Oh Baby... take three @ LCI


I could really get into the swing of using one set of images for an entire month, I don't know about you but the more I colour a certain image the happier I am :-D

Anyway this is week three of the current LCI challenge which is Oh Baby! in honour of head ladybug Kerry about to be a Nanny!  I say about as at the time of writing her daughter is too-ing and fro-ing from the hospital, so by the time you read this there may be a mini-ladybug in the world!

I'm not sure if I mentioned it last week, but commenter's were eligible to win my image (you can get it here)... sneaky huh?   My kids (seemed appropriate, given the theme!) argued between themselves then picked my winners this week... cost to me, two kinder eggs, cost to them three bruises (although one might have been from a playground incident!)

Anyway, they loved the comments from 

Congratulations ladies :-)  Please leave me a comment with how to mail you your image and I'll get it to you as soon as I can... I hope you enjoy playing with it as much as I have

Now the cat is out of the bag, if you want to win a prize too, why not comment on this post and keep looking to see if you are a winner next week!

Which brings me on nicely to this weeks card!

After using this image for a one-of-each twins card, and a girl-twin card, it seems appropriate to make a boy-twin card, well you've got to cover all eventualities don't you!

I used some MME papers, and some of the new dies I've got recently, today's card uses the new to me cloud die from Memory Box (yes I know every crafter and his/her dog has been popping clouds on their cards like forever, but it's new to me!).  I'm still not happy with my twine and how it hangs, so decided to take a leaf out of fellow LCI teamie Julie's look and leave it a bit long and drape it artfully... hmmm, need more practise at this methinks!  It seems a tad angular :-(

Here's a close up of the image, I added a touch of glamour dust to their hearts, bless...

Another couple of Memory Box dies, some luscious Berrisford's ribbon and some pearls finished this card off.  As and when someone I know has twin boys (lord help them, it's bad enough having two boys, let alone two the same age!!) I'll print a personalised sentiment and add it, but the inside is done and ready to go

Hope you like this weeks card - I do, not too much (boy's - even baby ones don't appreciate that!) but still cute never-the-less

More soon
