Ladybird, Ladybird xxx

Hi peeps xxx

I've done another 1 card = 4 challenges again here, and they are -

Pink Elephant - Summer (ladybirds are very summery, don't ya think)
Allsorts - In An English County Garden (plenty of them in my garden)
Cute Card Thursday - Lazy Days (again a Summer theme)

and finally I used the wonderful sketch over at Sketch and Stash and I've used my new download which is the fabulous Ladybird. She's another of the new Frillie Millies from Pink Petticoat.

Now just for a change, I did a bit of a hybrid thingie with lil Miss Ladybird. Some of her has been coloured in on the old 'puter and some of her has been coloured in using the bad boy PMs.

The reason I did this is because as much as I 'heart' my PMs - and you know I do really 'heart' them lots, the reds and black can bleed like a stuck pig (ohhh hold that thought - I've just gone all funny and brought tears to my own piggy eyes lol xxx)


So this is the old card.

And for some reason, the area around the sentiment (Woodware) looks really wonky but I promise you IRL it's quite straight - I'd tell you if it wasn't.

However, I can't say the same for one side of the card and I obviously have not stuck the first layer on with as much care and attention as I should have. Major slapped trotters - slap dash Dawny strikes again, sorry chicksters xxx

The fab spotty paper is PP - Really Big Dots - and I made the lil ladybird using a couple of nesties, some punched dots, 2 beads and a couple of head pins!!!

It may not be anatomically correct but it's a tad funky I thought ;)

And that's me card.

Have you noticed that the old MSBP has been conspicuous in it's absence? Well that's because it has been on its hols. It has been spending a bit of time with my aunty who has probably been nicer to it than I usually am and spoiling it rotten lol xxx But it came home last night so now doubt it will be back on here very soon.

There's no place for slackers in this pink pig sty, let me tell you!!!

I'm hoping to have some more cardage to share tomorrow. However, Emma is off on her annual pilgrimage to the V Festival so we are in charge of her Ladyship for 4 days, which means that there may not be much going on in the craft department!!

But you never know!!!!

Have a great day and hugs to all xxxx
