LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Hello everyone, today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is "I Believe in Fairies".
I have used Dandelion Clock, she has been coloured with Copics and Prismas. I am where possible, now going to list items used at the bottom of my page.

I attended the LOTV Colour Class on Sunday where I finally got to meet Bev and of course the lovely Jacqui. I learnt a thing or to and have some cards still to make up with the stamps that we coloured. Unfortunately I've not done much crafting this week. We have our Nans Funeral tomorrow (friday), but have done a bit of colouring as I'm trying new things.

Heres my list of challenges;
Paper Sundaes - Pop it Up
Crafts & Me - Gems & Pearls
My Mums Craft Shop - Favourite Colours
House of Gilli -  Flowers
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
PaperPlay - Blossoms & Blooms
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch/Or Her Comes the Sun
Creative Craft World - 3 or more Flowers
I Did it Creations - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Crew - Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - Use a Die Cut
Cutie Sunday - Green/Pink
ASFOS - Things with Wings
PaperCrafting Journey - Anything Goes/Your Favourites (lotv)
KB Challenges - So Girly
Sweet Stampin - Sketch or In the Garden

I have candy posted at the top of my blog. Please feel free to enter!

My eldest daughter Jessica leaves school today. We were thinking this morning how it only seems like yesterday we were taking her to the first day of school. Another milestone. Still lots of exams over the next few weeks then back to 6th form in september.
Thanks for stopping by and apologies if I don't get to visit as many of you as I'd like over the next few days. Hopefully once the funeral is out of the way and were off camping next week we will be able to move on.

What a week I've had, storms took down electricity, so we had 3 days without power, and obviously no internet! Now Mr Blogger isnt playing nicely, so its like pulling teeth to comment! lol.

Love your card, bright, girly and full of gorgeousness. I think this is my favourite LOTV image, I just keep going back to it. Your colouring is fantastic, and your eye for colour is amazing. Love your work.

Have a great trip!
