Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 37 - New Release and a Blog Hop!!

Please scroll down for my Try It On Tuesday GD post, or click here!!

Is it just me, or are most of the images available quite young?  Or those that are more suitable for those not in their first flush of youth a bit, well, frumpy?!  Well, this is no longer the case because the fabulous Kerry, aka Queen Ladybug has just released a brand new range of stamps - called the Wrinkley's - and each image comes with three semtiments , available from today from Ladybug Crafts Ink and they are perfect for those who refuse to grow old gracefully :-D

and, to celebrate the DT are having a little blog hop... hurrah!!!  As we know no-one will have the new images the challenge is 

You should have arrived from the lovely Pinky, if not and you want to play along head on back to the start which is Kerry - if you get lost the full list is available on the challenge blog here

The blog hop prizes are:
The First Prize is the full set of all 6 stamps, and if that wasn't generous enough 3 runners up will receive one stamp of their choice from the new release.
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 for £5.99 ( Normal RRP £6.99)  till next Tuesday

There are 6 new stamps in the release and I was given the You Know Too Much Wrinkley

 I love these new MME paper packs, they continue to break my no new papers rule!

We all have friends like these who are around through thick and thin, but I'm sure at one stage those ice creams would have been Margaritas :-)  LOL

I used the left over bits of paper to decorate the inside, and used one of the fabby sentiments from the set.

So what do you think, brilliant images huh!?

I'm sure you know the rules already, but just a recap, honestly it's such a responsibility being the last on the hop, if it all goes wrong at this stage I'll feel SO responsible!!

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, below, either in a post or on your side bar.

your final stop is back to the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog, where you can add your comment as to which of the new release is your favourite :-D

Please can I enter my card into these challenges
