TLT - Julie's Challenge - Child or Teenager

Well hello Ladybug fans... Hope you had a FABULICIOUS Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate! I had a great time in Rome with Sadie but I'll tell you more about it later on in the week and show you the pictures.

My laptop is in for repair and I'm using my iPad which has been a bit tricky....Julie has to add the photos for I'm going to try and make this short for all our sakes lol.

I think we had a record amount of entries for our Anything Goes challenge and I know we've not commented on them all because of the Easter holidays but be assured we appreciate all your fantastic cards and projects and your effort to enter our challenge :-D make sure you check the challenge blog to see if you were a winner.

For my card I chose Football Jack. Here's a shocking admission....I can't remember the last time I used a stamp {gasp!} Isn't that terrible hmph!

I stamped coloured and cut out Football Jack and mounted him on an embossed circle. I bought the fabby tree and grass from Flourish With A Bling which is owned by Lucy Patrick (as well as Maggie and Kate), one of our GD's from our last challenge. She stocks the most gorgeous flourishes and embellishments for scrap booking and cards and although she's all the way in Australia, it only took 5 days to arrive on my doorstep... Including a weekend!!!

Isn't Jack adorable! I've added Glossy Accents to his football.

Here is a close up of the Flourish With A Bling Lee's Tree which I trimmed to fit my card.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenges - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Boys and Girls Come Out To Play

Ok... Strange things are going on so I'm going to finish up but will be back to sort this post when I get my laptop back!

Thanks for your help Julie :-D

Catch ya later x

Love the texture you've added and that tree is really fabulous. Will have to check out Lucy's webshop. I finally managed to make another card last Sunday and was so thrilled to see it picked for the top 3 at LCI!
