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!!

Winners of Anything Goes & New Release

Morning sorry for the delay in getting the winners to you. My excuse...I forgot...grandma brain strikes again lol. I remembered at 11 last night but by that time all I wanted was my bed!

Thank you to everyone who entered. I had a bit of a problem commenting so I apologize if I didn't leave a comment on your blog. I keep getting ad pop ups and although I've done all the recommended fixes it's still happening. Sometimes I can click on comment 5 times and another window opens to a Canada Tax or other equally annoying page. I was losing the will to live and finally gave up in frustration...if anyone has any guaranteed solutions to stop these pop ups I would be forever grateful.

Anywho enough of my moaning, here are our winners...

For the overall challenge the winner of 2 digi's is...

Sadly for the 2nd Challenge running there were no entries using an LCI image :-(

The Top 3 are...

The winners of the 12 images from the Bloomin' Fabulous Collection is...
