Good morning my lovelies! It's Tuesday. Again. Already. Can't believe it's almost May, what on earth happened to April?!
Anyways, it's time for our new Totally Ladybugs Tuesday Challenge at Ladybugs Crafts Ink. This time it's the lovely and talented Kath's turn to set the theme and she chose 'Easel Cards'.  All the Ladybugs used Magnum images, he's just the most amazing cat with so much 'cattitude'! I'm not really a cat person, much prefer dogs, but I think Magnum has such character and presence! I used this great golfing image, Fore as both my son and son-in-law are golf fanatics...and they both like cats! Image printed twice onto plain card and twice onto green dps. The 'green' and trees are paper pieced. I cut the mouse, Magnum and flag from one image, coloured with copics and placed them with sticky pads to add dimension. (Don't know if that makes any sense at all! ) A few buttons, a little tag and a sentiment. Job done!
There's also some exciting news over at the Ladybugs Challenge Blog- a new release is imminent! Yay!!!
Please feel free to grab the banner and display it on your sidebar to spread the great news!
Thanks for visiting.
