Midway Blog Hop Reminder at LCI.

A quick reminder for you today that there's a

 on at Totally Ladybug Tuesday, this is a four week challenge this time as Kerry is giving us Ladybugs a bit of a break over the summer, LOL! Summer, who are we kidding, I even found myself wearing a cardi yesterday and I don't think my Umbrella has ever been used so much as it has these last few weeks.

I was treated to a pack of  pink Spectrum Noire pens at the weekend so I used them here, have to say that at first it felt extremely strange using the firm tips to colour with instead of the brush tips of the Copics but I'm definitely going to invest in some more, the thin tips were very precise and using the Copics blender and some firm pressure on the paper with my fingertip, any mistakes were easily rectified. Wish it would have been as easy to rectify my heavy handed addition of stickle as unfortunately it caused the printer ink to bleed slightly:(

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Hooked On Crafts 22, Christmas,
Lollipop 84, Christmas,
Love To Create 24, 3 of something,
MIM84, Anything goes,
TSG165, Christmas,
That's it from me for today except,

Thanks for stopping by,
