just 5

We had a record number of entries last month and changed our minds several times over which were our favourites, you are all very clever and there were some beautiful cards

Here they are in entry order;

Our first choice is entry 13 from Katie

Katie made this beautiful shaped card using one of our 10th Birthday Fairy stamps, this cutie is called Midsummer's Night

*

Next is number 24 which is by Julie

This is such an unusual layout, Julie used our Lazy Afternoon stamp which is the perfect image for a retirement card

*

Jeanet gets our next Top 5 slot with her lovely tri-fold baby card…

This is our Baby Boy stamp, we also do a matching Baby Girl so you could do a pink one too for a girl

*

Entry 85 is by Helene

This lovely card has a real vintage feel to it and I love the muted colours.

Sadly this James In The Snow stamp is discontinued and has now sold out but we do have quite a few other seasonal stamps featuring him

*

…and our final spot goes to entry 103 from Louise

We like to see our products being used for other things than just cards and Louise made these pretty place tag holders with the Bonnets & Bowties papers and a selection of girlie stamps. This is a lovely project, they would be great for your  Christmas table and I can feel my mojo stirring with ideas as I type!!

*

So those are our top picks, we had about 20 favourites as always but sadly could only pick 5. Well done ladies please email me for your blog banner anne@liliofthevalley.co.uk
