Spots and Stripes ........

and not a gold medal in sight ..............

Hello to all of you out there in blogland.  Are you watching the Olympics?  If so, I hope you are enjoying them.

Well, firstly sorry I have not posted for a while, I have been to Centre Parcs with my family.  We had a great time, and ate far too much in their amazing restaurants ..........  oh well, back to the diet again.

I have been crafting and have had the pleasure of working with some amazing images this week, courtesy of Bugaboo.  They are sposoring the Cutie Pie Challenge this week, and we had the opportunity to pick our favourite image to work with.  Given the challenge theme this week, I just couldn't resist ladybirds .............. I love to see them flitting about in the summer sun ........ so as you can imagine that's quite a rarity these days.

As always we have some amazing sponsors over on the Cutie Pie Challenge this week.  So go on hop on over and have a look at what the rest of the fabbie DT team have come up with for your inspiration and see what you can do with spots and stripes ...............

The moment I saw these cute ladybirds, I knew I wanted them to really pop off the card,  they have been coloured with Promarkers and then finished off with Glossy Accents.  I deliberately kept the rest of the colour scheme to black and white.  I dug out my Papermania liquorice capsule collection papers, some spotty buttons from stash, as well as ribbons and bows.  Finally I added card candi.  

I love the colour scheme on this one, I hope you do to and that I have inspired you.

Hugs for now.
