TLT - Anything Goes and a break


Hello Ladybug lovers...are you all ready for Christmas? I'm not...no surprise there lol. I finally put up my Christmas trees on Sunday...took 6 hours! I've got a 6 ft tree in my tv room and a 10 ft tree in my hall...why I felt the need to have a 10 ft tree baffles me. Do you know how many branches I had to fluff up??? Made me think that maybe having a real tree isn't such a bad idea as long as I have a vacuum to suck up the needles. I really believe there's a need for an umbrella Christmas tree..you know...that goes up just like an umbrella, lights and decorations included lol. I kid you not...watch this space ;-)

Apologies if your entry from our Sparklicious challenge hasn't yet received a comment from a Ladybug. We are trying our best at this busy time of year. As always the quality of entries is second to none...you are all fabuliciously talented :-D

Our last challenge for the year is perfect...ANYTHING GOES!!! It's also going to be our last challenge until February. The Ladybugs have worked so hard over the year to bring you fabulicous inspiration and I think they deserve a little rest to recharge their creative batteries. We will still be crafting but at our own leisure and without the pressure of deadlines so please keep visiting and leaving your lovely comments. I have lots of fabulicious ideas I hope to bring you in 2013 so I'll be busy busy busy!

This is my card for our Anything Goes Challenge...


I've used Christmas Robin Delight digi and colored it with my Copics adding glitter for lots of sparkle though you can't really tell from the picture.




I haven't forgotten about my birthday present for one of you...tree trimming took over on Sunday but I will get a winner posted this week :-D

Thanks so much for popping by. I hope the rest of this week isn't too stressful for you :-S

Catch ya later x

We must have the same camera lol, but Ican see some of the sparkle, Fabulous card, my favorite image and a great layout.
Trimming the tree, what a chore, I have a 7' tree and I love it, but this year I have bought a 4'tree with LED and I have forgotten the other type of lights already on. It is getting too heavy to get down from the loft and takes too long to decorate and I used 4 sets of lights which take too long to untangle. The orniments are my tree for the past years have all been items that I have bought from all the places I have visited while on holiday as a memory of the holiday instead of buying dross items, something that will sit perfect on a Christmas tree.

As for your idea of an umberella tree, when looking for my smaller tree this year there is a tree that has lights and baubles already on and you just pull it up from the centre and voyla, it's done, but Hubby didn't like them, not sure if I did either.
Looking forward to the new releases.
