LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Hello everyone, wish there was more hours in the day. Been having trouble finding some craft time. We spent the bank holiday decorating Zoes bedroom and just been manic with the kids at home, but all back at school and no major plans so things may get back on track next week. 
Thankyou all for the birthday wishes and cards I received. They are gorgeous.
Its a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is 
"Animal Antics"
 Did you know there are more new releases out on the 11th May?. Cute and Cuddly, they are perfect for mens cards and I love them all!
Couldn't resist giving you a sneak peak of one of them. This is Cheers Bear and coloured with Copics. I used the sketch from last weeks Sugar Bowl. The papers are the new Fancy pants - Beach Bum and the other stamps used are a mix of PaperBag Studio and Paper Artsy. Distressed the edges with a Chalk Ink Pad and used Viva Pearl Pen and a few Pearls.

A list of challenges my card fits into;
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch and/or One for the Boys
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
KB Challenges - Use Dots
The Crazy Challenge - Cards for Men
Stamps R Us - For the Men in our Lives
Theres Magic in the Air - Birthday Challenge
Pear Tree Designs - Free for All
PollyCraft - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Scrappy Frogs - Anything Goes
Ellephantstic - Birthday/Party
PaperCutz - Anything Goes
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything Goes

Off to catch up with some of you,
