Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ Anything Goes!!

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! This week is a nice easy one for everyone, so get crafting and join in our challenge for Anything goes!!



I dug out my favourite ever LCI stamp - Daydreaming Ruby and was itching to use some of the MME pads which I bought before I had surgery and have sat untouched! I came up with a rather decieving box! (looks just like a card!) which I made for my friends 30th birthday! Needless to say as her favourite colour is tealy blue she loved the card, and loved the contents just as much! (least that is what she tells me!)
I added Thorntons chocolates to the box inside and made up a cover (took me several attempts but I got there in the end with much swearing and cursing!!) I used my go Kreate dies to cut out the centre of the box and covered with acetate! 
I did however gorget to take a picture of the edge of the box!! thats what happens when everything goes wrong and you forget to do the most important things like glamour dust Ruby's wings and take proper photos LOL ... if only life was as easy! 

Anyway whilst I have your attention I have some news to share ... the lovely Kerry has come up with a flabulous new range of stamps!! So to celebrate we are having another blog hop!! woohoo!!  So grab the banner and hop back next week to join in the fun!! You have to be in it to win it and these stamps are well worth the wait!! 


Hopefully, unless I forget something major like pressing publish then this post will be scheduled for 9am Tues morning, at that time I will be heading to the inlaws ready for Granda Vics funeral at 10am. I know I would much rather be at home looking through blogland, with a difficult day ahead I am hoping this will be the last funeral in a good few years!! (read that as decades!!!) this will be the 3rd funeral in less than 2 years and that is way more than anyone should go through!! 

Hope you will join in the fun, and pop on over to leave the girls some ladybug love!

Wow Tams! That box is drop dead gorgeous! You will definitely have to share how to make that but I think I would probably eat the chocolate before it ever made it inside!
