LCI New Release, and a Blog Hop


A very long time no see from me!  But I couldn't resist the new release at LCI and the Blog Hop that is being held to celebrate!

Fingers crossed you have arrived here from the gorgeous Tams , if not and you want to go along with the hop (why not, there's prizes to be won... more on that in a minute!!) head on back to Julie's blog to get started, and don't worry if you get lost, head back to the LCI challenge blog to find your way :-D

Right, where do I start!

OK, just a few housekeeping bits and bobs

The blog hop prize is all six images from the new release and five runners up who will each get one image each, as usual this fortnights challenge will also have a Challenge Winner, Winner using an LCI image,and Top 3... phew, what a lot of winners!!

To enter the blog hop, you must visit each of the team and leave a comment on each of their blogs, AND pop a comment on the challenge blog letting us know which of the new images is your favourite!!  Popping the Blog Hop Badge below on a post, or on your sidebar is also much appriciated!!

 Right, I think that's all the housekeeping sorted, onto my card!!  

I'm going to be TOTALLY honest here and say, I've picked bits and bobs from the inspiration photo - I was having a paper nightmare, and please be gentle with me, on account of the fact that my mojo is still seriously flagging!!  Anyway, it is what it is, and I quite like it :-D

I used Mr & Mrs Delight and I can honestly say they are a delight to colour - perfect for Christmas cards when we have to do SO many (actually I'm thinking of these two cuties in sepia and or greyscale... I'll try and have a play soon and let you know how I get on!

I used some (non-christmas) MME papers from my stash (how has it got so disorganised while I've not been using it!!) and added pins, gems twine and a new Memory Box Die cut which has been distressed with a cream chalk eye thingy.

I said I'd not totally been true to the Photo Inspiration (fingers crossed I don't get the sack!)  But it's all kinda in there, if you take a sideway's look... Maybe not the colours, but the themes (that's my excuse and I will stick to it religiously!!)

Hmmm, so before I go just time for a close up of Mr and Mrs Delight

Thanks for stopping by - your next stop is Queen Ladybug herself, aka the Boss, Kerry
