LOTV DT Card & Challenges!


Today over at the LOTV Challenge we have another gorgeous sketch made by the lovely Bev for you to work with. Here is my take using "All Wrapped Up" which is one of the new Christmas Releases. Coloured with Copics and Stickles. Paper are Basic Grey. Got a collection of the new Viva Pearl & Glitter Pens
so you will be seeing these used alot on my cardmaking. Background stamps are a new set I just got from Paper Artsy. I have a box full of these somewhere as I was more of an altered girl when I started out but think they blend perfectly with the cute side as well.

Good News - As of now, the LOTV Challenge will be going back to being a weekly challenge blog so you'll have more chances to play with your gorgeous stamps.
Don't forget the winner gets 2 LOTV stamps but you do need to use LOTV stamps or die cuts to be eligible.

I took my card in the garden to be photographed yesterday, This was before the heavens opened!
The rest of the DT have also made some cracking cards. We would love it of you could join in our weekly challenge.

Here are a few challenges that this card fits into;

Creative Inspiration - Anything Goes
Crafty CardMakers - Punches(snowflake,border & leaves)
Ai Factory - Christmas in July
Pennys Challenges - Anything Goes
MAWTT - Christmas
Our Creative Corner - Christmas in July

Now I have a box full of new stamps that are waiting to be inked up, so wont be long before I'm back with another card and I'm just waiting on another piece then I will post my blog candy.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.......
