New Release & Blog Hop

New releases are like buses wait for ages for one then a load come along at once lol. Yes we've got another release at LCI and I think you're really going to like it...well I hope you do! It's called Through The Ages and there are 20 images in this collection. I KNOW...can you believe it??!! 

We have two Guest Designers today, Rose and Lyndsey. They are both incredibly talented and I hope you give them a real Ladybug welcome. Rose will be staying on to cover for Michele who is recovering from shoulder surgery and I'm hoping she'll love us so much she won't want to leave ;-D

As per usual we have a few rules for the hop so let's get them over with:

1. Leave a comment on each of the DT posts as you hop. 

2. Leave a comment on the Challenge blog letting us know which image you like best

 3. Display our badge in your side bar to spread the word. 

4. Have fun!

Like I said, there are 20 images on sale from today at £1.75 each. The winner of the challenge will get to choose 6 images and 5 runners up will receive 3 images of their choice.

Going with the theme of the  images the Challenge is 
ADD A NUMBER! We'd like to see a number somewhere on your project.

You should have arrived here from our lovely Tams

Here's my card...I hope you like it...

Oh to be 18 again lol! When I thought of this collection I wanted something a bit different so incorporated the number within the images. I really love how they turned out and think Jan has done an amazing job with the illustrations. 

The cupcake frosting is my favourite Fluffy stuff dusted with glitter before fluffing. I added Glossy Accents to the 8 and flame and sprinkled with glitter then added GA on it's own to the candle so it looked like wax. A Swarovski crystal finishes the flower off nicely

I found this Stampin' Up! Ribbon in the depths of a drawer and it matched perfectly with my Summer Breeze paper pad

This button was a last minute it!

So there you have it...the end of the hop. I hope you have enjoyed the wonderful makes from the DT and GD and that they have inspired you to rush to your craft space and create.

Well Queen Ladybug you have excelled yourself with this new release. They are just perfect for "age" cards. When I first read the through the ages banner I thought of stone age, iron age etc..lololol! Your DT have come up trumps for you, I just need to nip back at some point to see Rose as her card is not up yet. Your card, as always is just fabulicious! Off to leave my comment on the challenge blog now. Well done to everyone xxxxxx

Kathleen said...

Fantastic card Kerry, love the layout and the fabulous ribbons and papers, it is a great image but wish it didn't have the flower on, then it would be a superb multi sex image and they are very rare but pleased to see that quite a lot of the new images are.
