Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 40 - Tag, you're it!!


Before I get onto today's post a quick apology!! It appears I managed to break my blog and it was only showing posts from several weeks ago!!  I tried blogger help, which wasn't that helpful :-/, but found a post from someone saying it has been happening when you copy and paste a picture, rather than uploading it properly!  Humf, that's me told then... so I had to go back and find the rogue picture and get rid of it, and after 3 days I seem to have cracked it... fingers crossed!!

Soooo.......... this weeks LCI challenge is Pinky's challenge, and she has chosen to ask us to 

You can either make a tag or incorporate a tag into your card, you know us Ladybugs, we aren't that picky!!  

I decided to use my Marianne Die to make a tag onto which I have used Posh Shopper Nikki, and I used more of my lovely Paris and Co MME pad.  I might have to treat myself to another one as it is getting used up at an alarming rate!!

Isn't she gorgeous :-D  I had to give her a glittery bag though, just seemed the right thing to do :-D

The sentiment that is just peaking round the corner, which I printed on the computer as this card is destined for a friend who seems to do nothing but shop :-D

I also put to good use some of the luscious felt that you can also get from the LCI store - I used Monty Mushroom (!!) to make the panel on the left hand side, which has some sheer ruffle ribbon tied round it.

Monty makes a second appearance with Oak Brown felt and some brown polka dot bias binding which have all been cut with a Marianne flower die

Cute huh?!

Hope you have time to play along with the challenge this week, and don't forget this month's stamp of the month, Nikki Running with Buttercup half price... now if that doesn't tempt you I don't know what will!!
