LCI final challenge week 3

I have chosen this image for my next card  for the final challenge at LCI as it was the mid-way image for the first challenge I took part in as a DT member using the Skinny Malinky's  Suzy  available here for £1.75

I hope the flower does not over shadow the image but I think not.
Oh to be so skinny that you can have coffee and cake whenever  you go out shoppping
Bazils flowers
SU papers and ribbon
Copics and Promarkers
Oops just realised that I haven't put a sentiment on, sometimes I wonder what planet I am on!

Just to say that if any of you out there have ordered any of the rubber stamps that on sale for a £1.00 and have not yet received your order, sadly Kerry's Mum passed away suddenly last Saturday and Kerry has flown home to Canada and will not be back till after the 1st of October.

Thank you all for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Final Challenge at LCI

The August challenge at LCI was going to be Summer Fun and I chose to use the lovely 'On your bike Robyn' available here for the reduced price of £1.00. but not for long.
A great image for a little girl who has got a new bike for her Birthday or who loves to ride her bike.
MME papers matched perfectly.
Computer generated sentiment.

Thank you for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Ladybug Craft and Ink - Final Challenge

Today see's the start of the final challenge at LCI, all very sad but Head Ladybug, Kerry, has Family commitments and is struggling with her time and Family comes first, especially when it is the cutest Grandson.

 We are all using our favorite LCI image.

My image is Eunice in wellies, love this image, used liquid pearls on her.
Picket Fence - Die-namics
Groovy flower, Fresh cut grass, Star flowers, Small olive branch, all Memory Box dies.
Fishtail banners put through twice to cut each end
Computer generated sentiment
Bakers twine
Cloud embossing folder - Embossalicious

Ok, they are all very similar but some of the photo's are better than others and while you are making one, you may as well make three of the same, loads and loads of snippets used on these cards.
The teacher's loved them..

BUT, there is more..We have invited retired Ladybugs and GD's to join the Grand Finale choosing their favourite LCI image whether it's a cling stamp or digi. 

Of course with every closing down comes a SALE and boy have we got a sale for you! ALL cling stamps will be on sale from today for £1 and all ribbon, felt, buttons and nail heads are 30% off. The Swarovski crystals will NOT be in the sale. The sale starts today will run until September 30th so you've plenty of time to shop.

We hope you'll join us in our final challenge which is CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE IMAGE. We would love it if it was an LCI image but it doesn't have to be.

There will be 2 prizes....One for the challenge entry and one for the challenge entry using an LCI image, but you will all be winners when you buy the stamps at £1.00.

It was due to the past Ladybugs fabulous creations that I entered this challenge and eventually joined the DT team with other brilliant  creative Ladies, it was a major decision for me and I was totally panic stricken but the lovely Kerry was very patient with me and gave me lots of support and I have had a card published in a Magazine, along with the other Ladybugs, which would never have happened otherwise.

Due to the numerous white snippets used in these cards I am entering them into the Playgrounds Snippets Challenge no 140

Thank you all for looking and bearing with the long post and if you leave a comment then it will make my day.

Rudolph Day again.

If this is August I hate to think what December and January will be like!

Rudolph Day once again over at Sarn's Stamping for Pleasure.

I really need to have a check on my Christmas cards, I am so dis-organised this year.
Also I decided to photo the two cards together, not a great idea as the right one looks wonky, and a different colour to the left one....
Memory Box - Dazzling Snowflake
Glitter paper from craft shop in Heckmondwike - 3 sheets A4 for £1.75, not too sure how they work that one out?
Peel off sentiments coloured with peel off markers, the match is amaizing.
Craft UK 5 x 5 scalloped 300 gsm card.
Lifestyle rounded corner die
Also a good pokey tool is needed

Now I love this die BUT it is not really what I thought it was, the snowflake doesn't cut out so that you have a snowflake to stick onto your your card but it cuts out of the card so it has to be backed with something, I think it is fab though.

I have  made 120 of these cards and while it looks CAS and pretty plain it was a bit of a b... ache doing so many, I am now suffering from Cuttlebug/Grand Calibur shoulder!
The card on the left was the last card I made and it was backed by five, yes five bits of snippets of the glitter paper so I am entering that card into the Snippets Playground

Thanks for popping by and hopefully you are kind enough to leave a comment.

Gold at ATCAS

Memory Box - Tall Taper Candle
Gold card stock which was probably from Craftwork Cards a long time ago
Computer generated sentiment, in hindsight I should have made the gold a tad deeper and maybe a little larger for the sentiment but I was just playing with the new die and then realised that it would fit the challenge at ATCAS.http://addictedtocas.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/atcas-44-gold.html

As I have very little of the gold card left and I did cut the candle from a small piece of left over card I am also stepping gently into the Snippets Playground.
Edited to say I don't believe it the card Di has used for her snippet card today uses the same die
Thank you so much for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Rudolph Day - July

This is hopefully a scheduled post and one which I hope the lovely Sarn remembers to link to her fabulous 
Rudolph Day Challenge. I for one am going to miss this challenge.
Two cards using my new Memory Box die, Christmas ribbon ornaments or baubles to us in the UK.
Now doesn't it look an easy card, well when I saw this die I thought glitter paper, well the glitter paper I have, which is fabulous but when cut with a die stretches, so that didn't work, cutting the insides with glitter paper was too much and didn't look right, so back to plain card stock for the outside and Christmas papers for the inside
Felt the cards did need a bit of glitter, well Christmas is all about glitter so cut the Ornament tops from glitter paper, may not look much but makes me feel better
Today I am at sea (nothing new there then, yesterday I was in Livorno and tomorrow I will be in Naples
Sorry that I will be unable to comment on your entries but any comments you care to leave are very much appreciated.
