LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Hello everyone, another thursday and the nights are beginning to draw in so with Christmas not to far on the horizon this weeks challenge at the LOTV Challenge Blog is "Untraditional Christmas". I have gone with the colours and have used BG Indian Summer Papers adding Lilac. Cooured with Promarkers and H20's. Have used MS Gingerbread border punch, Catslife Press Stamp, various leaf punches, a mix of flowers and lots of stickles. The shimmer from the H20's doesn't really show in the photo but the envelope he's holding has lots on.
This weeks prize is a £10 voucher to be spent in the LOTV Shop and with so many gorgeous stamps you wont be stuck for choice.

Heres my list of challenges,

Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Ai Factory - Anything Goes
MAWTT - Christmas
Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge - Clean Up The Dust (H20's in a box, not used for yrs)
Stamp With Fun - Stuffed Animals
Just Cute Bears - Punch It!
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes

Not sure what I'm up to today, but will find some time for blog hopping at some stage. Been one of them weeks where for no explained reason I've just not had much computer time. I did join the gym yesterday, done my workout then came home knackered. Must be my age - LOL.
Love to see your creations at this weeks LOTV Challenge, but for now off to put the kettle on!!
