Well, I ended up at the LOTV open day yesterday (I'm not even going to pretend to "oops" anymore, lol), and this time my dear 13-year-old daughter came with me. Under duress, I might add!
So we got to the shop, moody teen in tow and started to look for bits and bobs I was after. It didn't take long for her to drop the moody teen thing and start exclaiming over the gorgeous cards on display! So she helped me choose some stamps and flowers and then we went upstairs to share a slice of choc fudge cake! (also foregoing the "oops"...) She then won me some goodies on the tombola, including a paper pad! Woohoo!
Purchases purchased and us ladies escorted safely back home by the boys (who waited in the car the whole time and would absolutely not be coaxed out under any circumstances), said previously moody teen ran off upstairs - after making me stamp her several LOTV images - to go off and create.
As for me, I had a half-finished image on my desk, which I was able to finish off with the new Promarkers I had just picked up and then turned into this card:
You can just make out the glossy accents on the windows!

Now, for the special guest card. Designed by Miss Kayleigh...
She had the idea of covering all the white bits with Stickles, and I love how sparkly it is!
So there you have it. Her first LOTV card, and she's already gotten me to stamp her about a dozen more images so she can make cards for all her friends! Feel free to leave her some love and encouragement here, and I'll be certain to pass it on! :-)
Hope your day is a great one,
