LOTV DT Card & Challenges!!!!

(Click on photo for a bigger picture)
Today we see another LOTV Challenge and you may have noticed the DT have been giving sneak peaks this week with the new stamps that are to be released at the NEC, then in the LOTV Shop on the 12th November.

We have another cracking sketch this week from the talented Bev and I couldn't resist using "Hello Cupcake" from the Tea & Chat Set. She has been coloured with Copics & Prisma Pencils. The background is made using my Field of Sky Rubber Stamp then added Liquid Pearls & Stickles. The papers are Prima - Jack n Jill. Love the sentiment? This is also a one of the many new releases. MS Border Punch, Lace, SU Punch `spiral Punch, MS Leaf Punch, Pearl Gems & Wild Orchid Flowers, all stickled. The Pearl Bead Spray is available from Crafty Emma's Store.

I really do love the colours on this card, it is so summery compared to the cold we are all suffering now. I am going to send this card to Elise who was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. You can read all about her story and a card drive dedicated to her can be found HERE on Cheryl's Blog. There is even candy on offer if you take part. Please give a little love to Elise. She is such a nice lady and I hope the treatment goes well.
Talking of card drives, Daniel is receiving Birthday Cards on a daily basis. I got one threw from Australia yesterday, how quick was that! I've seen a few of them on peeps blogs & OMG, they are all gorgeous. Wish I was 13 again LOL.

Heres a few challenges that my card fits into;

Incy Wincy Designs - Lace & Pearls
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - Glitter
Paper Pretties - Square Card/Project
Creative Card Crew - Lets Punch It
Papertake Weekly - Sparkly & Bright
Marks Finest Papers - Die Cuts or Punches
ASFOS - Lets Get Punchy
2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes

We are off to Alton Towers for the weekend tomorrow so I will be preposting me DT card for Saturday and will catch up with you all next week.
Thanks for dropping by. Always appreciate your lovely comments!

TTFN & Hugs
