OK I can now burst with my exciting news!!! I've been bubbling for days now and barely been able to contain my excitment!!
Kerry (aka Head Ladybug & Miss Whiplash (don't ask!)) has been on the hunt for her new Lovely Ladybugs - her very own LCI Design Team and guess what?!!? I so happy and excited to announce that I am now part of this amazing DT!!!

Kerry is the owner of Ladybug Crafts Ink and creates beautiful cling stamps sold to the public and also suppliers them to stores like mine! I was the first shop in England to actually stock her stamps (very proud of this!) I thought they were fantastic!! Since her first releases Kerry has created several sets of amazing stamps and characters including Nikki, Ruby, Robyn, Magnum, Jack and Buttercup! I don't think I could pick a favourite they're all gorgeous and cute!

I'm working alongside several other incredibly talented ladies and we have a real international theme going on with ladies from Scotland/Canada, Ireland, USA, South Africa, France and England!! Here are my fellow Lovely Ladybugs - please visit their blogs too and congratulate them, we're still getting to know each other but after a very fun night last night, it feels like we've firmly bonded as friends already:

I've also attached one of the cards I made for my "audition" I shall be posting the other 2 in the next couple of days. I still don't know which one to pick but whichever I click first will be the one lol!!

OK Wellies Robyn won and I found her first! I love this card and the colours!

I made a side stepper card and thought it would be fantastic for a little girl's Birthday!
Crafty Ingredients:
Wellies Robyn (LCI)
Bo Bunny Buttons
Bo Bunny Buttercup 5/8" Ribbon
Basic Grey Baby Girl papers.
Twine, Gloss 3d foam pads
CS - Bazzill Basics.

I love the colours and thought they suited Wellies Robyn so well! I won Wellies Robyn in one of Kerry's giveaways and chose her becuase my little girl Grace is OBSESSED with wellies and Robyn reminded me so much of Grace! I made her umbrella 3d by using some foam squares. I also used glossy accents on some of the puddle and rain drops. I stitched the ribbon to create the ruffled effect and I think it turned out really well. I was so pleased with this card, it was the first one I'd made for my audition (I've sorted my order now, I'm going to do them in the order I made them - sorted!) I printed the sentiment on the computer. Hope you enjoy the card!
