LOTV Red Squirrels Pine Tree

Hi There
Hope you are all having a great week so far.
Today to share is a LOTV card using one of their newest release stamps

I chose this stamp because it reminded me of our holiday last year in Scotland where we stayed in a log cabin. Outside everyday were 3 Red Squirrels playing in the pine trees. This is a picture I took of one of them.
I have made a winter card, but it is a great versatile stamp and one which could be used all year round. I wish I'd of had the stamp last year at it would of made a great thank you card for the owner of the cabin.

I have watercoloured the card with Distress Re-Inkers. For the snow Ive decorated with Frantage Shabby White and Iced Crystals.
The Sentiment is also LOTV Christmas Handwritten Phrases.
These are clear stamps and are great for curving and worked great with my banner die.
Dies used are
DooHickeys Sprawling Ferns and Christmas tags
Sizzix Pinecone
and for the shape of the card I used Go Kreate dies Frilly Square #6
Thankyou for visiting me today

♥♥♥ A Touch Of Velvet ♥♥♥

Its Heartsthis week over at MDUC chosen by my very gorgeous friend Camilla.
Such a perfect choice for me as I think you've already gathered I just love
 Ive got to say I LOVED making this card. Its a picture Ive had in my head for a few weeks now. As soon as I saw Violet Tilda I knew she belonged in the Romantic Window hence the Hearts
 Again I wanted a Sepia Vintage effect with a 'Touch Of Velvet' .....Victorian velvet! hee hee
 The whole image is painted with Distress Inks Walnut Stain for an OLD look and a touch of Victorian Velvet which I have then painted over with Distress Crackle Glaze.
Ive added a little Frantage to the Flowers
 All the beautiful ribbon, lace and resin frame is from the Ribbon Girls.The butterfly on the frame and the clay corner I have made with Airdry clay. Have you noticed the heartsin the lace too?
For the shape of the card Ive used Go Kreate Dies
 My tag is made with a Magnolia Doohickey Die 'Cloudy Tags' and also the Butterfly is Magnolia.
Papers are also Magnolia.
The Shabby Bark  Heart and Clay Heart are from Live and Love crafts
Im entering my card in a couple of challenges
Byeeee for now

A Midweek Reminder and a Proud Mama Moment

 Hi There
Im still here...I think!!..just Christmased out!!!!Hee hee..No Ive been up to my eyes in Christmas work behind the scenes recently..
Today to share is a verrryyyy late card for the Ribbon Girls Challenge to include numbers. (Sorry Im so late Mary :D)
Ive used a beautiful image from LOTV 'Skipping'. I wanted to give her more of an aged ,vintage look so I painted her with Distress Ink Walnut Stain..
For the shape of my card Ive used a Go Kreate die- Flower

 I feel to be struggling with my cards recently. Im going through a 'less is more' stage and not wanting to add anything much or overload it, but at the same time I want to use all the beautiful embellishments I have but cant. I also love all the amazing dies out there. The flowers here I have made using a Marianne Die.
All Ribbon and Lace is from the Ribbon Girls
Dies are DooHickeys by Magnolia
all available from Sir Stampalot
Before I go I want to share my proud Mama moment with you all.
