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

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am getting some candy together, didn't realise the number on my counter - WOW!!
