my favorite Lizzie Anne set is....

so, any guesses what my favorite Lizzie Anne set is? When Tricia and Meridith asked what our favorite sets were my first answer was "all of them!" LOL! I seriously love them all, but we had to narrow it done to one. I had to pick my very first Lizzie Anne set I ever got. The set that has become my go-to set for any occasion... Jolies Fleurs. With a mix of paisleys and flowers this set has so many possibilities. Do you love this set also? Stop by the Lizzie Anne Designs and pick it up today for 40% off!



I created todays card to show you one of my favorite ways to use those paisley stamps. I love the look of them as leaves. Simply add a bit of stitching down the center and you have a really quick, fun leaf.



Here's a close-up of the flowers colored in with the Koh-i-noor pencils and baby oil.

Don't forget about the Birthday Sketch Contest going on now at Lizzie Anne Designs. Be sure to stop over at the LAD blog for all the details.
