LOTV cuties

Good evening folks. Hope you're keeping well. Another gorgeous day out there, hope it keeps up for the easter hols.

I bought quite a few LOTV stamps at Harrogate on Sunday, hehe! including this one. The  new clear sentiments are just so amazing, I couldn't resist.

I'm entering this into:LOTV Challenge great sketch
Stamp Something something sweet
Wild Orchid Challenge Die cuts & or punching

A couple of you asked about my card yesterday, so I've took another couple of picks to show you how it's done. It's a square card blank folded as though you're making a gatefold. Then you make two circle fasteners out of card with slits cut halfway up, and stick them on the two ends. The mat that the image is on is attatched with two circles folded in half, one half of each stuck to either side of the centre fold then the mat sticks on top of the other two folded halfs. Sorry if I haven't explained it very well. 
This was not my idea, although I'm not sure where I've seen it, perhaps whilst late night blog hopping?

I've had the sewing machine out this evening,after seeing loads of lovely cards with stitching on in blogland. Will show the finished card tomorrow.

Off to link up and catch up before I go to bed.
