Morning my Lovely Ladybug Challenge follwers, think I'm in for a severe telling off from Head and Deputy Ladycows (ooops!)
I've got laptop issues - my laptop cable has been chewed through... yes chewed through, not by a mouse... by a Grace!!!! I don't think it's recent but I think the damage has got progressively worse over time and the poor cable won;t work and charge my laptop any more!!! I called the tech guys last week as we have an accidental cover and they said they'd send out a new cable but as yet nothing has shown up!!! MAJOR HMPF!! It's hard enough trying to get TLT sorted on Husband's laptop but trying to run a business too....!!!!!

Anyway I'll keep this short and very sweet this week! Amber, our lovely Guest Designer for January came up with the challenge Plum Crazy with Stitching!!! Well I like purple a lot but don't use it on my cards much I noticed! Here's my take!

How cute is Buttercup in her beautiful Plum House?!?! I wanted to make my Sister a Birthday card and asked her what her favourite colours were (red, purple and green) so I took the opportunity to make her a purple (with some green) Birthday card using Buttercup! The sentiment is also by LCI.
I also used some Bo Bunny Jazmyne Effloresce and Terrace papers and Olive Double Dot CS along with Boysenberry DD ribbon. The papers are in my sale at the moment!! I used contrasting leaf green stitching so that it would stand out :)
Hope you like it, I'm very pleased with how she's turned out!! It's Amber's last week with us - I wish you lots of luck and happiness and we'll see you around blog land!

Lastly, I'm not sure whether you know but Kerry is going to LA THIS WEEK!!!!!! ARRRRGHHHH 2 MORE SLEEPS!!!  I just wanted to wish Kerry all the luck in the World (although I'm sure the others will agree we should have had a field trip outing to help LOL!!) I know you won't need the luck as the stamps and samples are incredible!!! I hope it goes REALLY REALLY well, keeping my fingers crossed.
