...and the last challenge winner is....

Hi everyone,
Apologies; I've got so much going now as the closure of the LLC store is just around the corner that I hadn't gotten around to drawing a winner from the last LLC challenge, but here we go;
As the saying goes; the third time is a charm!!! :-)
(This was the 3rd entry submitted by our randomly picked winner)

Congratulations Beth please contact me, Sandy, to claim your prize.

At this point I'd like to thank everyone who took part in the last LLC challenge, and of course also to all challenge participants over the years. It's been great fun; I hope you've enjoyed the ride as much as I and the LLC DT have. 

It's not Good Bye just yet; will be back with the last Challenge Top Picks in a couple of week's time...
Until then,
Sandy xxx

Congratulations Ladies!

Christmas Ballerina

Hello hello everyone and happy Sunday!

Here I am from Italy with a new, odd Christmas card!

One of my mother's friends asked it for her lovely granddaughter who loves dance and is a super lovely ballerina!


Colour and image are not traditional, but I hope you liked it the same!

Have a lovely Sunday everybody...

  a BIG hug,

Hello, friends! It's Karen here with my last post for LLC. Although I remain heartbroken at LLC's closure, I am excited for the new adventures that await our fearless leader! Thank you for having me, Sandy! It has been an honor to create for and alongside you. ♥️
I have paired my favorite papers from Maja Design's Vintage Romance with whimsical Wycinanka chippies to send sparkly wishes to a heart in need of hope. ♥️
My beloved Wycinanka fairy appears yet again... I have now used 5 of the 6! They are gorgeous and I adore them sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage. She rests atop a Castle Frame chippie, which has been painted with Distress Crackle Paint. The greeting is from the Make a Wish phrase. The stunning trims consist of Tulle and Marquisa, which are topped with a pearl string bow.

It is safe to say that LLC created my addiction to trims. ♥️
Pomegranate apples add a splash of bright pink love within the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, while the gorgeous French Lace doily adds an extra layer of softness. 

Thank you everyone for the kindness you've shown me and I wish you a magical weekend! ♥️

Hugs and blessings,
