 I treated myself to a couple of LOTV Christmas stamps this week and made this card yesterday. It's called Icing the Cake, I think she's adorable and a little bit different from the usual Christmas images I'll be using this one a lot I think.
The paper was in a stack free with a Mag a few weeks ago I think it's HOTP.
I've used Marianne Creatable dies for the Pionsettia and the Doily.
The Holly is a Martha Stewart punch I got in Glasgow last week and it was half price, couldn't believe my 
The sentiment is Cuddly Buddly, pearls and large brad from Wild Orchid Crafts and the mount is Nestie Labels 2 . Ribbon and star charm from my stash.


 Just thought I'd share this little card with you all. Hubby and I were at a Wedding reception last night and the card I had made got damaged beyond repair and I had no time to make another. So I decided to customize the John Lewis Gift Voucher we had as a present. I used LOTV cute squares and mounted it onto Silver Mirri card, added a Marianne Creatables heart and ribbon to finish it off. It looked okay and saved the day for me.

 Thanks for popping in, have a good week.
