LOTV... again, lol.

Hi all,

Well, I went to the LOTV open day/Christmas party yesterday, and had an absolutely FAB time! Didn't have my daughter with me, as she was at Stagecoach. There were lots of LOTV DT there, showing off their skillz and letting us in on some of their secrets... I also spent a lovely while chatting with DT Gretha and her friend (whose name I didn't catch, sorry!) who had come over from the Netherlands to join in with yesterday's festivities!

Naturally, I also had to take advantage of the 20% off offer, and I may or may not have picked up a couple of paper pads and a stamp or 8... Included in those stamps was this cutie:

I coloured him with my Promarkers, and teamed him up with some of the "Winter Wishes" paper.
I've made it into a birthday card, with some of the LOTV Handwritten Phrases, but the way I see it, he could very easily become a little drummer boy too with a "pa rum pa pum pum" sentiment and some more traditionally Christmassy paper!

And I picked up an extra one of these, which I will be giving away to one of you later!

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

Cute card Thursday - Anything goes
I <3 Promarkers - Anything goes
Simon says Stamp - anything goes
The Male Room - Little boys and Babies

Hope you're all having a fabulous day, and I'll see you later with the new candy!

Lucky you getting to go to the Christmas party at LOTV - I am too far away :-( To be honest, it is probably just as well or I think I would walk out with far too many purchases! I did get a few new stamps online in the sale though!
This little drummer boy is soooo cute and good for lots of different cards. I love the pretty DP and pastel colours :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
