It's a very special Totally Ladybug Tuesday ... with a twist!

And it is one you WILL NOT want to miss!!
 Not only do we have a fab new challenge set by the lovely Guest designer Jovita, but we also have a Blog hop with prizes on every step of the way!! 

So before I start, grab yourself this lil old banner and then join in the fun! 


Now you should have arrived here from the lovely Gaelle's blog but if you haven't or you get a little lost in all of the excitement then please head on back to the main challenge blog to find your way!

So onto my project! 

The lovely Jovita has joined us for the month of December, and she has set us a fabulous challenge of 

I sat thinking about which stamp to use for a while, then ended up being busy setting up little hampers for my brother in law and 2 sister in laws, then I had a brainwave, rather than give them a boring old gold box, I could decorate the top! Which is exactly what I did, on all 3! 



You can't see the glamour dust I have used on the fluffy stuff very well as the picture quality is not the best, but I guarantee it is definately there, and lots of it! 


Trying to keep on with the gold theme, I happened to have 3 sheets of a gold looking papers from a forever friends pad, which I trimmed to size, added a punched border through the middle. I added a christmas sentiment and then got stuck in with little Buttercup! How cold does Buttercup look!! I coloured her in with my copics and added lots of fluffy stuff and glamour dust on the snow, even the falling snowflakes! I mounted the image on a Gold Mirri board and ta dah! job done, and 3 very dull looking boxes transformed into little beauties! I doubt the recipients will be bothered by the look of the boxes but hey I love them and hope you do too! 

The contents of the box have a gift voucher, and small miniature smellies as a token gift! 

Anyway ... enough waffling ... want to win some candy? 

I have this ... just for you!


Papers from Basic Grey
Sentiemnts from Craftwork cards
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
& a distress ink by Tim Holtz!

Fancy it? 

All you have to do is join in with the blog hop and collect letters along the way, but to collect the letters you need to answer the questions! 

Here is my question

The night before christmas, is called Christmas _________

There you go, a nice easy one for you! Now hop on over to Anita's blog To grab your next letter. 

Hope to see you joining in with us! 

Have a good day!
