Ladybug Grand Finale

Sad, sad news today, after 5 years, the lovely Queen Ladybug Kerry has decided to close the doors of
 "Ladybug Crafts Ink"
I am so going to miss being a Ladybug, such a talented group of ladies and I've been lucky enough to be part of the team. Kerry is going to be enjoying spending lots of time with that gorgeous grandson of hers and who can blame her, he's such a cutie!
The final challenge will run until the 30th of September and the theme for this is
"Use Your Favourite Image!"

Many of the retired Ladybugs have joined us for the final challenge, we are having a Ladybug party before we hang up our wings for the last time! 

One of my all time and most used Ladybug images.
Cheers Kerry!




Kerry will also be having a
 Closing Down Sale,
so why not grab yourself some Ladybug cling stamps whilst you can at the bargain price of  £1, it will be your last ever chance! (Sniff,sniff,sniff, totes emosh!)
There are some ribbons and other embellishments available in the sale too!




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Markerpop 51, Copics/anything goes,
GI August, Birthday.

I'm going to be sharing some of my previous makes over the next few weeks, share some of the wonderful images that I've been lucky enough to have been able to use over the last few years.

Just Add Some Ribbon, You Could Win £40


The challenge for September at Lavinia Stamps is
Now that's a nice easy one for you Lavinia lovers!

You don't need to have a blog to enter as the challenge now accepts email entries!





It could be worth £40 to you, all you need to do is ink up those Lavinia stamps!




I found the most perfect addition to
 my Bullrushes ,
 some tiny seed pearls and a teeny tiny sprinkle of flock for them to stand in.




I thought it'd be fun to give the fairy something to dangle from her outstretched hand so I masked the surrounding area and stamped just the one set of wings from the washing line.
I wanted to add a sentiment but my printer had other ideas, scanning my eyes over the pages of an old, broken book, I found some that I felt  suited the stamped scene.



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
TSM99, Special Occasion,
TCCB207, Boys,
TPP211, Tic,Tac,Toe, Top line.

More Bloomin Flowers!

I can't lie, I just love the Bloomin Fabulous digis from Ladybug Crafts! 
A bit of a change for me though, I used design paper!
A tulle bow gives an almost vintage look.

A Little Distressing


Another simple make from me, I made this one for my BIL's birthday today. I seem to be using this embossing folder lots at the mo.




I love the look of those ??? Fake brads???? That crafters are using lots at the mo, unfortunately I haven't got any of those but rooting around in the drawer I found some puffy stickers, nothing in suitable colours but I soon fixed that with a bronze metallic Sharpie.

Name Card


I thought I'd share my latest

I created the card using the weld option then also cut each letter out individually so that I could create dimension and interest. The balloon is a long neglected Quickutz die cut.




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Bloggers, Birthday,
Brown Sugar 107, Anything goes,
SACC70, Anything goes.
