TLT - My Challenge - AND it's a blog hop AND it's a new release!!

What more could you ask for lol?? I hope you're ready for some fun and inspiration. My Lovely Ladybugs have been busy creating some gorgeous cards and projects for you. How do I know..cuz I got a sneak peek at a couple of them and OH MY!


Ok, lets get started!

The Hop.. all the DT have used the new images and no one has seen what anyone has made (except my little sneak peek lol) - so we are all as excited as you to see the projects.
These are the rules of the Hop ...

a) Visit each of the DT members in order and leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts.

b) Leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling us which is your favourite image from the new release.

c) Display the blog hop banner which is at the top of this post on your blog either in a post or on your side bar.

The prize is a full set of the new BABY BABY stamps along with some coordinating goodies from Hayley at FUNKY FARM SCRAPBOOK BARN



 who incidentally also has a fabulous 10% discount for all Ladybug friends using the code TLTLADYBUGS
The hop will close 9am GMT on Monday 17th January
with the winner being announced at 9am GMT on Tuesday 18th January.

The second way you can win a prize of the full set of BABY BABY stamps is by entering the challenge this week of which I have chosen the theme. Can you guess what it is?? Yup, it's Baby and since Baby Baby is only being released today you can use any baby image you like. 

To celebrate the new release you will be able to purchase the set from today for one week only for the special price of £6.99 (rrp £8.99) so you could still use an LCI image :-D This offer ends Monday 17th January so don't miss out!

You do not need to have a blog to win - just email us a picture of your card/project before the closing date to lcichallengeblog@aol.com and we'll post it for you :-D

So don't forget, you have 2 chances to win... you can JUST enter the hop, or JUST enter the challenge or if you are game - enter them BOTH but you can only enter once!

Right...enough of the rules, onto the hop! You should have arrived from the megamazing Anita... If not check back to the Challenge Blog to see the order.

I found Baby Baby's flabulous illustrator Laura Murray at Craft World when I was demonstrating back in September last year (feels weird saying that lol). Her mom Elaine was sitting at my table and we got chatting and she told me her daughter was an illustrator. I seized the moment, got Laura's numbers and Baby Baby is the result!

This is what I came up with...


I love this little one peeping out of her buggy. I stamped her on my new
Xpress Copic cs (still not sure about it) and coloured her with my Copics. It took 5 attempts cuz I couldn't get the right pink...still not all that about the colour but I wasn't going to start again!



No baby card is complete without some bling so I glittered up the buggy and put Swarovski crystals on the bow and wheels!


This is one of the 7 sentiments that come in the set

Ok, let me know whatcha think of Baby Baby...I hope you'll love the set as much as I do. From here hop on over to Pinky...she's not too keen on baby cards..are you kidding!!! She's the queen of baby cards and I know she'll have something special for you!

Have fun on the hop and I hope you'll get plenty of inspiration for your entry next week!

Catch ya later x
