Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ New Release Blog Hop!! ~ Merry Christmas!


Hello everyone -HO HO HO - Its only June i know, but it's another big day at the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge blog!  Kerry has a new release of Christmas stamps and we are having a Blog Hop to celebrate!! 


Firstly the Hop.. all the DT have not only had to use the challenge theme, but they have also each used one of the new images. There are 4 in all and you'll agree when you see their creations the new images are just fabulous! (None of the DT have seen each other's cards either so we can't wait to hop either!)

So onto the rules of the Hop - which are...

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 stating which is your most favourite of the new images 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 the full set of all 4 stamps

 and then 5 runners up will receive one stamp of their choice from the new release.

So after reading all those horrible rules which I am sure most of you will just skim through ... 

You should have arrived here from 


If you haven't then hop back over to the challenge blog and start from the beginning! 

Now onto my card. I have used this Fab little Robin stamp called O Christmas Tree. I coloured her in with Copics, adding some glitter to baubles and snowman on her Jumper. I had big plans to use lots of diecut borders and nesties, but I currently have no die cutting machine and it could be a while before I have it back/give in and buy a new one! So I kept the layout fairly clean and simple twisting the layers slightly! 


So thats my first christmas card of the year, loads more to make so I best get cracking!! 

Before I do ... your next stop along the hop is 


And last but not least ... 

You have 2 ways to win a prize .. you can just play along with the hop or enter the challenge .. and for the brave you can do both! 

And if you don't win.. you can still enjoy the stamps at a discount price as the stamps will be on sale from today in the shop for £5.50 ( Normal RRP £6.50)  till 5th July

Great card and I love the way you have offset it as she looks a little wobbly when she is decorating the tree (we have all been there!)
