It's Bloomin' Fabulous today!!!

Good morning.... I'm just back from a fabulous 2 week break in Cornwall, the sun shone, the food was good (just wish I'd been a little more restrained!:) and we just relaxed - bliss!
I did miss my computer and crafting (but not too much!!!), there was no wifi in the cottage so all my posts over the past fortnight were scheduled... I was so impressed that it actually worked!!!
Anyways, I'm really happy not to be missing todays fabulous New Release at Ladybugs, it's Bloomin' Fabulous!
Here's my card using the gorgeous 'Bloomin Jug' digi.
and here's another view
it's a really simple design, I just paper pieced (still my fave technique at the moment!) the lovely image and added a bit of sparkle by shading slightly with glitter pens -not that it shows in the photos!
As always there are some amazing prizes up for grabs to celebrate this New Release! Just pop over to the Challenge Blog, leave a comment telling us which is your favourite,and why and you could be the lucky  winner of all 12 of the Bloomin' Fabulous digis!!!There are also five additional prizes of 2 images of your choice, so plenty of chances to win.
The digis are available now in the shop at just £1.75 each, just click here to see them all!

Our Challenge this fortnight is 'Anything Goes', you can use any image you like, although there is an extra chance to win a prize if you use a Ladybugs Crafts Ink image! Just click HERE to join the fun!!!

This is so cute - why don't I make a circle card that opens like that - beautiful!!

Julie said...

Clever!!!!! At first I thought you'd added some clever spots in your colouring of the leaves but then I discovered that you've obviously got far too much time on your hands and you'd paper pieced the entire image! Lol, I'm only jealous, it looks amazing! Xxx

~ginny said...

Absolutely love the papers yo chose for your paper piecing of this image! Visually quite effective! I also really like the matting you have done with this one - nicely done!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful project & creativity with us!

This is just stunning Chris, love the papers that you have used and a fabulous all round card. The paper piecing is fantastic, huge fan of paper piecing as unlike you I am a very poor colourer.
