Sneaky Peak - Christmas at LOTV

 Hi There
Today to share is a little sneaky peak from the new Christmas Collection from LOTV 
Ive used Christmas Prayer and I just LOVE her.
These will be available from the 25th July  and I can tell you your just going to adore them all.
Keep a look out at the rest of the girls blogs this week as there will be more sneaky peaks.
 I have painted her in Sepia (Walnut Stain Distress Reinker) and added a little crackle glaze to  give a little dimension.
I think this picture has picked the effect up quite well.

Dies used are Sizzix Snowflakes
Magnolia DooHickeyTags, Coffee Box Lace and Fern.
I don't have any LOTV Christmas Sentiments yet( I feel a visit coming on ;D) so I used the 'WISH' from the Sentiment Tags set and the Music is from the Background Bits - Notes set
Papers are Magnolia and the corners I made with Airdry Clay
Ribbon and Lace from the Ribbon Girls
That's it for today...Ive got work today :/
Thankyou for taking your time to visit me and for your lovely comments
