Pink & Brown Circles at LCI


Hello again, I still can't quite believe that I have two cards to post every other Tuesday! LOL Oh to be in demand!!

Tuesdays aren't just any old Tuesdays anymore - Now they are Totally Ladybug Tuesdays and that means its a new challenge at 

and what a fab challenge this one is! Set by our very own lovely ladybug Michele.....
Pink & Brown with Circles
Show me anyone who doesn't like pink & brown together!!
I love it and the circles made this one a lot of fun for me.
Now I never make anything other than sqaure cards,  but on my birthday I received a card from my blog buddy Debs and I was amazed by it. So amazed that I had to have a go at it myself and this is my go....not a patch on Debs card to me but I'm still really pleased with it. I have to point out at this moment that because I wanted to make this card so much .....I had to buy a Grand Calibur!!! Thanks again Debs!!
As it cost me so much to make LOL I want you to see it from every angle!!
That gorgeous ribbon is from LCI and you can get it here. I used Robyn stamp who is just as cute as a button I know I will use and use her time and time again. I did a tiny bit of paper piecing on her dress,  I thought she was thin enough to get away with horizontal stripes LOL! The flowers are from WOC  and I've used my favourite papers of all time Making Memories Cosomopolitan.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge and to see what gorgeous inspiration the Ladybugs have created for you and if you haven't looked yet - it might be you that won last weeks challenge or made the top 3!

And most important of all
Don't forget you can still get the Stamp Of The Month at Half Price

Thank you for visiting
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

LOLOLOLOL...I love the fact you bought a Grand Calibur just to make your card THAT's dedication!! I must say it's making me think I NEED one now...LOVE your card and of course the image you used is mega (I had all my stash laid out including the image the night before I made it then made the mistake of looking at the DT blog and saw you used Robyn too!) I was never a great fan of the flowers you use (Tams will vouch for that) but you make them look amazing..I especially love the big one in the middle. Gorgeous! xx
