Back to crafting!

Thank you for indulging my recent Mummy-ness! But now for something completely different...

A card!!!

This one was a toughie for me. It was for a Colour Challenge on In Love With Stamping, and the challenge was to use Real Red, More Mustard, Basic Black and Whisper White. I dont do bright!

It made me think of a ladybird (which is going to be my tatoo on my 40th - but thats a WHOLE 'nother story!) so, when I saw the 'Patterned Bugs' stamps at Michaels I had to get them...

Anyway heres my effort!

Cardstock, inks, glitter and ribbon are all Stampin up. I used a Fiskars border punch and the ladybird from the 'Patterned Bugs' set from Inkadinkado. Really cute!

More cards to come... I want to share with you the cards we made at my Stampers Club on Wednesday. Thank you to Karen (My new SU Demo) for making me feel so welcome. Im looking forward to the next get together!
Her cards are gorgeous, (although she claims no responsibility for them!) her style is very clean and simple and she likes things straight, just like me!!! I cant do collage or scrapbook anything that isnt straight, my brain hurts and people laugh at me as I talk to myself 'No, not straight...'. Everyone has their different styles thats what makes crafting so great... Theres no right or wrong, just differences!

Back later...
