Ladybug Crafts Ink Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Ladybug Crafts Ink Blog Hop.  The Blog Hop started at Kerry's blog and you should have arrived here from Gaelle's blog.  If not, please go back to Gaelle's blog.  If you get lost along the way you can always check back at Kerry's blog to see the order of the hop.

This Blog Hop is to celebrate the release of the new Ladybug Crafts Ink stamps, Cupcake Cuties!  Aren't they just the cutest things ever?  The DT was given the challenge of using a Cupcake Cutie in any way we chose. 


I colored my Cupcake Cutie with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I added some glitter and liquid applique to the cupcakes.  I think they look so yummy!  I had these Doodlebug Design papers in my stash and I think they were perfect for this card.  I added some pink Pebbles candy dots in the corners and on my sentiment.  I have had these candy dots forever.  I'm glad I finally found something to use them on lol!  I used two little pieces of floss tied into bows for her hair.




OK, I know you are waiting to find out more about the Blog Hop.  There are a total of 8 stamps to be won.  Kerry, our Head Ladybug, has decided the first prize will be all 4 of the new Cupcake Cuties, and there will be four runner-up prizes of one stamp each.  How awesome is that?  So ... what do you have to do to win?  It's simple ...

1) Hopefully you already have the Blog Hop Banner on your blog (in a post or your side bar) to promote our hop.  If not, hurry up and grap it now!  You must display our banner in order to be eligible to win a prize.

2)  You must visit each of the DT blogs and leave a comment.  You'll also want to collect a letter at each blog.  These letters will spell a word.  My letter is "S".

3)  At the end of the hop, leave a comment on Kerry's blog.

4)  Email Lisa at lisa.coe@btinternet.com and tell her what your letters spell.

The Blog Hop starts today, October 5th and ends at midnight (UK time) on Sunday, October 10th.  The winners will be announced on Kerry's blog on Tuesday, October 12th. 

And, if you don't happen to win stamps from our Blog Hop, you can still be a winner.  Kerry is offering 15% off your total order over at Ladybug Crafts Ink through the end of November.  You'll need to use the discount code "CB2010" when you place your order.

OK, now hop over to Kerry's blog.  Good luck and have fun!
