LOTV DT Card & Challenges


Today means a new challenge over at The LOTV Challenge Blog and we have another cracking sketch for you to use. Another new LOTV stamp amonst my stash. This is the first time I've inked her up and like all the LOTV Stamps, a pleasure to colour!


I used quite alot on this card. Papers from Crate, Nestie Die, MS Punch, Corner Punch and Swirl Punches. Ric Rac Ribbon and Button and Flowers from stash. The image has been coloured with Copics, Spica Pens and Stickles. This card definitely has a spring feel to it. Just wish the weather would follow suite. I have a stinking cold and kept waking up in the night as I was sneezing in my sleep. But us mums dont do sickies so I just muddle along as usual.

Thankyou to all of you who have entered my Candy, over 100 already and its only just been posted. I'm glad you like it and there is still plenty off time to enter. Its the post at the top of my blog.

Now we cant wait to see what you do with this weeks sketch. The DT have come up trumps again!
Remember, you DO NOT have to use LOTV to play along.

Looking at my challenge list on my sidebar (and it keeps growing), this card fits in with;

Fussy & Fancy - Dazzle Us
Pink Elephant - Ribbon
My Time To Craft - Green + 1
Sketchy Colours - L. Green, D. Green & Pink
Paper Sundaes - A Glittery Spring
Pile It On - Let Us See Flowers

Thanks for looking
&
Enjoy the rest of your week
