LOTV Christmas

First of all, again I would like to thank everyone, both for the lovely comments and also for the enquiries and concern about my health. As I said in my earlier post, I'm doing pretty well all things considered and I'm staying optimistic. Either way, thank you all, I really appreciate the support! x

Now on to the card du jour...

I mentioned a while ago I was making a set of cards for my mum to send out this year. I finally have the first batch ready :-)


I made half a dozen of these, and the plan is to pick up some more LOTV Christmas "foliage" stamps (possibly on Saturday at the Harrogate fair), and make another half dozen of each.

Obviously I'm keeping things fairly simple, as I am talking large quantities of cards overall and I'll otherwise not have enough time/stash to make my own! lol.

Recipe:

Image - "Holly Tree" - LOTV
Medium - Promarkers
Paper - Magazine freebie pack with no designer name on!
Sentiment - Another magazine freebie with no name
Red & white card and ribbon from stash

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

Creative Inspirations - Your favourite stamp company (LOTV of course! No contest...)

Have a fabulous day one and all!

Hi Sammym

I am happy you are feeling well and able to stamp. Keeps your mind and hands busy. I don't know what ME is but it sounds like with your positive attitude you will do well. Good wishes are being sent your way.

You mum is a lucky lady to have you making such beautiful cards for her to send, Sammy! I'm sending positive vibes to you on the health front and I'm saving your wodka for you to celebrate when you can have it again! Hugs, Darnell

Mmm, I've bought a few of those to practice with (lol) - thought they would make Christmas a bit easier all round, but haven't started yet!
