LCI New Release & A Blog Hop

Good morning bloggers I hope it's all nice and sunny in your part of the world, it certainly should be in mine at the moment! Obviously this is scheduled!!

Exciting times at 
today it's not just a normal Totally Ladybug Tuesday, all the Ladybugs are extracited as it's a Blogaversary  and Kerry is celebrating with a fab New Release and a Blog Hop and there are sooooo many prizes up for grabs!

With so much happening I don't know where to start!!

You should have arrived here from Pinky's' blog, to join in the hop just visit the Ladybugs in order, leave a comment on each of their blogs and then leave a comment on the main LCI challenge blog too.
Easy Peasy - yes?

The Fabulous new release is all about weddings, don't you just love a wedding? We were all given images to play with and none of us have seen each others cards!!
I used the two stamps I was given on the one card, I love the Wedding Cake - that's probably because I just love cake in general!! You'll have to head over to the LCI blog for all the details of the lush new stamps, as I didn't have them when I typed this - sorry, but while your there you can check to see if you were the lucky winner of last weeks challenge.

This weeks challenge has everyones favourite theme
'ANYTHING GOES'
Remember - you don't have to use an LCI image to join in but we sure love it when you do! And the winner of the challenge gets to pick the stamp of their choice!

One more thing.....every Ladybug is offering Blog Hop candy on their blog, to be eligible for this you have to have commented on each blog on the Hop and they will choose their winners from the list of commenter's.
Here's my candy

Right, now you need to know that the next stop on the Hop is Kerry's blog but don't worry if you get lost - just head back to the main challenge blog and start again!

I hope you all took advantage of the Fantastic Half Price
Stamp Of the Month last week?
If not - don't worry you still have time.

That's it from me - Happy Hopping

Love 'n Hugs Laurie xx
