LOTV Seak peak & WOC Blog candy



Wild Orchid Crafts and Lili Of The Valley have teamed up to host a

'Christmas In July Party'.

Starting today Monday 18th July for a week long of Christmas creations made by the Wild Orchid Crafts Design Team, the Lili Of The Valley Design Team and a few Guest Designers.

These creations will be featured on the
Wild Orchid Crafts Blog
LOTV Ideas To Inspire Blog

and also daily on the featured Designers Blogs.

You won't want to miss this as you will see sneak peeks of the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas release and the new Christmas Goodies from Wild Orchid Crafts.




This is the outside of the envelope card where I've used the 'Baubles' image, I've closed the flap with a brad and a photograph hinge or  whatever you call them!!  The image is coloured in Copics and the baubles were given a coat of  glossy accents. I think I will re-photgraph these and contrary to the norm the camera has picked up too much of the glossy accents - 'Sod's law' at work (lol).


Here is the inside of the card, and I've used the new Lili Of The Valley Christmas image 'Oh Christmas Tree' - isn't it just sooo sweet!!! My papers are some left over from last year and I haven't a clue who they are by!! The  Magnolia Doohickey swirls are coated with Glamour dust - the pears clusters are sent to me by my adorable friend America.
The label is a Cuttlebug fancy tags and I have threaded through this a tag cut with a Go Create die to write on. I've used  Lili Of The Valley stamps for both the corners and the beautiful sentiment.

The beautiful Wild Orchid flowers

Lili Of The Valley  peek:  "Christmas Baubles" and "Oh Christmas Tree"


I have two lots of Blog candy for you - the Lili of the Valley image I've used and the pack of Wild Orchid crafs Christmas flowrs. Leave a comment to be in with a chance to win - winners will be chosen 
on the 28th July.

I live in Kazakhstan and here some of the google features don't work, one of them is the comment box when is a pop up window (as in your blog), so I can´t leave comment in your post. If possible I would like to participate in your candy :)
Thanks in advance,
