Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 39 - No Designer Paper

Hello!!  I'm so sorry I'm late posting, I'd done a scheduled post and it didn't go.... grrrr!!!

Anyway, better late than never :-D
This week's LCI challenge has been set my my lovely friend Julie and she would like to see 
No Papers
LOL, when I saw her on Saturday I think she was slightly regretting her decision but I think all the DT have made some gorgeous cards, even if it took some of us well outside our comfort zone!  In addition all the DT have used the same image... I LOVE it when we do this, as it really shows how each of us interpret the stamps in different ways, colours and techniques!
I decided to use my Marianne Embossing folder/die again as it seems to work so well for Christmas cards, and was delighted to find Nikki Running with Buttercup fitted the space perfectly!! 

Great image huh?  

She's so fun to colour and I really went to town with the glitter... AND... Nikki Running with Buttercup is this months LCI Stamp of the month, which means you can get your very own here ...and as she's the stamp of the month then she is half price... and lets face it £3.25 doesn't even buy you a coffee and a slice of cake these days so it's the bargain of the, well... month!!

I also used some of the gorgeous green twill ribbon and white felt also available from LCI.

Hopefully I have got myself on track and I'll be blogging a bit more frequently this week!  I just think I lost my way for a bit, but hopefully all will settle down soon :-D

In the meantime please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by

Sue xx
