TLT - New DIGI Release & Blog Hop! - Lisa's Challenge - Spring is in the Air

How the Heck are you all? I am excited beyond excited. Have you ever been so excited you just can't stand it? Well that's me right now lol. Before I get stuck into all the details I'd like to thank everyone who entered our last challenge, Loves Me Loves Me not. It was great to see so many entries along with entries using LCI images of which one will win a prize :-D At some point make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you're one of our winners or Top 3's.



Ok, let's get started before I lose the plot lol. As the banner above says we've got a new DIGI release and I think by the sneak peeks over the last two weeks you will have guessed it has a flower theme. I have had the priviledge to work with an amazing illustrator on this release Jan White. Apart from being extremely talented she 'got' me very early on when we started working together earlier this year which has made this project a real pleasure.

As I've said in previous posts the Ladybugs have only seen the one image they were given so it's going to be as much as a surprise for them as it is for you.


So onto the rules of the Hop ...

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

b) There will be a LETTER to collect somewhere on the Challenge Blog and on each of the DT's blogs starting with ME - note these down in the order of the hop. At the end of the hop the letters you have collected will spell a word. Email us at lcichallengeblog@aol.com with the word you have spelt.

c) 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. Remember you DON'T have to have a blog to win a prize.

Prizes...did someone mention prizes???

Well.....The First Prize is THE WHOLE SHEBANG! That's ALL 9 DIGI images and 5 Runner's Up will receive 2 DIGI images of their choice and all winners will be chosen at random.
The hop will close 9am GMT on Monday 28th FEB and the winner will be announced at 9am GMT on Tuesday 1st MARCH.

OMG...let's get started lol!!!
The Lovely Lisa chose today's challenge, Spring is in the Air, which is perfect for the new release Floral Delight.

I adore my image and I loved colouring it in. It's called Ladybug Garden Delight...let me know what you think...


I printed out the image and coloured it in with my Copics before cutting it out with my Nesties. I bought some new Kraft cs at Craft Creations recently called Kraft Cover. I wasn't all that sure about it when it arrived as it was kraft on the outside and white one the inside but I guess that's why it's called Kraft Cover doh!! Anywho, I now love it ...this is the dark one but it also comes in a lovely paler shade. I've had the MS fence punch forever and thought it was perfect for the image. I only stitched a little...I know not like me at all! I thought I'd get a head start on my Mother's Day cards as it's not MD until May in North America though it's next month here. It wouldn't have been complete without a Loop Bloom :-D







So what do you thunk? I hope you will like this release....it's VERY different for LCI but I think these images suit a multitude of occasions...Birthdays, Mother's Day, Get Well, Thinking of You, Just A Note and will appeal to all ages.

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Must Use Flowers
Simon Says Stamp  - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
Charisma Card Challenge - Things With Wings (ladybugs)
Allsorts - Free and Easy
For the Love of Crafting - Blooming Gorgeousness
Crafts and Me Challenge - Use a New Image
Stampalot Challenge - In The Garden

The images will be on sale from today. Each image is £1.75 or you can purchase THE WHOLE SHEBANG FOR £13...that's a saving of £2.75!!

Next on the hop is the fabulicious Diane. I for one CANNOT wait to see what she has done as I love how she decorates all FOUR sides of her cards.

Please let us know what you think of the release...we ALWAYS love to hear your thoughts.

I'm off for a nap lol...Happy Hopping!

Catch ya later x

Gorgeous image and a lovely card for your mum.
Noticed Kerry you used to live in Vancouver, I have been there to visit relations and I loved it, especially going by boat Yaught to Victoria. I also saw you now live in glasgow and my friend and I go shopping there every November (for Christmas shopping) it's our favorite place to shop.
