Love is in the air over at Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

The good news first - Kerry is back from the CHA and us DT girls have missed her!  The second news is that it's Totally Ladybug Tuesday again!  This week the lovely Hayley has set the challenge of "Love is in the air" - should be an easy, no?!  I've already made a few Valentine Cards, but this is the one I'm going to give Steve...


Not very traditional, is it?!  But I love this Ladybug Crafts Ink stamp Nikki and Ben Walking Buttercup.  It reminds me of our regular walks where we have the best talks and the best times!  I bet you never thought I'd be so soppy, lol!  Of course, we have two mad Yellow Labradors running around us so not as sedate as this!

That's it from me today.  You'll love the rest of the DT's cards - go here to check them out!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, October Afternoon The Thrift Shop
Stamps: Ladybug Crafts Ink Nikki and Ben Walking Buttercup
Mediums: watercolouring with Distress Inks
Accents: string from stash, mini peg and rub on sentiments from stash
Tools: Whimsy Ticket die, Sew Easy Tool, EK Success border punch, Nestabilities label die (inside card)

Absolutely 101% GORGEOUS!!!! Mary, I adore your card, it's beautiful! I love the non traditional colours and whenever I see that stamp, I always think about you walking along the coast with your labs!! That's the only thing about living where we do, it's so beautiful and idyllic but sadly it's no where near the sea!
Hope you're well honey xx
