It has to be LOTV!!

Hello to all. Hope this finds you well. I still seem to be chasing my tail these days. Dogs, horse, extra hours at work, Husband, Family, house and garden (not necessarily in that order mind!!) I am sure that there aren't as many hours in the day as there used to be!!

Anyway, the reason for my visit today is to shout about the new challenge at


Where we would love you to share a project featuring your favourite BRAND of stamp...and don't forget to tell us why.

Now I have many, many stamps, rubber/clear and digi and it seems I have far more LOTV than any other. I suppose it's because that are such fabulous quality, have great detail and you can always find one for any occasion.



Mine was made for Chelsea (Mollie's Mummy) who celebrated her Birthday on Tuesday. She is really girly so I decided to push the boat out and throw everything at it...Cute stamp, pretty papers, cheesecloth, flowers, die cuts...well it did the trick because she loved it!!

Hope you will  be able to join in with us here

Until next time...take care xx

Super showcasing of that LOTV stamp Sarah. I wouldn't know where to start on this theme! Sun is shining and the lambs are frisky, #63 is still in the field but we will be moving them to the top field where there is more grass today, wish us luck! :)

This is absolutely darling and so feminine and girly, Sarah! If I pushed the boat out and tried throwing everything at a card like this, the boat would capsize! I don't know how you do it and I'm in awe!! (I so agree with you about someone shortening the hours in the day! Help, thief!!) Hugs, Darnell

Sarah, I love this card. LOTV is one of my most favorite stamp companies too. I'm so sorry I had to miss this fun challenge, life just got in the way and the earth seems to be spinning much to fast. You should do a tutorial on flower placement, you've done such a beautiful job!

Michelle said...

What a beautiful birthday card for Mollie's mum Sarah. You've pulled the stops out for this one! I love everything about it. I have just bought some cheesecloth but not used it yet but yours looks gorgeous. Hope I get mine to look like that! I know what you mean about chasing your tail. I feel the same, I just can't seem to keep up with everything lol! Michelle x

MaryH said...

Just delightful, and I love all the frilly bits. Love the layers & embellies on the darling image, and the vintage coloring you've added on the edges. I have a very few old LOTV toppers, but not one single stamp. Finding plenty of duplicates of others though, as I sort through. And I've labeled the drawers, but expect I'll still be hunting for items even though! You find the sweetest images, and always 'card' them up so lovely. TFS & Hugs

I know what you mean about chasing your tail Sarah, and I hope things slow down for you soon. I'm glad you had time to make this cute beauty though, and I can see why why the lucky recipient loved it!
