Time to Party Lady Bug Craft Ink Style!

Welcome to the LADYBUG CRAFTS INK first ever Blog Hop!! 
Now you should have arrived here from  Sue's Blog. However if you haven't then you need to go back to Kerry's Blog

The blog hop is to celebrate the first projects made by the new Design Team (yes that me!! woohoo!) over at LADYBUG CRAFTS INK.
We have all been given the challenge of using the NIKKI MERMAID image in any way we choose. I haven’t seen the other DT cards so are just as excited as you to see what they have come up with.



So here is Mermaid Nikki, in all her Glory having been coloured, glittered and glossed within an inch of her life!! (lucky her!) 
Papers : DCWV
Image - Mermaid Nikki (click and you can adopt her too)
Flowers - Hobbycraft
Nailheads - Ladybug Crafts Ink (clicky)
Punch - EK Success Bubbles & Nellie Sneddon leaf punch
Sentiment - Craftwork cards


There are 3 prizes to be won on the blog hop - one stamp for each prize from the LADYBUG CRAFTS INK collection. (now I wonder if I can win anything! lol)

So...... what do you have to do to win?.... It’s simple.......

1. Hopefully by now you will already have the blog hop banner on your side bar to promote the hop. If not grab it now! - As that is the first requirement.


2. You must visit each of the DT blogs in order and leave a comment on each of their posts. 
3. At the end of the hop leave a comment on KERRY’s blog
4. There is a ladybird hidden somewhere on one of the DT blogs.... just email LISA at...lisa.coe@btinternet.com and tell her where you found the ladybird.

3 winners will be chosen at random from 3 of the DT blogs.

The hop starts today and finishes on midnight Sunday 19th September. The winner will be announced on KERRY’s blog on Tuesday 21st September.


Good luck and most of all have fun! 

Your next step on the hop is Kerry's blog, so hop on over and leave her a comment and that is the end!! but fear not as this may well be the first blog hop, but it certainly won't be the last!

Got lost? unsure where you have been? Then fear not as here is a list of blogs you should have been following!
