LOTV DT Card & My LOTV Candy Winner + Challenges!!!!

These thursdays sure to come round quickly. I either need to clone myself or extend the 24 hour clock. Did you see how many entries we had in last weeks LOTV Challenge, 363 to be precise. Thankyou to all who took part.
The winner of my candy and who wins the new release "Coffee Break stamp is";

Congratulations to you! Please e-mail me you full name and address, so I can forward it to Lisa & Laila at
LOTV, and they will pop your prize in the post.

Today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "Glitter and Glitz". A nice easy one and perfect for the christmas cards. I've been so short of time this week with Daniel being home so I used one of LOTV's Cute Squares (christmas is coming). Its not often I resort to a quick fix but these are just so cute. Did bling it up a bit by adding Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to all of her trimmings, then added lots of Cosmic Twinkles (similar to Stickles). One of the new LOTV Sentiment Circles , MS Gingerbread Punch, Red Ribbon, Buttons, a Crocheted Flower and other Flowers to finish. Please do see what my teams have made, all gorgeous as usual.

I have been a really bad blogger and thank those who continue to visit. Daniel is back as school today and I had another round of Route Canal on my front tooth yesterday.

Here are a list of challenges that my card fits into;

Simon Says - Sparkle
Paper Sundaes - Pick Your Topping (Punches & ribbon)
I Did It Creations - Traditional Christmas Colours
Crazy 4 Challenges - Christmas Card
PollyCraft - A Glittery Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Buttons Galore
Lollipop Crafts - Very Girlie
Tuesday Throwdown - Buttons & Bow (bow in her hat)
