LOTV Christmas Girl~

Hi All~

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.

Hi Debbie,
Firstly, apologies for my absence, I'm still playing catch up and visiting all my favourite blogs!
Beautiful LOTV Christmas card, super sweet image and I love the colours - lilacs and pinks always being a firm favourite for me.
Hope your hubby isn't too bad in the morning!
Did you enjoy Harrogate? It's my favourite craft show so I save my pennies all year for the two visits. Tell me please, is Sunday as busy as Saturday?
Have a great weekend.
