Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Sue's Christmas Sparkle Challenge

It has crept around very fast, its Tuesday once again which means time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday. 

This week it is time for Sue to give us a challenge, and she has chosen Christmas Sparkle!

I sat and found lots of lovely LCI stamps and made them into small piles, then I found the perfect stamp to use!! 

Letter to Santa Ruby (I loooove Ruby! she is just so perfect!) 


I love this stamp, but hadn't had a chance to ink her up. Perfect for a bit of christmas sparkle! The papers are Crate Paper Snowy day and whilst they are not all traditional colours they are just fantastic! I mounted Ruby onto a scallop circle, then did another circle and again on another scallop, I love the effect it gave and the red scallops are mulberry paper so look like they have been screwed up!! I then added lots of glamour dust, to the snow, and Ruby's cuffs on her coat. I added a couple of deep red roses which I sat on some white flat flowers. I just happened to have a craftwork cards sentiment which relates to letters and notes! Do I like this card? Yes I do! 

And no comments about the PINK! LOL 



Trying to show off some of the glitz! 

So why not hop on over to the other ladies blogs and have a look at their flabulous cards and remember to leave some ladybug love! 

Challenge will run for 1 week and we have a cracking prize as always .... so why not join in the christmas spirit here!

Please remember that the lovely Kerry has a special offer on with a discount code ... 


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
