Let's Play Bingo @ LCI

Good morning again I'm back with my 2nd DT post of the morning.


It's TLT time over at 
and we are all getting in the party mood ready for Christmas.
The lovely Sue has decided we should be playing party games and has given us a game of
We all chose our favourite embellishment and picked a square (Brilliant idea Sue) and this is what you have to play with
Pick a line, up, down or diagonal (from corner to corner) or if you want to show off (no names mentioned here lol but check out the challenge blog!) go for a full house! Be sure to let us know in your post which line you have chosen.

I've gone across the bottom with Buttons, Die Cuts & Pearls
 And I've used one of my favourite LCI stamps Jack & Robyn 'Gotcha' available HERE
My papers are from an Echo Park Spots & Stripes Christmas 6x6 pad and I've finally got to use one of my new Memory Box dies. It's all glittered and blinged up but you can't see from this picture! The snowflake brads are from Sir Stampalot, I couldn't resist calling in on my way through the other day. When I was searching for a Christmas Animal stamp (for my other DT post today) I found 3 packs of these Christmas messages that I'd forgotten I had! As most of my cards have been made now I thought I ought to use one! The tiny buttons are Papermania.

I hope you can find time to join us for this challenge, the Ladybugs are resting their wings over Christmas so this will run till the 2nd of January. Remember you don't have to use an LCI stamp to join in but we love it when you do.
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and while you're there check to see if you made the top 3 or won last week and don't forget to see what the Ladybugs made for your inspiration and leave them some Ladybug love.

That's all from me for today, don't forget if you didn't get your Stamp Of The Month at half price last week there's still time HERE 
Thank you for taking the time to visit
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x

Hi sweetie!
Long time, atleast days since I have visited you! I love all your cards, you know that! But the one with the door is amazing and this sweet grey card is just fantastic, with the sweet image and the lovely snowflakes!
And your blog makeover was super, it looks very chic in here now ;)
Wishing you a fantastic day and I hope you bought everything you were out for! I was out the whole day, and only ended up with some new craft stuff for myself and going to the postoffice to send some more cards and gift to my sweet friends. Not a single christmas gift for the kids! Shame on me :)
But tomorrow is a new day! lol
big hugs
