LOTV DT Card (New Releases) & Challenges



Today we have a brand new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog. Another brilliant sketch by Bev. I have used todays NEW RELEASES called Christmas Animals and 2 other really cute stamps "Back To School". This is called Cracking Christmas. He's been coloured with Promarkers and stickled. The papers are KaiserCraft - Dear Santa Collection. I found them in a draw, uncut. Love them!!! The tag is another thing I found lying in a draw. Its amazing what I come across. Must of bought all this at some stage but I don't remember. Shows I've got way too much stash and will never get threw it all but needs must..........
Quite a simple card and for once no flowers but think this would also be suitable for a man to.
The rest of the LOTV DT have also made gorgeous cards. You need to check them out via the LOTV Challenge Blog so you can see more from the NEW RELEASES. The Christmas Animals Stamps + 2 Back To School Stamps can be purchased at the LOTV SHOP.
Heres my usual list of challenges that this card fits into. Nearly 170 on my sidebar now so you can image how long it takes me to type up each post.

Creative Cottage - Christmas
Anything Goes - 3 Layers (3 layers papers on card)
ASFOS - Christmas

I've also got candy to post. I forgot to do it last week so promise to post it shortly. Just need to get a piccie to pop on my blog.
Well thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Hoping for a quiet day indoors today. Its a toss between catching up with my sky+ or crafting, but know doubt I'll find time for some blog hopping.

Thanks for looking and I really do appreciate all the comments I receive. A great boost when I need it!

Cute card, love the new image and how you used it.
I also had the same problem with a message that was sent apparently from me which I didn't send and I am an AOL user myself, I contacted AOL who said the person had not hacked my AOL account but had managed to set up a copy account on another internet provider posing as myself so am guessing this could be the same for yourself.
