MIM#169 Little Girl Framed - with Lili of the Valley

Another week has sped past and I'm starting to get anxious about getting all my housework sorted out for Christmas. I haven't been able to bend down (my back is gradually getting better) so have got lots to do still (mainly putting craft gear away for a while and hopefully being able to find it all again, LOL).
It's Monday and that always means the start of a new linky party at Make It Monday blog
Our sponsor is Lili of the Valley this week and the team have come up with some fabulous projects to inspire you with. For my card, I kept it fairly simple, not using a sentiment and letting the image and the lovely frame speak for themselves. I think this card would be suitable for quite a few occasions, Birthday, Thankyou, Valentines, Thinking of You etc.
A busy weekend for me postwise, I would love it if you scrolled down and checked out my previous post for 613 Avenue Create using a Rick St. Dennis image.
Well that brings me to congratulating our featured artist, Bethie  J and also our winner, Debs M from last week's entries. I do hope you enjoy your prize. Don't forget to grab a badge too.
Here is my card to share, I managed to get the inside done too this time around so there's a pic of that also.

 Inside of card....... Plenty of room to add a sentiment later

 This first one is a collapsible box that you can post - check it out at Crafting Passions. Nancy shares how to make it too!!! You can find it here


My second choice is this one by Julie at Rainbow Days. A lovely colour themed card in blue and white. You can check it out here . I love that little pop of colour on the daisy.


Time for me to go and get dressed!!! have breakfast and wait for my little grandson to arrive for me to look after. He is such a cutie, but a bit of a ratbag at home at times. A typical 2 year old!
