LOTV DT Card & Challenges!!!!

Sorry for posting so late. My 95 yr old nan had a fall last night and I ended up calling 999 this morning and have been at the hospital most of the day

UPDATE - Nan has broken her hip and is having surgery tomorrow so my posting may be a little erratic for a while as will be busy with our grandparents needs. Fingers crossed all goes well for her..

Hello everyone, cant believe its thursday again. Always have the best of intentions to craft and catch up with peeps blogs but 24hr never seems enough anymore, and I don't even work ROFL. So today over at the LOTV we have a new challenge for you. Nice and easy this week, we would like to see your "favourite colours". Well I do love a pink card and here it is. Used Rosie Posie as she's one of my favourites and coloured her with Copics. The papers are the new MME Hazel Paper Pad. The card blank is also new and both are available at Crafty Emma's Store. Had 2 new gadgets to play with yesterday. The first was my new Pink Slice Elite. Love my old one but this is so much quicker, quieter and cleaner. Had to get the magnetic attachment to, which I love. The second was my new Krups Coffee maker. Had a Tassimo before and have to say this machine is so stylish and makes fabulous drinks. So all in all I'm a happy bunny.

This weeks LOTV Prize is a £10 voucher to spend on the website. We will also be doing sneak peaks from next week. Yes, more new stamps out in a few weeks and they are just adorable. The LOTV Shop is just bursting with lush stamps!!!

My poor Zoe is off sick again today. Full of cold, sore throat so lots of tlc from mummy.
Oh, and I also got 2 x Top 3's. One was my Magnolia card and the other was my LOTV Card from 3rd Feb.

A list of challenges;
Charisma - Spring Has Sprung 
PaperCrafting Journey - Anything Goes '
Paper Sundaes - Pick your Sunday Topping (flowers/pink) 
Creative Cottage - Fabulous Floral '
Craft Your Passion - Use Pink 
Paper Pretties - Card for a Child 
Scrap Creations - Spring Fever
Stamps & Fun - Anything Goes
Secret Crafter - A Stamped Flower

Not the best of days so am going to sit with Zoe for a while for a few cuddles.
Have a great day!
