Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ New Release Blog Hop!!



You should have arrived here from Mary J's Blog ... If you get lost along the way please hop back to the challenge blog to find your way! 

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! This week we have a fabulous blog hop to celebrate the fabulous new release!!! 

None of us ladybugs have seen each others cards, or even know who has what image, all I can tell you is that these new images are 
F A B U L O U S!! 

Now for the boring bit, before I show you any piccies! 


a) Visit each of the DT members in order and leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts.

b)  leave a comment on the challenge blog once you have finished the hop.

c) Display the blog hop banner which is at the top of this post on your blog, either in a post or on your side bar.
The First Prize is all 4 images in the new release
and we have 4 Runner up prizes of one new image each.  Winners will be chosen at random!

The challenge this week is FASHION! yes thats right we want to see your fashionable cards!!

So onto my card, I am sure Kerry hates me, I begged and pleaded for a non girly image, yet she sent me this beautiful stamp of girlyness!! Those who know me will know I am a Tom boy through and through!! I will not tell you how many times I restarted this card because I wasn't happy with how it looked, a severe lack of mojo soon cane flooding back and I finally was happy with one I made! I used papers from MME,  for the base card, and decided that if I could have any bag in the world then it would be funky and bright, so I paper pieced the bag!! I used new nestie lattice rectangles to make a shaped easel card and added some flowers to finish it off. The sentiment is one of 3 which come with the image! 


So enough of me babbling on, I hope you like my card, and will join in with the blog hop!! The next stop on your way is


And remember for a limited time you can get your hands on this beautiful new release at an equally fabulous special order price from Ladybug Crafts Ink
