Final batch of LOTV for mum!

And here is an example of the last batch of LOTV Christmas cards I made for my mum. All I need to do now is make a box to put them all in (six each of three designs), and off they go to Scotland (and from there, probably all over the world! lol). I really hope she'll like them!

Again, I tried to keep it nice and flat for ease of posting. I have to admit I love this stamp, and I'm really pleased with how the pears came out. Although the partridge is a little hard to spot!
The sentiment was originally stamped in black, but I thought it was a little too harsh, so I re-stamped with weathered wood distress ink, as I'd used that to ink the image panel, and that seemed to work a lot better.

And now that I'm done making cards for mother, I can get cracking with my own again, as I'm already rather behind!


Image - "Partridge in a pear tree" - LOTV
Medium - Promarkers & distress ink
Paper - "Winter Wishes" - LOTV
Sentiment - "Christmas Grungy Messages" - LOTV
Dies - Sizzix "Snowflakes 2"
White and kraft card, ribbon and gems from stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Penny black and more - Anything goes
Polkadoodles - Christmas is coming
