Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 16 - Recipe Challenge, New Stamps and a Blog Hop!!

Good morning!! 

Today at Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge we are celebrating the release of a new range of stamps (which you can pre-order for a very special price here) with a blog hop,  and I am hoping that you have arrived from the lovely Pam's blog, if not and you want to join in and have the chance to win these lovely images head on back to the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge blog where the hop starts

This week our GDT for February, Domi, has challenged us to use the following recipe

3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 image

Now I'm going to have to confess that I was merrily making my card and was following the recipe happily then got distracted and when I came back to it started adding flowers and very naughtily added another 3... I only realised what I had done when I came to write up this post.  I'm so sorry Domi!! 

Please don't follow my extremely bad example, but here's my boo-boo card!


I've used Cheerleader Amber, she' such a sweetie :-)


OK, so there you go... I'm hanging my head in shame!!  Please don't sack me Kerry!!  I've used some gorgeous cream and red flocked paper by Making Memories and punched a border from a co-ordinating red paper and matted them onto Kraft CS.  I've used some gorgeous ribbon by Berrisfords (love this stuff, it's so soft and lucious!!) and have added my naughty naughty flowers which are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and Papermania.
Now the important stuff!  One lucky hopper will win all of the stamps in the new relase and four hoppers will win one stamp each :-)

How do you win?

Well firstly you need to grab the blog hop banner and display it proudly on your blog (if you have one)


Next visit each of the DTs blogs, leaving a lovely little comment on each one, and make a note of the number included in their post, then add them together (fingers and/or calculators are allowed!)

and email your total to lcichallengeblog@aol.com 

OK, so the number you need from me is.....

9

Honestly, it's a good job I'm not allowed to enter, what with my inability to count this week!
Your next stop on the blog hop is the super talented Anita.

I'm on the lookout for an "I'm a total idiot who can't follow basic instructions challenge", if you stumble across one in blogland please let me know!  In the meantime I'd like to enter these challenges please


Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow
