Time for TLT - This week is Tams' Challenge....

Oh gosh, the last TLT of the year :(
Apologies for the late post, I felt rather poorly last night and went to bed early. I'd read for 2 hours then tossed and turned for another 2 and Grace woke up at 2am.... great! She had a high temperature and was rather unsetttled. I stayed with her for as long as I could and went back to bed. I feel exhausted, I don't know why I didn't sleep well as usually I read until I can't keep my eyes open any more!
I was meant to be going out with my Mum this morning to try and finish a few bits off but that didn't happen. We're snowed in and I feel like a zombie, Grace still had a temp too - sob...

Anyway, onto this weeks' challenge set by the wonderful Tams. Boy this was a tough one for me!!! Out of everyone's challenge this was the one I was dreading LOL!!!! (Sorry Tams, this one made me struggle!)
Tams' Challenge is - SONG TITLE - create a card using a song title as the theme - GULP!
For months/weeks all I could think of was using Buttercup and "How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?" oh dear.... I was rattling my poor old brain for weeks trying to think with no luck.
Finally on Sunday I was listening to a CD in the car and had a little "lightbulb" moment -"ping" - did everyone else hear it?!
So here's my card...
I decided to use Martini Nikki as I haven't inked her up for a while. I had some very very fine gold glitter which I'd come across the other day whilst looking for something else - perfect I thought for Nikki's blouse and whilst I was at it, I thought I'd give her eye shadow and a matching glass/drink and cushion trim too :)

Well before I tell you what it is, I'll leave you to guess a for a little while...

I added swarovski crystals to her ear (she has another hiding underneath her hair!) and also added a choaker too for extra blingyness.

So any ideas?!?!?!

Whilst i leave you to think about that, I'll announce the winner of my blog candy!!!

The winner is...

Well done!!! Can you please email LCI ladybugcraftsink@aol.com - with your address details so I can send your prize - Thank you. 

So I guess I've kept you waiting long enough...

My card was inspired by the brilliant and very catchy song by Sam Sparro - BLACK & GOLD!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!!! Stay safe and warm!! And TLT will be back on the 4th January!
