Guest Designer For LLC

Well good morning! I sure hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend!  We were so lucky that my son got to come in from college and celebrate with us.  First, on Saturday we went to Tom's side of the family and had a great outdoor barbeque and then we spent the night at my parents and had Sunday dinner with them.  It was a nice time with family.  It is always so good when all four of us are together!!!

I have been asked by the awesome girls at Live & Love Crafts if I would be a Guest Designer for their April Challenge.  I am so honored that they asked me!  Have you seen her store???? OMG! If you are in love with all the fun shabby vintage embellishments, then she has the store to go to.

I decided to use one of the adorable new images coming out with Lili of the Valley on April 6th!

You can find the gorgeous Maja Designs Summer Basics at the Live and Love Crafts Store along with the Twinklets and distress inks and other things on this card.  Oh, and she is having a sale until midnight tonight, so hurry and order!!!

The challenge is a bingo card challenge.  I happened to use the top and middle/down row haha!  Great challenge! 

Don't forget April 6th is the new release at Lili of the Valley!!!!!

Thank you so much LLC for having me as a Guest Designer, I really enjoyed the challenge!!

Hugs, Dena

  21. Hi Dena,
    Hope you've been well. I've had a very busy week, hence my late visit. Thank you so very much for joining us @LLC this month. This card is like a shabby chic dream! You couldn't have picked a more perfect stamp, I'm seriously tempted to buy this one now; I love her hair and her Victorian dress. So gorgeous also with the Eiffel Tower and that lace...stunning!

    Thanks n' Hugz,

  22. Congrats on the GD spot, and what a delicious card you created for it - such an adorable image!
