An LOTV card

Good Morning to all my blog friends

It is bitterly cold here in the good old Freestate! Our weather is something else. Coming from a much warmer Kwa-Zulu Natal, myself and hubby is going to have a battle to get used to this Freestate weather this winter. Yesterday morning we woke up to frost that looked like snow on the lawn! But the day turned out to be quite nice and I managed to get some work done in my craft room.

I bought some LOTV stamps some time ago, one of them specifically for the Come to Tea swap we had, and then some of them just because they were so cute. This week in between all the other things that I was busy with, I did this card.
It was colored with my trusty old Tombow markers. A bit of stickles and red flatback pearls were also added. The swirls is cut pieces from a Marianne die which I bought from Country Crafts, one of our SA craft shops. The embossed background was done with one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders. I rather enjoyed doing this card as I have not done any cards for quite some time.

One of the reasons for not being able to make cards is because I am busy with a project where myself & 2 friends from our WI group have to make 40 paper shoes. These will be used as the invitation for a congress we are having here in Heilbron next year. The shoes only need to be done by October, but there are more things that need to be done for this function and as the saying goes: what's done is done! I will show some pics of us working on this at a later stage.

I do hope that you will have a fantastic weekend full of wonderful things.

Thanks so much for visiting!

    Love the card Amanda. I have also not been very productive, but my reason was holiday. Trying to get back into it now. I also know about the frost this week, but at least today the wind is less and we still have sunshine. Keep warm. hugs Ursula
