LOTV DT Card & other Challenges...

Not sure whats happened with the british weather but we've gone from wet & windy to sunny & warmer. Cant believe its October and were in for a warm weekend. Think hubby will be mowing the lawn, little does he know - lol.
Another new challenge over at this weeks LOTV Challenge Blog & this week we have an "Autumn" theme, so nice & easy.
For my card I have used "Baby Boy" & coloured with Copics. The papers are Cosmo Cricket "Wanted". Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, MS Border Punch, Lace and have used both Crystal & Platnium Stickles. The sentiment is by Serendipity and have cut out with a punch. The gorgeous Butterfly Stamp in the background is Tim Holtz. Not my usual colour scheme but its nice to have a change of direction sometimes. As usual the rest of the DT have made stunning cards so if you ever need any inspiration pop on over to the LOTV Challenge Blog.

I joined the gym a fortnight ago and it was only yesterday I plucked up the courage to go back. 1 hrs worth of Treadmill, Bike, CrossTrainer & some contraption that works the inner thighs.. Thought it would make me feel like a new woman. Gonna keep it up though as have paid for membership and will help to keep me in trim. (heres hoping - lol)

Heres a list of challenges my card fits into;
Paper Sundaes - Something From Your Stash
Pocket Full Of Posies - Autumn Leaves
Cowgirls Sunday Stampen - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Autumn or Fall
Timbroscrapmania - Autumn Colours
Charisma Cards - Autumn Colours
Digi Doodles - Orange Me Glad
PollyCraft - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Autumn Birthdays

So thats it from me for now My card below was featured over at Flutterby Wednesday. So thanks to Danni and the team for the blinkie. Its now on my sidebar along with the Top 3 blinkie I also received.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Am hoping to catch up with a lot of blogs as I've not had so much computer time this week!
