LOTV...mini blog hop with Milly.

Hi...it's mini blog hop time today
with LOTV and we are all
using the very sweet "Milly Hello"
just love Milly with her cute kitty :)

 
a bit of a simple make,
 i have stamped Milly with 
Staz On-Stone Grey
and coloured with Distress markers,
the little sentiment
is from the Calendars stamp set. 
love this new Nestabilities 
Fancy Ribbon Threader die,
the paper is BasicGrey-raspberry jam,
the corners are just little photo ones,
a few buttons/threaded some lace 
and added a little heart charm.

For a chance to win one of our prizes
hidden along the way...

 the following DT blogs please...

hope you have a lovely day too.
thanks for stopping by,
hugs all,Lou.xxxxxx

Hi Lou - this is cute, I used to have a ginger cat called Marmalade! I love this die as well, I have it but have never used it. Well not yet! The buttons and the little charm are really great additions.

I must thank you for your comments on my blog and for letting me know about the flower. I hadn't realised it was Blossom Three. Methinks I don't experiment enough with my dies - I buy them then stick to the old favourites!

Hugs to you Sue P xx
