LOTV DT Card & Challenges!



Hello again everyone. Its officially summer here in the UK but I think they've got it wrong. Even got my winter coat out to walk the dog last night as there was a definite chill in the air. 
Anyway back to this weeks new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog. Donalda has a fantsic sketch and heres my interpretation. The papers are from the new BG "Out of Print".  I am in love with this paper pad and will be ordering more soon. For a change I have coloured the stamp "Daisy Chain" from the latest realises with Promarkers, adding Stickles to the flowers and edging with Derwent Coloursoft Pencil and Sansador. Wild Orchid Flowers, Bazzill, Gold Viva Pearl Pen and Punches Leaves also added. The sentiment is of course also LOTV.

                                               Cant wait to see what you do with this weeks sketch and there is certainly a lot more inspiration to be had from my teams over at the LOTV Challenge Blog.

A list of challenges.
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Fun in the Sun
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Ai Factory - Use Teddybears
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch/and or Outdoor Fun
Crafty Creations - Let it Shine
Deep Ocean - Flowers
Everybody Art - Anything Goes
KB Cute Monday - Favourite Embellishments (has to be flowers and stickles)
Totally Stampalicious - Something Old Something New (new image, old punches)
Whoopsi Daisy - Pile on those Flowers
Card Makin Mama's - With/For a Child

Our garden is slowly making progress. The new deck area is almost finished but about a week behind due to the amount of bad weather we have had. Decided not to dwell on it anymore. It will all come together eventually, though I was hoping it to be completed by the end of the month. Good things come to those who wait. Well gotta think positive or else I'll cry lol

Enjoy the rest of your week and back soon!
Hugs
