LOTV Dt Card & Challenges...

Hello everyone, firstly I would like to thankyou for all the lovely comments on my Canvas in the post below. Wow, so many and I think thats what keeps me motivated most of the time!
 What gorgeous weather we are having in the South East of England so I had to reflect and go all Spring Like with my card. Today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks themes called "Punch It". I have used 5 different punches on my card. 1 x SU, 1 MS Border Punch, 2 MS Punches and the swirl (don't know brand). 
The stamp "Little Ballerina" from LOTV has been coloured with Copics, Pencils and Sansador. I've added lots of Pearls, Stickles and my gorgeous Daisy D Faux Stitching Tape Pen. Have dotted over the Butterflies with a White Souffle Pen. The papers are "Prima Annalee" and the Yellow Flowers are also Prima.

Its not often I add a sentiment, usually leave them off then add whats needed but I do love the LOTV Sentiment Circles and don't use them enough.

Heres a list of challenges;
Crafty Creations - In Stitches
Lets Ink It Up - Dies Cuts/Punches

ScrapBook Sisters - Anything Goes

No major plans for me today, maybe a bit of blog hopping while the kids are at school. 
Had to go to the dentist Tuesday for an extraction. Didn't go to well as the anaesthetic didn't work and the bit of tooth he did remove had me screaming the place down, so looks like a referral to the hospital which will take months. We had to get Jessica's Toes done privately as the waiting list on the NHS was so long but I refuse to keep putting my hand in my pocket so will sit and wait for the NHS, but it looks like it wont be till the end of the year!! (RANT OVER).

Enjoy your day whatever your up to and hope all those going/gone to any Craft Shows have a brilliant time.
