Photo Inspiration At Stampin For The Weekend

Hello there!  It's been another short week again this week with the Bank Holiday but doesn't seem like I had the day off at all, roll on the next one!  We just had a lazy weekend.  Planning on having a lovely lazy day on Saturday this week too, Lili Of The Valley are celebrating their 10th Birthday and they are having an open day.  I'm not going to make it to the shop but they'll be celebrating over on facebook too so I'm planning on getting some images ready to colour while I follow all that's going on there!.  Don't know what the images will turn out like though, I've got a bottle of CAVA and some rose water essence to add to it so there might be a few bits of colouring that go over the line  hic!

Speaking of LOTV, my card today uses another of their gorgeous images.  It's my card for the latest challenge over at

This time it's a fabulous photo inspiration challenge.  We're sponsored for this challenge by the lovely SWEET STAMPS.

This is the photo we had to take inspiration from. I love this photograph, both the images and the colours were just up my street.  Pop on over and enter one of your creations, we love coming to visit your blogs!
