Live and Love Craft Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a wonderful christmas & I wish you all the very best for 2015.
I am sorry I've been MIA but I was ill on the lead up to christmas, got a few tests to have for that. Then christmas eve I got a kidney infection, Megan my lovely daughter-In-Law got bad pain christmas night which lead doctors to believe it could be her appendix........we found out yesterday that its not but still no idea what it is. My grandchildren came down with a bug on Boxing day, so lots of vomiting bless em, which I then caught day after that. Today is the first day I feel a wee bit human & I do mean a wee bit lol.

Ok so onto my late card which is for Live & Love Crafts & the first challenge of the year is.....
WINTER-SPORTS
.........I went with a stamp that I still hadn't inked up & even though it took me 2 days to colour it as I was colouring whilst ill..........with a bucket next to me lol. I did enjoy colouring this cute pair lol.
Ok so EVERYTHING, except die-cuts & cardstock is from Live & Love Crafts, well Sandy stocks enough yumminess to pile on our cards & much more lol.

I have added 2 different beautiful laces & added Pearl Flowers at each side. The flowers are WOC from LLC & the rolled ones are Kort & Godt, all have had gesso added to them. 

The gorgeous papers are Pion Silent Night 'Church' & Silent Night 'Winter'. The edges have been inked with walnut & machine stitched. The circle was cut out using a Go-Kreate die, on the top I also used the scalloped Go-Kreate die & added Cheese Cloth underneath.

Ok so this cute pair are called 'Skating Fun' from LOTV. I coloured them with copics & added snow dots with my pearl pen & Diamond Dust along the bottom as ice.
 The image I coloured before today but the card itself I didnt make til today :0(
The tag at the top is held inside a mini pocket, the tag I made with a Magnolia die & added Seam Binding & 21mm Heart Pearl Button to the centre. The metal corner I embossed with Shabby White Fran-Tage. I also added bells & a bark star.

Well thats it from me. Despite the eventful christmas we did have a good christmas still & still had a good laugh surrounded by our loved ones.........

Will be back tomorrow with my inspirational post for LLC.

Thank you so much for stopping by & thank you SOOOOOOOOO much for your continued support, you all totally rock mmwah!!!!!!!!
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxxx

You had the perfect stamp for the theme! Sorry you were feeling so bad whilst making this card, it still turned out beautiful. Very classy, and I love this colour combo.
