Fall and a Fold at LCI

Surprise!! I'm still here. No doubt you have wondered what has happened to me AGAIN!! I keep saying I've been a bad blogger but I'll get better and I don''t get any better...BUT and its a big BUT I've made most of the wedding invites, they are being collected today, by my nephew and that means after my trip to London tomorrow (Tea at the Ritz! - a birthday present) I will have time to make cards!!!

Now I have some more exciting news....
fresh from my GDT at 

last week I have been asked to stay on as a 
Fully Fledged Ladybug!! 
So I'm here today posting with my brand new shiny Ladybug wings for the challenge that has been set this week by my new teamie Amanda and she wants to see

Fall Colours and a Fold 

that gives us all lots of options, a tent fold, an easel, a tri fold shutter, and so on....
I've used the fabulous Roadster Nikki from LCI and the lush papers are from Kaiser Crafts Up and Away pad. I've just made over 100 easel card wedding invitations so I thought 1 more wouldn't hurt!
The flowers are from Prima and have been in my stash 'FOREVER"
The winner will receive a stamp of their choice and there's so many fabulous stamps to choose from here
You don't have to use an LCI image to enter the challenge but we love it when you do, head over to the main Ladybugs Craft Ink Challenge blog for all the details and to see what the lovely Ladybugs have made for your inspiration.

Thank you girls for inviting my onto your team - I love it!
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity - Autumn Days
Cute Card Thursday - Mindy's Sketch
Crafty Catz - Autumn
