Billie Bear New Release @ LCI

Good morning guys, I hope you are all safe and warm can you believe what this weather is doing?
I have just started getting our shops ready for the summer season and I can tell you I have ZERO inclination to be on the beach front!! Me thinks we won't be selling much ice cream and beach stuff this Easter bank holiday.

It's time for a brand new challenge and another fabby new release from
with everyones favourite theme
Anything Goes

Introducing the adorable 'Billie Bear' Isn't he a cutie, there are 15 different Billies around blog land today, head over to the main LCI blog to find out where he is and what he's up to!
None of us have seen any of the new release images other than our own so we are all a tad excited to see what the rest of the DT have made.

All of the details can be found on the challenge blog, I'm off to have a look there myself!

Thanks for stopping by today, I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Diva's if I get it made in time!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

A stunning card. The colours make me want macaroons now !

Kathleen said...

Great style of card and fabulous choice of colours. Love the flowers with the tiny button centers. Cute image but looks like she should have a crown on her head in a chair like that.
Kids are kids and they always want an ice-cream no matter what the weather.
They can always warm themselves up afterwards with a hot dog, or bag of chips and maybe a doughnut or two. A plate of prawns, candyfloss.
A dip in the freezing sea and cagoole's on the beach. Don't know how to spell cagoole's.

I woke up to more snow this morning Laurie and I've heard the weather's to be like this until the end of April!!!!! Stupid weather hmph! I just love your card and the colors you've used. I can never quite get to grips coloring pastel...a bit too heavy handed but you've done a fabtastic job. The flowers are fab as is the crinkly bow and the little buttons. Just a beautiful card :-D xx
