LOTV Sketch

I can't believe how well the black works with this card and still it looks cute, I did try brown since its a softer colour but the black makes the red really pop. I used Bev's fab sketch over on LOTV challenge and of course used one of their gorgeous new Christmas stamps. The paper is from Glitz I think and I didn't like the green on the back so thats why I used a white embossed background.
The poinsettias are left over from last year, the iron gate punch and the jet pearls all to finish. Oh I forgot to mention the mixture of flower soft and fun flock for her muff and snow.
So yesterday we had planned to go to Denbies in Dorking with a detour to the Glitter Pot but my Sis made a surprise visit to Guildford to see our Mum and I suggested we took her to Glitter Pot since she always drives it would nice to drive her instead, so Denbies was put on hold.
It was fairly easy to find the new premises of The Glitter Pot, yes the stairs are a bit of an issue but we managed. It large and airy, nice size classroom but its lost it character but hopefully that will come in time.
I tried to find a pub that I thought I knew where it was but I was mistaken, so I suggested we went home the scenic way to find one which just so happened to past The Crafts U Love (it wouldn't normally but hey I had the directions)
The lovely Suzie was there and we had a nice chat and she showed me what the wonderful Kim had made on their demo day, a gorgeous picture frame as well as a couple of fab cards. Well I totally blame them both cos I had to have the swirls and leaves that was used. It was a magnolia die which when compared with the other makes quite expensive but since I brought two sizzilets in the sale I felt the savings I made paid for it!
We did find somewhere to eat later, couldn't let them stave now could I.
Has anyone else lost comments, I published them yesterday but they didn't show and today they still haven't shown up.
