Make It Monday #33 - Welcome to the New MIM Design Team


Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. We are finally enjoying some wonderful weather here in Far North Queensland. The wet season this year seemed to go on forever but I'm hoping that this recent improvement in the weather signals better things to come.

Another great week last week for Make It Monday. It is wonderful to see so many of you joining in the fun and I really enjoy coming to visit you all. I see too that quite a few of you got in to the spirit of MIM and were leaving lovely comments for some of the entries.

Winners from MIM#32

 This week's featured blogger as chosen by is...................

Carisa just loves Fairies, Mermaids, all those mythical beautiful creatures and her blog is over flowing with the most amazingly beautiful creations. Her colouring is completely out of this world.

Please take a tour of Carisa's amazing blog and remember to leave her a little message to say hi.

Second prize winner from last week was won by

Emily from Cool Cricut Creations who left a lovely comment for Rochelle

Emily please contact me at so that I can tell you how to claim your prize.

The new Make It Monday Linky is open at the top of my blog.

Our sponser this week is the lovely Kerry from Ladybug Crafts Ink
Here's a little note from Kerry

My name is Kerry and although I'm originally from Vancouver , BC I've lived in Glasgow Scotland for the past 27 years.

I'm married with 3 grownup kids and in the process of planning a wedding with my daughter for next year!

I started making cards 11 years ago and brought out my own range of stamps in summer 2009. I felt the stamp world needed a new character and Nikki & Friends was born. Since then Nikki's got herself a boyfriend and a dog and Magnum & Lily are causing havoc. I have designed 10 different ranges under the Ladybug Crafts Ink (LCI) name so I'm sure there's a character for everyone!

I am very excited to be a sponsor for Make IT Monday and wish Michelle and her team much success.

Thank you Kerry, it is great to have you here with us on MIM.

Kerry is kindly offering this weeks second prize

the Stack of Cupcakes stamp from the Cupcake Cuties set.

Head on over to Ladybug Crafts Ink and check the rest of the Cupcake Cuties here.

Welcome to the new Design Team

The Design Team call ended last Friday and I just want to say thank you to all the wonderful ladies who applied. I can honestly say it was pretty tough to choose the final four to join my Mum, Shirley-Anne and I on the MIM team. You are all incredibly talented and I hope that you will continue to join us here every week.
The new team have put together some beautiful cards to inspire you this week
Please hop on over to their blogs and say hello and help me welcome them to the MIM team.

First up here is my card

I have used "Wagon full of cupcakes" from our sponsor Ladybug Crafts Ink
