The Day Has Finally Arrived!!!!!

It's been a New release fortnight  at Ladybug Crafts with two new names joining the LCI image family.

                                   "Josh and Jess" 

 If you're wanting to make a card for a teenager you are sure to find a suitable image amongst them!
The rest of the team have made some amazing cards so far and with only two more days left to go I'm thrilled that you've called by to see my cards. I have been so excited about today, it's been agony for me waiting patiently for my day to come!

 If you would like the chance to Win one of today's images, all you need to do is leave a comment on today's post on the challenge blog and wait patiently like I did but only till tomorrow lol! that's when the winner will be revealed!

There is still time to join the TLT Anything Goes Challenge. 
and more amazing prizes up for grabs!


I coloured Xbox Josh Using Copics, fussy cut him out,

Layered  up my papers and cut an aperture before placing Josh over it.


I used various dies to make my star badges,echoing those on the image. I also used Sizzix dies to cut the numbers.


 On to my second card using "Coat of Paint Jess". I paper pieced the wallpaper in the image, coloured Jess using Copics and did an out of the box cut using Nestabilities and xcut dienamiques.

I also made little bottles of nail varnish using nestability circles to match the colours used in the image.


I embossed my card blank before adding all the elements.


The acetate is recycled packaging and the sentiment is an LCI stamp.


 Hope my card was worth the wait!

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
CPF37, Anything goes,
DTBST117, Paper piecing,
MMCS49, Digital,(2 entries),
Paper Shelter, Paper piecing,
Scrapalicious USA, Fussy Cut,

Thanks for stopping by,

Your cards are so worth the wait Julie...I don't think I love one better than the other. The aperature is so clever and the stripey paper at the bottom looks like a carpet. Another clever idea is the wallpaper...would never have thought of that lol. Another clever idea is the nail polish bottles...you're just too clever!!! Your colouring on both is fab :-D xx

ironing? Whats that? LOL
I generally make my cards a month ahead of when I need them for Dt projects, saves me stressing and then months like this month when I'm super busy I don't have to think about it. Then when I have a quiet week I craft almost non stop. :)I also craft on evenings instead of watching telly.(or while watching telly)
Great teen cards Julie!!
