LOTV = Red, Green & White

Morning bloggers, how are we all today?  I'm feeling happy and sad at the same time, if that makes any sense.  Happy because Ireland beat Australia in their RU World Cup game (one heck of an achievement) and sad because I notice that I have lost a follower.  I know that there are sooooo many reasons for that to happen, but it still makes me feel sad that a friend has said goodbye.

Now, I hear you asking, why are you supporting Ireland and not England?  Well, I do support England too, but as Toad is half Irish, and I'm about an eighth Irish, there is need for them to do well.  I wish Vince would see it that way but he just runs and hides when the shouting and cheering starts.  Perhaps I'll have to make him a small flag to tie to his tail.

Anyhoo, enough of this nonsense, on to my card for today.  LILI OF THE VALLEY this week are challenging us to use Red, Green and White with an eye towards Christmas cards.

I started this one Thursday night.  It's been through three attempts and I'm still not satisfied with it.  Some cards just happen, this one didn't.

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: Lili Of The Valley Shine A Light
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Papers: Basic Grey Jovial
Corner Die: Marianne Creatibles
Sentiment: LOTV ticket stamp and a Staples office date stamp
Extras: Craftwork Cards Card Candi and Stampendous Snowflakes

Thanks for popping over to have a look.  I'm working on something different for me (it's a bit messy and I don't do messy) so hope to have that ready for you for tomorrow.

Hugs, Sxx

Gorgeous card Squirrel, beautifully coloured. How many of the new LOTV did you get? Love the date stamp idea, might have to 'steal' one from work.
Ireland played brilliantly to beat Australia, great match. Come on England and Wales tomorrow!!
