LOTV DT Card & Challenges.

Morning Peeps, very wet here today. Well its finally December and I dont know about you but a surge of panic has come over me. Thankfully I've done alot of christmas shopping on the internet but I should pull my finger out and get to the shops.
Today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "Anything But A Christmas Card". Some may give a sigh of relief, christmas overload???
Sorry its not the best photo. I'm taking them outside for the time being and just keeping my fingers crossed.
For my card I have used "Summer - Lovely Lillies". She has been coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils. The papers are BG Hello Luscious. Lots of Dies and embellishments from my stash and a LOTV Sentiment.

Heres a few challenges I'd like to enter my card into;
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Anything Goes
Diva's By Design - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Cooking It Up With Katie - Anything Goes
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
OLLCB - Lots of Sparkle
Sweet Stampin - Dies & Punches
Southern Girls - Ribbon Madness
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes

Theres still time to enter my BLOG CANDY if you are interested.

Am trying to go threw every room and have a good sort out before christmas. Got alot of my craft stash out of my dining room and into my craftroom. Cant believe how big it looks in there now and no clutter. Another 6 rooms to go and I should be done - Yikes!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and all the nice comments I got about my new DT position. Cant wait...

Anyone a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I've seen a few things in the online catalogue and would love to give someone an order, may need a catalogue first though
