Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Hayleys challenge - Love is in the air!

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday, today the challenge was set by the lovely Hayley!! She chose the theme of

Love is in the air!! 

So we want to see your love themed cards!! 

I have really enjoyed making love themed cards this year, I think I must have made around 10 of them but will only actually give one to paul!! oops!! (no the rest of them will just sit in a card box LOL before you ask!) 

So onto my card, I inked up Add on Magnum with the Add ons available here and here

I coloured him in copics and glossy accented up the heart and the nose. Then I went all out and used papers which are not valentines papers!! I used Basic Grey Max and Whiskars. 

I used an EK success punch down the edge of the papers and the sentiment is one I made up on my computer ... although if you look closely I used the fabulous font that Kerry uses for her stamps! Clever eh! 

Hope you will join us in this fun challenge this week, and whilst you are in blogland hop on over to my lovely friendly ladybug friends and leave them some ladybug love!
