LOTV Christmas!

Morning all - well this is a scheduled post as its Lucy's birthday today so I imagine I'll be up to my neck in wrapping paper thats she's torn off and abandoned - and envelopes too!

My offering for today is a monochrome Christmas card - its also the first outing for my frosty wreath die from memory box - couldn't resist!!!!

The LOTV image is from last years releases for Christmas but I think I've still got mileage in her - she's gorgeous! I've gone for a monochrome card and used mesh behind the image to add texture. She's coloured with promarkers and I've used a sentiment from hunky dory. The layout follows kylies sketch at the sketchy challenges - and there's a tag on there too!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
stampinfortheweekend Monochromatic
thepoodlesparlour Lets use those die cuts
liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge: Monochrome
mymumscraftshopchallenges: Christmas in August
christmascardchallenges: Texture
pinkinksketchchallenges: Kylie's Sketch
totallygorjuss: Lovely Lace

Here's hoping Lucy is having a lovely day - she's having a party at lunch time at the bowling alley so will see her friends there - then its back home for a family party with Nanny and Gramps and Doris - she's the 90 year old lady who lives across the road - what a star she is!

Big hugs to everyone and hope you all have a wondeful day too!
