Its time for the LCI Blog Hop!!

Hi Everyone!

Well its an exciting day today for all the Ladybugs!!  New challenge, new images and a blog hop to celebrate!!  Grab a cuppa and a biscuit and settle down for some fun!

So we are celebrating the release of some brand new digi images which you can get now at the LCI store.  They are called Snowman Delight, there are 6 in the set and are £1.75 each.  

You should have arrived here from our gorgeous Susan, if you get lost along the way then head back to the challenge blog to start again.

Here is my make using "Snowballs for Sale Delight":

How sweet is this little guy!!  I wanted to create a little scene and found this paper from my stash which was perfect.  I edged top and bottom with my Martha Stewart punch and added some snowflakes using my new Cheery Lynn Designs die.  I coloured my image with copics and prisma pencils and added a MASSIVE amount of glamour dust and white flower soft!!  Probably too much!!  

So onto the rules.  If you want to take part in the hop then you need to grab the banner on my sidebar and pop it onto yours.  Make your way through the hop and leave comments on all the DT and GDT blogs and then leave a comment on the challenge blog telling us what your favourite image is.  The winner will win all 6 images and there will also be five winners who will win 1 image each.

We are also running our normal challenge this fortnight which you can still take part in without doing the hop (or you can do both if you want to!)  The challenge this week is a photo inspiration one:

Phew!  You have probably eaten half a dozen biscuits by now!!  All that's left is for me to tell you that you now need to hop on over to our fabulous Guest Designer Gemma!!  

There is one final point from me which is to say that this post is my last one as a member of the design team at LCI.  Its a very sad day for me and I thought long and hard about it I can tell you.  Kerry and her fabulous images are the reason why I started my blog in the first place and they will both hold a very special place in heart, along with all the gorgeous Ladybugs!  I will miss them all!  Thank you ladies!  

That really is it from me.  Have a great day.

Love and Hugs
