LOTV Christmas Dance

Another image I coloured on holiday was this little cutie:
I used:

- 6" x 6" white square card stock

- LOTV 'Christmas Dance' stamp - coloured with Aqua Markers and 'schparkled' with Glamour Dust and Stickles

- red card from snippets (never knew there were so many wrong shades of red card in my stash and it was snippets to the rescue once again!)

- backing paper from the Marianne Design 'Merry Little Christmas' paper pack

- sentiment 'tag' from stash - bought ages ago from QVC

- red and silver velvet ribbon sent to me by the lovely Carol, when Costco sold out of the Christmas ribbon pack I'd been admiring on her blog, she sent me a selection - thanks again honey!

- red silk ribbon tied into a bow - and some! - from Wild Orchid Crafts

- glittered poinsettias that I sparkled earlier, in true Blue Peter fashion, last week

- Josy Rose green nail heads (one of which I used to cover the hole in the sentiment tag)

I think that's the last of the images that I coloured whilst on holiday :( And the card itself was almost wrecked right at the 'last knockings'. I used the glue gun to attach the poinsettias....... and the ribbon bow - as the gun was already out for the flowers. Oooooops, big oops in fact, got a blob of glue on the red velvet ribbon just above the knot in the bow :( But, after running round the walls in fury at my own clumsiness I tied another knotted piece of silk ribbon and layered it over the bow at right angles - ha, THIS time attaching it with ultra sticky DST!! It hides the blob of glue at least :))

Missed the snippets playground last week so am trying to screech in early this week - 'Im baaaaaack Miss' - Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge Week 47

Today is meant to be the day that loads of folk do their online Christmas shopping - however, I'll be 'dashing away with the smoothing iron' whilst watching some DVDs. Yup, that was a plural DVDs - there's a humongous (a big word!) load of ironing leering at me from the futility room.........I could be some time :((



  1. A gorgeous Christmas card Di, I just love the red bow as it just finishes the card off perfectly :)

  2. Oh dear Ironing!!! I am going out to shop today, need things like new school shoes for youngest, new school trousers for youngest, presents for Dad and Maggie, and FINALLY a new Christmas tree, hubbys only made me wait a whole year!!! On top of that I have all those cards to make!!! I'll never be finished, hope you're still chuckling lol

  7. Another cute card Di. I love colouring the LOTV stamp images. I've just finished off fifteen cards using my new angels. I think it's time to start writing some of them now.
    I have a bit of a blind spot about ironing since I came to live here, but it is on my 'To do' list for this week - right at the bottom! Kate x

  8. Well one good thing came out of the disaster, you got a fabulous bow. Brilliant card but I thought it was 8 ladies dancing lol. Fabulous colouring too.
