LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Its not the weather we had yesterday. I sat in the garden and got a bit of colour on me but today is very cloudy and the rain has just started. At least I dont have to water the new lawn.
Today over at the LOTV Challenge Blog we have nice and easy challenge for you."Roses". Bet theres lots of gardens full of them so show them on your cards and pop on over to the LOTV Challenge Blog. 
I am the proud owner of all 168 Spectrum Noir Pens and this is my first card I have used the pens to colour. I highly recommend them if you are a Copic/Promarker Lover. Love the nib but can be a bit juicy so when applying be aware when working round the edges, especially with darker colours. I love the added colour chart that can be downloaded and it even states what set the pen is in so no more rummaging threw a box full of pens looking for the colour needed. All my box sets are labelled in colour tones anyway and all the individual 6 packs I have in 2 storage cases (available from Crafters Companion).

A few challenges;
Ai Factory - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - lowers, Flowers, Flowers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Clear It Out - Summer is Here
Tuesday Throwdown - Summertime
Mami Doodles- Flowers
Kaboodle Doodle - In the Garden
The Crazy Challenge - The Sun is Out
Wild Orchid Crafts - Beary Special
Card & Scrap -Summer
Cutie Sunday - Flower Power
Creative Inspiration - Summertime
Come and Get It - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Summer Fun
Colour Create - Pink,Green & White
Divas by Design - Summer is Here
Little Darlings - Girly
Stampavie & More - Summer
CYDA - Summertime

A quick post today, I have ton of chores to get threw today so best crack on and hopefully get some time for blog hopping later but the internet keeps dropping out (probably coz of weather)
Enjoy the rest of your day
