TLT - My Challenge - Favourite Stamp

Hello everyone! Boy have I missed TLT...mind you I don't know how I would have fitted it in last month! What with my menopausal drama's (Angus seems to be working :-D) and friends coming to stay and just life in general...phew, I need a holiday lol.

So let's get on with it....welcome to's great to be back. Because it was the summer hols and everyone would be busy I didn't think we'd get many entries for Sue's July Challenge - Summer Birthday's but boy we were swamped! You guys really outdid yourselves this time :-D Take yourself on over to the Challenge Blog to see if you're one of the winner's.

This month it's my turn to pick the challenge which is Favourite Stamp. I don't know what I was thinking when I chose that cuz asking me to choose my favourite stamp is like asking me to choose my favourite child!!! Of course my kids are forever accusing me of favouring one of the other's but I just keep telling them that they're ALL my favourite lol.

After much deliberation I chose Buttercup - In the doghouse. I just LOVE Buttercup (as I do all my other stamps lol)....this one is such fun to colour in. I have a confession to make before I show you my card. I made this card for one of my Ladybugs....I totally forgot Anita's birthday last month...think I was mid PB lol...I thought I had all the July birthday's wrapped up. I'm sorry Anita ... I hope you like your card :-D

Are you shocked it isn't square? I am lol. I got the pp from a Kaiser 6 x 6 pad that I picked up in Craft World the other week and I can see myself using it a lot. Some of the flowers in the pp are shiney...very lush

There's me in the doghouse for forgetting Anita's birthday lol

After seeing a lot of punched fences in blogland recently I was determined to dust mine off and use it...whether it suited or not!

So there you have it :-D Make sure you check out the other Ladybug's creations and leave some love....we LOVE Ladybug Love.

I regret to inform you that my Blogaversary candy and 'old' follower prize has remained {gasp} unclaimed!! I have contacted Random Org and have redrawn the winners and they are:

Main winner - SUSAN

'Old' Follower - KURLY-Q

Congratulations girls...I do hope you'll claim your prizes (you've got a week) otherwise I'm going to keep them for myself lol! Email me at  to let me know where you want your stash sent :-D

I think that's it from me for today. I'm going to spend the rest of the day making the STD cards...Nic wants them out this week!!! Little does she know Monday will be soon enough lol.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x

This is a fabulous "sorry" card, who wouldn't forgive you with this coming to them? Love the fence and the colouring is fab too.

Glad the old "M" problems are not too bad :)
