LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Hello everyone, cant believe its been a week since I lasted blogged a card. Thats families for you. Today at the LOTV Challenge we have another fab sketch for you to use. I have coloured
this cute image called "Mirror, Mirror" with Copic markers, Liquid Pearls, Stickles and a Transparant Viva Pen. The papers are a mix of Magnolia & Bayberry Cottage. I've edges these with a darker blue chalk ink pad. Swirl is Sizzix and a mix of flowers. I've edged the leaves with a Silver Glitter Liner from Viva Pens (I get mine from Quoxotic Paperie), just love the colours and the way they hold their shape.

Hope you can join in with this fortnightly challenge. We had well over 100 entries on the last challenge and I do try and get to as many as you as possible.

Zoe broke up yesterday, Daniel brakes up today. I've the sports day to go to and although they don't officially break up till Friday, they are letting the boarders home a day early. Means a nice 3hrs driving. Then Jessica breaks up on Friday, on her 15th Birthday, so apologies if I'm s bit quiet, a lot going on atm but will try and make a bit of "me time" every day.

here are some challenges my card fits into to;

Everybody Art - Blue/White
Paper Playtime - Flower Power
Papertake Weekly - Cute Patootie

My Annual Request - A Card for Daniel!


I sort of feel guilty asking again. Its either the 3rd or 4th year I've made this request and you are always so generous which is why I'm hoping you don't mind me asking again.

Daniel turns 13 years old on the 7th November and as many of you know he is on the Autistic Spectrum suffering from Aspbergers Syndrome. Basically its the inability to socialise or interact socially with others. Last year he starts Senior school and now attends A Special Needs school quite a journey from here and has to board weekdays. Well this term he has not settled in at all. Infact he is at his lowest ever at the moment and I hate seeing my boy so sad. As a mum you just wanna give them a big cuddle when their down but its just not possible during the week and I feel pretty awful.
Anyway, it would mean a great deal to me if a few peeps could kindly send Daniel a Birthday Card. This is a request I have put out over the last few years and you're kindness is tenfold. He doesn't have parties so I like to give him something special and I know he LOVES opening all the gorgeous cards/creations and takes the time to look at them individually, studying each one and picking out details.

You can email me at clairebsdataoldotcom.

He's very much into computers and gaming but loves dinosaurs, robots etc. Spongebob & Pokemon are a firm favourite (I'm always asked his interests).

Many Thanks for taking the time to read my post & Hope I haven't offended anyone!
Hugs & Thanks
