TLT - Dominique's Challenge - It's a Blog Hop and a new release!!!

Hellooooooo!!! I'll apologise right now if this post is in anyway disjointed and confusing lol. I made my card last week and have waited till the last possible moment to write up the post as things have been a bit hectic at Stitches. The days have been long and our legs aching by the time the show finishes at 6 so it takes all our effort to walk to the car. Karen was feeling much better after getting an early night so she was in great form for the opening day. Sue arrived around 3 on Sunday and it's been brilliant meeting and getting to know her. She's doing a great job chatting to the customers...she's definitely got the gift of the gab lol!!! Hayley and her hubby arrived yesterday and here's the proof ....



We only need the other 8 Ladybugs and we'd have a swarm lol.

Anyway lets get going with this challenge. Today is our Guest Designer Domi's challenge. Her challenge was a recipe which is 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 image. At this point I'd like to thank Domi for being our guest for February...today is her last challenge and what a way to go out...a blog hop! And speaking of which you should have arrived here from Mary J. If not head back to the Challenge blog to start from the beginning

I was feeling quite smug that I managed to get my card done then panicked thinking I'd not followed the recipe. A quick check and realised I'd got it right...phew...don't you hate it when you start doubting yourself!

Now the rules of this hop are each Ladybug has been assigned a number and once you find them all (some you'll be told the number, other's you might have to search a little) add them up and email your total to lcichallengeblog@aol.com The winner will receive the whole of the new release (4 sets) and then there will be 4 winners each winning one of the new sets.

The new release is called BFF's (Best Friends Forever) and I hope you will like them. Each set consists of a main image, 2 small coordinating images and 3 sentiments. Each set will retail for £6.99 but you can pre-order them from today until March 8th for the special price of £5.99!

Ok...enough of the chat...here's my card...

 

Meet Phoebe & Olivia...they come with the sentiments BFF, You make me smile and So happy we're friends and two smaller images of a trio of daisies and a butterfly which can be used to make backgrounds.









So what do you think? Aren't they just the cutest little girls! I loved designing these images with Baby Baby's very talented illustrator Laura Murray.

As I'm the last on the hop make sure you get your calculator's out, get adding and email your answer in.

You'll also find out if you're a winner from last weeks challenge if you go to the Challenge Blog. We had some amazing entries and I'm sure the Ladybugs had a hard time choosing a winner.

Make sure you leave some Ladybug Love...we all love to read your comments!

Thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x
