New Challenge at LCI and News!

My post titles must be the most boring ones in blogland!!  I can never think of anything exciting to call them!

Anyway, HI!  As my post title says I am here today for another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink!  Before I get into the challenge we have some good news.  Our 3 Guest Designers - Diane, Catherine and Sally - are now all permanent Ladybugs so pop over and give them some Ladybug love!

I have more exciting news below so keep reading!  Firstly the challenge for this week has been set by our lovely Julie and the theme is:

"Loves Me, Loves Me Not"

There is a slight change in the rules going forward.  We will be offering two prizes each fortnight.  The first is the usual random winner who wins a prize and the second is a random winner who uses a LCI image.  So onto my card:


I used one of the new Love and Marriage images, called The Kiss, which you can get as a digi image here. I used a new embossing folder that I got just before Christmas which I thought was lovely with all the hearts!  I just added some red felt roses and ribbon.  The sentiment is a freebie from a magazine.


So onto the last bit of exciting news!  Our next challenge on 14 February will incorporate a NEW RELEASE and a BLOG HOP!  Grab the banner below and pop onto your side bar and then wait for the fun to begin on 14 February!  

You may even start seeing some sneak previews of the new images before then just to get you in the mood!  The images are fabulous, you won't be disappointed!!


Lastly, before I go, you only have TODAY to get over to the LCI store and purchase your rubber stamps at half price.  Sale ends midnight tonight! 


I think that's it!!  Pop over to the main challenge blog to see if you were a winner from our Bows challenge, they were some amazing entries!  


Have a great day and I will see you soon!


Love

Feeling Blue

Good afternoon all

Well I'm not really feeling blue but was in a blue mood when making this card!  I have made this card with another Saturated Canary image from Krista Smith.  She is called Thank You and you can get her here





The challenge this week over at Saturated Canary is to use dies/punches so I used my Nestabilities on this card.  The swirly corner is from Make It Crafty (I don't know why I don't use this more often) and the paper is from Authentique called Journey.  I followed the fab sketch at Quixotic Paperie this month.  I hope you like it. 

Well I was very good yesterday and only bought a lip gloss!!  I had a lovely day though!

OK, better get on.  Hope you all have a great afternoon.

Best Day Ever

Happy Weekend Everyone!

I am just getting ready to meet up with some friends, we will be popping into Harrods for a nose round before the sale ends and might end up with a glass of champagne in my hand during the course of the day!  Although I probably won't be buying anything as my printer has decided to stop working, ARRGGGHHH, so may have to spend money on a new one.  Why does everything happen at once?!  Had to spend out a lot of money on the car last week and it is still making a funny noise! 

Anyway I am not going to think about that now!  Firstly I just wanted to say thank you to the ladies over at Sugar Nellie, I won some candy yesterday after their blog hop!  The blog hop was show casing their new Puppy Love images and I am using one of them today:




Can you see the cute little mouse at the bottom of the image!  Now I experimented with these colours a bit, not usually my colour but I wanted to use the paper which is from Basic Grey Life of the Party which had lots of little parcels on it which I thought went well.  Maybe I shouldn't have used so much yellow!!  The image is called Best Day Ever which you can get from Funky Kits here

Right, best start getting ready.  Have a great day everyone!

Love

Bows at LCI!

Good Morning!

I hope your week has started well. Its so cold here at the moment!  Can't complain though cos its lovely and sunny at the same time! 

We have a brand new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink today, where did the last two weeks go!!  Anyway, our Sue has set our challenge today, she would like to see:

"Bows"

Sue really is the queen of bows so I wanted to make mine big and bold!  Here is my card:






I am very stingy with my ribbon most of the time, so I was breaking out into a cold sweat using this much ribbon on one card!!  I think I might just keep the card for myself!  The ribbon is of course from Stamping Up and took about 2 hours to get the bow right!

I have used a blue and brown colour combination again which I am really loving at the moment!  I have used Original Nikki, the sentiment is from Pollycraft and is perfect for Nikki don't you think!  I have used papers from Echo Park Candy Shoppe, Dots & Stripes, I love this pack, I have just bought some more in different colours.   I just added some glamour dust and pearls to finish off. 

Now don't forget that you can buy all stamps at half price until the end of January (does not include digital images).  So get on over there! 


When you have finished shopping hop on over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the Ladybugs, they are all awesome!

Have a great day.

Its My Party

Good Evening All. 

Where on earth has the weekend got to, I can't believe its Sunday evening.  I haven't really had a very productive day but hey ho, some days are like that! 

I have made a card today for the Lili's Little Fairies challenge and this week they want us to use our favourite LOTV stamp.  It was a little tricky to pick one as they are all lovely but there is one that I do love to use, here she is:





I love her attitude and style!  She is looks so cool in her dress and boots, and I love her tiara!  She is called Its My Party and you can get her here.  I teamed her with MME Sixy By Six Honey Cake, added some glitter and used my fabby Loopy Bloom die again! 

Well enjoy the rest of your evening.  I am just going to flop in front of the TV!  Last Sherlock tonight which I am looking forward to! 

Love & Hugs
