Swingin' The Blues

Hello lovely people I'm back with another little card to share with you today that I made a few weeks ago and didn't get around to posting.

But before I show you I have to tell you the exciting goings on at
  Its a new release but with a fabulous twist!

Kerry has been working her little socks off to come up with two brand new characters and everyday a different member of the DT will be showcasing different images - so thats a new release everyday with prizes up for grabs everyday too!
That's right, the two images released each day will be won one by one lucky commenter EVERY DAY! for 2 weeks!
To keep up with the events check in at the LCI challenge blog each day, there you will find all the details and all the winners!
My turn is a little later in the week so keep checking back, here's a sneaky peak of whats in store from me!

Don't forget to visit LCI for todays release from the head Ladybug herself, Kerry

Now for my card. I made this a few weeks ago and never got around to posting it, and as I didn't have a card to post today I thought it was a good opportunity to put this up! Ideally I would have liked to post an LCI card but unfortunately I wasn't organised enough!
The image is of course LOTV and now I've actually used it 3 times! Shock horror it will be worn out at this rate! I've used my lovely favourite rolled roses die and the papers are Stampin' Up,  the ribbon, lace and butterfly were all from my stash. I'm trying to be much better at actually using my stash and not saving things!

Thank you for checking in with me today, I have Lisa (My Makes 'n' Me) and her partner Michael coming for supper tonight and I hope we'll sneak a bit of crafting in!
I've been busy at work this week getting ready for the start of a new summer season but I promise I'll find some time to visit everyone later this week

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
