LOTV DT Card & Challenges!!!!

(looks better bigger, click on piccie)

Thanks to all who took part in last weeks challenge. There were some beautiful cards. But today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog, and this weeks theme is "Winter Fun".
You can interpret this any way you wish and again this week Laila & Lisa are giving away a £10 voucher to be spent in the LOTV Shop.

Now this is my first attempt at a Tri Fold Shutter Card and I have to say once I worked out the folds it really is so simple to make. The image is All Wrapped Up & have coloured her with Copic Markers & Stickles. The papers are BG Dasher and have all been edges with a Brown Chalk Ink Pad. Fabric Ribbon & a few other embellishments. Sentiment from Buzzcraft. I didn't want to go OTT, as I think this looks better as a less is more card.
As usual the rest of the DT have wonderful cards for you to see. Pop on over to the LOTV Challenge Blog and you've until nest wednesday evening to get your entry in if you would like to take part.

Here is a list of challenges that fits this card;
Charisma Card - Vintage
Lollipop Crafts - Winter Play
Meljens Designs - Anything Goes
Southern Girls Challenge - Glitter it Up
The Ribbon Girl - Red & Green
Crafty Creations - Red/Brown/Green
Craftalicious - Anything Goes
Pear Tree Designs - Free for All
Winter Wonderland - Give it a Vintage Look

Todays weather is Cold, cold, cold and woke to a heavy frost. So a day of staying indoors, wrapping up & Crafting!!!
Thanks for taking the time to view my blog and many thanks to all those who have offered to send Daniel a card. I have received a few already & hidden them away for now

Happy Crafting
