TLT - New Release & A Blog Hop - Anything Goes

Boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!!! Are you ready to have some fun? The Ladybugs have been super busy getting ready for today's hop and I KNOW you're gonna love the inspiration they have for you. But before I tell you all about it thank you to everyone who entered last weeks Challenge. You'll find the winners at the bottom of the post on the Challenge Blog

Ok, here we go!

The new DIGI release is called Love & Marriage...there are 6 megamazing images to choose from. They'll be on sale immediately for £1.75 each or £9 for the WHOLE SHEBANG...a total bargain!!!

The rules are as follows:

1) We'd like you to display the above badge somewhere on your blog
2) Leave a comment on each blog along the hop telling us what you think
3) Leave a comment on the Challenge Blog telling us which is your favourite image and why
4) Not really a rule but you don't HAVE to do the blog hop to enter the main challenge of Love & Marriage.

The prizes are as follows:

The overall winner of the hop will receive THE WHOLE SHEBANG (6 digi's) and 5 runners up will receive 1 DIGI image of their choice :-D

There's also the normal Challenge prize so that's three (3) chances to win a prize 

But that's not all!!! Because it's LCI's Challenge Blog's First Blogaversary some of the Ladybugs have offered candy.  One lucky commenter from that Ladybugs blog will win that candy!!! This is the candy I'm offering...

Scor-Buddy, CD tin, Calendar, Notepad and pen (I'll be posting something tomorrow that you can make with these) and if you're good I might just add a little surprise lol.

You should have arrived from the newest and mega talented Ladybug Laurie and if you haven't head back to the start at Challenge Blog

I've used two images....the first is 'Just Married'....

I made this card for a friend's son who got married in the summer...I was extremely late with their card lol. You should know by now I love wedding and baby cards to be WOW...this one is no different.

I printed the image onto PTI cs and coloured it in with my Copics adding glitter to the bouquet, her dress and the shoe trailing at the back of the car. I also added Glossy Accents to the windscreen and tail lights.

I love this image and how the card turned out :-D

This is the second card I made. Since we've got weddings on the brain in our house I thought I'd make an invitation. I haven't really thought much about the invites for Nic and Ben but this might just be a contender. See what you think....

 I saw a great tutorial for a criss cross card by Monica Gale on YouTube here. After making the main card I embossed some white cs with one of my all time favourite Cuttlebug embossing folders and stitched it to the front. One side is embossed and the other debossed.

I made the flower with white felt and used a brad to keep the 3 flowers together finally sticking it to the front of the invitation with Glossy Accents.

If you're wondering where the image is....ta da! I didn't want to add any colour but I've added a touch of glitter to the flowers on the cake.

So there you have it...I hope you like the new release. From here hop on over to the ever so talented Julie...I got a sneak peek the other day and it's fabulicious!!

Unfortunately Lisa is not involved with the hop but she has generously gathered some candy to give away so please make sure you stop by her blog and leave a  comment.

And finally it's with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that three of the Ladybugs are stepping down from the DT and hanging up their wings. I would like to thank Hayley, Mary J and Amanda for their amazing work, support and friendship over the last year and I wish them nothing but great things for the future.
