TLT - Blog Hop!!

Good Morning Everyone!

An exciting day today!  Totally Ladybug Tuesday is back after its summer break and we are starting off with a blog hop AND a new release!!  Woo Hoo!!!  Grab a cuppa and read on!!  
Kerry has a new release of "The Wrinklies"You will love them!  So we are celebrating with a blog hop and there will be lots of chances to win a prize! All the DT were given an image to use from the new release (none of us have seen each other's work so we will all be joining in the hop as well!)  

You should have arrived from the fabulous Lisa, if you get lost along the way then head back to Kerry to start from the beginning. After me you need to head over to the uber talented Mary.

So here is my little creation. 

I wanted to do an easel card but they are so difficult to photograph!  I am really sorry if you can't get a proper feel as to what this looks like!  Don't you just love the sentiment!  I paper pieced the rug, I wanted to try and create a living room scene but not sure it really worked!!  I used some buttons and bakers twine to embellish the card.  I hope you like it, the image really was a lot of fun!  

So onto the rules:

a) Visit each of the DT members in order and leave a comment on each of their blog hop posts;

b)  leave a comment on the challenge blog stating which is your most favourite of the new images once you have finished the hop;

c) Display the blog hop banner which is at the top of this post on your blog, either in a post or on your side bar.

The First Prize is the full set of all 6 stamps and then 3 runners up will receive one stamp of their choice from the new release.  That's the first part!  The second part is the challenge and this week the theme is:


 So you have 2 ways to win a prize, you can just play along with the hop or enter the challenge, or you can do both!!

If you don't win you can still enjoy the stamps at a discount price as the stamps will be on sale from today for £5.99 (normal RRP £6.99) until next Tuesday.

Phew!  I think that is it!  Don't forget to head over to Mary J next and have a lot of fun!!  Let us know what you think about the new releases!
