LOTV Thursday Challenge...Childs Christmas Card!



Hello Everyone,

Sorry that I have been MIA the past few days. My husband and my neighbor are in the process of remodeling the remodeling our basement and once again everything is turned up side down. The basement is where my craft room is and a lot of my supplies are covered up. However, I did remove the main supplies and have set up a temporary station at the dining room table. Although it is not the same, it will do until they are finished. I can't wait to return to my new area which will include some built in storage. I have seriously outgrown those plastic type drawers from Target!



On to the good stuff! Today's LOTV Thursday Challenge is to make a Christmas card for a child. I made my card with the color theme red and white with lots of sparkle. The image is from LOTV ( Christmas Bunnies- Robin ) and I also downloaded the design paper which reads "Merry Christmas* Happy Christmas" from LOTV. My image is colored in with Copic Markers and embellished with Ice Stickles. I also added tiny drops of Liquid Pearls to the gift and stocking and add Liquid Glass to the candy cane. The other embellishments are ribbon and red half pearls.



As with all LOTV Challenges, you have two weeks to complete your card. You don't have to use LOTV Stamps but if you have them, please use them. When you are finished with your card, link your creation to LOTV Thursday blog. We are also looking for a GDT member... so...get creative as I can't wait to view your creations!

Have a great day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

hugs

Risa

I'm gonna try to post it on my blog, but sometimes my cell phone pics don't do the creative artist justice as you deserve.
