Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 41 - Going Round and Round...


This weeks LCI challenge has been set by Michele, aka Mary Poppins and she has challenged us to use pink and chocolate and a circle somewhere... sheesh, talk about being specific :-D  Only joking Michele, love you really!!

I did have a complete nightmare making my card though, as I thought easy, I'll use the cricut to cut some circles out... ah, no... my 4 year old has in the last week (unseen by me) decided that my cutting mat is brilliant for sticking to the carpet, because, he tells me, it makes a great noise when you pull it off again.  Little monster!  As you can imagine it wasn't going to grip anything ever again!!  Ah well, lesson learnt by me - it shall in future be placed well out of reach of little fingers!!  All I'm going to say is thank goodness I managed to find my compass cutter, and I still have all my fingers!  What a result!!

Somehow though I managed to make two cards, one a bit busy, and one more simple  OK first up, the busy one with Snow Covered Log Ruby, Bo Bunny and MME papers, and Pink Satin Pleated Ribbon

And then I made another one, this time using this months stamp of the month Nikki Running with Buttercup, available until the end of the month half price!!  More of the MME papers and Oak Brown Felt

Both cards are so different, one's fussy, one's more CAS but both add to my pile of Christmas cards, so I'm happy!

Please can I enter these challenges

LOL boys will be boys! But you can get a low tac spray to use on those mats so it's not for the bin Sue!! Both cards are gorgeous...I love the pink pp with the spots and the felt with the border punch flabby. Your colouring is fantastic too :-D xx

Amanda R said...

Sue I don't know which one I like better, they are both fantastic! And I enjoyed the story about your little boy, especially cause it wasn't my mat he destroyed!

Oh they are gorgeous Sue, love the glittered spotty papers!! Clean your cutting mat with a few baby wipes, allow to air dry before putting the cover back on and they should work again. The low tac spray is fine as long as you don't spray near the edges as it can clog your cogs (learnt that the hard way lol)

I love the pink and brown snowflake! I bet the cutting mat does make a neat sound when you pull it off the carpet. Thanks for making me laugh!
