Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

It's that time of the week again for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! 

This week the challenge was set by Ang, and she challenged us to make our own designer paper!! 
Sooo where did I start? I started by tipping my craft stash out of its boxes to search for inspitation of some kind! Then I struck gold, I have a very small (under 1cm) Pawprint stamp which I bought from Elzybells when they closed down. I used brown ink on cream coloured card. I then mounted this onto brown card. 

So with this idea I then figured I should choose an appropriate stamp!! 

Would it be Buttercup? or would it be Magnum? 

Well Magnum won! 



Card blank: Craftwork cards
Image - Catflap Magnum - Ladybug Crafts Ink
Paper - Made my own
Ribbon - From stash
Flowers - Prima & Prima E.Line
Sentiment - Ladybug Crafts Ink-Sentimental numbers

Everytime I see this stamp I end up chuckling, the first card I made I showed Paul and his immediate response was "ooh This kitty don't fitty!" 

Please remember to hop on over to the other ladies blogs and have a nosey at their fab desiger your own papers!! 

See you next Tuesday for more Totally Ladybug fun!
