We're having a weekly challenge for the DT to take part in. This week is Head Ladybug Kerry's choice and her challenge was called "Pink plus 1" - I'm amazed one of our DT HATES pink!!! (and she has a little girl, I think that's the bit that surprises me more as having a little girl myself, you can't avoid pink!!) I know everyone has their own preferences and personal likes and dislikes and that's what makes us all special :)
I knew what colours I wanted to use (and I think far too many great minds thought alike!!!) I shall be putting up a link to the other Lovely Ladybugs in the sidebar (If I can get it to work - I might need help lol!)
Anyway, onto today's challenge... My pink plus one is green! I chose my FAVOURITE LCI stamp - Wellies Robyn! She's gorgeous and the reason why I love her so much is she reminds me with gorgeous and completed Wellies obsessed little girl Grace!!! She loves her wellies!
So here's my card...
The gorgeous Wellies Robyn - Ladybug Crafts Ink
Happy Birthday Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts Ink
Emma Burlap CS - Bazzill
Kiwi & Tutu Double Dot CS - Bo Bunny
Berry Preserves (both sides) - MME
Addi & Emma Papers - Crate Paper
Pink Double Stitch Ribbon
Twine (Prima E Line flowers at bottom of card)
I thought this might give a better indication of how the card is made - I used a technique of rolling pieces of papers to create some depth and a different look. I then wrapped twine around them and knotted the twine. I sat the matted image onto the rolls of papers and added some 3D foam to just help hold the image up.
I tried something different with Robyn's umbrella - I added spots of green and glossed just the spots! I added some flock to her bow and doesn't every girl wish she had a puddle like this to splash in!?!? Lashings of mandatory glitter - lovely!!!
You can buy ALL the papers and pearls, ribbon, cardstock, stamps etc from Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn You can also view the complete range of stamps at Ladybug Crafts Ink
I have another reason to be happy about, yesterday was the first full day in (1 day short of) 4 weeks that Grace hasn't had a temperature - could this mean the antibiotics are finally working?! I'm keeping everythings crossed. She slept from 8 through to 9:30 this morning!!!! We've been getting up at 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6am recently and it's really run me down, so much so I got a horrible stye on the inside of my eyelid, it was so painful :(
On another positive note though I had an order for 20 christening invitations, I'm part way through, they were a bit last minute order, I have until Thursday to get them made, thank goodness we didn't go for stitching!!!
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges please:
My Time to Craft - Kids At Play
Simon Says Stamp - Move It (for Robyn splashing in the puddle!)
Secret Crafter #101 - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Challenge - Ribbon & Bows (for the ribbon on the card and bow in Robyn's hair!)

OK, I think that will do for this post! Have a great Tuesday - don't forget to stop by Kerry's blog to see her post and the other Lovely Ladybug's creations!!! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
