Lilis Little Fairies DT Piece!!

Happy New Year everyone. I'm back to crafting and this is my first piece not only of the year, but also our first challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies. When the LOTV Challenge shut down, Jacqui couldn't let all you Lilli of the Valley fans down as it was such a popular challenge so today we see our first challenge and this weeks theme is "New Beginnings". I opted to make a calendar to  mark the start of the New Year. Didn't over embellish as the colours are so pretty and think they stand out all by themselves. I'm now on my new Windows PC after using a MAC for several years. The screen looks so different and I keep fiddling with my display lol.

So pop on over to the new Lili's Little Fairies Challenge blog and see what gorgeous creations the rest of the DT have made. Some of us are from the LOTV Challenge but we have lots of new teamies who cards are just gorgeous.

Heres a few challenges;
Simon Says - New Something
House of Gilli - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
City Crafter - Save the Date
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Challenge - Anything Goes
Just Tracys - Love is in the Air
Allsorts - New Beginnings
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Crafters Companion - Love is in the Air
Cupcake Craftroom - Anything Goes
By the Cute & Girly - New Beginnings

.Cant wait to catch up with your blogs and back again soon with another post. I've been so good and not bought any new stash (as yet). Wonder how long that will last -hmmm..... lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
