LOTV DT Card & Challenges

How time flies. 2 weeks have gone and today Bev has come up with have a lovely sketch for you at the LOTV Challenge Blog. I dont usually go with these colours but bought a new Papermania Pad and although I dont use them much, I love gingham papers.

My LOTV image has been coloured with Copic Markers and cut out with Nesties. The Flowers and lace are from my stash and I've added lots of stickles to both the flowers and the flowers on the image. The leaves and butterfly are both punched.

Got a bit happy with the camera. It was so nice outside I took my card into the garden in the end.
Its so nice to be back crafting and I'm blog hopping when I can.
My hubby has taken today and tomorrow off to spend time with us all before they go back to school next week. I'm sure we will venture out somewhere. Poor Jessica went back on Monday and is sitting her Textiles exam over the next 2 days. Shes such a wonderful artist. I'll have to post some of her work here one day. Doesn't get it from her mum, thats for sure. I dont go beyond stick men.
Anyway, enough of me rambling, here are some other challenges my card fits into.

ABC - S for Sparkle
Creatalicious - Flowers & Wings
Magical Crafts - Animal Antics
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Prairie Fairy - Photo Inspiration

Hope you can join us at the LOTV Challenge. I bet alot of you stocked up at Ally Pally. Shame I couldn't make it. Remember the new Busy Bear releases out on the 21st April over at the
LOTV Shop, and there is also going to be a new set of Cute Cats and Dogs with sentiments released the same day!
Me and the rest of the DT will be showing more sneak peaks very soon!
