LOTV Dandelion Clock

Happy New Year 
Good Morning Everyone, 
I hope you all enjoyed bringing in the new year last night and that you are not suffering too much this morning. My hubby was working a night shift, so it was just me and the kids...very quiet!
I've been a bad blogger again! I'm afraid I've been in and out of hospital again. Luckily everything is now sorted and I'm hoping for a very healthy 2018! Unfortunately, with all the stress and worry, I have completely lost my crafting mojo, so this card is the very last one I had in my unposted folder! 
I have used one of the gorgeous older stamps from Lili of the ValleyThis is 'Dandelion Clock '

I've coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings. The background papers are from Lemoncraft.
I've used a Die-namics flower die from the Blueprints 14 set and a sentiment tag from LOTV.

Thank you for all your support during 2017 and I look forward to visiting all your blogs over the coming year. I wish you all a very healthy, happy and crafty 2018.
