Sorry for the delay in getting a new post up - Elaine, who writes the blog, has been busy job hunting so hasn't had much spare time these last few weeks!
Lelli-Bot Crafts are launching a Design-A-Digi competition.
You can hand draw or electronically design a digi stamp - it must be your own work but can be any design/theme you like!
The prize for the winner is that your digi stamp will be added to the range on the Lelli-Bot website and you will receive 20% commission for every one sold - how amazing is this?
Please add your designs to the album on the Lelli-Bot Lovers Facebook Group, the closing date to get your entry in is 6th August.
Please watermark your entry prior to adding it to the album - if you don't it will be removed and you will be asked to re-add it once it is watermarked!
Finally, a reminder that our challenge to win a "Full Works" kit is still ongoing until the end of the month - you can enter hereusing up all your Lelli-Bot leftovers! We need a few more entries to make it a competition so do please join in, there is still plenty of time to enter.

We thought a short "bio" introducing Linda would be a nice idea so here goes!
I'm 56 feel like a 40 year old but can't get my hands on one!! lol I have 3 grown up kids and 4 grandchildren. I'm a kinda semi-retired biker. I started making cards around 3 years ago, my sister made cards and thought I would give it a try. I had only been making cards for about three months when I entered The Quick Cards Made Easy magazine's 100th issue competition, there were 10 prizes up for grabs, well I was gob-smacked when a parcel arrived to say congratulations I was one of the 10 winners. Last year I entered Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine using the free item to make a card, this was a Christmas Tree die, my card was printed in the magazine so another prize arrived. When making cards I try to find out the hobbies of the recipient and incorporate them into the card. I get messages back saying "thank you they loved it" so if they are happy so am I. I like to think outside the box which you have seen with my cards and I'm about ready to make another one with a twist !!!
Now on to our regular feature - Make Of The Week
Our winner, with this beautiful card using Radiant Butterflies, is Linda Simpson.
I am sure you will agree it is a beautiful card, Linda as a previous winner you already have the Blog Badge which you can now display for a second time!
Design Team member Lisa has been busy creating with the newly released digi stamps.
Take a look at these amazing cards!
Aren't they fabulous? Lisa has made these cards so that the images are the main focus and you can see their transformation once coloured.
The current range of digi stamps are available on the Lelli-Bot Crafts website here.
Now to our Make Of The Week and it is this card by Christine Harman using Pure Elegance - Butterflies and Lace.
Please get in touch Christine and we will get your blog badge to you and well done!
Well that's it for this week - don't forget our ongoing challenge using the following digi stamp. You can request a pre-coloured version if you prefer, please see the blog post dated 30 April for full details.
Design Team member Lisa has made this gorgeous card using Prom Dress "Lisa"
I have digitally coloured all four of the Prom Dresses and will be sharing my makes with you in a future blog post. Digital colouring is great if your colouring skills are, like mine, a "work in progress!"
Prom Dress "Elaine"
Prom Dress "Emma"
Prom Dress "Helen"
Prom Dress "Lisa"
Now to a reminder of our current challenge, we have extended the end date of the challenge to 28th May, the winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for the month of June.

Our products can now be found on various online stores, craft shops and at craft fairs and these outlets are continuing to grow. Our digi store is almost ready for launch too!
This month has also seen the launch of our amazing Design Team who have been working hard to make samples and designs from our products to help promote the company.
