TLT - Pam's Challenge - Celebration


Woo hoo...it's TLT time and we have got lots of inspiration for you but before that I want to thank you for all your flabarooni entries. I think it was a toughie picking the winners this week and I'm so glad it wasn't me that had to do the picking!!! You might wanna head on over to the Challenge Blog and see if you're one of the winners. If you're the overall winner email me at ladybugcraftsink@aol.com with the stamp you'd like (£6.50 value) and where you want it sent to :-D

This weeks Celebration challenge was chosen by our lovely Pam which came at just the right time because I needed to make a baby card for Jean's niece's daughter! I mentioned this in my post on Sunday and here it is...


If you haven't noticed I'm really into kraft cs these days...I can't get enough of it!
 Little Jack chose the perfect day to arrive...last week's TLT ... I wonder if that's a sign lol. I think I'll make him an honorary Ladybug or should that be Babybug! 


Every time I colour up one of the Baby Baby images I say it's my favourite. I've been really concentrating on improving my colouring these days. I've been watching a lot of video tutorials on Suzanne Dean's blog and if you're into your Copics I would highly recommend you take a look. I know I've got a long way to go but I've picked up a lot of tips that have really helped my colouring. 


I stamped the sentiment onto the faux suede ruffle ribbon...it was a case of holding my breath as I did it because I had the whole card stitched and assembled when I decided to do it lol.


I LOVE my flower...I used Coconut Ice felt and added a small pearl to the centre.


And finally I Mary J'd the inside :-D

I hope you like my card and it inspires you in some small way. I've got some news to share with you tomorrow....I hope you'll be as excited as me when you find out what it is!!!

Congratulations to all last weeks winners and I hope to see even more entries this week. What are you waiting for...you know you want to!!

Thanks for popping in....have a great day.

Catch ya later x
