TLT - Laurie's Challenge Pink + 1

Goooooooooood morning!!! How are you all? Surviving the snow? I know I shouldn't complain but I am...we've hardly had any snow at all :-( We've had a few pathetic attempts but not enough to build a snowman, throw snowballs at Ruby and Rocky or make Snow Angels hmph!

We had a fantastic lot of entries for our Killer Heels Girly challenge, thank you. You'll find all the winners on the Challenge Blog. Are you one of them? If you are let me know and we'll organize your prize :-D

Today's Pink + 1 challenge comes courtesy of our super duper organized Ladybug, Laurie! She chose the challenge of pink but we have one Ladybug that has an allergy to all shades of pink and somehow +1 was added lol. That just means you can add another color. Of course skin tones don't count so you're free to add another :-D

I've a sneaky peak of what's to come in the not too distant future. A few of the Ladybugs are introducing a new character today called Billie Bear. Another few are using Tic Tac Love which I showed you last year but both are released today. Then there are the rebels that used neither lol. 

Here is my card using Valentine Billie (named after my grandma....speaking of grandma..did I mention I'm going to be one in May??? lol) illustrated by Jan White.....

This is Valentine Billie...cute? I think so lol. I just love this little gal...and wait till you see what else we have in this collection ;-D

I made one BIG mistake...the ribbon. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE the ribbon but wish I had left it out. Speaking of ribbon, this is a new addition. It comes in pink, turquoise, apple green and red. The picture here and the website don't do the colors HAVE to see them to love them :-D

Look at that sparkle {sigh} 

What a cutie! 

I printed the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with one of my Fishtail dies from MFT

Kerry Valentine Billy is just beautiful. So good for more than just Valentines.
It would be heartbreaking to have him only come out to play for one month a year.

Gemma said...

This rebel has a good cause lol!
I love how you have coloured little Billie up Kerry and your design and layout are both perfect!
I also love the baby shoes in your post below - it took me back to my own kids first shoes, they were just the same (apart from the vast difference in size!)
I can't believe you're gonna be a granny and didn't tell us!

Hiya Kerry Valentine Billie is gorgeous as is your super duper card. I would love to give her a home as you know me I am at heart rather a cutsie girl when it comes to my cards and this is a real cutsie image ;0) I also love those heart balloons, this stamp works well for lots of occasions. We had more sleet at the weekend and I really could do with spring now I am so fed up with this dismal weather..grr! Keep snug, hugs xx
