TLT Blog Hop - **NEW RELEASE**

Oh what a great day this is going to be - we have NEW STAMPS being released at Ladybug Crafts Ink and let me tell you, these are some of my FAVORITES!  Before we get to my creation, let's get the basics out of the way.

To get all the deets to play along (one person will win all 4 new stamp sets as well as 4 runner up prizes - WOW), start HERE (Challenge Blog)  If you get lost, you can always visit the Blog and pick back up where you left off.




Also, Queen Ladybug would like everyone to know that the stamps are available today (HERE) through May 2nd at the fabulous price of £5.50! 

You should have arrived at my blog from the ultra-talented Lisa; yeah...her creation was BREATHTAKING eh?

OK, so now that we have that out of the way, let's peek at my card(s) - yep; I made two; would like to make a whole set - which I probably will as I just love these stamps!

I wanted to work towards an assembly line style card (can 2 cards be considered an assembly line?  HA HA); anyway, I started with PTI's Fine Linen and layered on a couple different papers from MME (surprised by that eh?); I colored the flip flops a bit differently on each card and tied on coordinating ribbons.  The beach bag was paper pieced in each image; in one I colored the tie-on in blue to match the paper; on the other, I popped up an extra tie-on to give it a bit more dimension.

Super simple cards but seriously, are these images not just the CUTEST?  Oh yes, I love them!

Don't forget to leave a little love before you go, you never know if YOU will be the lucky winner!  Next up on the hop is the seriously gifted Sue!

Thanks for popping by; I love when you visit!

...flip flops, beach bags and sunshine...Hugs, ~M.
