LOTV Guest Designer

Good morning everyone, well goodmorning from the UK lol. I have to say sorry about the bank hol mix up my darling hubster told me it was a bank hol, it was only when looking at the calender I realised it said Ireland & Scotland next to it :0( It was small writing though so we can forgive him lol.

Ok so did you read my heading...........yesy I'm Guest Designer for LOTV!!! OMG seriously I am totally & utterly thrilled to bits & feel so completely honoured.

So for my first GDT card for LOTV I have made a more simple kinda card. Now Anne told me to stick to my normal kind of style &...........well thats hard because I dont have a particular style, however I have made nothing out of the ordinary & kept everything how I would normally make things.
So here's my first one.......
I have also used 3 sentiments from LOTV, I've used the 'Sentiment Tags' which are my fave & I've made a banner & used 'Handwritten Phrases' sentiment stamps, I lurve these, though tbh I lurve ALL LOTV sentiment stamps!!
The flowers are from LLC, the rolled roses are Kort Og Godt. The middle flower is a WOC flower which I sprayed with florist spray to soften the colour. The leaves are 'Sprawling Ferns' magnolia dies.

Inside has been decorated to compliment the front, its not always decorated the same but mainly its to compliment the front of the card.
The gorgeous papers is Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics', I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched as always. 

The gorgeous lace is from LLC which is Maya Road 'Crochet Trim'.  

The super cute image is called 'Fabulous Flower' & I coloured it with Copics.
The doilies & scalloped pearls are from my stash.

Well thats it from me, I hope you like my card for LOTV.

I did get my hair cut off at the hairdressers & was going to get hairlights as well but decided to stay with my dark hair for now as 1 big change was enough for the day. I have to say that I love it & so do the family, I will post a pic once I get one taken. I got an asymetrical haircut so its still long-ish-ish on one side lol.

Ok well tatty bye for now, pop on over to the LOTV Inspirations blog as they are always giving away prizes & they have fantastic inspiration from their super duper talented DT. You will certainly be 'Inspired' ;0)

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your sunday mmwah.

I said you'd be great, didn't I?! Very cute card; I adore this mini banner trim and of course the papers, and can't wait to see the rest of your LOTV Guest cards. Your new hair cut sounds intriguing....
