As you know we had Laurie as our Guest Designer for the hop and wouldn't you know it, she loved being on the team so much she sent me an email that night begging (embarrassing I know!) to be on the DT full time. I was trying to think of a way to let her down gently when the postie arrived the next morning with a note and a blank cheque from Laurie telling me to name my price! Well after going to so much trouble I really couldn't say no now could I lol. So now Laurie is a fully fledged Ladybug yaaaayyyy :-D
Today's challenge has been set by our Amazing Amanda! She opted for Fall Colours and/or Fancy Folds ie Tent, Tri-Fold, Easel etc (you don't have to do both). You'd think it would be easy when you're told exactly what to do but could I find pp I was happy with?? It took me forever BUT I got there in the end....see what you think.
I'm trying to use stamps that haven't seen ink in a while and Best Friends Nikki is one of them. I used MME pp from the Bloom & Grow series, Bazzill and PTI kraft cs, my new MS border punch, MFT flower die and Marianne leaf die
I think Nikki and her friend look a bit glammed up for walking Buttercup...I certainly don't wear my sparkly tops or tracksuits when I take Rocky and Ruby out...not that I have sparkly tracksuits cuz I don't lol
Now I know it's not good to boast about something cuz it might just come back and bite you in the bum!! My colouring took a turn for the worse after I was blowing my horn about my Magnum Remote Control card the other day. I just couldn't get the blending right. Can someone tell me why some Copics blend perfectly yet some colours that should in theory blend, take the colour away making blending almost impossible???!! My gripe is with YG97, YG95 & YG91 with YG 91 being the culprit!
I love my new Marianne flower and leaf dies I got from Dies to Die for last week. The leaf is gorgeous and does look flabulous done in felt but it's VERY fragile because the outline are quite thin. It cuts like butter but you have to be very careful when removing the inside bits. I lost count of the number of leaves I threw out..you can see in the top one that one of the 'veins' has torn slightly hmph!
IRL the card looks much better. I haven't been using my tent to take pictures lately because a) it ends up becoming a fixture on the dining room table and b) I broke one of the lights but I'm going to have to get it fixed because I'm just not happy with my pictures lately. No amount of Photoshop is making them better!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges please:

That's it from me for today. I hope you enjoy what the Ladybugs have created for you this week and will join us in Amanda's challenge.
