Ladybugs Go Digital Blog Hop!

Oh My Goodness!!! I am so pleased that you called by to check out the AMAZING NEWS ! The Ladybugs are going Digital! YES! you heard me right! The new release Magnum Digis are available STRAIGHT AWAY!!! and they are only £2 a shot,result or what !  You can see what you like and be colouring within a few minutes!
(Can you tell that I'm more than a little excited about it)
So to celebrate the news the ladybugs are having a new release Blog Hop. If you didn't find your way to me from the lovely Amanda's Blog you need to find your way back to the LCI Challenge blog to start your journey. The theme for this week is Animals.

For my card I got to use the fantastic new image "Remote Control Magnum"  The thing I love about using Digis is that you get to make the image the size that you want so I went LARGE and cut around my image after placing the top of the chair on the fold of the card. I also paper pieced the chair,adding shading with a C1 Copic. Now I don't know what it's like in your house,but in mine,I never get to touch the remote control, so I thought it would make a fun  card to give him in doors for our anniversary.(I'm hoping he sees the funny side of it.) I couldn't make up my mind on the sentiment, in fact the card took no time to make,it was the words that took the time!

If you can think of some words that go better,I still have a week to change them ;)
So I'm hoping that you like my card, the next stop on the hop is Laurie,the "New Bug on the Block" So be sure to call by and leave her some welcome love! There's great prizes to be won remember,a full set of new releases for one lucky crafter and a digi of their choice goes to 5 others,good luck!         Have fun on the hop! 

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Cards for Men 19,Anything but Square,
Digi Darla,Special treat( crisps and coke)
HSC40,T Time,(television),
MIM55,Anything goes,
Squirrel and Fox 1,Anything goes,

What a wonderful card! super cute! I like what you have on the inside i think i would change it just a little to something like:

somethings just belong together
remotes and television
you and I (or should it be Me - grammer has never been my strong suit!!)

Have a scrap- happy day!
