Stamp Of The Month at LCI

A very good frosty morning to you all out there in Blogland. Christmas is definitely coming and a little snow too which might be nice! Not too much though.

It's the first Totally Ladybug Tuesday of the month which means a brand spanking new Stamp Of The Month over at
and of course a new challenge to go with it, this week chosen by my very special friend Lisa. Lisa helped me on my way into blogland, she was one of my first, if not the first of my followers and is entirely responsible for 2 of my 3 DT positions - Thank you sweetie! xx This week Ladybug Lisa would like to see some
Snowflakes and Sparkle
The Ladybugs were all given the fabulous new SOTM to play with for this challenge.
Introducing......Tom & His Snowman!! 
Available here at half price for the whole of December!
I've used a wee bit of artistic licence here and this is Toms twin sister Thomasina as he/she is all dressed in pink! Shows how versatile these fabby little stamps are. All my papers are DCWV and I've sparkled up my Magnolia snowflake die cut. A little bit of black ice cut with a Marianne die.

Head over to the main challenge blog to check out all the fabulous Ladybug inspiration, and this week we have 3 fabulous GDT making their debuts so please give them a visit and show them some Ladybug Love! Don't forget to check if you were a winner last week or if you made the lovely Pams top 3.
Remember you don't have to use an LCI stamp to join in with the challenge but we love it when you do!

I'm off to make a start wrapping presents
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
