TLT - Tam's Challenge - Sketch

Gooooooooood morning! How are you all this fine Tuesday morning? Tuesday? Yup it's TLT and this week it's Tam's turn. Tams has been recovering from back surgery but that's not stopped her making her card for the challenge. She's chosen a sketch which I personally loved and hope you all will too. Before I crack on with my card I want to remind you to check the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of last weeks winners. I want to thank all of you who entered...there was a gazillion of you...and continue to enter our challenges. I love popping in to see who has entered....there's a lot of familiar names and also some new ones who have found their way to LCI and maybe there are some of you that are too shy to enter. Why???? We would love to see your work and it's a great way of 'meeting' fellow crafters and making new friends.

This week is Amanda's first TLT as a permanent Ladybug. I know she wasn't gone for long...all of 1 day lol but we couldn't let her go!

Onto Tam's sketch that's been designed by Maya Stenshagen...pretty cool huh!

And here's my card...

I'd like to enter it in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - Spots & Dots
Wags n' Whisker - Ribbon & Pearls

The idea for Magnum holding the numbers from the Sentimental Number set popped into my head one day last week and I couldn't wait to try it out. I think it worked pretty well and love how it came together. What do you think of the new ribbon? OMG...isn't it full of megalicious gorjossity? This is the chocolate brown with the cutest tiny pink pom poms. It comes wired and I took the wire out but to be honest I don't think you have to.

Here's a close up of the big guy. At first I thought I'd coloured him too dark but it's grown on me and I really like it now.

After I coloured and cut the numbers out I applied some GA to give them a shine. If you're looking for glitter you ain't going to find any lol. Don't worry...I'll make up for it with my next card!

Aren't these the cutest pom poms! I can't wait to use the other colour now :-D

There's plenty of flabulous inspiration from the Ladybugs so make sure you check them out. There's been another computer meltdown but hopefully Mary J will get it sorted and have her card posted today or later on in the week. Sue's dad took really unwell on Mother's Day and is in hospital so please keep her in your thoughts.

That's it from me....thanks for popping in.

Catch ya later x

Brill card Kerry!
Lol about the offset circle...of course I was twisting your arm round your back! ;) Sorry it didn't work out right first time...truth be told, mine didn't either! It just changed how I made the card instead!
Good luck next time and let me know when you've done it so I can see it :)
