Half Term Giveaway Day 2!

Morning Everyone, Its so nice not to have to get up and go anywhere today.
Hope if you are off this week, you are enjoying the thought of a whole week in front of you to relax and enjoy. Those of you who aren't off sorry!
Well Day 2 of my Half Term Giveaway.
The rules are as follows, just to clarify. Open to all in the UK. You can enter every day. That's it.
I will be moderating the comments at 7.00pm tonight, to give everyone an opportunity to comment if they wish.
As today is Day 2 the second person to leave a comment will receive the Kit of the following Project!

This is a sneeky peek of the side of the project. Its a basket, and I used the New Template from Papertrey. It Basket Basics by Lauren Meader, I love her work (if you haven't already visit her Blog, its on my sidebar).

I stamped the cardstock - Which is Stampin' Up's Real Red - with the Seeing Spots Stamp Set. Then I inked the edges, love this technique!

Then added Real Red 1/4 in Grosgrain Ribbon, to the sides again from Stampin' Up.

This next image shows the sentiment which is The Circle of Friendship Set from Stampin' Up. This set is so versatile. This was then mounted onto a circle of Real Red cardstock which I stamped using another of the Seeing Spots Stamps. I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen to doodle the dots on the Black cardstock scalloped circle.

This is an image that I have not used for ages. I love the style of Whipper Snapper and this cute Ladybird was calling to me to be used on this project. She was coloured using Promarkers (of which I nearly have a full set).

And for the Final Project.

Isn't it lovely. I do love Lauren's templates, they are very inspirational.

So if you would like to receive the Kit form of this project, Please leave a comment.

You will receive:

Cut and scored cardstock, Stamped images and Ribbon

All you have to do is stamp the card and colour in the Ladybird.

Good luck, see you later to announce the lucky recipient of the Kit.

Bye for now!
