LOTV DT Card + Special Guest & Challenges!!!!

 Another thursday and only a few more days left of the school holidays. I have managed a bit of crafting and that includes making todays card for the LOTV Challenge Blog and todays new theme is "Circles". Well how could I resist giving you a sneak peek of one of the many new releases due out in March. This is called "Toadstool for Two". Aren't they adorable and so much fun colouring. I have used my Copics & Prisma Pencils and used my new Grand Nesties for the Circle. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid.

You need to pop on over to the LOTV Idea's To Inspire Blog. We will be giving lots more sneak peaks and you can order your new stamps from the LOTV Shop from 9th March.

Again, not the best of photo's but I tried my best. Roll on spring, I love the warmer weather.
On another note my nan is doing well. She got threw surgery and is doing as well as can be expected at her age. Not sure when she is being released yet. I've tons of new stash to play with but with my grandparents and the kids off school I'm amazed I've managed any crafting at all. But needs must and its my escape route where I can switch off and absorb myself with my cardmaking.

Heres a few challenges;
Little Red Wagon - Animals'
Crafty Creations - At the Bottom of out Garden Lives (bunnies)'
IncyWincy - Punches or Dies
Creative Cottage - Fabulous Florals'
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes'
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Spring Flowers Everywhere'
Copic Creations - Warm Colours
Guylou's - Anything Goes'
Sweet Stamps - Flowers

And this card has been made by my very sweet daughter Zoe who is 8 yrs old. All mummy did was trim the papers as directed and Zoe done all the rest. I think she's done a fab job and am very proud of her. Even more so as her card is up on this weeks challenge at the LOTV Challenge Blog. Her first GDT.

And don't forget my Blog Candy in the post above which is open to all.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today and will be back on saturday with more.
