Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 47 - Winter Blues and a GDT call!


This week at LCI the challenge has been set by Laurie and she has asked us to share our Winter Blues... well seeing as I'm one of those people that would quite happily be snuggled under a duvet from now until April that could take some time... so I'd best just get on and share the card I made :-)  Actually, I think that is where Laurie is as I think she is poorly at the moment - get well soon hunny!

I used this months Stamp Of the Month, Nikki and Buttercup building a Snowman which you can get for the bargain price of £3.50 until the end of the month.  I think it is really cute, and isn't just for Christmas either, as it looks fabby for any wintery occasion!
As another early Christmas pressie to everyone that has played along with us over the past year we are looking for some Guest Designers this challenge - interested?  Then add GD after your name in your entry!!

I used some American Traditional Designs papers from a couple of years ago with some MME Portobello Road, I think it looks OK, and tones in quite well

One thing I love about this image is that it's really quick for those last minute Christmas makes, not too much colouring, loadsa glitter!!

The lace is also from LCI and you can get it here - or check out the new thingy below (fingers crossed it works!)

Please may I enter these challenges
Thanks for looking

Very wintery, liking the shades of blue - a great cold feel. Saw your project on Make it Monday and had to come over and take a closer look.
