LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Well that 2 weeks went fast and we had so many bloggers taking part in the last LOTV Challenge. Thanks for playing along, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at your cards and apologise to the few that I didnt get time to visit. This week we have a sketch for you. Your many flip or rotate the sketch and you DO NOT need to use LOTV stamps for the challenge.

I'm using another sneak peak from the new releases out next month. This is "In The Shed" and I have coloured with Copics, added a glaze to the tiled roof and some sparkle to the little puddle. Dont think this shows very well.
I had terrible trouble getting a decent piccie of this card but it is so much nicer IRL.
Makes a change to make a mans card as I do struggle but LOTV have quite a few fittings stamps so makes my life so much easier.
Others materials used are BG Granola papers, MS Zigzag punch, dragonfly charm, 1 crochet flower, few buttons and a sentiment.

Do hope you can join us again for our fortnightly challenge and remember to make a note that more new LOTV stamps are on there way soon!

Challenges that my card fits into are;

Cards For Men - Happy Birthday
Crazy4Challenges - Masculine Card
PaperCutz - AnythingGoes
Fun With Shapes - Happy Birthday Card
Quirky Crafts - Buttons

Thanks for looking and do hope you can join us at the LOTV challenge!
