Winners of last ever challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink

Hello Peeps! Apologies for the delay in announcing the winners of our LAST EVER challenge here at LCI. Before I do I'd like to thank everyone that has stopped by our challenge blog to post entries, leave comments and generally support Ladybug Crafts Ink over the last 5 years. Personally I have loved the whole experience, have made wonderful friends but it's time for a break as it does take over your life lol.

Anywho, I hope you the winners will see this post and come forward!

The winner of the overall challenge is ...

Sale extension

My apologies for not being around for a while and not posting the winners for our last ever challenge at LCI. As some of you will know my mom passed away suddenly September 13th, 10 days after spending a wonderful month with her, my dad and sisters and I went back home for 2 1/2 weeks. It has been a struggle since I've been back and to say this has been the worst experience of my life would be an understatement but I have had amazing support from, friends, my amazing DT and blogging friends I've made over the years and I thank every one of you from the bottom of my heart. 

I haven't crafted much but need to get back into the swing of things...starting with my son in laws birthday card for tomorrow! Ladybug Crafts Ink is still closing down but as I was away for the latter part of the sale I'm extending it until October 28th. Although some stamps have sold out there are still a lot left and at only £1 a real bargain. With Christmas around the corner these would make great presents and stocking stuffers. All ribbon, felt and embellishments (except Swarorovski Crystals) and discounted 30%

I will announce the winners of the last challenge on October 28th. Thank you for your patience. xx

Grand Finale - Choose your favourite image

This is going to be a LONG post...mostly picture heavy but a bit of news too so you better put the kettle on lol. 

It's with a heavy heart that I have decided to close Ladybug Crafts Ink after 5 fabulous years. This will be the last challenge and will end 30th September. I'm sad but happy at the same time as I can concentrate 100% on my gorgeous grandson Coen.

We have invited retired Ladybugs and GD's to join the Grand Finale choosing their favourite LCI image whether it's a cling stamp or digi. Of course with every closing down comes a SALE and boy have we got a sale for you! ALL cling stamps will be on sale from today for 1 pound and all ribbon, felt, buttons and nailheads are 30% off. The Swarovski crystals will NOT be in the sale.

Due to a family bereavement, any deliveries will be delayed until October, apologies for any inconvenience caused.

We hope you'll join us in our final challenge which will be CHOOSE YOUR FAVOURITE IMAGE. We would love it if it was an LCI image but it doesn't have to be. 

There will be 2 prizes....One for the challenge and one for the challenge using an LCI image.

Pam - retired Ladybug - Posh Shopper Nikki

Pinky  - retired Ladybug

Lucy - GD - Kera

Jen (GD) - Add On Magnum

We can't wait to see what you come up with for our final challenge!!

For my challenge the Ladybugs have used one of my favourite Ladybug Crafts Ink image collections Billie Bear with my favourite style of Clean and Simple.

If you want to join in just make sure your card is CAS and if you use a Ladybug Crafts Ink image that would be great but not essential, we would just love to see your creations.

You have until 1st Septmeber to enter for a chance to win 2 cling stamps – or if you use a Ladybug Crafts Ink image you could win 4 cling stamps…….

There are some fab images available in the shop, why not pop over and take a look :)
