Sweet Lili for Lisa!

Hello!  I did so badly at getting Christmas cards out that I'm starting early on my valentines!!  This is one I made for my friend, Lisa Kind over at Kind Creations! We met for a little crafting retail therapy and snacks yesterday!  Check out her link!  She is one of those consistently great creators and so nice, too!  She has a challenge on her blog today to use felt on your creations!  Great idea!
 I used High Hopes, Lili Mouse to show off my new (grand) window die!  I'm in love with these dies!!  I keep checking to see how many more images that have can be used int he window!  Lili has an oak leaf in her hand making her a bit 'fallish' in appearance.  I chose to cover the leaf with some fern punches and tiny hearts for flowers (ala Kittie747).  I used a Cheery Lynn tree die outside the snowy window and an MS heart punch to make a lacy curtain!  I told Lisa I still think it looks a bit plain on top and maybe I should have punched an SU oval for a sentiment!
I am lovin' the pinks lately and in this case used RV04, RV17 and RV19 for her bow and dress.  I also used a little RV10 for blending and in her ears/nose.  Her fur is E31, E34. E55 and a touch of E57.  I just realized I should have used a little white pen on her eye dots and some black glossy for her eyes! Oh, well!  I did remember to give her bow some sparkle with Star dust stickles.
The window is cut from Sahara Sand and sponged with same.  The card base is Kraft, stamped with a Hero Arts background in Soft Suede.  The dp is from a Bo Bunny pad and the pink is PTIs raspberry Fizz.
I think that covers the whole card.  Lili is rounded and raised for a 3D look!
Thank you for coming by today!
I wish you health, happiness and prosperity in 2012!!

I have to say that while this card looks pretty here, it's absolutely gorgeous in person! The picture does not do it justice! Cheryl's cards are always so so pretty! Thank you so much for this and your other gifts! It was so nice getting together like that. I hope the weather stays as nice so we can get together again soon! Happy New Year my friend!
