Hello everyone. Yesterday we had lovely weather here, so as blogger was playing up, I decided to take myself off to the garden centre and bought lots of plants for my pots and tubs. Spent 4hrs in the sunshine arranging and planting, and now the front of my house looks as pretty as a picture. I've still the back garden to do but have alot of pots out there, so am going to wait another few weeks before I do it as not all the summer blooms seem to have come out yet. Anyway, back to business,

Its Thursday and this weeks LOTV Challenge is a sketch for you to play with. This is my 3rd round as a GDT for the challenge and have loved each and everyone of them. For this challenge, I've done a card with no stamping - OMG!!!. Papers are K & CO, Bloom is Prima and sentiment I done on my Dymo Letra Tag. I found this machine in my craftroom the other day, totally forgot about but now its out, will be put to good use I'm sure. Rub Ons are Bo Bunny and I doodled round all the circles as they looked a bit plain.

A very differnt style of card for me, and I love the black/cream combo, actually one of my favourites.

The insert is another off the Designer Inserts Extreme, from Bearly Mine Designs and I found an insert that matched my card perfectly. Texted added to the page on my computer.

I do hope you can join in with this weeks LOTV Challenge, please do go see what other wonderful creations the rest of the DT have done, you wont be dissapointed!!!
