LOTV anniversary


I've made this one for an order using yet another previously un-inked LOTV stamp - such a sweet little image :o)


It's coloured with promarkers, with glamour dust on the little girl's bow.  The papers are gorgeous GCD Studios 'ella blue', with dark brown Papermill cardstock.  Anniversary sentiment is from a Country Companions set, ticket stamp is Imaginisce, 'to my husband' made up from an Elzybells set.  Ribbon from Little Claire, buttons from stash, hearts cut with the Sizzix 'primitive hearts' die.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Huge apologies if I haven't managed to visit your blog in the last day or so.  I'm a bit busy with orders, and Dex had a settling in session at nursery this morning, so I've been a bit preoccupied with that.  Dex has had a fabulous time, wasn't upset when I left and only asked for me once... I was a nervous wreck!   We had lots of cuddles when I picked him up, but he seems to have enjoyed it and is looking forward to going back for another session next week.  After the Easter hols he'll be going 3 full days - ooh all that lovely peaceful crafty time!
