LOTV DT Card & Challenges.

Its Thursday and that of course can only mean a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge blog. This week we would like to see a Christmas Card for Someone Special.
If I'm honest I'm not happy with this card, maybe because I didnt get to do any colouring. I was feeling a bit off colour yesterday, and today have woke full of cold (sneezing while I type - eek).  My mojo was not on form but had just recieved some new LOTV Die Cuts and was the perfect excuse to use one.The paper are DCWV Christmas Stack. I've added lots of Stickles, Pearls and a Viva Pearl Pen. The sentiment is computer generated and punched with an EK Success Ticket Punch.
In the meantime I need to get cracking with my Chistmas Cards and a few Family Birthdays. So if hubby moans, I'll threaten to spend all his money in Clintons LOL.
Best stock up on tissues first as I think I'm going to need them today!
