Bloomin' Fabulous - New Release!!!

Howdy howdy HOWDY!!!! The Ladybugs are beyond excited to finally bring you our newest release...Bloomin' Fabulous. More flowers??? Yup more flowers lol. The way I look at it is you can NEVER have enough flower images :-D

Before I show you my card make sure you check the Challenge Blog to see if you are one of the winners from our For Him/Father's Day challenge...the entries were fabulous!!

On to the new release. There are 12 images...LOTS of flowers and they are on sale from today. There is a prize of ALL the images for one lucky winner and 5 prizes of 2 images of your choice. All you have to do is leave a comment on the Challenge Blog telling us what your favourite flower is. Mine are Tulips closely followed by Gerberas :-D

I've got TWO cards to show you... I am bursting to show you the first one. It's the first time I've made one like this and have since made a 2nd! As it's my first please go easy on me lol

It's a card in a box!!! I've seen them all over Pinterest and blogland and thought I'd give them a go. They looked pretty complicated but I found a fantastic tutorial on YouTube here ... and all I'm tellin' ya is if I can do it anyone can lol. The video is just over 6 minutes and so easy to follow :-D

I'm really pleased with how my card turned out...the only thing I would do different is make the image larger. I've used Fishbowl o' Roses...this is a brilliant image to colour. 

I added glitter to the roses and Glossy Accents to the water.

I found some thin cork in a drawer and used it for one of the flowers behind the birthday sign as well as burlap for one of the hearts. I added Doodlebug Sprinkles enamel dots for added interest.

Another burlap flower with a cork and button center. All the pp pieces have been scored to give a nicer finish.

I would encourage anyone who hasn't made a Card in a Box to give it a go...they are so much fun to make and ideas are endless.

For my second card I've used the gorgeous Camelia Blooms...I love it's simplicity.

This is from a set of 4 note cards I made. All the cards were the same except I used different Bloomin' Fabulous images for each one. Lucky for you I only have one picture of it ;-D I used an A4 Embossalicious folder to emboss the whole card blank...I really love doing this...then printed the image and sentiment as seen and scored a line around the card with my Scorpal. I think this really makes a difference to the finished card.

So there you have it! I hope you like the images and the cards I've made. Please let the Ladybugs know what you think...and give our GD Jane some extra Ladybug love.

I had a busy week last week with Coen...4 days and 2 nights...I was in bed for 10 on Saturday night lol. We had a great time though. On Friday we went to Calderglen Park where I used to take Nic and the boys. They have a little zoo area and Coen loved it. 

Here are a few pictures for Coen's Corner..

It's changed a lot since I was last there...I'm sure they didn't have meerkats back then...they were hilarious to watch...not far off the commercials... simples lol

The weather has been lovely...warm and sunny so hubby Coen and I took a drive to the beach at Troon on was FREEZING but it didn't stop us having some icecream. Coen helped grandpa to finish his cone. 

That's it from me...have a fantastic Tuesday and I hope you'll join in our Anything Goes challenge this week and make sure you leave a comment for a chance to win the new release!

Catch ya later x

Fabulous cards, Kerry! Your box card looks amazing and the clean precise simplicity of your note cards is so elegant.
I love the look on Coen's little face as he studies his ice-cream!!
I really don't think he wants to share it, not with MP or anyone else!
