I can't believe I am still in the Christmas mood. It doesn't usually last this long but with such gorgeous stamps from LOTV to work with I'm not at all suprised. Are you loving all the sneaky peeks? This one is called 'Plum Pudding'.

I have tried to make this one look a bit vintage but think I have failed miserably. When I had coloured it I thought it had a look of the Fifties about it. Anyway, I have followed the great sketch but lengthened it to fit an A5 card. The image has been coloured with promarkers and distressed around the edge. I then added this gorgeous lace around it. I distressed the doily behind by stippling with distress inks but I think I need a lot more practice. I stamped, coloured and cut out the bunting and added it to the corners to look like Christmas decorations. Because the corners still looked a bit empty I added some peel-off bells. The sentiment is a chipboard tag I had in my stash but because it was going slightly under the image I took the ribbon off (hope this counts for the challenges). I'm not too sure about this one myself but thanks for looking.

Don't forget to check out the Ideas To Inspire Blog for more sneaky peeks of the new LOTV 'Christmas Cuties' stamps being released on 25th July. I'll be back with another one soon.
