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

{SCREAM} It's here...TLT!! But it's not just your average TLT, it's a new release with a Blog Hop thrown in for extra fun!!!

Ok, here's the scoop...

First the Hop.. all the DT have not only had to use the challenge theme, but they have also each used one of the new images. There are 4 in all and you'll agree when you see their creations the new images are just FLABULOUS!

The rules of the Hop are simple....

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

b) leave a comment on the challenge blog once you have finished the hop.

c) If you have a blog, 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 First Prize is all 4 images in the new release and we have 4 Runner Up prizes of one new image each. Winners will be chosen at random!

The hop will close 12pm midday GMT on Monday 2nd MAY and the winner will be announced at 9am GMT on Tuesday 3rd MAY..Good luck!!

I said there was going to be a surprise guest and there is...Jeanie aka The Spotted Chick!!!! I was so happy I was able to bribe get Jeanie to play along with us this week lol and since none of us have seen each other's makes (The girls are supposed to send their pics to me but only one has hmph!) it's all the more exciting for us!

There are 2 ways to win a prize .. you can just play along with the hop or enter the challenge .. and for the very brave you can do both!

Right...I think that's all the 'official' stuff out of the way...you should have arrived to me from my Lovely Ladybug Anita...if you've lost your way head back to the start at the flabulous Pam and work your way from there.

 

The theme of the challenge is Fashion...lol it's pretty obvious when you see the images! The new release is called Shoes n' Bags...I don't know many girls that don't love their shoes and handbags and thought it time I brought out some images. Each set has a pair of shoes and a bag of some shape and size AND 3 sentiments...what more could you ask for? These have been drawn by a fantastic local illustrator (that's 3 from Glasgow!) Rona Innes and I am over the moon with how they've turned out. It's almost like she got inside my head which isn't necessarily a good thing lol.

 Here's my card....



This is the Ruffle shoe and handbag set. I adore this but was quite daunted when I stamped it out and realised I would have to make those ruffles look well....like ruffles lol. I think I did an ok job :-D

I love this pp...It's from MME's Stella Rose 6 x 6 pad which I bought from Hayley (along with another 4 shhhh!) 



There is a slight problem with my card which I didn't realise until I'd coloured it and put it all together. There will be a small change to the shoe on the left when you buy this set...the heel strap will be slightly higher. I sent the wrong image to the manufacturer when I requested some samples and of course forgot when I made my card. The other Ladybugs who have used this image will have the correct one :-D

I used some tiny gold nailheads for the stud detail

 


and used the same nailheads in my flowers



Ain't it true!!

So that's my card...what do you think? I hope you're enjoying the images so far :-D From here you're heading to the amazing {squawk} Jeanie!

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Delicious Doodles   - Anything Goes
Let's Ink It Up - Show us Your Stitching
Craft Your Passion - Show Us Your Layers
House of Gilli - Layers and Stitching


Don't worry if you don't win because as an added bonus you can buy the new Shoes n' Bags stamps for a special price of £5.50 (£6.50 thereafter) until Monday May 2nd.

One more thing...Thank you soooooo much for all your entries for last weeks challenge. We couldn't believe there were so many...246 to be exact!!! I'm just waiting for the RSI compensation claims to come in lol. Also a big welcome to all our new followers :-D All the winners are announced on the Challenge Blog so grab the banner if you're a Top 3 winner and if you've won the overall challenge, email me with the stamp of your choice (£6.50 value and not including the new release) at ladybugcraftsink@aol.com and where you'd like me to send it :-D

Thanks for stopping by today
