TLT - Anything Goes!

Goooooooood morning! Have you missed TLT as much as I have? It got a bit crazy leading up to Christmas so I think we were all in need of a break but we're back and all the Ladybugs are raring to go!

Thank you to everyone who entered our Song Title challenge set by Tams before Christmas.We had some flabulous entries and it was great to see you were able to craft over the holidays :-D Check our
Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winners!

To ease you in gently we decided this Challenge was going to be Anything Goes! It can be a card, box, book, whatever and what's even better is that you can win a prize with any image...not just an LCI one. How's that for a great start to the New Year?!

Before I show you my card I'd like to tell you that our DT has grown. Pami, our November GD loved being on the team so much that she inundated me with hundreds emails over the holidays begging, pleading and even offering me vast sums of money to give her a permanent place on our DT! So what's a girl to do? I said yes of course lol!!! it didn't really go down like that hee hee. No money exchanged hands and there was no begging or pleading (if there was to be it would be coming from me lol). We all just missed her and invited her back and thankfully she said yes :-D I hope you'll go and visit her blog and welcome her back.

We also have our lovely GD for January, Amber. Make sure you pop on over and give her a big Ladybug welcome :-D

Now onto my card. A friend ordered a boxed card for her daughter's 21st birthday before Christmas and this is what I came up with....

This is the front of the box. I kept it quite simple...thought I'd let the card do the talking lol. I started using my Bazzill Bling...I've had it for years and it's been collecting dust. I also used my Die-namics flower die...I just love that thing :-D

Here's what's you can see it's quite busy hence the simple box

I hope you're not tired of seeing barstool Winestool Nikki as three of us Ladybugs have inked her up...great minds and all that lol. I thought she was perfect to help celebrate a 21st. You might recognise the LO from the card I did here for Tam's challenge. I really liked the LO and since it was so close to Christmas (23rd) it saved me thinking of something else lol.

Nikki's dress cries out to be glitterfied and who am I not to comply lol.

Now, do you think you're up to the  Anything Goes Challenge? I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Next week is a biggie! It's a blog hop AND a new release AND it's MY challenge AND there's one or three prizes you might want to win lol :-D Grab the banner for your blog, though you don't have to have one to win, and tell everyone you know because I think you'll love this one!!

Finally, I hinted that I'm going to have a busy start to 2011 and I'm going to share that with you tomorrow so I hope you'll check back to share my news. I'm so terrified  excited I can't stand it lol.

Have a great TLT and thanks for stopping by :-D

Catch ya later x
