LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Another thursday is upon us and the weather here in the UK is certainly Autumn. Heating on and a few new additions to my wardrobe. (not that I'm complaining)!
This week at the LOTV Challenge, Bev has another cracking sketch for you. Flip it, rotate it. What ever suits.

I'm afraid my card didn't photograph very well. Its wasn't for trying thats for sure and I do have a good camera, sorry bout that.
The papers are Dovecraft and the stamp is called Christmas Robin. Coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles, Flowers and a few Gems.
This week Lisa & Laila are again giving one winner a £10 voucher to spend in the LOTV Shop. Remember, you must use a LOTV Stamp/Image to qualify for the prize. My teamies have made the most beautiful cards and it would be great if you could play along.

Heres a list of challenges I am entering this card into;
Stamp Something - Something Punchy
Crafts 4 Eternity - All That Glitters

On another note. Over the next few days I will be posting my annual "Card for Daniel". He is on a real downer at the moment and not settling in at school at all. Autism is a horrible condition to live with and I feel helpless as I'm not near my son when he needs me. So I be asking again if you could send Daniel a birthday card this year as he's loved it in the past and it really does put a smile on his face. I think anything is worth a try right now.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and hope you can join us this week over at the LOTV Challenge Blog

HI Claire, Lovely card, this image is so sweet, and your photo looks great to me. My sisters middle child Curtis is Autistic (he's 19 now) and I know only too well what it's like haveing a family member with this condition. I hope all goes well for you, only going by our experience Curtis has got better
-in a coping way- the older he has got, my poor sister had it so bad when he was little. Debbiexx
