LOTV GDT Door Hanger & Totally Tilda DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
It has been a crazy but fantastic weekend here, hubby & Jode have been busy with various events with the
Harley club, and last night Gareth's band played their first home gig in the pub Jodie works in & they were brilliant, the pub was packed, everyone had a great night, and they took record takings over the bar, Gareth even ended up helping to serve people & he'd never pulled a pint before, it was so nice to see lots of happy faces all round. I was so proud of them all it was such a good night except for Rach a friend of Jode's introducing me to sambuka which tasted vile, why on earth anyone wants to knock back shots of something resembling cough mixture is beyond me, I suddenly felt old & very slightly sensible lol.

Today I have two creations to share, first up is my GDT creation for Lili Of The Valley which was published on the LOTV Ideas To Inspire blog earlier today and I've made a door hanger for the very important Santa's Magic Key.
When I saw this sweet image it made me think that our little Ollie (my great-nephew) will be of an age next Christmas when he will understand who Santa is and I can't wait to get him all excited about Santa, I'll probably get banned from my nephew's house lol. Ollie will need a magic key for Santa & I thought this image would be perfect to use for something so special. I will be sending this door hanger to the lovely ladies at Lili Of The Valley to display but Ollie will be having one very similar with the same image :)
