Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Pami's Challenge - Celebration

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

This time it was the lovely talented Pami's turn to choose the challenge and she chose Celebration! I had to make a last minute card for a special friend, who turned 30 on saturday, this card was to be given to her from her little boy Oliver. Knowing how cute and cheeky Oliver is, I dug out Guilty Jack and coloured him in similar colours to what Oliver wears and looks like. I then added some small foam letters onto the bottom to spell out MAMMY (yes not mummy or mommy as she is a proper geordie lass and up here they all say mammy!)

Papers - Jillibean Soup
Image - Guilty Jack (coloured in copics)
Alphabet - Papermania
Buttons from stash

Why not hop on over to the challenge blog and join in the fun, and whilst there check out the beautiful creations from the other ladybugs and leave them a little ladybug love!

Road to recovery is going well, and hopefully Paul will be able to head back to work very soon, but we had some bad news on Sunday night. My MIL's Dad passed away in hospital, he was a very poorly man in the end, but missed by all. RIP Vic, no longer suffering. 

Please bear with me whilst I try and get back to normality, life keeps throwing everything at us at the minute ...

Your card is very beautiful. May you keep all the good memories of Vic and remember him with the kind fondness that brings up smile rather than tears...
