I am so happy the Challenge Blog has been received well and I do hope what ever your level of crafting, you will join in :-D Personally, I have never been on a DT or submitted my cards to a CB until I was pushed/shoved into (thanks Tams and Lisa!) setting up my own DT and now CB. I think it was because a couple of years ago (apart from a confidence issue) I had a bad experience after submitting a card for a competition and I swore I would never do it again. I suppose I can't very well not participate in my own now can I lol.
Didn't my girls do well yesterday! Their cards were fabulous and as Hayley said it was nice to see LCI stamps used in different styles. I was a bit dubious whether the stamps would cross over from whimsical to shabby/chic/vintage but it just shows you with a bit of time/imagination and a bad week at work in Sue's case (she took it out on her paper lol) what you can come up with. I think we were all encouraged by your comments so once again thank you.
As much as I tried, I didn't get anything crafty done today but I do have some exciting news to share with you. I have a lot in the pipeline in the coming months for new characters and new and much loved older characters but to make room I need to have a bit of a clearout. So tomorrow (Thursday) at 10am on Create and Craft (channel 671) Debbi Moore will be showcasing 3 Ladybug Crafts Ink kits for sale. The themes are Christmas, Celebration and Everyday. Christmas includes Fireside, Prezzie and Skating Nikki, Celebration includes Birthday, Winestool, Bride and Best Friends Nikki and the Everyday set includes Unwell, Slobbing, Mermaid and Ironing Nikki. If you want to grab a bargain why don't you check it out...I promise you won't be disappointed!
I have to get the invitations finished for Friday so I'd better get going. All I've got to do is silicone the thistles on to the front of the invites. It sounds easy but I've never used silicone before so I'm a bit worried I might make a hash of it and have to start all over! Wish me luck lol.
Catch ya later x
