Christmas with LOTV

Hi All
Today for a change we went for lunch to Trader Vic’s as him in doors fancied sitting in nice surroundings near the sea, so I am writing this under the influence of Pina Colada’s and boy were they good and Brian even managed a beer and the food was delish too, perfect day.

Good job I finished the card this morning or it might have ended up a little wobbly a bit like me really lol.



LOTV don’t you just love these images? I know I do and this one is especially a favourite of mine, I knew I had to have this one as soon as it was brought out. I gave her lots of stickles, glossy accents and gel pen, plus distressed the paper with a bit of Timmy. I also got to use some of my new stash I brought back from the UK, ribbon, flowers, bling, charm and pin, so delish and just perfect for Christmas.
