Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge - Folds and/or Autumn Colours


Hope you are all well and are having a great week, I've been a bad blogger and have been neglecting my blog for the last couple of days - life has been getting in the way of crafting, some good stuff and some not so great but hopefully I can get creating and posting more regularly again this week!

Before I get started on this weeks LCI DT card, wow!!  How popular was last weeks new release, for the first time ever LCI has gone digi with some cracking new images - if you haven't seen them yet, check them out here - they certainly seemed to go down well and a huge thanks to everyone who played along with both the challenge and the blog hop, and a very hearty congratulations to the winners and top three!!

Back to normal this week though and it's Amanda's turn to pick the challenge and she would like to see your folded cards and/or autumn colours - you can do one, or the other, or both!

For some reason giving me two things to do stumped me this week though, but I got there in the end, making a tag card thingy.  Why on earth I didn't take the more obvious route and make an easel card I have no idea!!  I did glue my folds shut, so hope that is ok... hmmmm, with hindsight I wish I'd left them open, was having a bit of a dim moment I guess!!

I was also struggling big time for papers.  I'm not going to admit this to my HB because he wouldn't believe that was possible considering the space my papers take up, but I settled on a DCWV pad - I think it is one of the middle east collections, as I thought the colours of these pages were fairly autumnal :-D

I love the Shoes 'n' Bags stamps - this one is called the ruffle and I coloured it in autumnal colours and added a small hint of sparkle to the shoes and some glossy accents to the metal bits.

The sentiment stamp is from the Sentimental Numbers set - this is one set that is always on my desk and I reach for over and over as the sizing is PERFECT!!

Hope you like it, and are able to enter the challenge this week

Why do an easel card Sue when you came up with something a bit different??!! This is fantastic...I always forget about this type of card so it's great to be reminded of it. Your colouring is fantastic and that flower gorgeous. xx

Super card Sue, the bags and shoes stamps are lush, I could do with some shoes like that - not that I could walk in them!
Love your papers
