Well after all those lovely stencils, I felt like gettin’ a bit fussy  for my next project........I’m afraid I do jump around from one style to another. I don’t like to tie myself down lol and I enjoy and respect different styles for different things – how about you?
Anyway 2 more nice things this month, one was a lovely box of treasures I ordered from Live and Love Crafts (LLC), such gorgeousness AND all wrapped up in lovely pink tissue paper for delivery – just makes it feel so special aaaah...............and then Lili of The Valley (LOTV) had a 48 hours sale on some of their stamps so it just HAD to be done eh! Here is one of my little MDF hearts, I’m  getting loved up and ready for Valentines  - ooh steady on lol ! No actually we had some lovely news this week that a sweet young couple we know are getting married – how fab.

So with my brain I was linking things together -  LLC January Challenge is ‘Perfume’ – my favourite perfume is Beautiful by Estee Lauder -  the advert for this perfume was a lovely bride at her wedding – got a LOTV bride stamp and their challenge is ‘Anything Goes’ – Tadaaah!! So it had to be pink as that is the brand’s colouring with a hint of gold, and have roses, lilies and orange blossom as that’s in the perfume.

Happy to hear you were pleased with your order and so glad you made something for this month's LLC challenge. This is actually the first entry so far if I recall it correctly that has also mentioned the smell of a perfume; fab! Gorgeous; I'm sure the happy will become even happier when receiving this lovely heartshaped card!
