Very Bad Posting...But a Little Lantern to 'Light the Way'!

Hello! I know, it's been ages since I posted anything, there's no excuse really other than I haven't really had anything very interesting to post! There are a few things to tell you about but this is just a quick post to share a couple of things.

First, my bed is apparently very comfy because SJ fell asleep on it a few days ago and Robyn is asleep on it at the moment! (Excuse the bad photo, I had to use the webcam because, as you can see, my camera and my phone are both on the bed with Robyn and I didn't want to wake her up! My room is also not a mess, it just looks it in this picture!)


She is very tired though as she works delivery so she's been up since 4 this morning and we're going to see The Dark Knight Rises later on so she's having a nap first!

Second thing I want to share, there is a competition on at the moment on the LOTV blog (here) and the Facebook page (here) that is running until 9th August for 'Anything But a Card' and two lucky winners picked at random will win a £15 voucher and the favourite entry will win a £25 voucher!
There will be a set of winners picked from the Facebook page AND the blog but you will only be able to enter on one or the other, not both. All the details are on the blog or FB page!

I thought I would share something I made to give you a little inspiration (because I'm sure you can do much better that me!) I didn't intentionally make this lantern as an example as I'd made it a little before the competition but the timing seems to have worked out quite well!




The stamp is 'Light the Way' from the new LOTV Christmas launch and coloured with Promarkers (Marsh Green, Ruby, Tan, Vanilla, Blush, Khaki, Cool Grey 1, Cool Grey 4, Forrest Green, Canary). The stars in the ground are from LOTV's 'Twinkling Star' stamp turned the other way up!
The little snowman and Christmas Tree are Hero Arts 'Merry Messages' and the little Santa and reindeer are from one of the stamps from LOTV's Grunge Christmas Postmarks set.

Considering I'm not very good at colouring, I think it turned out quite well but I still need quite a bit of practice!!

Think that's everything for now but there should be a few more updates soon!
