New Guest Designer and New Challenge

Hello Lelli-Bot fans!

Firstly, a huge thank you to Linda McNulty for her contribution over the last few weeks - if you follow Linda's blog and the Lelli-Bot Crafts Facebook group I am sure you will agree she has shared some beautiful projects.

Now on to the announcement of our Guest Designer for July

********Avril Watson********

Well done Avril, Sam will be in touch regarding your Guest Designer spot.

Thank you to the other entrants and please look out for further opportunities to be a Guest Designer.

We have no Make Of The Week this week as no-one has shared any makes this week on our Facebook group - don't be shy, share your makes and you may be featured on here and win a lovely badge to display on your blog!

And finally, we have a new challenge which will run for the rest of June and the whole of July - this isn't a Guest Designer Challenge, Sam is offering a "full works" kit as a prize for the winner.

The theme is "Lelli-Bot Leftovers" so use up all those bits and bobs you have left from your kits.

Just a few rules

Follow this blog
Add your entries (unlimited) to the linky below AND share them on our Facebook group

That's all for now, the linky is at the bottom of this post so get creating!

Hello Again

Just a short post today!

Many of you will know that our Design Team member Lisa Tyrell has been poorly and has been in hospital since last Wednesday. She remains in hospital today but is gradually improving and is hoping to be home soon - I am sure we all wish her well in her recovery.

Thank you to those who have voted in our "Christmas Kits" poll, your input is very welcome in producing kits that you want to see. If you haven't yet voted then please do!

Our Guest Designer challenge is still ongoing and can be found here.

Now to our Make Of The Week and this week the winner is Tracey Boley with this stunning decorated frame featuring the Gothic Grunge kit. 

Tracey, please contact Elaine via Facebook and she will arrange to send you the Make Of The Week badge for your blog.

If you want to be chosen as the Make Of The Week winner all you need to do is upload a finished project to our Facebook group here.

And finally, we welcome back Design Team member Emma Johnson. Emma had to take time away from the Design Team for personal reasons but now feels able to return. She will be working with the recently released digi stamps for the time being and we will share her projects with you as soon as we can.

In case you missed any of Emma's work at launch, here are a couple of her cards!

That's all for this week!

Introducing Linda and a New Challenge

Our Guest Designer for June is Linda McNulty. 

Linda will be sharing her Lelli-Bot projects via her blog and the Lelli-Bot Facebook group

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!

Now to our new Guest Designer Challenge.

****Lelli-Bot Crafts "Anything Goes" Challenge****

You can make anything you like but you must use something from the Lelli-Bot range on your project.

The challenge will close on 23rd June with the winner and Guest Designer for July being announced on the 25th June.

Please add your entries to the linky below.

Good luck!
