TLT - New Billie Bear Release - Anything Goes

I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are. It is absolutely baltic here in Scotland though we are lucky and have power. There are thousands up north and in Northern Ireland that haven't had any since Friday!!!! I am really bored with this weather and it's just not right at this time of year. This time last year I was outside ironing wearing shorts!

Enough of my moaning and onto today's news and challenge. We had a huge amount of fabulicious entries for our Spring Challenge...they certainly cheered me up :-D Make sure you skip on over to the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winners.

As the title and banner say we have a new release today!!! I think I am more excited than a kid at Christmas...have been for the last week with the DT and GD emailing me their cards. As usual for a new release, I'm the only one that gets to see the images so they get a surprise :-D We have 4 Guest Designers for our release...Jane, Gaynor, Alison and Lucy. Please give them plenty of Ladybug love when you visit :-D

There are 16 images in total including the already released Valentine Billie and they are available to purchase from today at £1.75 each. 

Are you ready??? I can't hear you lol!! Ok...enough teasing, here is my card...

 I've used Tea Party Billie and she has a friend, Ellie (very original snort!). I just LOVE this image and had great fun coloring it with my Copics. I found these papers...think they're Dove Craft but don't quote me on memory is horrendous these days. The heart banner die is by La La Land which was sold out in the UK but I managed to track a couple from Frantic Stamper in the US and the burlap heart is cut from a DieNamics die

I THINK I made this sentiment up but I'm sure there's something similar out there.

I've used 3mm pink nailheads in between each flag and even manipulated them to look like they were flapping in the wind. QOB will be proud lol.

This has been one of my favourite releases and I hope you like it too. There is no blog hop or competition but if you leave a comment on my blog telling me why you like Billie I'll randomly choose someone to win 6 of the new images!

Have a fabulicious Tuesday!

Catch ya later x

EDIT:  OOPS...I realized last night when I was uploading the DT cards to the Challenge Blog that I had given the same image to 2 Ladybugs and I couldn't not show you the complete Billie collection today. Luckily I had made a card using Birthday Billie for Steven's birthday back in February so as an added Kerry bonus here's a second card for you ...

I know Steven was 22 on his birthday but I couldn't resist making his card using Birthday Billie lol. His birthday was after he arrived in Dubai so I didn't see his expression when he opened it but he did assure me that he loved it...awwwww!


I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Creations Challenges - The Letter B (button, bear, bunting) (top card)
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Happy Birthday (2nd card)
Squigglefly - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Fur or Feathers
Creative Card Crew - Masculine
Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything Goes

Well that's definitely it from me for today. I'm hosting a Pampered Chef Party Hour show in my house this morning so it's going to be a long day but I'm looking forward to looking at the rest of the DT/GD makes again later on.

Catch ya later (again lol) x

OH MY GOSH - you're going to be a grandma very, very, very soon - seeing that ticker reminds me how close it is!!! :D

OK, that heart banner? I need it - NOW; where can I buy it? I'm serious!!! Love it - and two of you have used it!!

Well, my card is pretty lame compared to the others; I better try a mid-week reminder and see if I can make something more worthy!:-/

Love Billie Bear and the elephant - cute; BUT I also LOVE those packages; great colors on that card.

LOVE Billie Bear!!

Jane said...

Now did you tell me you are going to be a grandma....!! Time has just flown but I bet that Nicol just wants May to arrive. This is such a cute release Kerry and I loved my image. These two cards you made are fab and Nellie is a perfect frend for Billie (note that I got this right...NOT Billy). The wine bottle one great too. If you had to pin me down and I could only choose one stamp it has to be your first card with Nellie (but I love the knitting one too..LOL) I am so fed up with this's just so bitterly cold..grr. Hope the party is a rip roaring success as will be this new
release. Thanks for the GD invite too xxxxx

Jane said...

ROFL.....I see it's Ellie not least as a GD you can't sack me..........;0) xxxx Names are never my strong point...ask my patients!

Mary J said...

Fabulouso, Kerrie! Totally love this new release and your two cards are just adorable!

Cheryl W. said...

I just love that little Billy - he adds a special softness and a lot of "warm fuzzy" to your cards.

Susan said...
