OMGoodness - two posts in two hours (OK, so only one of them is a card)!! It's still a record for me though - two cards in two weeks is usually the rate I work at!!
This gorgeous little chap is entered into the Cards for Men Challenge, where the theme this week is "Off on an Adventure".
It's obviously the first time he's been down to the boating lake with his brand new yacht - I can just tell by the way he's striding out that he can't wait to get there and give it a go! What an adventure!
Yes, it's another LOTV stamped image - told you I was addicted!
The image has been cut with a Nestie Labels 4 die and coloured with watercolour pencils. 
Card is SU Kraft, papers are LOTV downloads inked around the edges with Adirondack Denim and Stonewashed.  
Sentiment computer generated. Faux stitching drawn with a white gel pen, some navy ric-rac and a metal charm added.
Hope you like him as much as I do!
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxxxx

You've really got the LOTV bug haven't you, told you they were adorable. I need to get my hands on some of the Christmas ones!!
This is a really beautiful card. You can just see the concentration in his face as he carries his boat to the boating pond can't you.
Looking forward to seeing you soon and hope things are going well with you.
Bye for Now Lisax
