Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge #53 - Loves Me, Loves Me Not


Sorry I am a bit late posting this week’s card for Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge, as you may know my PC has gone wrong and I am relying on HB’s laptop, which is OK except for when he forgets to bring the charger with him and hands it over with only 20 minutes battery remaining and it goes flat halfway through me trying to post my card and upload my pictures!! Ahhhh!!!!  No problem I thought, I'll use my phone, but no, blogger and apple appear to have fallen out cos I could post nothing, and then I tried at work during my lunchbreak but couldn't get on there either (darn firewalls!!)

Anyway, I'm here at last!! The challenge this week has been set by Julie and she has set the theme of

Love Me, Love Me Not

I just had to use Magnum, one of the Add On’s that go with him and one of theMagnum sentiments - LOVE this one, just purrfect for this image :-) The papers are by Echo Park, and are quite busy, but Magnum’s a big cat, so I think he can take it :-D

Isn't he a cutie and he is so usable with the add ons for all sorts of occasions

I added a touch of glossy accents to his nose, eyes and the heart in the box, just for a bit of sheen.  I just love colouring him as a Tabby by swishing in from the outer edge with a darker pen
