LOTV Christmas Girl~
I said I would be back tonight and here I am!
Hubby will be well under way drinkin' his beer at the Beer Festival, hope he is not hungover in the morning. Is it just me or are men a bit on the Pathetic side when they have a headache!!!
Tonight I have had a good old craft. Did a spot of Scrapbooking, made a couple of gift bags and managed to finish this LOTV card too.....'Cor I need a Blue Peter Badge me thinks!! (Would settle for a sober hubby!! Lol)
Tonights card is for a couple of challenges, and is to add to my Christmas Card stash. In about 90 days I am going to need this card!! (Sorry)
Over on LOTV challenge they wanted an Untraditional Christmas Colour Card, so I think Lilac is ok for that, and as it happens Crafts 4 Eternity wanted Lilac and Lace, as well as this lovely sketch. So all good.
I adore this LOTV image and it was one of the stamps on my list for the Harrogate show, glad I managed to get it, she looks so sweet with her big Russian hat on and walking her dog (I think the dog looks a bit like a Dachshund, and that suits me as my friend Angie has a gorgeous boy Dachshund called Oscar, he loves me and is a big softy, wanting kisses all the time, he is gorgeous).
As you can see I have done some mock stitching with a white gel pen, added a few flower brads to the border strip. The lacey bits are all paper doily's.
The card is co-ordinates and I have used a sheept of paper from a magazine.
I really enjoyed making this, and as I have all the exact components but in a pinky colour, I may replicate this one again to add to my stash of Christmas Cards.
