TLT - Laurie's Challenge - Double Trouble!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! If I'm sounding a bit cheery it's cuz I am. A few reasons 1) I feel like I'm almost back to my old self :-D 2) I made it into my craft room for the first time in weeks at the weekend AND I made 3 cards woot woot 3) My 'puter ain't broke AND I managed to get my new toy working and I LOVE it!!!! 4) I've got something up my sleeve I DESPERATE to tell you ;-D 4) Ryan and his girlfriend arrived home this morning from their 2 week holiday in Mexico though it feels like months since I've seen him.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter Tam's Big Birthday Challenge. Although I didn't get to comment I did have a quick look and you're all amazing! It was also great to see a few more entries using LCI images. Remember you have 2 chances to win a £10 voucher to spend in the the over all challenge OR win using an LCI image! Maybe you've won one of those vouchers so head on over to the Challenge Blog and check. If it is you, email me at to claim your prize :-D

So we're onto our fabulicious Ladybug Laurie's challenge...Double Trouble! To ease myself in gently I went for the obvious Double Trouble...twins!!! A great friend of my DLS had identical twin boys in March...3 months early!!! I'm happy to say they are home and thriving and absolutely gorgeous :-D And yes, you don't need to tell me...I'm late lol. 

Here's my card...I'm especially happy with it because I was able to use my new toy to flip my image which for some reason couldn't figure out with Word. Let me know what you think....

I used Sleeping Baby Baby and like I said I 'flipped' him so he's facing the opposite way. This is such a fun tool to use on the computer and great when an image doesn't quite fit the space you want him to. Something that is a bit more difficult when stamping. I especially love their little bums in the air lol.

I used some Lasting Impressions pp I've had for yonks, Baby Blue Twill Stripe ribbon and as always colored the images with my Copics. A little bit of Glamour Dust on the blanket adds a bit of sparkle :-D

I, of course was predictable with my Double Trouble choice but the rest of the Ladybugs were definitely thinking outside the box. You will LOVE what they have got for you...lots of inspiration!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
OLLCB - Baby Baby
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes With Sentiment
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Real or Faux Stitching
2 Sisters - Plaid or Stripe

Hope you have a GREAT Tuesday!

Catch ya later x
