Ladybug Crafts Ink - Blog Hop and New Release!

Good Morning!

Big day today for all you Ladybug Crafts Ink fans.  We have a brand new release, a blog hop to celebrate with lots of fabulous prizes and a brand new challenge!

OK, first things first.  The brand new challenge today is:

"Christmas in July"

So if you would like to just join in with the challenge this time then you can do just that.  This challenge obviously ties in with our brand new release which is called "Christmas Delights".  These are all in digi and can be purchased now from the Ladybug Crafts Ink shop

So onto the hop.  You should have arrived here from the gorgeous Susan, who is our brand new Ladybug so do go and give her some Ladybug love!   If you are a little lost head back to the LCI challenge blog and start there.  

Here is my project:

 This image was made for me really!  Its called "Christmas Shoe Tree Delight".  I wanted to make something other than a card and seeing as I have just received my new Cricut machine I decided to make a little gift bag using one of the images from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  
The paper was free from a magazine a while ago, I added lots of glamour dust, some pretty ribbon and a little bag charm. I thought I had a shoe one but couldn't find it!  I hope you like it.

So onto the rules of the Hop:

1.  Leave a comment on each of the DT blogs as you hop;
2.  Each DT will have a letter for you to collect, please collect all the letters and then email the word you find to lcichallengeblog@aol.com;
3.  Leave a comment on the challenge blog letting us know what image you like best;
4. Display our badge in the sidebar to spread the word;

The winner of the hop will receive all 6 of the brand new images and 5 will receive 2 images.
My letter that you need to collect is I.

Right, you now need to hop on over to the super talented Julie.  Have fun!

Love and Hugs

  15. I love making gift bags, they're really handy when you need to wrap up a gift and you are out of wrap paper, tape and/or ribbon, and it's also quicker when in a hurry and you still want it to look good.
    I love the image, kind of a modern version of the classic holly.
