TLT - Challenge Blog & A Blog Hop eeeeeek!!

Oh my goodness!!! What a week! Well I guess we'll get straight into today's post and it's a Tuesday and that can only mean one thing - It's TLT!!! Totally Ladybug Tuesday and a special day for Ladybug Crafts Ink as we're firstly celebrating the launch of the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog - CLICK HERE AND the launch of a new stamp collection by Ladybug Crafts Ink! What a treat!!!

So firstly on this blog hop you should have arrived here from my lovely Ladybug friend PINKY and if you haven't you need to go back to the start and begin this fun trip! CLICK HERE FOR THE BEGINNING

This week to celebrate the launch of the new collection of stamps we were each given a stamp from the launch and Mary J set the challenge for this weeks' TLT which was a sketch... with a twist! We had to decorate the inside of our card too!!

This is the sketch Mary J came up with...

And this is my take using the gorgeous new stamp! Nikki with the rather handsome man in her life... Ben!

Don't they look perfect together!?
I used some of my favourite Christmas papers by Bo Bunny and wanted to play a little bit with the challenge and decided the hearts were a good idea for a love theme! Sooooo, what do you think? I hope Mary J likes my take on her challenge!!!

I decided to give Ben a little "designer stubble" lol!!! I added some stickles to the mistletoe and Nikki's hat, I couldn't resist using glitter (or the sewing machine!)
So, for the twist we had to decorate the inside of the card...

I used the very first border punch I ever bought for this one! (I'd forgotten until recently that I had it!!)
I thought the holly worked well!
So you're asking what do you need to do in order to win some fabulous new goodies!???
